I would say it is the the thermostat. it makes the engine heat up to i am pretty sure 195 degrees at a fairly quick rate then opens to cool the engine once to running temperature and opens and closes as needed to keep temperature at the manufactures setting. some get stuck open so they never truly heat up.

SOURCE: 1993 Toyota Camry V6 Timing Settings

Get a T belt from toyota. It has 3 white lines on it and and arrow mark. 2 lines are solid and one is broken. Put the arrow facing away from the engine. The cam gears have a dot punched into them near a certain tooth. This is where the solid white lines will line up with. The crank gear will have a dot also. It will line up at 90 degrees from the top, towards the front of the car. This is where the broken line will match up with. With the belt installed with all lines on their proper dots and arrow away from the engine, you valve timming is correct.
Of course you need to remove and compress the tensioner also. I assume you know this already since you didn't ask.

Show how to replace power outlet fuse for 2006 Toyota Camry


Interior Fuse Box Location 2002 2006 Toyota Camry 2006 Toyota Camry LE 2...

The video above shows how to replace blown fuses in the interior fuse box of your 2006 Toyota Camry in addition to the fuse panel diagram location. Electrical components such as your map light, radio, heated seats, high beams, power windows all have fuses and if they suddenly stop working, chances are you have a fuse that has blown out. If your Camry is experiencing electrical problems, you should always check the fuses first, because they are relatively easy to check and cheap to change. Some Toyotas have multiple interior fuse boxes including in the trunk - the video above will show you where the interior fuse box of your 2006 Camry is located. If your Camry has many options like a sunroof, navigation, heated seats, etc, the more fuses it has. Some components may have multiple fuses, so make sure you check all of the fuses that are linked to the component in question.
If you need to replace a blown fuse in your Camry, make sure you replace it with one that has the same amperage as the blown fuse. If checking and replacing the fuse for the component in question doesn't work, we recommend seeking assistance from a trusted professional mechanic. They should be able to figure out if the component needs to be replaced or if there is a short or some other problem with your Camry.

Good Luck

93' toyota camry takes to long to warm up in the


Sounds like a dead spark plug or faulty wire, or even out of time. Start with changing plugs. No change, do the wires. No change check the timing belt. It may have jumped a cog. As for the slow to warm up part, the misfire won't help that problem, but you may need to change the thermostat if it doesn't improve once you get it running on all cylinders.

Heat does not work


Problem is in your venting..... more than likely the heating dial is not sending the signal to open the vent to allow the heat into your car.
Or if you are experiencing winter conditions, I would bet that you have a summer thermostat in your car and it is not allowing the engine to warm up properly to heat your car. You need a winter thermostat in your vehicle to get the heat out in the colder weather.

2002 toyota camry LE V6: A/C compressor not switching on. Light Button turns on in the cab. 10A fuse is good. Year ago I had a leak in the A/C (thats what toyota said). They temporarily turned off the...


MOST COMMON REASON FOR AN A/C COMPRESSOR NOT COMING ON IS BECAUSE THERE IS MOST LIKELY NO FREON IN THE SYTEM. ANOTHER REASON IS A BAD COMPRESSOR CLUTCH COIL, BUT TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION WHAT YOU WROTE, THE FIRST IS THE BEST REASON WHY YOUR A/C IS INOP, ESPECIALLY SINCE IT WAS WORKING BEFORE THE WINTER AND THEN IT DIDN'T WORK AFTER. WHEN TOYOTA HAD IT FIXED THE FIRST TIME THEY SHOULD HAVE PUT ULTRA VIOLET DYE IN THE SYSTEM TO DETECT FOR LEAKS, WITH THIS IN MIND I WOULD TAKE IT BACK TO ANY REPAIR SHOP, ONE THAT YOU TRUST, THAT DEALS WITH A/C AND HAVE IT CHECKED. THE SYSTEM WILL MOST LIKELY HAVE TO BE RECHARGED WITH FREON AND HAVE MORE DYE INJECTED INTO IT TO FIND WHERE THE LEAK IS.
HOPE THIS HELPS

How much warm up time does a dodge sprinter 2500 diesiel require in the winter time?


At idle it can take hours to fully warm up

If your concerned about driving it right away after starting, not a big issue.....start, let it warm a min or two then drive.

Diesels warm slower than gas engines, and they take longer to get warm enough to give you heat untill fully warmed up.

Normally you should see good temp and good heat after driving about 15 minutes after the first cold start of the day.

Heater is not works perfectly and missing idle speed


Too long to warm up: Replace the thermostat.

Misfire when warm: Replace plugs and wires.

This should help your issue out greatly.

A FixYa rating would really be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
