Always check the simple things first. For example it could easily be one of the HT spark plug leads not plugged into one of the socket(either plug side or other side)It could also be a damaged HT lead sparking to ground somewhere where it passes close the the engine. This type of fault is typically a clicking or tapping noise which is only heard clearly when the engine is idling and hence quieter. Get a tthree foot length of tube or hose pipe, put one end close to your ear and start searching for the exact spot where noise out on the engine. This is quite an accurate way to identify engine noise location.

First I suggest a full tune up, including air and fuel filters. If you have already taken care of this, then you maybe overloading or flooding your engine with fuel. If the problem seems worse when you first start the car in the morning and gets slightly better as it warms up then you may have a bad coolant temperature sensor. This is about a $30 part. This sensor adjusts the amount of fuel pumped through your injectors to make up for cold temps much like choking an older vehicle. If it goes out, it sends the ECM a signal that the temp is negative 27 f and so it dumps all the fuel it can on the fire to compensate. A good indicator of this would be poor fuel milage, with this car you should be getting between 27 and 32 mpg. Most mechanics charge about 60 to 90 bucks to change this part.

SOURCE: 1997 Toyota Camry won't start

The starter has two L-shape copper plates. These copper plates get used every time you start the car. After certain period of time the plates are so thin that no contact is made. So the car doesn't start. So your copper plates could be worn out. I had my replaced. And the problem is gone. If you know a good mechanic, you'll probably get fix for less than $100.

It's a common problem on Camry. They wear out prematurely.

1988 Toyota Camry LE clicking noise during acceleration


start with premium gas or injector cleaner, could be a low octane ping. this may be hard to diagnose with out hearing the noise so the other thing i would have you do is remove the belts and run the engine. sometimes when a bearing in an alternator, idler pulley, a/c compressor or belt tensioner goes bad they can make a clicking noise. try to listen if the noise is coming from the belt area, the transmission area or some other spot. spin all the pulleys with the engine off and wiggle them to see if any are bad

Clicking only while accelerating, 5-speed


Could be a noisy valve or lifter in the engine, or an exhaust leak.
Can you make the noise happen by revving up the engine with the car parked ?

I have a camry model 97, I hear sound like air like whule accelarating the engine


If the idle speed is higher than normal,say 1200 rpm instead of 900,there is a vacuum leak.Spray throttle body cleaner around the hoses and vacuum lines.The leak will induct the cleaner,which will then burn because it is fuel and raise the engine speed.

Does my 1998 Toyota Camry have a lifter problem there s a clicking noise when engine is acclerated? What can be done to fix this problem?


Might be a lot of thing, verify first at wich rpm the noise occures, in which situation. A clicking noise at idle and faster rpm could be the lifters, crank or even injectors (they tend to get noisy when they get dirty, saved one of my friend's tercel with a good presure injector cleaner). Try to duplicate de noise and see if it comes from the top of engine (cams, lifters) or the buttom (crank). If the noise ONLY happens on accelerations it might be a timing problem (pinking, it sound exactly like you were breaking glass). If so get the timing fixed ASAP, pinking can melt a hole in a piston in no time.
