Question about 1992 Toyota Camry V6

1 Answer

I recently replaced the tranny on my 92 Camry LE v6 which died at 203K original miles. After installation and while test driving I noticed that the reading had jumped to 212K miles. What caused this a

Related to this is the tachometer reading. Prior to the tranny replacement a head gasket job was done with all the belts, hoses, belts lines and whatever is accessible replaced.After the head gasket job the tachometer meter reading is really high e.g reads 4K @ 60mph while before this between 1 and 2.5K @ 70mph. Instrument cluster is all analog. Everything else is good - no check engine light, gauges ok etc. Trannny shifts seem normal from 1st all the way to 4th. The car has OD but not sure if OD is 4th or additional shift. Could it be the VSS?

I would say that is exactly what it is, can you run a diagnostic on it, this may clear any misleading sensor messages it has recieved/sent during the rebuilt etc

SOURCE: 2005 Toyota Corolla with 36,000 miles Transmission now "jumps" into gears

hi,
when the check engine light comes on, your car goes into a mode where instead of everything being normal, things are forced, to try and compensate for something else being wrong. It most likely does need a new timing belt, and a complete tuneup INCLUDING plugs and wires. we have a 1984 toyota corolla and it purrs like ground rice, I suggest the tuneup to continue proper rice production.

SOURCE: 1996 Corolla Auto Transmission problem

Hi. 2005 Corolla CE. It's normal. They tend to do this when upshifting form 1st to 2nd gear. No timing chain readjustment needed.

96 Corolla. Overdrive not working properly, if not engaging after 45mph constantly. If driving on the city, is normal, but not after 45mph, when the car is trying to engage overdrive in order to save gas and preserve the trans gears. If not able to get help at the dealership, find another one and explain them the situation.

SOURCE: 1994 Toyota Camry LE V6 Overheating, Steaming Engine--Blown Head Gasket??

It is best to be systematic about this. It could be either the water loss or the overheating which is the basic cause, either one could come first.

- there is a test for combustion gases in the water jacket, from a blown head gasket. This will very quickly cause overheating, and the excess pressure will blow the water out the overflow reservoir. If the car has already overheated and died, this is unfortunately quite likely

- the temperature sensor in the block may have failed. This will prevent the fans from running when the engine overheats, and you can see this. The fans are not driven by a belt. P68....

- the thermostat may have stuck closed. You will have to get it out and test it, but this is not difficult. See p328


http://www.turboninjas.com/camry/eg2.pdf


- this model of Camry has a plastic top tank to the radiator, which eventually cracks. Look there carefully.

- it may be that a radiator hose has gone soft and closed up. Check they are allowing good coolant flow.

- it could be that in a car this age that the radiator has silted up and is not allowing coolant through. Disconnect the top and bottom radiator hoses, when cool, and run water through from a garden hose to get some idea about that.

I have a 2002 toyota camry and the motor died so the put a new motor. the motor the put in my car is a V6 3000 Four Cam24. is this the same motor


The 2002 LE had a V6 option, and this should be the same motor you have had installed. Changing from a 4-cyl to a V6 is highly unlikely.

How often does a 2001 Camry LE V6 need an oil change?


ALL Vehicles have the same oil change requirement

You drive 20,000 miles a year div x 5 =every 4,000 miles

You drive 16,500 miles a year div x 4= every 4,125 miles

You drive 12,000 miles a year div x 3=every 4,000 miles

So every 10,13 or 17 weeks

3,4 or 5 times a year you change your oil
