#4802 of 5279 Camry Engine Oil Pump
Apr 11, 2006 (1:11 pm)
I recently changed out the 2.2L engine on a 1997 toyota camry with a 2.0L off a 1999 Rav4. Also switching the exhaust manifold, intake manifold, and oil pan. I got it to start, but the head is not receiving oil from the oil pan. After running it, the oil is still as clean as when I poured it. Is my problem an oil pump? If it is, where is it located? Is it the same for both models and how do I change it out? Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like you put in too deep of an oil pan, and the oil level isn't high enough to be picked up by the pump.

The oil pan is the same size on both models and the dip stick shows plenty of oil so is there something else?
#4805 of 5279 Is this a problem with my engine?
Apr 12, 2006 (2:12 pm)
I recently, drove 800 miles and the car (Toyota Camry LE 2000 4 cly) was fully loaded with my luggage and stuff. The car had trouble pulling that much weight. I did not have much problem in my entire journey, or may be I did not pay much attention to the engine of my car while travelling. But after completing my journey, I get a burnt smell even after drive a couple of miles with out any load in the car.
Is there anything wrong with my engine? The engine Check light is NOT ON. Is there anything that I need to worry about or look into, to make sure everything is fine with the engine.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

At a minimum, check the oil. You may need to add some.
While you're under the hood, you might want to check if oil or other fluid has leaked or spilled onto the engine.

I'm having the same problem and have tried to get the check engine light to clear out. My vehicle is a 95 camry V6 with 204k miles and at 201K the check engine light came on. The error code is unsufficent airflow EGR error. So now I've replaced the catalytic converter, EGR valve, EGR solenoid and EGR sensor but still no change. Now they are thinking that the vacuum switching valves need to be replaced. Any suggestions?

I checked my '05 Camry's seat belt this morning, and it's no different than the '04's: I can stick my hand between the buckle/latch plate and my body.
But on my '98 Nissan Frontier with a bench seat, the buckle and latch plate DO touch my body, but not to the point of being uncomfortable.
Back to the Camry, I think if you're a large-framed person (not necessarily overweight, just big-boned), you are going to be wider across the hips than I am, and you will touch the belt buckle.
#4810 of 5279 Whining 2006 Camry
Apr 15, 2006 (3:11 pm)
My new 2006 Camry makes a turbine-like high-pitched whining noise from the engine area when slowing down/decelerating from ~35mph to stop. The noise is not present when I accelerate or in neutral, only when slowing down. Any ideas what might be causing the whining noise?
