#4458 of 5279 Injector & Transmission Problems In Toyota Camry 1990 model V6
Jan 05, 2006 (10:54 pm)
I drive toyota camry V6 1990 model. I observed the following problems. The ATF drops and i took to my mechanics for inspection and repairs. A transmission cable was changed. After sometime the steering becomes stif and later the ATF often leak away each time i fill the container.
Furthermore, the car doesnt pick immediately I accelerate.
The engine goes of while on motion or whenever i slow down.
Secondly, the car consumes more gas than before, the injector valve was changed but there is no significant difference.
Kindly forward your suggestions to me. I will appreciate them.

Toyota has issued a technical service bulletin to address the transmission lag problems. I can't say whether a bulletin has been issued for '06 models yet, but you may want to check with your dealer.

Since you got the free fix, I assume you were able to prove reasonable maintenance. What were your oil change intervals?
(BTW, I think the campaign is for 8 yrs unlimited miles and it does not include all Toyota models, but quite a few, like Camry, Avalon, Highlander, Sienna, Celica and some Lexus models as well. There is an old discussion forum here that goes into some detail on the problem - just search Edmunds for "sludge").

I saw your problem about putting your camry in reverse I talked to my transmission shop and he said that if nothing popped and your engine died you might have gotten by with out any problems. The other person who also answered your question about this problem was to change out your transmission fluid
and keep it changed every 20,000 miles. When I change mine I use mobil one synthetic transmission fluid you can use this fluid up till the 2002 camry which has a special fluid for the transmission.

I do not have a V6 but the brakes always felt as if they were not adjusted correctly. I took the car to the dealer several times because the brakes you did not feel as firm as other vehicles but they told me that Toyota's had a soft touch to them!

Clean the idle air bypass port/channel and then disconnect the battery for ten or 15 minutes to force the ECU to relearn the idle air bypass control solenoids charactoristics.
If the above doesn't help then replace the idle air bypass solenoid and repeat the battery disconnect procedure.

YES, I have had problems is my 2002 Camry V6 brakes. Very soft, until last month I had to push the brake all the way in to even brake. So I took it to the toyota dealership, b/c still on warranty, and they resurfaced the rotors, replaced the brake pads and I think the brake fluid (ran me about $300) Got the car back and the brakes were a little less soft, but squeaking, like a bird was in my engine, and also like brakes squeak when your brake pads need to be replaced. I took it back for the third time, and they re-did the work for no charge. But, now a week later, the brakes are still squeaking. I had a '93 camry that was amazing. I have hated the ABS on this '02 camry, at times it feels dangerous. Be wary, apparently I am finding out that camrys have several problems, including suspension problems, which might have caused my tires to wear so bad I have replaced them once, and they need replaced again. My car has 53K miles, but I have taken care of it and that is mostly highway miles, I bought it new.
#4466 of 5279 2002 Solara motor problems-4-cylinder, 68k

My wife calls me at work, said the heater wasn't getting warm. She looks down at the gauges and the temp was in the red. She pulls over and sees oil leaking out from under the car. After work, I go to check it out. There's oil blown all over the back of the engine, no coolant in the radiator. I add 1 quart of oil to get the level back up to a safe level and crank it. The water pump has gone bad, but the motor sounds fine. Due to lack of funds, I have it towed to my shop at home so I can maybe repair it myself. My question is, Where did all this oil come from? Bad head gasket maybe? As soon as she saw there was a problem, she pulled over and shut it down so maybe it won't be too serious. I'll try to post a pic later, any help would be greatly appreciated.
