#3613 of 5279 Re: 2003 Toyota Camry V6 problem (check engine light) [ricarey]
Jul 15, 2005 (9:48 am)
My 1996 Camry LE 4 cyl. passed the CA smog test on 6/1/05. Approximately two weeks ago, the engine light came on indicating a catalytic converter problem. A mechanic has insisted that I need to replace both O2 sensors, as well as the converter.
You have stated that O2 sensors can be replaced by someone other than a mechanic. Also, how can I be sure that I actually need to replace the converter?

Our '96 RAV just needed a new one. We had it done at Midas for about the same price Toyota wanted for just the part...AND got a 5 year warranty!

Jul 17, 2005 (5:50 pm)
Have 91 Camry with about 100k miles. Seems like oil burns up and have to add oil periodically before next oil change. Oil changes are every 3k with Castrol High Mileage. Does not leak. Any suggestions?

I have 1997 Totyota Camry. The check engine light came on yesterday. I drove 14 mile to work and now the light is blinking and engine does not have full power. It feel like it going to stop. I checked the gas cap and it fine. Car has 173 K mile. Is there anything that I can replace my self. I know some about car but don't have tester. Thank you for your help

A flashing check engine light indicates a fault, usually a misfire, which if not corrected can damage the catalytic converter. You'll have to get the stored diagnostic trouble codes retrieved first so you know which circuit/system is affected. AutoZone will do it no charge.
#3619 of 5279 Hesitation...Re: Just an update... [commish1]
Jul 18, 2005 (9:37 am)
I wonder if everyone reporting hesitation problems with their Camry V6 has tried using the recommended premium gas: While my hesitation hasn't been severe, I noticed that it seemed to disappear after filling up with premium.
Perhaps the hesitation is caused by the retarded spark the engine has to have to burn low octane gas?

How much oil is added and at what mileage is oil added before the 3k miles? I use half quart of oil between 3k oil changes on my 89 Camry 4cyl with 222k miles, mostly due to minor leaks.

It's been about a month since you posted this message. I've had the overhead councel apart on my 04 Camry, but I don't know if you still need advice.
Let me know.
#3622 of 5279 1995 Toyota Camry Stalling when Rain and rough idle
Jul 19, 2005 (6:46 am)
I have a 1995 Toyota camry bought a few years ago that my son drives. Its kept up pretty well. Car itself has over 300000 mile yes thats right 300000 miles. My problem is I've taken it to a repair shop about 5 times now and they cant find whats wrong. Plugs, distributor wires, cap, rotor,emissions, fuel and oil filters all have been checked or replaced. My problem is the car will stall when you come to a stop especially in the rain. When its dry is not that bad but has a somewhat of a rough idle. The runs fine at a high idle and if you put the vehicle in neutral when you come to a stop. I have a 4 cylinder, fuel injected front wheel drive camry. We have use fuel injector cleaners and it seamed to work for a short period of time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
