This particular vehicle is very dependable and reliable. You will get normal maintenence issues brakes/belts etc. However, in my experience, I cannot think of any major issues this model has been troubled with. It would be a good idea to have a pro dp a pre purchase inspection to determine if there are any signs of collission or abnormal engine noises etc. before you by.

1990 Toyota Camry severe oil leak I can't tell where it is coming from ? What type oil and filter do I use ? The car died on me and wouldn't start had a lil bit of blk smoke coming out how do I fix it? And...

This car has issues. Where in the country do you live? What's the vehicle mileage? Most likely you'd use 5w30 but this can change based on climate and mileage.
As for the exhaust problem, need to know where it's split. These cars will go through exhaust systems, and a car of this vintage may need a catalytic converter/ front pipe converter or worse yet a pre-cat which these older cars had. Black smoke could indicate partially clogged cats or other fuel issues.
Time to get the car in for service or look for a new vehicle. The necessary repairs may not be warranted unless the car is in pristine low mileage condition.

My 97 Camry speedometer goes off (to zero) as well as the odometer ONLY when the inside of the vehicle gets hot. In cool mornings it works fine but in hot afternoons,the LED goes off. Replaced the speed...

This may be hard to believe, but it is the circuitry in the instrument cluster. I have (2) 1997 Camry's and one of them had this problem. I swapped instrument clusters with the other camry, then the other camry had the problem.

Buy a used instrument cluster from a junkyard with a 30 day warranty and you should be good to go (though your mileage will be incorrect).

I am thinking of buying a 1996 k1500 pickup. it has 192000 miles,automatic trans and is 4wd. I think its a v6.Is there any common problems i shoud look out for?

It's a 4.3 litre V6 engined PU.

These vehicles are not reliable at this age and mileage (nor were they when near new) so you will be buying yourself a repair bill unless a heap of items on the vehicle have been renewed.

At 192000 miles the vehicle is passed it's useful life.

There are numerous problems from bad axle seals to engine and transmission issues, brake problems, various electrical problems, fuel pump failures etc etc. You need to check everything especially the auto which will fail and is not cheap to replace.

High mileage vehicles are rarely a decent buy and are cheap to purchase for a reason.

How many miles until routine parts need replacing.

The owners manual will have factory recommended service intervals based on mileage. I would sugest a new timing belt and waterpump, based on mileage. A local Toyota dealer call tell you what services are required at this mileage. Most other parts just work until they break. Do the maintenance it is much cheaper in the long run.
