you know the thing has run 400k miles, that is 300k past it designed life. break down and buy a new fan for it, it will set you back about 60 bucks. if you can replace the resistor, you can change the fan. a new set of plugs, plug wires, and a set of tires may be warranted as well.
a new engine is $25-35,000 dollars(if Toyota even has them) The rebuilt engines are very good. 3 yrs-unlimited miles on repairs/replace engine. Get a name brand engine like Jasper or Atk or BulletProof or Gopher. These ARE Toyota engines rebuilt(sometime better than original) The transmission has evidently been a great one(mine has 185,000 miles).<p>
You've done great on this car. But to replace engine and transmission; you looking labor and parts:$7-8,000. If you fix it, it will last forever, and you'll know it's good.<p>
Or you could buy a certified used Toyota, and buy an extended warranty.<p>
The only other thing is to buy new-$20-25,000 for a new Camary v/6 ( I don't know if they even make the wagon anymore)<p>
I hope this has helped. Good Luck with whatever you decide.
If you have never replaced the fuel filter with 220,000 miles I definitely think it is time to. You could try a good fuel system cleaner STP or similar, this may not help but it will not hurt. You may opt to check your fuel lines for debris and change if needed.
If I were you, I would consider a "transmission flush" be performed. Just replacing the fluid (drain the pan) will leave about 3 quarts of dirty oil in the trans system. There is no need to spend the money for a filter, the filters that Toyota uses are more like a fine mesh screen, and do not ever need replaced, like domestic cars. A complete transmission flush is exactly what you need.
