1999 Toyota Camry Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1999 Toyota Camry

The power steering pump and power steering hoses tend to develop leaks, particularly in the V6 models.

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.

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.

I love this car. I have changed belts including timing belt and water pump at the same time fluid and filters never had a problem with it gets GREAT gas mileage between 25-30mpg.The car has 150,000 miles on it. I have a hum starting in the back but other than that it is great.

I had a 99 Camry. It had 265,000 miles on it when it was totaled 2 years ago. I drove it 200k of that. I am sure I would still be driving it now. It still had the original exhaust. Best car I ever owned.

I bought the car new back in September of 1998 and it now has 350,000 miles on it. It still gets 25-30 mpg and works great considering the age of the car. I have made some repairs on it myself and it has not been difficult. This car has been a blessing to me.
