Question about 1995 Toyota Camry
My car is a Toyota Sera automatic engine 5E.The ABS light is on and it does not engage to R and when it moves foward strugles to change up and down.It also boils quickly.
One problem you might have (I think there are several, perhaps not related) is that the overheating is being caused by a failed head gasket.
When they fail, there are symptoms you can check for:
- Oil discolored, possibly looking more like hand lotion instead of oil.
- Oil in the coolant; it should not have any traces of oil in it which will also cause discoloration.
- Excessive and obviously wet (=new) oil or water deposits around the union of cylinder head (it is under the valve cover) and the block (the major portion of the engine below the head.)
- Rusty spark plugs - this may occur in only one instance or could show up on several, depending on the severity of the gasket failure.
The ABS light is a warning that youir braking performance is vastly reduced and wheel lockup can occur.
The old habit of 'pumping' the brakes on slick surfaces is needed until the problem is solved to avoid lockup and loss of control.
I'm sorry I cannot offer help on the other problems but the overheating needs to be attended to since this can lead to further severe damage.
