Question about 1989 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

1989 Camry surges and looses power at highway speeds.

After adding an injector cleaner and filling up with gas at a Walmart gas station my 2 liter 4 cylinder 1989 toyota camry began surging and loosing power.  When I gave it gas it slowly regained power and was okay.  It continued to do this intermittently until I changed the fuel filter and then was okay.
Several months later I again bought gas at Walmart and the symptoms resumed.
Could this be a fuel pump problem or maybe water in the gasoline?

check the spark plug wires are attached all the way till it snaps, pull each spark plugs, any black deposits on any plug means it isn't firing(faulty plug,or wire) last of all take off each injector wire and notice if there is a change in idle speed (plugged injector)

I had a similar problem in a 1994 Taurus, and after spending nearly 300$ on ignition parts, it turns out the problem was a bad spark plug wire that cost me 8.88$ to replace.

I start my suv and it dies. If I start it a second time it will continue running and I can drive it. I have changed gas stations and added a fuel injector cleaner, but nothing works. It has 72563 mi


It seems that there is a delay in fuel delivery to the engine. Check the fuel filter, the most common problem for fuel delivery. Hope this helps . Moe

Car won't start without adding gas to air intake then won't idle


Check the fuel filter, you may have clogged it when you filled the tank.

My car stalled and it will turn over but will run rough for a minute and then die. Does not seem to be getting enough gas to keep running. I have a half a tank of gas. It is a 1995 Toyota Camry 4 cyl...


there are many reasons for this...it could be a stopped up fuel filter, to dirty injectors. I would change the fuel filter, then fill the tank, and add fuel injector cleaner, The gas we get these days is not what it used to be....try changing where you get your gas....hope this helps, and please rate me...thank you

How to improve the fuel efficiency?


my 2 cents -

1. You didn't specify your exact model, on this site you'll fond your answer - http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/bymodel/1989_Toyota_Camry.shtml

2. There are a few ways to do this, here's one -
- Fill your gas tank to the very top.
- Write down your odometer or reset you trip meter.
- Drive your car till it's time to fill it up again.
- When it's time to fill you tank, fill it to the very top (preferd in the same station, in the same pump).
- divide the number of miles (or kilometers) you drive, by the amount of gas you filled, This is of course only true for this gas tank, fuel consumption is effected by many things, load, driver, type of miles you do (city or hoghway), etc..

3. Service your car regularly, make sure tire pressure is correct, don't drive like you are racing.

Good luck,
Eitan.
