1999 Toyota Camry Problems

Motor Mount on Passenger Side May Wear Out on Higher Mileage Vehicles

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.

Check Engine Light Due to Failed Oxygen Sensor Component

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.

Power Steering Pump and Hoses May Leak and Need Replacing

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

Toyota 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.

Totaled corolla at 275000km bought used camry with 60000km on it. now have 390000 km on it and need back struts. a small power steering leak which is very manageable. The best car out there.
Nothing but trouble with this beast since hitting 50K. First engine blew at 75K miles. Replaced(rebuilt) under extended warranty. Second engine blew with 75K miles on it(40K when installed +35K my driving) Been a money pit since I bought it. Had no problems with my previous Camry so was surprised at how bad this one is.
