Most likely the problem is you have blowby. the oil is coming up past your worn piston oil rings which is causing oil everywheres. start your car and remove the oil dipstick and see if oil comes out. if not you need a engine rebuild or new used motor which would be cheaper in the long run.

If oil pressure is too high, check if the pressure relief valve is stuck or inoperable.Don't know where it's at on your toyota. Check with a garage or dealer for location. Other possibility is a clogged oil passage somewhere. For that, a good oil conditioner might help.

Suitable engine oil for camry 96


  • Hi, Lijo.

  • The manufacturer recommends 5W30 conventional. I like Castrol myself. for a 1996 Camry. Newer Camry's require a 5W20 synthetic but not yours. Looks like 4 quarts is the amount.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I have a 2004 Toyota Tacoma. During the last 2 months when I start the truck in the morning I hear a "tac, tac, tac, tac ...." noise for 30s to 1 min than it stops when I drive away. This...


This is most likely a noisy lifter (or valve tappet). In cold weather, the clearances in the valve train open up because metal contracts due to the cold. Once the oil pressure comes up after start the noise goes away because the larger clearance fills with oil and the lifter becomes "cushioned" with the oil. The proper fix is to have the valves adjusted. I believe in your model, that is done by putting shims on the lifters. This will quiet the noisy lifters. In the short term, you can try using a lighter weight oil for cold weather. This will get the oil to the lifters faster after start up and quiet the tapping more quickly. Once the weather warms again, shift back to the normal weight.

TURN THE KEY WILL NOT START JIGGLE THE KEY IN THE IGNITION SWITCH AND IT WILL START SOMETIMES 1991 CAMRY V6 WAGON , NO PROBLEM WITH BATTERY, WON'T START AT ALL


You need to have the ignition switch replaced. You can do it yourself, but you would need a manual to tell you how to take the steering column apart.

it sounds like your oil pressure sending unit may be plugged by whatever took your pressure down to 5-8 psi the first time. this is extremely low pressure as i am sure you know but at 30 psi your light should go off i would replace the sending unit if your oil pressure is holding 30

Hard starting in wet weather


Replace the ignition coil under the distributor cap. What you have is a hairline crack in it, and, when it is damp, the spark arcs out of the crack to ground, no spark. This is a VERY common problem with older Camrys. Take the coil off, and look at it real closely. You will see black marks on it, from the crack. I am very sure that this will eliminate your problem. Thanks for choosing FixYa!
