First buy a can of flush to put in your engine oil. then run your engine for a few days to get hot and breakdown the sludge and varnish inside the engine. Change the engine oil while it is hot and refill with good quality oil. I always use castrol synthetic as a personal preference.

You can best flush the radiator on your 1992 Camry by taking it to a shop that has the proper equipment to do a complete fluid exchange while the car is at operating temperture. You cannot do a complete flush if the car engine is cold, because the thermostat blocks passages in the engine block.
