1992 Toyota Camry le 6 cyl.
recently replacedhose from air filter to fuel intake housing and now my car keeps losing fuel power every mile or so when i drive it. It acts like its flooding out and the check engine light comes on each time. I can pull over for a few minutes and let it cool off or reset and it will crack back up fine and engine light will go off but will soon flood out again. It will only go up to about 3500 rpm's while power is lost. It has a very strong fuel odor in the oil also. Any ideas?
Have you checked to make sure you hooked everything back up and correctly some of these hoses have a airflow sensor in them ? The best bet would be to go over all the hoses check for cracks in them.Have a scan ran on the ECM/PCM to see what codes come up some auto parts stores will run this scan for free.it will tell you if a part is going bad. Hope this helps and good luck

1. Error Code 24. Intake Air Temperature Sensor.
Solution: Check the following:
- IAT Connector and wiring.
- Intake Air Temperature Sensor.
- Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor.
- ECM. 2. Rough Idling when the engine is hot. The following are the reasons due to which the engine can perform bad when it is hot.
- Fuel pump control circuit.
- Fuel pump pressure.
- Fuel injectors.
- Non Return Valve clogged, located on the lower side of car chassis above the fuel tank.
- Engine compression, valve clearance, spark plugs.
The previous owner has screwed things up by changing the air intake and eliminating the air temp sensor. The car's computer depends on a series of sensors to determine what fuel mixture it should command, and now it can't do that properly.
When the car is cold, it knows from the coolant temp, and it sends plenty of fuel, but when hot it is getting the mixture wrong.
Restore the air intake to original, with the correct sensors, as it should run OK.
If not, then go looking for a vacuum leak or an air leak in the air intake hose and plenum somewhere.
See here p13. You unclip the air filter housing top, loosen the circlips around each end of the boot (or corrugated hose), pull off the smaller hoses which join it, and wiggle it loose at each end. It is easier if you move the air filter housing top aside.
should be a 14mm drain plug on the oil pan. you remove that until no more oil comes out. then put drain plug back in. it should be the only 14mm bolt on the bottom of the pan. then you will have a oil filter below the exhaust manifolds than needs to unscrew. replace with a new one. then fill your engine with 1 gallon or 4 quarts of oil.(same thing) thats all you should need.
i dont know but if you learngin how to work on cars thats a nice car to learn on. it pays off to repair your own car in the long run. you save so much money. :) GOOD LUCK!
hello i have a 1992 camry 4 cyl. i did a tune up on it(spark plugs & wires,air filter,fuel filter,dist. cap rotor) engine light is on now. It shuts off after 5 minutes of driving or idle. could it be a sensor? if so what type? thanks JC-
