Check oil level and check coolant level at the radiator. check coolant temperature is not excessive. (boiling) If ok the have the fault codes read to find failed sensor/ servo. When fixed use the code reader to reset the CPU to clear the light.

    After cleaning the radiator and put coolant, the 'Check Engine' light has dissappeared. May be I need to go a long journey and see whether the light will come back.

SOURCE: My 1990 Camry jerks and sometimes stalls

The 1st thing to do is have a trouble code retrieval test run to see what is making the check engine light come, this is the source of the problem.

SOURCE: OBD code 0401 (1997 Toyota Camry 4 cyl)

There is a VSV (vacuum switching valve) , usually mounted on the back side of engine block, under the intake manifold, as well as the map sensor, that can also cause that code if one or the other is faulty. It takes some pretty detailed troubleshooting to confirm this in some cases, so if that's not in your line of work, you may have to have it properly diagnosed, or take a 50/50 shot at which one first.

SOURCE: toyota camry 1997 3.0 v-6 code p0446

That code is for the evaporative emmisions system. Here is a link to an open forum you can go to, this will help you understand what it is, and why. The vehicle on the site is a van, but the code, and parts involved are one in the same, so don't worry about the difference in vehicle. The van is a toyota, and this is the information on the p0446 code. Hope this helps you.

My 1997 Toyota Camry Check engine light is comming in day time and when check engine light is on problem in auto gare shifting but in morning its ok and i chick gair sencer also but nothing happen


Your car stores computer fault codes in the engine/trans modules. They set the CHECK ENGINE light on to alert you a fault is now stored and there is a problem that requires diagnosis. You need to get the fault code scanned to proceed further. There are over 1300 DIFFERENT reasons to turn on the check engine light, some could be minor (a loose gascap), some major (CRANK SENSOR/CAM SENSOR CORRELATION...Car will stall when one finally fails!)
Checking the exact code is the only way to proceed.

1997 4Runner oil quantity


For a V6 # Liter engine, you will use a galon and almost half (that is about 6 Liters of oil). I use a Toyota camry V6 3 Liter engine that shares the same engine with the Toyota 4Runner.
