How do I program a 1998 Toyota Camry remote?

There are lots of confusing instruction on the net - a dealer is the best bet - ask the price BEFORE you let them do it. Some will do it for free and some dealers want $100 (especially if it is not a Toyota brand remote). Also, most Camry did not have remotes from the factory 1997 - 2001) - only the XLE models. If no factory remote, then no radio for the remote inside the car and it won't help.

2002 toyota engine, oil sludgecaused my car to stopped and now needs overhaul

Complain to Toyota, they are fixing some of these car for free. Here is the explanation and the list of problem vehicles.

Oil sludge or black sludge is a solid or gel in motor oil caused by the oil gelling or solidifying, usually at temperatures lower than 100 degrees Celsius. Sludge can be a major contributor to Internal combustion engine problems, and can require the engine to be replaced, if the damage is severe. Sludge is usually caused by the presence of water in the oil, and can accumulate with use. Ways to minimize sludge production and accumulation includes performing frequent oil changes, using synthetic oil, and following the manufacturer's engine maintenance routine.
The following engines were reported by the Center for Auto Safety and/or their manufacturers to have a problem with sludge accumulation:

  • 1996-2001 Toyota 3.0 L 1MZ V6
  • 1996-2001 Toyota 5SFE I4

    2001 Toyota Camry will not start after ignition change.

    The locksmith may not have tightened the "electrical" part onto the new ignition lock. The electrical part (the ignition "switch", if you will, is actually the thing that sends power to the starter, via the action of the key. If it is loose, you will get the exact problem that you are describing. Drop the lower dash panel on the driver side and examine it (the round white thing with several wires coming from it), hooked to the BACK of the ignition cylinder. Check it out & get back to me.
