Question about 1998 Toyota Camry
Hi, it sounds like the head gasket has gone take out the spark plugs and check for signs of water also check the oil for signs of water as this to me looks and sounds like the head gasket has failed and will need replacing.
If water is not present then try starting the car with the coolant filler cap off and see if it starts if it does then this is head gasket failure if it still dont start then your going to need to get a compression test done and then this will tell you if the gasket is good or bad but to me it sounds like head gasket failure.
If the gasket needs replacing then you need to also check the water pump is working and also test the thermostat as any of these failing can cause the head gasket to blow again so make sure you get these checked ok.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
