1996 Toyota Camry Problems
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.

It read erratically for awhile and by that I mean the needle jumped up and down constantly. Then it quit, staying below the C on the gauge
1996 Toyota Camry Recalls
Toyota is recalling 1996 Camry models because the plastic material of the bulb holders of the rear tail light assembly does not have sufficient heat resistance. When the bulb is illuminated, the resulting high temperature can cause the bulb holder to deform. This may cause the bulb to lose electrical contact and become inoperative, increasing the risk of an accident. Dealers will inspect and replace the bulb holder and harness if necessary.
Toyota is recalling 1996 T100, Camry, Celica, Corolla, and Tacoma models because the cruise control system may fail to hold the speed set by the driver and can accelerate above the intended set speed. This can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the cruise control assemblies.

The car has 170,000 miles on it but still works great as long as it receives regular maintenance. After 12 years the only problem I've come across is oil leaks which are easily fixed.
