1990 Toyota Camry Problems

The power steering pump and power steering hoses tend to develop leaks, particularly in the V6 models.

The Check Engine Light may illuminate because a component of the oxygen sensor stops working. As a result the engine computer is unable to determine the proper ratio of air to fuel for the engine. Replacing the failed oxygen sensor should correct this concern.

One or more motor mounts may wear out on cars with high mileage. This will put extra stress on the other mounts, and the faulty mount(s) should be replaced.

1990 Toyota Camry Recalls

Toyota is recalling 1990 Camry models because the electronic control unit (ECU) for the power door lock system can fail, causing the contacts to "weld." This may result in door lock solenoid damage, which may make the doors fail to lock or unlock, even under manual operation. This can prevent passengers from exiting the vehicle in an emergency situation. Dealers will install an additional subcircuit relay control to prevent malfunction of original relays in the ECU.
