1991 Toyota Camry Problems

Failed Emissions Test Due to Blocked EGR System

The EGR System tends to get restricted or blocked with carbon after 100,000- 125,000 miles which will cause an emissions test failure for NOX. If the EGR system is equipped with an EGR temperature sensor it will trigger a Check Engine Light for improper EGR flow. The repair is to clean out the EGR passages and the EGR Temperature sensor. Our technicians tell this repair is pretty straight forward and takes about 1-1.5 hours. It is also wise to verify the EGR system components i.e. the Transducer, EGR Valve and VSV Solenoid at this time.

Motor Mount on Passenger Side May Wear Out on Higher Mileage Vehicles

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.

Driving Over Bumps May Cause Loud Noises in Body of Vehicle

Driving over bumps causes loud, annoying noises in the body of the car. If the noise is a groaning or creaking, it can be improved by lubricating the rubber joints in the suspension system. If the noise is a rattling sound, the problem is likely wear and tear on the upper mounting plate for one or more of the suspension struts.

I just bought my 1991 Camry and it has 136,668 miles on it and runs perfect. All it needs is a tune-up and a paint-job, and I will probably change out the belts just to be on the safe side. It's a perfect little car.
