Question about 1993 Toyota Camry V6

1 Answer

My 93 Toyota camry v6 has every once in a while the engine shakes when it starts and lets out white, blue smoke...it only does this every two to three weeks. I got a fix it ticket and when i tiook it to the mechanic they said they saw no issues and they did a smog and diagnostic and saw nothing. so i went to court with it and they dismissed the ticket but it has done it again. the car sat for two years before i baught it, any suggestions as to what it might be?

AGE,AGE, Of course it will pass smog and a diagnostic test, your valve seals are worn and doesnt seal properly so when its cold there hard like a rock but when it warms up its soft and pliable and seals. First because what you are describing is wrong sparkplug that are installed in your vehicle, they should not be platnum spark plug so replace it make sure its not a Bosch type either.

Why my toyota camry smoke at star up


The smoke might be white, blue, or sooty black.

If white, some such vapor is normal on a cold start, but lots and lots indicated a water leak into the inlet manifold or a cylinder, probably a gasket leak. If a head gasket leak, this would cause quick overheating.

If blue,this is oil smoke from worn piston rings or worn valve stem seals. Oil can also get into the inlet manifold via a faulty PCV valve. A compression check will tell you more.

If sooty black, this is over-rich fuel mixture, and may be due to a number of things, such as a faulty temperature sender, a faulty fuel pressure regulator, or a stuck-open injector.

93' toyota camry takes to long to warm up in the


Sounds like a dead spark plug or faulty wire, or even out of time. Start with changing plugs. No change, do the wires. No change check the timing belt. It may have jumped a cog. As for the slow to warm up part, the misfire won't help that problem, but you may need to change the thermostat if it doesn't improve once you get it running on all cylinders.

your diagnosis would seem to be correct. when a head gasket goes, coolant can leak into the combustion chamber where the coolant turns to steam and vents to the exhaust.

93 camry 3.0L V6 timing belt


A 6 cylinder is an interference fit engine . Chances are you bent some valves IF the belt slipped.
Mounts usually don't make a vehicle shake as you described.
I believe the milage intervalfor timing belts is every 60 thousand.
Good luck

93 camry v6 216,000 miles started buring oil after oil change,,thick white smoke from exhaust..bought car used..no history.. whats the best approach to fixing this problem??


try using thicker oil sounds like it has much engine wear and the thin oil is just slipping by the rings and burning with the fuel.also check your pcv valve if its bad it will allow engine to **** in oil and burn it with combustion.
