1994 Toyota Camry Problems

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.

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.

Toyota Recalls 1994 Camrys Due to Steering Problems

Toyota is recalling 1994 Camry models because the steering wheel set nut may not have been sufficiently tightened, which may cause steering vibration and looseness. The nut may eventually come off, allowing the steering wheel to separate from the steering shaft. This can lead to a loss of vehicle control, which can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will re-tighten the steering set nut.
