1993 Toyota Camry Problems

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.

Valve Cover Gaskets May Leak Oil

The valve cover gaskets have a tendency to leak oil, especially the one near the firewall.

Automatic Transmission May Not Shift Correctly at High Mileages

At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.

1993 Toyota Camry Reviews

I went to different mechanics for the engine valve ticking problem. According to some, it has to be checked right away. To some, it's a problem which lead to a recall.

the only problem I have ever had is the check engine light comes on when I fill up with gas. occasionally I smell gas after filling up for a few minutes then it goes away. other then that no problems at all. 208,000 miles and runs great.

Best car I've ever owned. 226,000 and going strong.
