I need a vaccum hose diagram for a 1996 toyota camry


There are two engines that can be in this model - a four cylinder and a six-cylinder. The four cylinder further breaks down to an auto transmission and manual transmission. I have attached all three diagrams below. The first is the 4 cyl Auto trans, then the 4 cyl Man trans, then the 6 cyl.

How do i take the valve cover off of a 88 toyota camry


  • Remove the spark plug wires (write down and mark where each go).
  • Grab a 30mm socket and remove them big nuts on top of the valve cover.
  • Now the valve cover will pull up.
  • I recommend replacing the spark plug tubes and the valve cover gasket at the same time. The two are sold as a kit if you so choose to buy one.

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

How can I tell if the ignition switch is bad in my toyota camry?


You need a tachometer compatible with the Toyota Camry's ignition system. Start up the Camry's engine and let it reach normal operating temperature. Connect the tachometer tester probe to terminal IG of the Data Link Connector 1. Connect terminals TE1 and E1 of the DLC1 with a jumper connector. Inspect the tachometer's timing. It should be between 8 and 12 degrees Before Top Dead Center. Set the timing as necessary. Tighten the hold-down bolt and make sure the ignition timing advances. Ignition Coils Disconnect the negative terminal from the Camry's battery. Remove the two nuts and clips on top of the cylinder head cover, then remove the cover. Disconnect the four ignition coil connectors and the bolts retaining the coils. You can now remove the coils. Replace the coils as needed. Connect the bolts and coil connections and replace the cylinder head cover.

I need to replace spark plugs and wires on my santa fe v-6. Do i need to remove the intake manifold?


There may be an engine cover over the valve covers that is a big piece of plastic that may say Hyundai, or Santa Fe,

I believe its three or four 10mm retaining nuts that hold it on, take that engine cover off, and there should be 3 wires in the top of each valve cover, those big wires are the spark plug wires, and they actually connect to the spark plug which is down inside the cylinder.
To remove, you will need a 3/8 drive ratchet, a long extension, I would say 6-12 inches, long enough, but not too long, and a 5/8" spark plug socket.
Take one of the spark plug wires out, and put your long extension with the spark plug socket on it down into the hole that the big wire came out of and you should find a spark plug at the end of the tunnel.

Removing valve cover toyota camry


You need to pull the plug wires up and out of their tubes. They can get stuck so twist them left and right to help loosen them first. The plugs are in the tubes. Use a 5/8 plug socket to remove them. Around the tubes you will see large flat nuts. You will need to remove all 4 of these. Also on the top timing belt cover there are 2 10mm head bolts you will need to back out at least 1/2 way for 2 reasons. 1 to free up the wire harness that crosses there and the bolts extend over the valve cover blocking its removal. Then with a screwdriver pry up the metal washers and rubber seals that were under the large flat nuts. The pcv valve needs to be pried out of the valve cover in the center and then the cover will come off.
Reverse to install.
