Just an idea... install a free-flow air filter like a K&N brand filter for example & then get the air flow meter adjusted again... if you can afford it, a shop with a dynamometer & performance tuning skills will be able to do the best job for you. there may be a user-adjustable ECU available for your model so you can set it up for economy by you as needed too...

Camry engine shuts down


code p3190 refers to low engine power--malfunction. Possible causes ---intake system, fuel system---mechanical fault---Mass air flow sensor---engine coolant temperature sensor---crankshaft position sensor---camshaft position sensor --- ECM. I would start with the water coolant sensor as if it reads boiling it will shut down the engine.

2002 toyota camry engine knocking


A light knock at the top of the engine, or ticking, is the valve gear. This is not a worry if it eases when the engine is hot.
A heavier knock down lower indicates trouble with the engine bearings, and this will usually get louder as the engine becomes hot.
These problems have arisen in Camrys due to engine oil sludging. This starves the bearings of oil and they wear quickly. Toyota says it affects engines up to a 2001 build, but I have heard of 2002 engines being affected as well. Toyota insists it is due to owner neglect, but they have taken it on in limited circumstances:

A light rattling sound when the engine is under load indicates you should try a fuel with higher octane rating, although this would be unusual in your model unless you are using a fuel with high ethanol.

I have a 2008 mercury Milan with nearly 60k miles on it. When I come to a stop the rpm drops by 1000 then recovers quickly. What should I do to fix the problem? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I have a 1990 Toyota Camry and the Light Icon come on when I put it into gear, and when I stop at a light the car loses power and it almost wants to shut off, but when I put it in neutral it doesn't s


would need head under the bonnet to be sure and a play with my dirty greasy hands but i wouls suspect that you have a faulty steeper motor ,its a electric motor that allows more air into the inlet manifold to maintain the idle ,it may just need a clean thats all .if in doubt ask a local mechanic recomended by a friend to have a look for you

Toy turns over but wont run change fuel filter n fuel pump still


The fuel pump should run for a second or two when you first turn the key on, but then shuts down to prevent the engine from flooding if the computer does not get a signal from the crank or cam sensors which the computer uses to trigger the ignition system. So no spark no fuel. Check to see if you have a spark in the ignition system.

1990 toyota camry 4afe engine


First I suggest a full tune up, including air and fuel filters. If you have already taken care of this, then you maybe overloading or flooding your engine with fuel. If the problem seems worse when you first start the car in the morning and gets slightly better as it warms up then you may have a bad coolant temperature sensor. This is about a $30 part. This sensor adjusts the amount of fuel pumped through your injectors to make up for cold temps much like choking an older vehicle. If it goes out, it sends the ECM a signal that the temp is negative 27 f and so it dumps all the fuel it can on the fire to compensate. A good indicator of this would be poor fuel milage, with this car you should be getting between 27 and 32 mpg. Most mechanics charge about 60 to 90 bucks to change this part.
