Question about 1996 Toyota Camry
Our Old Reliable 92 Camry wagon blew a gasket at 200,000 miles. We are considering putting in a new engine, but can only find refurbished ones. Are there new ones out there? Also, the transmission has not given us any problems. Anyone know the expected life of this transmission. Not sure if we should put money into our Old Friend.We don't mind the little things breaking - easy to fix. But we love the spaciousness and zip of this great family car.
A new engine is $25-35,000 dollars(if Toyota even has them) The rebuilt engines are very good. 3 yrs-unlimited miles on repairs/replace engine. Get a name brand engine like Jasper or Atk or BulletProof or Gopher. These ARE Toyota engines rebuilt(sometime better than original) The transmission has evidently been a great one(mine has 185,000 miles).<p>
You've done great on this car. But to replace engine and transmission; you looking labor and parts:$7-8,000. If you fix it, it will last forever, and you'll know it's good.<p>
Or you could buy a certified used Toyota, and buy an extended warranty.<p>
The only other thing is to buy new-$20-25,000 for a new Camary v/6 ( I don't know if they even make the wagon anymore)<p>
I hope this has helped. Good Luck with whatever you decide.
