1997 Toyota Camry ProblemsAutomatic 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.
The proper repair for a leaking Steering Rack & Pinion is replacement with a new unit.

1997 Toyota Camry RecallsRecall 99V307000
Toyota is recalling 1997 Camrys due to a possible jamming of the lock pin of the key interlock solenoid, which makes it possible to remove the ignition key when the shift lever is not in the "Park" position. This may cause the driver to fail to move the shift lever into "Park," which can cause the parking brake not to activate. Dealers will replace the key interlock solenoid.
