Hi
sounds like the thermostat is jammed open, get it looked at as the head gasket could blow and destory the engine, worst case anyhow. sounds like its on its way out so can be unpredictable, they are very cheap though so should be a big job
Regards
Dan

This is caused by a defective engine coolant temperature control thermostat.

1998 Toyota Camry V6 Auto transmission loses power


Check the EFI main relay base in the relay block forward on the left fender well. On Camrys sometimes the base for this relay becomes faulty and gives intermittent connection. See here p279

Where is the power steering temperature sensor on 1993 Toyota Camry v6


On some Camrys the radiator fan is run by hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump. I think the sensor you mention is the engine coolant temperature sensor, which is in the circuit which operates the fan when the engine becomes hot. If this fails the engine will overheat, yes. The fan does not cool the hydraulic fluid from the pump.

If your power steering fluid gets low the same thing can happen, but you would notice immediately as the steering would become intermittently harder.

1998 toyota camry started jerking a bit and now


If your losing compression then I suggest doing a compression test and then following it up with a wet compression test to determine whether the problem is in the valves or pistons.
Wow one tune up in 122k miles jerking not really an ignition thing more like a fuel thing. If Compression test results are good then do a full tune up even replace coil packs or distributor ( which ever is applicable) and replace fuel filter.
These vehicles are not known for major engine problems (blown engines bad valves etc).
Big with transmission problems if its a 6 cylinder not the 4 cylinders.

Idles rough, misfires regularly, epecialy in cold temperatures, but also at highway speeds. Noticeable lack of power

Please go and change the spark plug WIRES. They crack on the inside tube , arching and causing the car to run like **** when hot.
Trust me, no fuel pump or filter and no sensors!!
