Question about 1994 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Toyota Camry 2.2 1994 model

At high speed the car runs quite well but the car jerks(engine misfires) when car stops at traffic light and when car is in reverse gear.
Mechanic has changed spark plugs, plug wires and a put in a reconditioned distributor. He also changed some setting on the Electronic circuit board. Problem persist although the car runs much better at high speeds.

I also noticed that since he did the above, the car does not produce as much exhaust fumes and I can get about 550 km per full tank when in the past I could get only about 440 km per full tank.

Have your mechanic check the timing belt marks and the condition of the belt itself. If the cam is retarded a 1/2 tooth due to age, this will create this problem as well. Have him also check for any vacuum leaks at the intake.

you may have a fuel filter/pump problem which can cause this type of problem if it can supply enough fuel to run the motor,and can cause stalling problems and popping noise out the exhaust.you may have to have it put on a scan tool to check for a code that may not set the check engine light,and the car driven with the tool on it so they can take a snap shot of the problem when it happens so they can study the information to see if something is showing up.

1991 Camry running rich


check for vacuum leaks especially around the intake manifold gasket. Although the engine appears to be running rich, it could also be misfiring due to being too lean in one cylinder. When the cylinder doesn't fire the charge, it goes into the exhaust completely unburned and looks like a rich running condition due to the unburned fuel. If it is a vacuum leak causing the problem, the engine will run fine at road speeds but misfire at idle and not pass smog.
