Engine Mechanical problem
1990 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 175000 miles
When my car is warmed up, particularly accelerating from a light, there is a pinging/tapping sound. It sounds like a problem. I took it into a Toyota dealer and they diagnosed it as: "Either two option. 1. Excessive carbon build up on top of pistons 2. Piston slap inside of combustion chamber" I have been told the prognosis is maybe a few months. The noise is getting worse. My question for you is: Is the only option to get a new/rebuilt engine? And how long can it last before it goes?
have the same problem?
