Something to keep in mind. The only transmissions that are bulletproof in the 3-4th gens are the 5 speed ones for the V6. Since it's your daily, is it a requirement of yours to have it automatic transmission?
^Ah, gotcha! Those manual transmissions are so rare they don't pop into my mind. Just for amusement, once a month or so I use searchtempest.com to look for Camrys on Craiglists within a 200 mile radius of me. I see about 6 manuals a year.
Thread hijack: the E53 used in the '92~'93 MT V6 Camrys (note MT wasn't available for '94~'96 V6, and so the E153 wasn't used in the V6 Camry until the Gen4 in '97), anyone know of a good shop to have one rebuilt?
I have one with 200k miles on it, ran fine, but am restoring the car and haven't been able to find someone trustworthy to rebuild it for me. I may simply replace the exterior seals and try for another 200k, but since the topic went this way I thought I'd ask if you had any advice.
Yes, it is stock, holds 4.5liters (enough for a 3.8liter/gallon jug of WW fluid, so you don't have a half full jug rolling around in the trunk).
It is, however, preternaturally clean in that photo, which does make it look extra large for some reason.
Note the ones with ABS lost some of that volume to make room for the unit.
Thanks again for all of the input! I ended up a purchasing the white Sedan I posted earlier. I'm now the proud owner of a great condition 96' Toyota Camry LE. The owner ended up being a Los Angeles CHP officer all people. Really nice guy, he mentioned he owned it for a little less than a year. He bought it off a family friend that retired and moved to Florida. This thing is mint, considering its age. It's pretty much a time capsule. I posted some pics of the car after I gave it a quick wash and spray wax. I'll post pictures of the interior when I get it cleaned up. The previous owner had these things done to it and had receipts to back it up; (New Radiator, New Tires, New Brakes, Alignment and oil change.tune up). Ended up paying $2,250 for her :grin: included the original manual and a hand written notebook with all of it's maintenance done since 2010 haha!
Timing Belt Belt and Water Pump were done at 158,000 miles. Currently has 170,000
Hi - I recently purchased a '93 Camry LE 2.2L 4cyl Sedan with 200,000mi for my younger brother to commute to college four days a week. The engine seems to be running great and the car is in decent condition other than the rear end struts are completely shot, making lots of noise and the car...
