It all depends on how it is maintained. It is a reliable car with a reliable engine. The engine will outlast the car. However, if the previous owner didn't take care of it, it will eventually let you down. A good friend of mine owns an 06 Corolla which he bought used last fall.. It has not been perfect but he also doesn't care about his cars. (His previous car went at least 75,000 miles without so much as an oil change.)

I think you're in the clear!

I'm considering buying a 1987 Toyota supra turbo. 81k miles. What major or minor issues can I expect or need to ask owner about ?


If you ask the owner for the faults he has had expect an out right lie as to nothing is wrong with the vehicle. With such low mileage better to ask why he is selling it. I suggest that the seller produces proof that he actually owns the car and is capable of selling it legally. Next take it for a good run ( not around the block) and be critical in listing all noises and problems you find. Next take it to a reputable mechanic for a frank appraisal of the faults and see what he comes up with. Any must do repairs should be deducted from the asking price as you will be stuck with that cost.. Considering the age and the listed mileage I am suspicious that the mileage has been tampered with as most cars average 15 to 25 k per year Be very cautious also because the parts supply for an 87 car has dried up and you will most likely only get second hand parts ( Panels)

Dead alternator


are you buying new or remanufater ,how long do they last ,are they covered under warranty ? im sure there are some brands that advertise longer life or have a longer warrenty but with 410,000 miles i dont think your car will last that much longer without something major going out gota think about price vs life expectance you might find a 5year warrenty at 300$ but your car tanks in 1 for example

New engine for '92 Camry wagon?


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.

What is the oil sensor and what does it look like?


DO YOU MEAN THE OIL LIFE MONITOR SYSTEM WHICH IS IN MOST NEWER CARS? IF SO THE EASY EXPLANATION IS IT IN THE ENGINE COMPUTER. IT DOES A CALCULATION OF THE ENGINE TEMP AND RPM TO DETERMINE THE ENGINE OIL LIFE EXPECTANCY. IT IS NOT ADVISABLE TO USE THE SYSTEM TO DO OIL CHANGES BY AS IT CAN BE DECEIVING. THE LITTLE OLD LADY GOING TO CHURCH AND THE STORE WILL HAVE A GREATER OIL LIFE EXPECTANCY THAN SAY JUNIOR WHO GOES AS FAST AS HE CAN TO THE NEXT STOP LIGHT.

DON'T GO OVER 5000K MILES IS THE BEST THING TO DO. OR GO BY GRANDPAS RULE OF 3000K MILES.

Buying 2001 RX300 65,000 miles extra clean


If you aren't mechanical, have someone who is check the car out. Specifically, the transmission fluid for color and smell (On toyota's they are to be changed every 30K miles, few drivers do this), and pull the spark plugs to see if they all appear relatively clean (a burnt looking plug indicates an engine problem). Ask to see the maintenance records. Oil should be changed every 3-4,000 miles if regular oil, 8-10,000 if synthetic.

The next BIG thing regarding maintenance is timing belt and water pump at 90,000 miles. Expect 500-700 for this, not at the lexus dealer. Probably double at the lexus dealer.

I would be interested under 12,000. Very interested under 10,000.

FYI, I'm driving a 95 ES300 with 170,000 miles and it runs like a top. These cars require very little in the way of repair if they are maintained. My goal is 300,000 just to see if it can be done. Unfortunately, I drive a total of 1,000 miles a month these days. So it will be a while. On the interior, you can have very nice new leather seats installed if the rest of the interior is in reasonable shape. Cost around $1,000 or a little less.

Good luck!!

2000 Toyota Camry LE - engined blown - should I fix?


Hi...
On your coment.
I'm a mechanic...
To decide for a USED engine Or REBUILT engine.
The Difference 1- is the Price
On used How many miles have the USED engine
How was the maintenance on the Engine. ( Never know)
The warranty Used only 30 days.
But is the Cheap option. depend of your money.

JASPER is ONE of the BETTER ENGINE and TRANS. Rebuilder company.
They have 2 warrantys, One 36,000 miles,
The other ONE is 72,000, wrote on papers.
They give to you A complete warranty.
If the ENGINE fail During the Warranty time. they will give to you an other engine, and pay for the Labor to Remove and Install the Second Engine.
If you do with JASPER ASK to the Installer for the Warranty papers if he buyit.


OK. O hope this help on your question.
Thank you for use fixya ...
