1998 Toyota Camry ProblemsPower Steering Leak From Pump and/or Hose
The power steering pump and power steering hoses tend to develop leaks, particularly in the V6 models.
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.
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.

1998 Toyota Camry RecallsToyota Recalls 2001 Camrys for Deformed Accelerator Cable Housing
Toyota is recalling certain 2001 Camry models equipped with cruise control and V6 engines because the accelerator cable housing could be deformed at the cruise control actuator-to-throttle body connection. This may cause the accelerator inner-cable to wear and eventually break, allowing the throttle to return to idle or remain in its most recent position, regardless of pedal operation, which increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the accelerator cable.
