  1. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a nice 2022. I have a 1991 Camry that is losing oil. The car has the 2.0L 3S-FE and the 5-speed manual trans. The odometer reads 163,500, and outside of this oil loss problem and a nonworking rear defroster, the car is in survivor condition...
  2. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    Almost time to do the swap over into my 91 Camry (Bumblebee). After searching, and blazing through both the Camry and MR2 forums in regards to information pertaining to the 5SFE motor in particular, I'm still a bit curious to those who've made the swap with theirs here. Alongside successes and...

Very similar but not quite the same lol The fe dizzy fits and seems to be the same length to the gear where it connects into the motor and the bolts to tighten the dizzy assembly line up as well, the only thing is that the 2 plugs are...
  4. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    Recently had the idea of making a sleeper and I noticed that 2nd gen Camry's are relatively cheap for what they have and aside from small performance parts I haven't seen and engine modifications. I've heard you can pull parts from other cars like the headers from the 86-89 Celica but I really...
  5. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    Hello! My '92 Holden Apollo is definitely showing signs of needing a head gasket replacement (white smoke, water in tailpipe, slow but noticeable coolant use). What concerns me is what I'll find when I get in there - the car had been sitting for a while (was a grandma's car who could no longer...
  6. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    Hello! I'm doing the timing belt on my new '92 Holden Apollo (weird Aussie badge-engineered SV21) with a 3SFE. I managed to fumble and drop the idler pulley as I was taking it off. Does anyone know if there's supposed to be a washer on the outside (closest to wheel side) of the pulley? I...

    1987 Celica GT, 3SFE 2.0, w/automatic. I"ll get to my point fast, please bare with me... I think my A140L had a catastrophic failure yesterday. When I came off the highway at an exit the car was in overdrive and I let off the accelerator. The transmission/transaxle seemed to drag the car to a...
  8. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    I've always wondered what rpm my 91 Camry sat at while doing highway speeds (65-75mph). I don't have a tach and have not found any other information about it. Would anyone know?

    Hey thanks for the add! I've been a Toyota enthusiast, collector for a quite a while now. have had all sorts of classics but currently loving the 80's models. They don't make em like they used to! I was fortunate enough to come across a sweet camry alltrac and I had to have it. It's got a slight...
  11. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Hello everyone. I realize this post is a bit of an intro in the gen forum, but I’ll be posting all my questions and modifications on a single thread in the future as this car is slightly more particular than some and may require referencing older posts in the future. What is it? 1993 Toyota...
  12. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    Hi everyone, I have an 89 manual Camry wagon with 140k km on the clock, I was topping up oil a couple of times between oil changes (every 5000km's) but not with too much oil. A mechanic acquaintance suggested that the spark plug tubes may need resealing and was probably the cause of the lost...
  13. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    Working on a blown head gasket (lord please let it just be the gasket), I don't have an engine hoist so I'm trying to pull the head off with the intake manifold and fuel rail connected and leaving the engine in the vehicle. This is the first time I've ever done any engine work ever. So far it's...

    Neither can my mechanic. Any suggestions? It's an 89 Celica GT 3S-FE Automatic built in 02/89. I appreciate any help. :)
  15. Celica Forum
    So I have a 89 Celica ST with a blown head gasket. I don't have to much money invested into the car at this point but I don't have a very big budget to work with either. What I'm trying to decide is whether I should get a repair kit and fix the head gasket (never done before) or try to find a...
  16. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    DOING my head in. I have had a 92 sedan and now the 91 wagon do exactly the same thing! Yet my 88 sedan manual I have owned for over 20yrs has NEVER done it. Nor a 89 wagon also series one auto I had prior to these later models. The problem is VERY specific to certain things. 1...
  17. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    Someone please help me out with recognizing which engine this is as the 3SFE and 5SFE looks very similar. The mechanic who replaced the engine says its a 3SFE but to me it just looks like the 5SFE which was there before. I'm new to the forum. Any help would be greatly appreciated :')

    I have a 3SFE 1997 engine. I've installed a Toga HV oil pump. My engine also has an oil cooler. But when I turn on the engine and accelerate it oil starts shooting out of the oil filter. When I remove the filter it has blown out the filters O-ring. I use 5W-30 since I've rolled it of the show...
  19. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    Hey all. I'm getting ready to drop in a 3sfe into my 97 Camry and realized that my engine manual has gone missing (from the last time I did this in another camry). I've done some searching and found a lot of good stuff on here, but not everything and it'd be nice to have all this info in one...
