SOURCE: Code P0401 1998 Toyota Camry

I'm assuming that it is a four cyl.The p0401 code is for insufficient egr flow.Most of the time it is the egr vsv valve (vsv means vacuum switching valve)which is what controls the vacuum to the egr valve to open it.It is kind of hard to get to as it is on the block under the head on the back side.If you follow the hose from the egr valve it goes to the vsv.I have also seen mice eat holes in the vacuum line which would also give you problems.I hope this help and let me know if you have anymore questions

Mass Air Flow sensor! Just remove your air filter cover. Go to Auto Zone and purchase some solvent. Spray past the air filter and it should correct the problem. If not, replace the Mass air-flow sensor. This is commonly mistaken for an oxygen sensor. Mine did this and I followed these steps and it fixed the light. BTW, the light stayed on for 5 years before I fixed it. Never hurt anything. It's normally something to do with emissions. Dummy lights. :)

Low power on toyota 2007 camry. Do I need to reset by reinstalling the new battery?

The fuse and relay box is located in the engine bay area. Please lift up the cover by pressing front and rear locks, and find the ECTS fuse (10 Amp). Location and diagram of the fuse is printed underside the cover. Remove the fuse, check the fusible link. Replace it with the same rating, if it is blown.
After replacing the fuse, remove the EFI fuse in the same relay box or remove the battery terminal for 10 Sec.
Fix the fuse back to its place or reconnect the battery terminal.
Start the car. It should now perform well.
If the problem persists, retrieve the error code and put it here.
Hope that works.

Fuel pump won't run unless engine is cranking, but won't start

Are you sure it's running when cranking? It should have come on when key turned on.
This is for camrys up to year '91. It may apply in your '95, also. Check the 7.5 amp ignition fuse and the 15 amp EFI fuse and the EFI main relay, all located in the fuse box next to your battery. There is also the circuit opening relay tied in to fuel pump operation. It is usually found under center of dash. It is usually not the problem, but it is part of the checks for fuel pump operation.
If your car has a " check connector" or "service connector" (also called a fuel pump check connector) under hood on driver's side near the firewall (a little 1 inch cube with a cap on it), then bridge terminals +B and Fp with a jumper wire. Turn key to on (don't start car). The pump should come on. Listen for fuel return noise from the fuel pressure regulator, and verify pressure in hose from the fuel filter. If nothing, check those fuses above. Here is how power runs to pump: Battery to 40 amp main fusible link-to 15 amp EFI fuse-to EFI main relay-to circuit opening relay-to fuel pump-to ground. Ignition switch and the computer (ECU) work the relays to pass power to pump. Hope this helps some, Randy. Good luck.

1994-4cyl.Camry(Cali)/auto/199,999 miles seems like an EFI problem. Engine will shut off while driving, feels like it's running out of fuel. Replaced EFI relay under the hood, ran for 2 weeks and now...

"Distributor issue"??? Thats very vague.
Go here,
and there should be an explaination on how to get the codes yourself. Or get the exact code or codes from Goodrich and come back here and let me know what it is.
Most auto parts stores will check for codes for free. They may or may not do pre OBD II cars. Worth a try.

2000 camry with $180,000 miles. usually after doing 60 mph and then getting on more local roads, when slowing or coming to a stop, RPM's nosedive and car stalls unless I can throw into nuetral fast...

it sounds like the egr valve is sticking open a little and causing a vac. leak. this is a common problem with this many miles on vehicle.try disconnecting vac line going to egr and test drive and see if it still has the same problem but it might set ck engine can clear the light by taking the battery loose or taking efi fuse out for about 30 seconds. i hope this will help you......good luck and let me know.........

Semi loud vibrating sound when car is idle, does this mean a tune up or timing belt problem? 1996 Camry

Not sure of the mileage requirement for a timing belt change, but the problem could be multiple things, many of which a tune up would find & repair:
Plugs & Plug wires
fuel filter
air filter
Any of the emissions systems

If fuel filter or air filter are due for replacement, can start there relatively cheap.

How many miles total on vehicle? How many miles since any major work or tuneup? Has timing belt ever been changed & if so, when?

Does sound go away totally when driving? Try driving along side a wall, where the sound can bounce back at you, with windows open, radio & A/C off, to see if you hear anything. Wondering about exhaust system leaks.

Need more information to determine more likely causes.

The husband is dumb

Likely you have broken a c/v joint. Joint & axle (as a unit) are available and not terribly expensive. Don't know why it would turn on ck engine light unless it was messing with the abs sensor during failure. If your husband was able to change engine etc. he won't have much problem changing axle (far easier job) Good luck...any problems during repair, post here...don't forget to rate my teriffic advise!!!

1993 Camry Check Engine Light

Therre is no DTC code "5". The DTCs start at 12. If the knock sensor (there are actually 2) was bad, you would have an acceleration issue. The knock sensor changes the timing of the spark to eliminate detonation, or "pinging". Do you have a "Ping" condition/valve rattle on acceleration?
To reset the light, open the hood, remove the 15 amp EFI fuse for 5 minutes. Replace it, and start the car and drive it until it reaches operating temperature. If the light comes back on instantly, you have a bad sensor or a bad wire.

Check engine light reset

You need to run the monitor. Which means you have to drive for at least 25 miles(or one day), before you go back to the smog station.
