    Greetings, this is my first post! I have a 1998 Camry 2.2 with a manual transmission. Recently i did a terrible thing that i later learned was a known rookie mistake.

    Hi all, Father-in-law's 98 Camry, 2.2L/auto with 148k miles. Car was burning oil so I brought it to my house to change out valve stem seals, gaskets, etc. Before this it started flawlessly. Now after getting it all back together, it started up for maybe a second or two and then died and now...

    I didn't think this engine really burned oil, but apparently the one in my father-in-laws '98 is. He called me saying the oil light was on, and that he added some oil and it went out but is now back on again. I told him it only comes on if it's like 2 quarts or more low (might not be Toyota's...

    Hi everyone, So the 2.2L 5S-FE engine in my 98 Camry just bit the dust, either it has rod knock or a dropped valve (sounds like a bunch of rocks in the engine, barely runs). Anyway, I've looked on car-part.com and various other locations and all 97+ engines go for $900-2000 depending on...

    Hi everyone, Just finished a timing belt job on a 98 Camry 5S-FE (4-cylinder) with auto trans. Whenever I start the car it makes an audible rattle/clanking noise for 1-2 seconds and immediately goes away. It only happens on cold starts and doesn't come back while running. On top of that, if...

    Hi everyone, I just bought a 98 Camry LE for my father-in-law to replace his 92. It has 121k miles and its the 4-cyl 5S-FE engine and auto trans. It starts and drives OK, not as good as my wife's 01 with 160k, but alright. I planned on just doing regular maintenance like timing belt, water...

    Hello I had originally been dealing with a P0141 code which pointed to a bad downstream O2 sensor. Had it replaced this past Wednesday and all seemed well. 3 days later and I now have a P0420 code which looks like it points to the Cat Conv. ?? Anyway, my mechanic expressed some difficulty...

    I am having an issue where my climate control does not let me change which vents are used. I have been advised by a shop that it is the climate control in the dash (with the fan/temp/source selector). Manager said it would be 2 weeks til he got the part, then it would be a $400 fix. I have...

    I came across this idea while doing some research on various fluids and it got me wondering. I'm going to be doing an ATF drain and fill and was wondering if I can use the same fluid in the power steering? :dunno: I figured i could get a 5qt jug of ATF and use the remainder from the drain and...

    My name is Theo and I've searched these threads for a solution but no luck. The window is scratched badly and I'd like to replace it. I have the new window; I have the door panel off and all the right bolts removed. The glass just won't slide out of it's rails and up out of the car. I could...

    Hi TYN! So i just ordered a set of four tokico struts and Eibach pro-kit springs ($530 shipped...) and it got me thinking that I also might want to mess with the sway bar(s), which leads to my question. Should i get both front and rear SB's or just one? ...and if only one should it be the...

    Hey TYN! Doing some work next week on the camry (New front tie rod assembly, mounting new tires, front brake job...) and I'm looking for some input on a set of brake pads to pick up. Not sure if I should go with ceramic or semi-metallic pads in this application:dunno:....what would you choose...

    Hey TYN! Been a while since my last post as I haven't done much to my 98 camry since a few gauge cluster bulb swaps and a wax. Anyways, I want to get on the winter tire subject early this year and have them in the garage and ready to go for the Minnesota snowy season. My question is mainly...

    Wondering if there is an archived storehouse somewhere that has new parts like this on hand? If any such wonderful paradise exists, how can I purchase one of these awesome add-ons? Thanks! -Sam

    Ok so ive already read the DIY sticky for this topic, but can't for the life of me tell what the specific answer is. My question, as stated, is what size is the bulb that lights up the PRND2L in the gearbox? Is it a 194 or a 74? It seems that in the DIY it flips back and forth between the two...
