Question about 1998 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

I have replaced the master cylinder on my 1997 camry 6 times.

What could be causing my master cylinder on my 1997 camry to go out? I have taken it to several shops to be worked on and everyone keeps going for the master cylinder. The dealer where I bought the car replaced it the first 2 times then local shops replaced it after that. It just hit 137,000 miles. The breaks just go out completely without warning. The master cylinder will have no fluid in it after sitting for a few days but i could not tell you where it is going since there are no drops on the car port.

    Has anyone pulled wheel & checked for leaks in brake areas? That fluid has to going somewhere, if not to wheel or lines, back to booster.

Since the fluid is alcohol based it evaporates, sounds like maybe the fluid reservoir is leaking and the master is ok, in most cases the plastic fluid reservoir is transferred from cylinder to cylinder.

Cost replace rear main seal toyota camry


Four cylinder or V-6.

Both engines will require the removal of the timing belt to service the front crank seal. Both engines will also require the removal of the transmission to replace the rear main seal

either way way you would be looking at 3-4 hours for the front seal and 5 to 6 hours for the rear seal.

1997 toyota camry how do you fix a p0340 camshaft sensor A_ bank 1 circuit malfunction


Well, a lot depends on what is causing the P0340 Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) to set.

The Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) is a pick-up coil mounted in the outer corner of the left cylinder head just below the valve cover (assuming your Camry is equipped with a V-6...you didn't say)
a one tooth signal plate is mounted to the outer camshaft. DTC P0340 sets when there is no signal recieved from the sensor by the Engine Control Module (ECM) either during engine cranking or engine running.
Possible causes are:
> Open or short circuit in CMP sensor circuit
> Faulty CMP sensor
> Defective starter
> Damaged cam signal plate
> Broken timing belt
> Internal ECM problem
Proper diagnosis required.

My daughter's 1997 Camry V-6 - Clutch pedal will go to the floor and sometimes won't come back. Checked fluid in clutch reservoir - OK. No fluid leaking. Had her press the clutch pedal and everything...


try bleeding the clutch slave cylinder its just like bleeding brakes just follow the line from the clutch master cylinder where you checked the fluid to the slave cylinder and pump the clutch three times and hold it to the floor while someone loosens the relief valve you repeat until no air comes out and it is all fluid then you check you fluid level again to make sure it is full then if the problem continues it might be time for a clutch replacement

Problems shifting, clutch feels fine.


Most likely the master cylinder. Both usually need replaced together. If one fails the other will most likely soon after. Then bleed system again.
