Question about 1989 Toyota Camry
based on your description, a number of problems.
High beams - check for any loose connection in the headlight switch or it could be the switch itself. Additionally, you may want to check the fuse, fuse holder, and relay in the main fuse/relay box near the battery. They have been known to cook themselves over time. Often, the contacts/connectors/pins/terminals could be cleaned and scraped to ensure positive contact.
High idle - depends on your engine and whether it is carburetor or fuel injected. Often there would be a throttle/idle adjustment screw that can be turned to increase/decrease the idle. In some instances, an idle compensator (when air con is active) could cause this also and may likewise need a lookover/check/adjustment.
oil leak - at the lower engine portion, there would only be 3 areas where the oil could leak; oil pan gasket, front crankshaft pulley oil seal and rear crankshaft/flywheel oil seal. To determine where the oil leak is really coming from, you would need a good engine wash/degrease and thereafter visual inspect the leak.
poor power - could be a lot of things. Initially try a major tuneup and see if there are any improvement. You could also have your compression, fuel delivery and/or ignition system checked.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
