2002 Toyota Camry ProblemsOne or More Motor Mounts 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.
The pickup coil inside the distributor can fail and cause a no-start condition. There have also been some failures of the radio noise suppressors inside the distributor which can short out. It is recommended to replace the whole distributor with a complete genuine Toyota distributor if any of its components fail.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate with code P0770 and/or P0773 stored. This would indicate a fault with the 3-way lock-up solenoid which could be defective and may need replacement.

2002 Toyota Camry RecallsToyota Recalls 2002–2004 Camrys Due to Defective Air Bags
Toyota is recalling 2002–2004 Camry models with curtain shield air bags (CSA) because one or both curtain air bags may be twisted near the inflator. If this occurs, the air bag may not deploy rapidly enough when activated in a side impact collision, failing to provide intended head protection. Dealers will inspect the CSA and replace the air bag assembly if necessary.
The improper tires may have been installed when upgraded wheels were installed on the vehicle. Dealers will inspect and replace all five tires as necessary to resolve the concern.
