just started leaking oil@200,000+ miles

I was trying to park my 98 Camry when it stalled. I put it in park and tried to restart it and it would not start. I was not able to put it in neutral unless I used the emergency gear release button. I parked it and now after one week the battery has died too. What could have caused it to die the first time and not restart?

hello all today i bought my first car in life :), its a camry 98 automatic transmission, i bought it from a person in my city via internet, during the drive test its A/C was literally throwing out white snow like air and it was really chilling but today when i finally paid the money and transferred the car to my name the A/C isnt cooling at all it is more like as if it has turned on the ordinary fan. the A/C button light seems fused cuz it was not turned on even on the drive test day but at that day it was cooling brilliantly today when i turned on the a/c it sorta puts equal amount of load on engine in both states when the a/c button is on or when it is off, it will blow the air but its not cool, HELP!!! :) thanks you. Regards. Horizon

The dealership says my water pump is leaking. My coolant recovery tank is overflowing, when I loosen the radiator cap the tank overflows. The radiator is losing coolant, however, very little. Sometimes white smoke is coming from the muffler. Toyota says it will be $895 to replace water pump and this a fair price
