1998 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.

1998 Toyota Camry Recalls
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.
1998 Toyota Camry Reviews
I bought this car with 193,000 miles. It runs great! Now, I have 240,000 miles on it mostly highway. I get around 28-32 MPG! Since I bought the car, I had put new shocks, timing belt, water pump, and the usual oil change and occassional wheel alignment. Just got 4 new tires, rides like new again! My goal is to drive this car till it hits +300K, that wouldn't be an issue I think!
I own a Toyota Camry 1998, bought used, had 90.000 miles, currently has 250,000 and runs great, the only thing I had to change are the shock absorbers have given maintenance services. I highly recommend this vehicle, I have the intention of purchasing another Camry, a car is very reliable and it retains its value.
I've purchased my 1998 Toyota Camry this year 2012 of February with a little over 90,000 miles on it ...the only thing I've had to repair was the timing belt & water pump along with the cover gasket..it seems to burn gas but other than that its reliable so far. It's better than my gas eater 2003 Silverado Truck
