SOURCE: no spark in 93 toyota camry 4cyl

Hi leo_meadows,

First thing to do is to check the easy things.... Open the fuse cover and make sure that the fuse for the EFI system is ok...Check that the main EFI relay is secure and fitted correctly.

Once you've done that, then check the connections to the distributer are all secure...Next make sure the plugs have spark, by pulling out one of the plug leads and with a screw driver inserted into the business end and making sure you don't touch the metal part of the tool, hold it about five mm above the engine block....Make sure that the car is out of gear with the park brake on....Get someone to turn the starter and see if theres a spark.

If there's still no spark you can replace the distributer or you can replace the igniter, which you'll find inside the same unit....Let us know how you get on and we can give you more help if you need it...

Regards Johngee10

SOURCE: My 1996 Toyota Camry has an oil pump leak

Keep an eye on the oil level get this repaired as soon as you can and remember that the oil of a car does two things not only does it lubricate but it also takes internal heat away from the parts that are being lubricated. Friction cause heat heat causes bearing fatigue so make sure you get this repaired as soon as possible and keep an eye on that level. Don't over fill that is just as bad as not having enough oil in it.

SOURCE: oil leak problem with 1996 toyota camry

I am going to see a mechanic - my trusted mechanic who does not nickel and dime me - to see what this is. I have the same problem and he told me he has never done this job on a Camry and is unsure. Given the miles, he has suggested that maybe it is time to part ways with the car. I am going to ask him if he will put some florescent dye in it and let me drive it for 50-100 mi and then check to see where the leak is and fix it. Let you know what happens. I have to try, the car is solid.

My toyota camry will not pick speed especially when it climbing a hill

this could be caused by an ignition problem, wrong parts, or a timing problem.
try using ngk or denso(ngk recommended) spark plugs, ngk spark plug wires, and if needed new coils. ngk and denso are the factory recommended parts for the model, i have a 98 camry lewith a 2.2.
also if it is low mileage, below 200k or doesnt leak oil, try castrol syntec 5w 30 oil and a k&n air filter

I have a 92 camry 4cyl. Won't fire at the sparkplug. Replaced plug wires and plugs, distributor, igniter and still won't fire. Any suggestions?

Take out a spark plug, lay the plug (with the spark plug wire attached)on the engine and turn the motor over, if it sparks, your getting fire, Try each plug, works best a night so you can see the spark.

Oil getting into the cylinder where sparks plugs go on my 1996 toyota camry. pull plugs out and oil all over the several of the plugs what can i do?

You might have a valve cover gasket leaking down onto the plugs. (If this is what you are describing?)
If it's getting on the part of the plug that goes into the engine, you might have worn rings, and compression test will test that.
Also, look into the crankcase vent system to see it it's plugged.
And look to see if you have oil in your air filter chamber, this is a sign of wearing out.

Has a smell of burnig oil after driving for just a short time, heads, timing belt and spark plugs are all new... can you help me????

Do you have any evidence of oil leaks?

These engines are notorious for leaking oil, both the V6 and the 4 cylinder.

On the V6 the rear valve cover gasket and cam seals are both regular leaks, and typically last about 60k miles each before leaking again.

On 4 cylinders the distributor o-ring or distributor plug for DIS models is a heavy leaker as well.

I understand you have a lot of new parts, but some of these things are known to fail on installation when done by someone not extensively familiar with the product. If you need further assistance, please ask and I will do by best to assist you.

Thanks for using Fixya

94 Toyota Camry has rough idle.

check for a small vacuum leak speciallythe lines going to the throtle have someone look at it while you seat onthe car , idle ,FOOT ON THE BRAKE ! a way to test for leaks if to spray a lil wd40 around the lines an listen if the idle gets better or worst, sometimes the reason the engine runs to rough or lean are vacumm lines that are slightly broken.
