    straight into the radiator is looking like the option cause we do not see a cap. All the other fluids have caps but to fill the antifreeze.

    Now we just have to find the radiator? there is no guide to show where anything is or how to do anything on my car with it! It has plastic hiding all the under neath things!

    Does the radiator have a cap on it. Not all vehicles have an overflow tank. That being said the fluid probably goes straight in to the radiator

You need to remove the plastic cowling piece on the passenger side of the engine compartment (it has the clip to hold the hood brace attached to it). If you pop up the little plastic clips that hold it down (carefully with a flat screwdriver) the plastic piece will lift out. The anti-freeze reservoir is underneath it with the fill port. The plastic piece covers the cap for the fill port and you can't see it until you take the cowling piece out.

Yeah that seems like the best course. If u are looking for a way to completely drain it, there should be a plastic plug on the bottom of the radiator, it should be accessable without removal of items, there could be a skid plate it the way, if this is the case you will have to remove this to do so. Make sure you have the correct fill spec, as i said before there is no overflow tank, overfilling could cause over pressurization and cause the cap to blow.

Your oil rings are probably stuck or gunged up, put castrol 10w 40 semi in it and see if it improves, if not you will need to change the piston rings

I have 90,000 miles on my 2003 Camry. What maintenance should I be doing?

Well normally with toyota you change your belts about every 90,000 and spark plugs every 100,000 and if you havent changed your antifreeze then you will, they say toyota red antifreeze is suppose to last 5 years but i would change it every 3 because it breaks down just like regular oil does. and i would get done the tranmission fluid normally you change that every 40,000 since its just like oil.
