If an auto trans, it uses ATF, say Dexron II.

If a manual it uses 75W-90 gear oil (AN GL-3 minimum), say Mobilube XHP 75W-90.

I have a 1990 4 cylinder Camry. The head is from a 1995 Camry. Do I use spark plugs for a 1990 or for a 1995 on this vehicle?

I'll be interested to see what the other Toyota mavens here think. I'd say the 1990 plug, I'd try a set of NGK BKR5ES-11. They are the cheaper type, not platinum.

I changed my Prado 2007 rear Differential LSD type, we have put Mobil 1 LS, 75W-90 diff oil. I used for 4 days and noticed some jerking when doing turns. Immediate drained and put Whiz synteq mt1 80W90...

II think I would try some Motorcraft XL-3 Friction Modifier. That is what Ford uses to fix the same problem in their Limited Slip differentials. You can find it online or at any parts house that carries Motorcraft.

Hi im trying to find where i put transmission oil in my 1990 toyota camry with an inline four

If you are talking about an Automatic Transmission, you pull out the Transmission dip stick and add the transmission fluid though that hole. The capacity for the 1990 Camry is 2.6 Quarts. THEN you have the differential section of the transmissioin. That takes 1.7 Quarts. The differential section has a plug at the bottom of the transmission to drain it and another plug on the side of the transaxle case to fill it. You fill it until it overflows out of the side hole. That is 1.7 Quarts. Both parts of the transmission take Dexron II transmission fluid. It is not the same as Dexron IV and is not backwards compatible. I use Royal Purple Max ATF for both parts of this transmission.

1990 Toyota Camry transmission won't go into any gear

you didn't make clear you have a automatic trasmission or manual?
if is a manual trasmission you have to look the clutch and to valves that is puting the trasmision oil pressure to move the clutch one at the end near the gear box and the second after the clutch pedal outside of the cabin imediatley after the pedal. you have to look to the oil level in the rezervoir, if you dont have the problem to bay some oil and to change completely the oil first maybe the right solution to begin with oil change first , may be is freeze from the dirties finded in the oil pipes and valves.
if you have the automatic trasmission sorry i dont know, because the problems there are more complex.
