Engine Performance problem
1996 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 149000 miles
I have a 96 model camry that I bought when it had 96K miles on it. Now it has 149K. Sad but true, I have never serviced it. After four years of just pouring gas and timely oil change, my oldie has now started giving problems.
It tends to stall at signal. To stop it from not doing I have to put extra pressure on the gas pedal. When I park it and change the gear to " P" , engine suddenly revs upto 2500 rpm. I cant see it crying so loud so I turn I off.
Well, I see that this website has lot of experts. Do you think I should go for a repair or simply see the slow death. If I go for repair, what should I be telling to the mechanic because I dont want a grocery list of items. I know it is a old vehicle and might be having 1000 of old parts in it. I want to fix only the part that will fix this problem. Everything else works great in the vehicle.
