1993 Toyota Camry Problems

Valve Cover Gaskets May Leak Oil

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

Ignition Coil Inside Distributor May Fail

The ignition coil inside the distributor may fail. Our technicians tell us this may result in a hesitation on acceleration, especially when the vehicle is warming up on cold, rainy days. The pickup coils inside the distributor can also fail and cause a no-start condition. There have also been some failures of the radio noise suppressors inside the distributors, which can short out. Our technicians recommend replacing the whole distributor with a complete, genuine Toyota distributor if any of its components fail.

Check Engine Light Due to Failed Oxygen Sensor Component

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.

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. I'll just keep up the regular things you do as far as maintenance goes and it'll still be around for a long time!
Best car I've ever owned. 226,000 and going strong.
