so after i left it sitting for 3 days i went and changed the oil cause iv never seen red toyota anti freeze in my life before i changed it too felt strange but their was no oil in it so my car got alot quieter system Check light on went to Advanced n they hooked it up to their machine and told me their was a Vaccum leak they told me to get a can of choke and spray it on the hoses untill i hear it idling
Below is something of interest if you have not seen it. toyotaV6oilLineScandal This appears to be what toyota calls a Limited Service Campaign versus a Recall. A recall is typically for safety related issues. Examples would be the steering wheel may not have been properly tightened at the factory air bag system may have a defect brakes etc. This appears to be a 3 phase campaign with camry included
Thanks Toyomoho I just watched a video of Erikthecarguy on youtube as he applied the vacuum to the ac to look for leaks. Complicating my job is that I will be converting it to r134a from r12. After doing a vacuum check on the system and probably Ill find it doesnt hold vacuum I wonder if it would do much harm at all if I used a little r134a (with the dye) to detect the leak. Ive done a bit of research
Lots of opinions out there. Suggest reviewing pre-R134a posts at the toyotanation.com website for suggestions on toyota vehicles. You can still buy real R12 at sites like Ebay. Supposedly mineral oil and R134A dont mix. The system still has mineral oil in the tubes etc. Since the system has no freon might remove and drain the compressor then flush out the old oil with ester oil. Make sure you get all
plastic housing. Filters should be able at auto parts stores. With the proper tools and procedures you can DIY. The 4 cylinder is a 2ARFE Suggest to first do an internet search on the subject of changing the oil filter for your model engine. You should find many hits with directions and perhaps a few YouTube videos. You will need a tool to grip the bottom of the filter housing. The link below is toyota
When you know the situation is going to occur have someone else start the engine while you smell the smoke. Try to determine if the odor is oil water vapor or coolantwater. Start monitoring the coolant level in the radiator overflow tank and if it is dropping without any known cause.
Thanks for responding. Ive noticed that my coolant tank was getting low but i filled it time to time and the smoke smells kind of gas oil a little bit of both its really complicated stink maybe coolant vapor because smoke is bright white not grayish white. but im still getting decent gas mileage I thought the problem is catalytic converter but it passed the smog test not that long ago. if its the cooling system whats the possible solution
The fix of course depends on what is wrong with the engine. It appears to be the head bolts but best to check all possible causes until the problem area is found. If the head bolts did pull out then the threads in the block would need to be repaired. Individuals and shops have been using a threaded insert system in the block. A Google search will turn up many hits. The engine is a 2AZ-FE. toyotas fix
Not a toyota warranty expert but thought the drive train was warranted for 5Y60K. The drive train would is engine transmission axles etc excluding expendable parts as accessory belts and coolant hoses. Suggest you read the warranty in the owner™s manual. Would think the VVTi piping system would be part of the engine given it supplies oil to the camshaft rotation system. The cam rotation results in

The boot only protects the steering rod and seal from dirt and debris it does not keep the oil from coming out of the steering housing. The seal inside the housing is worn out. The fix is time consuming and requires taking out the steering housing. It is often cheaper to but a new or rebuilt steering unit then to take the old one apart (shop for aftermarket parts to save money). The steering rod rack
Thanks for the response. I need to give a bit more info on these matters. I started this thread because I have two 1997 camrys with drivers side oil leaks. On the one I was tackling first I believe I have accurately identified it as a rack and pinion seal leak. Fluid was coming from a cracked inner tie rod end boot. Power steering fluid level in the reservoir was dropping Ive just tried some stop leak
What makes you think the system needs oil 1.4 to 1.7 Oz. An internet search on R12 compressor oil will come up with hits and who sells it. There are devices that can add the oil when the system is pressured such as the at the link below 14388 Robinair Compressor oil Pump Includes Cap And Seal Assembly Siphon Kit You will need to find something having the correct fitting to attach to the low pressure
from the ac compressor seller ------------------------------------------ 1990 camry dx 4cyl with automatic re manufactured ac compressor takes R-12 is refrigerant of the AC system takes 27 Oz. R-12 This is the oil takes 7.50 Oz. r12 Mineral Warranty Requirements blah blah blah . . .
are available from aftermarket sources for 98 and 99 if you want to go this route. When removing the pan take precautions not be bend the gasket flange on the pan when it off the engine. Pan nutbolt torque is 69 IN-LBF not that much. Might pickup new exhaust pipe gaskets in case the old ones are damaged. One at the exhaust manifold connection one at the converter to exhaust pipe connection. toyota
coming. For remote systems the remote key FOB can and does fail often beyond a battery. Smart Keys have a real key for backup. It is smart to have spare Smart Keys some place secure as replacements can be expensive and take time to obtain. 3 seconds to kill the engine is way too long when the driver is in panic mode (not thinking clearly) and this has resulted in fatalities. Am very surprised toyota
hey Joey the filter in the tank (the sock) on the bottom of the fuel pump was probably 75% clogged. took a can of carb cleaner to it and it runs great. initially i thought it was the filter under the hood that was clogged. thats why i was so frustrated because it didnt realize that there was a filter in the tank to. a couple months ago i blew the timing belt. i had an oil leak that i figured id fix
dots are facing the same direction during installation. The oil pump housing has a preformed O-ring around the edge. It is best you replace this Oring as it distorts over time and may be difficult to push back into the grove on the pump housing. The seal is available from aftermarket and maybe if you look hard enough the preformed Oring. If this is all you need to do suggest getting both from toyota.
I agree this is a little perplexing. On cold start-up you should get higher pressure at lower rpms as the oil is thicker and offers more resistance to flow. Remember pressure is the measure of flow resistance. There is a pressure control valve in the system which bleeds off excess flow to limit pressure. I would think it is at or near the oil pump. This valve may be bleeding off when cold and working
If the engine idles OK doubt if there is a vacuum leak. Crank the engine over with the ignition system disconnected. Determine by sound if one or more cylinders has very low compression. If so the cranking speed will increase as the cylinder with low compression is pressured during its compression stroke. Does the engine miss under load etc Have you tried down shifting manually to increase engine RPM
If the oil pump system is working OK you should be able to crank the engine (ign system disconnected) until the oil pressure builds up and the oil pressure light goes out. If you cant do this you have a problem. If you can not do the above to build up oil pressure DONT start the engine The oil to the cams will go up through the head and out the journal bearings. When you installed the parts did you
Assume you checked for oil leaks. Check the engines PCV system for plugging (if it has one). Remove the plugs and determine if one is different in appearance then the others oil due to higher oil blow-by in that cylinder. A compressor or leak down test may reveal compression issues. This engine does have issues with high oil consumption apparently due to piston rings problems. And the head bolts can
Well my car is about paid off finally so im thinking of a CAI or short ram style...It was a k&n style made by k&n and was a bit pricey i think like 200 or more...I have looked into the Injen models too....I remember putting one on my cousins 94 corolla and he actually lost gas mileage but boy was it fun to drive lol...I guess thats why im asking if anyone has one if they noticed any real difference...Im not much on speeding anymore the tickets arent worth it..I just want to let it breathe a bit more easily Car has roughly 200k now and was just looking to do something to give her a break so to speak lol... Well maintain always change oil with synthetic every 3-4 k change tranny fluid and filter antifreeze an thermostat etc... Just looking for input from any CAI owners I suppose...Is it worth it or should i keep the stock airbox with K&N filter Ive notice a bit of improvement with the K&N filter as soon as I bought the car I put it in and she had a deep tone durning mild load and full throttle...But its a camry who am i kidding lol
I think youre loosing too much sleep over this. The engine thermostat should keep your engine temp constant in any heat so Florida should not matter. oil temp gauge would tell you how hot oil is getting but for most daily drivers I would not worry idling or not. Constant idling just means more hours on oil than miles would indicate so you would want to change more often. Changing grades probably more
yeah if dipstick shows nothing you do not start the engine. brake fluid can get darl also but it has very distinct smell easy to differentiate between the brake fluid and engine oil. I am most curious about pop. Sounds like something under high pressure blew. I am not curious how oil got onto wheel thats quite irrelevant. moving air flow sometimes does wierd stuff to fluids. Is it on the front or back
Its tough to solve these issues when you dont have basic test equipment to isolate the problem or have not done some basic troubleshooting before hand. A vacuum gauge for instance would tell you if you have a large vacuum leak. The metel-to-metal may be because you put a lot of carb cleaner down the intake and it washed the cylinder walls clean of oil but thats only a guess. Once the engine gets full
You didnt happen to loose any faseners scrwes etc...did you Im only kidding. Anyways when i clean my TB - which is a lot less work and fluid than you used for all your parts...i have trouble cranking up too. NO metal sounds though just cranking and no ignition. Typically it is because it is still flooded with cleaner. Hopefully you were able to let it air out over night. You should be able to start
Cant hurt but be careful not to use too much as you will foul the plugs. Even plain oil would help.
Just changeing the trans pan oil will not drain the entire system. You need to either use the specialized equipment available in some shops to flush and replace or you need to do it yourself. DIY takes a helper and is more involved but a lot cheaper. Dont forget that the differentialit has to be drained and filled separately.
We change or flush every30k since there is no filter and the entire system doesnt hold that much. Be sure to use the fluid the manufacture recommends I mean read the lable before u dump the fluid in. Reason for changing so much is because of no filter and v-6 is a little tougher on that trans. [alignleft] [align]

The woven area is a flexible section of pipe to allow movement between the engine and chassis exhaust systems. Given the section is weaved metal it is possible oil could have gotten into the weaving and now is burning off. With age this section of pipe can leak but does not start smoking.
best product on the market are Seafoam and Lucas. as of lately I am looking into Miracle Mystery oil too. will try it soon. btw cleaner as in what you trying to clean fuel system Seafom. sludge inside the engine valves combustion chambers sticky rings Seafoam.

This is a very common leak point for the 2.2L. Replace the VC gaskets and the cam plug. Do NOT EVER use any stop leak for the engine or the cooling system- EVER. JJ
When the engine cold there would be condensation coming out this would stop after warm up. If all the time watch the coolant level if dropping it could be a head gasket issue. Make sure it is water vapor and not white oil smoke. This engine is known for aging valve stem seals that leak oil at cold start up. The result can be a large cloud of white smoke.

Thanks for posting back. Would make sense. Keep the PS fluid handy as needed. FYI the PS system takes the same fluid as the trans which these days is called ATF fluid.
replacement belts fit all years. The balance shafts on the 5SFE are gear driven unlike Honda which used an additional cogged belt besides the timing belt. toyota updated the 5SFE engine each year in areas of ign and fuel systems cylinder head design emissions systems etc. As such although the same engine model it is not the same engine design. The make engine swaps more difficult. The 2002 camry

least replace the receiverdryer which is cheap and easy. There are down sides to using 134 in an R12 system. 134 will leak faster because its molecules are smaller and it will not perform as well with R12 designed components - especially ones that old. You should have any remaining R12 evacuated with a shop machine then you can pull your own vacuum with your pump. I converted my R12 system (not camry)
