Hi Juan !
the spark plugs wires are 4 (four) the engine works in sequence of 1342 on the distributor cap mostly writes 1 ( one ) this means the first piston-the first spark -lead. if it is there then go clockwise and put the rest following the firing order I wrote above.
Do the spark plugs have spark? Is it getting fuel? Answers to these questions should lead you in the proper direction. Ignition or fuel. Get a code reader to check for trouble codes . They are fairly reasonable in price and can be a great help if you have a code stored. They can be purchased at a retail auto parts store. They can only tell you if you have a bad sensor or something of that nature though.
common for the well around the plugs to fill with oil.ensure the gasket fot the cam cover is correctly tightened using the correct sealing compound/gasket(both).if its just a small amount leave it alone.it wont hurt.
Four cylinder: Remove spark plug wire boots (four in a row on top of
the engine). DO NOT PULL ON THE WIRE only the rubber top. Make sure the
wires are numbered, if not, number them. They MUST go back to the same
hole they came out of after the new plugs are installed. Remove
with a 16mm spark plug wrench. Install new plugs (any auto parts store
can tell you what your options are here): Start threading the new plugs by
hand so you don't cross thread the engine head by accident. Then
complete tightening them gently. Spark plugs are supposed to be
tightened to a specific torque: 13ftlbs in this case. If you choose to
not use a torque wrench do not overtighten the plugs. Reinstall boots
6-Cylinder: Remove engine cover, if present. Disconnect the six
connectors on each of the ignition coils. Remove each of the six
ignition coil bolts and then remove the coils by pulling straight up --
arrange them so that you know which goes back where. Remove and install
the six plugs
as described above. Reinstall the ignition coils with their bolts
(torque: 69 in-lbs), then wires. Replace the cover.
So you're saying it starts to shake as soon as you put it in gear? If so, you probably have a dead spark plug or plug wire, or disconnected plug wire. It could be something more serious. Head gasket, cam shaft, timing chain. Try the plugs and wires first, and go from there.
What I show is that for a 2002 Camry there was a 2.4 liter engine. I don,t believe they made a 2.5 liter. The DS model came with the 4 cylinder. A 2.5 Four cam would be a V6 DOHC and Toyota made a 3.0 DOHC not a 2.5.
