#19 of 727 bench check shift-soleniod toy-camry
Dec 08, 2007 (3:56 pm)
toyota camry just won't go..... on a clear and mild weather day the forward gears just seemed to just jump ship reving the engine seemed to give some push but realizing the catastrphy my daughter steered the car to a safe place and parked it out of the way. It is a 1996 toyota camry LE sedan, 99067 miles ,transmission never been rebuilt , the tranny seemed to stall occassionnly but with enough rev's would pic up and go....when I heard of this wile working construction in salt lake city Utah, I reccomended that she have the trans. flushed but to ofen repairmen would just shrugg and say they didn't want to risk further tranny problem and refused the work. Shure enough I hadn't been home long at all when she called on the side of the road sayin guess what...I'm in knox. tn. and my camry needs help...
Well I've got the fluid out the filter off as well as solinoid 1&2 and as I was taking off the rear sol. I noticed the bolt was about two threads loose whaat would cause this and more important do you think these would cause the tranny to shut down or is the speed sensor suspect to, also is there a way to bench check these to see if possibly the loose bolt was the problem...
Thanks so much for your help
#20 of 727 intermitten wipers
Dec 10, 2007 (3:01 pm)
Hi folks, 99 camry 4 cyl, 165,000 miles, I lost the intermitten feature on my wipers and they stop on windshield now as opposed to returning to the cowl. other than that they work fine. Should I start at the wiper motor or switch? also what kind of job am I looking at if it is a switch? I have had good luck as a do it yourselfer with some automotive education. Thanks Ryan

I have the exact same problem as ryan99 regarding the intermittent wipers on my '97 Camry - is it the switch or is there a separate solenoid I can easily change out? I do have auto repair do-it-yourself experience.
Appreciate your help.

#25 of 727 Car over heating
Dec 23, 2007 (6:03 pm)
I own a 1995 Toyota Camry 2.2 engine. Recently I gauge inside said the engine was getting hot. I checked my radiator fluid and it was good. I then changed the Thermostat, relay fan switches, Temp sensor and Radiator Coolant sensor and still the gauge is getting hot. I was told there is another relay switch for the radiator but can't seem to place where it goes. I checked and both the fans are working which tells me the fan relay switches are working but I can't seem to figure out what I am missing and why I can't seem to fix the problem. Anybody else have this issue and figured a solution?

I'd check to see if the waterpump was pumping. With the engine cold, take off the radiator cap. Turn on the engine and allow it to idle. The thermostat would be closed at this point, and you would have no flow. As the engine warms up, the thermostat should begin to open and you should see the coolant begin to move. The hotter the engine gets, the more the fluid should move.
You might also check to make sure you don't have a lot of crude in your radiator, blocking the coolant flow thru the radiator.
#27 of 727 Light Sensor Module
Dec 27, 2007 (5:33 am)
Looking for a picture and location of a 2001 Toyota Camry light sensor module.
Warning light coming in saying "replace brake light". All brake lights are working. Assuming problem is light sensor module.
Would appreciate any one's help with on-line source for a picture and purchase sight.

Not sure how you concluded a replace brake warning light, is a possible problem with a light sensor.
I'd suggest taking it to an autoparts chain, and have them read the error codes for you (or buy your own reader and do it yourself). Let's see if we can get an error code which will point you to the right area.
