Question about 1992 Toyota Camry V6

1 Answer

1992 Camry 4 Cyl - 1 plug very oily and fouled out

I've had this car for 1 year and it ran perfect until I loaned it to my son for 3 weeks. He ran it very very low on gas (probably more than once).

Now it seems to be running on 3 cyl. Stutters and stumbles badly.
Changed the plugs and fuel filter and it ran good for about 5 minutes, then started running bad again.
1 plug is very oily. The other 3 plugs look fine.

Could a clogged injector be the reason for this?
If so, can they be taken out and cleaned ?
Any special tools needed?

What else could cause this problem?

Thanks

    Thanks for the reply toyotek . It seems the plug in question is oily both on the outside AND the electrode.



    Thanks Kdawwgg0609. Do injectors have to be replaced? Can injectors not be taken out and cleaned?

    is the plug oily on the outside or are the electrodes oily?

With the car being as old as it is. it is very possible fhat the injector is plugged. the only way to find this out is to place it. then if you still have the same problem with the plug getting oily. theres a good chance the rings in that cylinder are going out and letting to much oil through fouling out the plug

I have a 1997 Toyota Camry 4-Cyl. I need the plug wire firing order on the engine and the cap. I think I may have crossed my new plug wires.


Here you go free of charge curtorsey About.com I do not have a photo of the distributor cap. Just turn the engine over until the #1 piston is at TDC on the compression stroke and the rotor will be pointing at the #1 piston. Connect that to the #1 plug and then connect the next on to the # 3 plug going counterclockwise, then 4 and finally 2. 53f57a7.png

Help Me With 92 Toyota Camry LE 4 cyl...


should be a 14mm drain plug on the oil pan. you remove that until no more oil comes out. then put drain plug back in. it should be the only 14mm bolt on the bottom of the pan. then you will have a oil filter below the exhaust manifolds than needs to unscrew. replace with a new one. then fill your engine with 1 gallon or 4 quarts of oil.(same thing) thats all you should need.

i dont know but if you learngin how to work on cars thats a nice car to learn on. it pays off to repair your own car in the long run. you save so much money. :) GOOD LUCK!

good luck,
Michael

Hi Mike
Try lightly tapping the starter with a spanner and at the same time turning the key to start, if it starts you need the starter overhauled.
