My 97 Toyota Camry has white exhaust on startup when sits for a long time. Goes away immediately, car passes smog test easily. No smell, no oil problem, no overheating. Car has great power, runs well. Does have 200k miles.

Engine light is on yet starts up okay. Fails to start once engine is turned off than turned on. Must wait awhile until engine will start again.

also after it warms up an you give it gas the engine light comes on an the lifter sound like going to come out of the engine.if you push the gas paddle easy this will not happen.unless you are on highway at 65mph and going up even a small inclimb.if in town and push gas down to much same thing.have put a nother fuel pump on an still dose the same.just cant figger it out and need help thank u

I have a 90 Acura Legend L (automatic). I was driving to a new job (uphill) and all the sudden the engine light came on and the car started dieing when I pushed on the gas. I was able to drive it back home. When I got it home I tried starting it up and it would act like it didnt want to turn over. Once it did, it would idle rough and try and die. When I push on the gas to go, it dies.

I checked the self-test and it flashed once. I changed the front O2 sensor and then check it again, it flashed twice. I changed the rear O2 sensor. I also changed the spark plug and wires along with the fuel filter and still same results.

I was told possibly my distributor so I changed that today. Now since I changed it, it wont start at all. It act like it wants to but wont turn over where before it at least did that.

I checked the spark on the spark plugs and it sparks but not at a normal spark; very low, dull spark.

Could I have done something wrong when putting it in or do you think the ignition coil is now bad?

A local oil change place told me that my power steering fluid needed to be replaced or bunch of bad things will happen. My car has about 120k miles and I don't recall if the power steering fluid has been changed. I am the original owner.

We dropped the pan, found no metal shavings, did this because three times, following a slow down and stop and then a lightly accelerated pull forward, it went, but very slowly, like it was not engaging. Once I put it in reverse and it backed right up and then put it in drive and it took right off. The other two times I was pulling up to a gas pump, slowed to a stop and then went to pull more forward and it did the same thing, but then both times took right off and I haven't had a problem with it since....any deas? Fluid was good when checked as well.

4 days ago, the car would not shift out of park and had no brake lights coming on. Used shift lock release, started in neutral, and took to dealer. Dealer replaced the Brake Switch. One day later, problem returned. Took back to dealer, they said the 15 light blue stop fuse had blown. They replaced. Worked for a day, problem came back. Each time I put a new 15 fuse in, it works temporarily, but now fries either immediately or within 4 hours, and so still can't get the car out of park still and no brake lights come on. How to fix this?

The MMI has been replaced. The dealer says that the instrument cluster must be replaced ($1500). Does the cluster really need to be replaced?
