Question about 1992 Toyota Camry V6
I have a 1992 Camry and i have a friend who has exacly the same model. I used my friend's car for about 2 weeks before getting mine and was impressed by the gas mileage, but was disappointed that my own Camry gave me far less than what my friend's car did.
One thing I noticed though, in mine, is that there is always a sound like an air leakage from a suction pump coming from the hood whenever the engine is running, and it increases with acceleration. I checked to see what it was and it appears to be coming from a cracked air intake hose connecting the air filter and the injector. could this be the cause of the high gas consumption, or does the car have compression problem too? What else could be the cause and what is the solution?
Most definitly that leak is leaning out the motor so the oxy sensor thinks therse not enough fuel and tells the injectors to put more fuel in.All parts of the air box must be leak free.The air filter should be clean and the lid securely fastened.A compression test would tell you the health of the cylinders and wether theyre working efficiently.The lower the compression ratio the less effectivly the fuel is burnt.If you have around 140-150 your engine is in a reasonable condition.
