Re: 1990 Toyota Camry Problem
like i said earlier the fluid is added through the dipstick of course be sure to have it operating temperature first and to cycle through each gear from R through 1 slowly twice. This will ensure all of the area in the torque converter is full and give a proper reading. Remember to add the fluid slowly so it does not flood out and do not overfill.
Low tranny fluid however will not make the car stall or disable it from starting. This is a seperate problem. Let me know how starting goes next time you try or if you have a no start condition again

The leak at the fire wall, do you see it coming from up high on your engine or just see it at the bottom dripping off? I would think in that area an oil pan gasket leak sounds like the usual suspect. Can't think of what would be leaking higher up unless its the block which u probably wouldn't want to think bout. The leak round your belts, where exactly is that coming from? Are you sure it's oil and not power steering fluid? the power steering pumps hose could be leaking and throwing fluid up on the pulleys while they are spinning. I'd make sure that isn't the case here. Hope I could help. I'd need more direct location of where fluid is coming from to help more accurately.
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.
Theres no reservoir but the dip stick is behind the engine.If standing infront of the car looking at the motor in the middle of the motor back behind the intake towards the exhaust pipe you'll see a red or yellow rubber looking top.Thats it just dont mistake it for the oil dipstick..If you find one and its bihind the moyor you've found it...
Either fuel sensor is bad or coated with sulfur residue from inferior gas. Try a can of Sea Foam gas treatment OR can of Techuron concentrate. Both available at auto parts and , of course, Walmart ! Add to full gas tank, drive 75 - 100 miles and see if all is well. If not, condide4 sensor change
generally camrys are automatic and if so the fluid goes right into where the dipstick came out of. be sure to add it slowly so it does not come up the dipstick and flood out and be careful not to overfill it.
