Question about 1995 Toyota Camry
I want to replace the motor with a junk yard one, for a 1995 camry wgn. What causes sludging in engines, and do I have to watch out for motor years? My camry has 348,000 miles, I want to rebuild a junk yard in my spare time, then swap out the motors, and rebuild the other one. I just dont follow if any of the 4 cyl. have serial numbers, or production dates that I should watch out for.
Go on ebay and search for your exact replacement motor by a company in North Hollywood, Ca. Japanese direct Motors. I bought one for my mom's camry and all I had to do was swap over the oil pump configuration and while i had it out i change the timing belt and all the accessary belts. The car runs like a new one now and the engine cost me $400 + 200 to ship directly to my shop labor was about 20 hours 120 in parts for a total $1900. Parts and labor. If i would have cut the labor by doing the work myself. It would have been a savings about $1200.00. I don't know if this is what you wanted in a suggestion but, if you are like me I like to get things done as quickly as possible for a reasonable price. These engines come with a one year warranty becuase they are teated for quality before they are sold and i kind of like the idea of not having to break in the rings and bearings. Also if something goes wrong with what i put together i have to eat the cost of my mistakes. If these engines fail the company will replace it provided you did everything right.
