Engine Performance problem
2000 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 161000 miles
I have a Camry 2000, 4 cyl, and 161000 miles on it. This car is having history of problems in last six months. First engine was choking; I replaced the spark plugs with the NGK form Auto Zone. That worked. Two months later I had oil change and I found car is splashing engine oil inside the compartment. I tried couple of mechanics and got the quote for 750-1000 to repair the problem which includes timing belt, water pump, and some seals. That is first time I lost the MPG drastically. Then I found an auto repair who said that the only problem is with the oil ring and he fixed the problem for 70 bucks. After that my MPG is improved a little but not much. I asked him check for the MPG drop. He checked the air filter, spark plugs, and hoses. He could not find anything wrong. Do you have any idea what could be wrong? I have been reading a lot about distributor cap replacement. But I am not sure if Camry 2000 needs one. Because I am unable to find the part in the market.
have the same problem?
