Question about 1992 Toyota Camry V6

2 Answers

No Power,Fuel Smell ,White and Blue Smoke coming from exhaust.

I have a 1992 Toyota Camry XLE V6 Sedan.The problem is that when you start the car it kinda sounds and smells like it has an exhaust leak when you are idling.The right behind that it begins to start blowing white and blue smoke out of the exhaust.To me when it starts doing that it gives a smell like raw gas.When you start pulling off and going down the road it seems like it is missing and running really rough.Also while it is doing all of that it is also struggling very hard to pull itself up the road.Much less trying to go up a hill.I have tried everything that everyone has or could think to do to fix this and it is just not fixing the problem.Please help me figure out what is wrong with this Toyota.

It sounds like you have a blown head gasket, or maybe both head gaskets....it has all the symptoms of such.....

1992 toyota camry v6 backfires and has white smoke


It seems you may have a head gasket leak from the coolant jacket to one cylinder or more.
To confirm this you should get a radiator leak-down test, to see if the coolant jacket does have a leak, and a compression test to see if one or more cylinders have a leak.
The white smoke is coolant vapour, and the backfiring, fuel igniting only once it gets to the hot exhaust from other cylinders.

I have a 1992 camry v6, its blowing white smoke when I drive it and it seems to lose power. Could it be the turbo charger?


Actually is sounds more like a blown head gasket or intake gasket. The white smoke is probably water.. and my guess is your coolant reservoir tank is dry or soon will be.. and the next thing will be overheating. The water is getting into the combustion cycle and turning to steam as it blows out the exhaust. Hence white "smoke"..

The loss of compression due to the gasket leak on one or more cylinders would account for the loss of power as well.

I was not aware this model came with turbocharger.. unless an aftermarket one was added.

A good shop will do a compression check and identify if it's the head or intake gasket.

Best of luck!

Why does my car smoke


you have to determine what type of smoke it is, a white smoke is a coolant in exhaust sweet smell problem, a blue smoke is fuel and smells like it and burns eyes, a black smoke is oil, bad rings,valve seals. Stop treating it like a drag car !! HA,HA

Is it coming from the driver side, passenger side, front or rear of the engine? It could be a cam or crank seal if it is coming from the passenger side behind the plastic timing cover.
