i have a 1999 Camry and basicly the same thing is happening. i took it to a service dealer and i was told it was from over filling the gas tank. gas runs down the vent line and screws up a sensor in there of some kind i was told it doesnt affect the operation of the vehicle at all. it is around 190.00 to fix the problem so for now i have decided to live with itAnswerMy "check engine light" went on and off intermittently (no pattern). The manual's first answer is that the gas cap may not be on tight enough, or is faulty, a common problem. A shop with a diagnostic machine can check this. Unfortunately, had to go to the manual's second answer, "see your dealer". My shop's scanner said I had a "faulty oxygen sensor", a much more serious problem, but not an emergency (yet). Gave me technical info on a recall for this part, up to 96 months or 80,000 miles. Answer(another 1999 Camry owner)Today, my check engine light went on immediately after filling my gasoline tank. It stayed on even after driving another 30 miles, with several turning off the engine and re-starting. Thank goodness for the answer above about the over-filled gas tank. After reading this, I simply disconnected my battery for a few minutes to reset the light. After re-connecting the battery, the light was no longer on. I figure the excess gas has evaporated from the vent line. This site saved me $$$$$, and wasting time at the dealer. P.S. I had read a dozen other sites about check engine lights in Camrys, but no other site brought up the situation of the gas tank over-fill. Thank you.
Ask this question again as "How do you rebuild the engine in a 1994 Camry with _____ engine?" replacing _____ with the specific engine in your car.
Disconnect the battery for couple minutes. But if you have problems with your engine or other monitored systems the light will go on again.
I just replaced the EGR on my 1997 Toyota Camry 4cl and it was about $300, the downside is that I purchased a part with only a 6mo warranty and at 7 mo it went out again...
Disconnect the battery for 5-10 minutes or use an error code reader (it has an option to erase codes). But if you have major problems with engine the light will come off again.
i have a toyota camry 92 model and i overfilled mu engine oil i just wanna know how i can get rid of the white smoke it was running like crap so i replaced the oil again and drained it to the right amount and replaced the spark plugs the motor is running fine again just smoking again what can i do
do it yourself dont ever try to ask this question again.
All you have to do is unplug the battery for about 10 minutes. That will reset the system, then drive the car or leave it idle for about 15 minutes. If it comes on again, then you have a problem and you should do a diagnostic test.
my dashboard lights went out, changed fuses, they worked for one day then went out again,all fuses are good.
A reset button for headlights?
Had similar problem with 1988 automatic. Turned out to be a problem with the 2 solinoids in the transmission. Installed replacement kit with engine in vehicle and regained all the shifting and kick down again. Solinoids are available as an aftermarket product far cheaper than the dealer.
Looks like you shouldn't have opened it. A Durant Toyota mechanic opened mine and it never worked again.
Try changing your spark plugs, and your spark plug wires.
Disconnect the battery for about 2-3 minutes. But if you have problems with your engine the light will come again on after some time.
There are two wires under the seat responsible for the seat belt alarm. You can play with them to disable. If during the state inspection they will find out that you disconnect it again they will make you to connect it again you will not pass the inspection.
The best way is to buy a book on your model and see if you can do it. Then! Ask again on this sight for help when you feel confident that you know what your doing to repair the speedometer.
If its not the fuses and you are getting power to the lights its most likely your ground not making contact. Clean all connections and try again.
$4 to $5 for Toyota o-ring. Don't use after-market. 1 hour labor. Go to dealership because they will warranty it for 12 months. It may leak again after 6 - 10 months. If u buy the Toyota part and give to your mechanic, u will get no warranty.
It means your steering wheel is locked. try to move it left or right a few times and try to start again. This happens once in a blue moon because of wear and tear. Send for servicing to ensure it does not happen again.
What I would do is to remove the spark plugs so there is no compression (no load on bearings) and crank over the motor for 20 seconds then rest the starter for a few minutes and crank it over again; repeat once more. I assume you have put fresh oil in motor.
The engine needs fuel, compression and spark. You are missing one of those.
Just disconnect the battery, turn ign.key to step 2 for 5 sec. swich key to off again. connect the battery and turn on the engine and the engine errorlight will turn off.
From what I have seen in my Camry, it could be a bad bulb.. and/or the door switches are bad, going bad, or dirty. Could also be faulty wiring.. especailly for a car of this age.. At times the light is brigt, other times is very dim.. I woluld check out all the wiring and the switch contacts.. again, could be going bad or dirty.
Engine cool. Open the radiator cap. Open the radiator drain plug. Open the engine block drain/drains. There are two for the V6,one on each bank. Let coolant drain. Close all drains and fill engine with distilled water. Repeat drain. Fill with distilled water again. Drain . Close drains and fill with 50/50 mixture of coolant. Run engine with radiator cap off. When air is completely expelled,refill to top of radiator. Don't forget to drain and refill the overflow tank.
battery needs replacing, make sure you replace it with a battery of correct cranking amps
