Questions About 1986 Toyota Camry Engines

  • Why does the check engine light come on when I start my Camry? It's okay if your check engine light comes on when you first start your vehicle. It’s just your Camry firing up its circuits. The light should go off shortly. Bring your vehicle in if it doesn't.
  • Why does my Toyota engine sound different? Strange under-the-hood noises can point to problems within your Toyota Camry engine. Tapping or knocking could mean you need an oil change. Whistling sounds could mean you have an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing can indicate a loose fan belt, and grinding could be a sign that something is wrong with your brakes — not the engine.
  • What could damage my Toyota Camry engine? Certain driving habits can hurt your engine. These habits include driving on an empty fuel tank, revving the engine while still in Park, or pushing 'the pedal to the metal' before the engine has warmed up. Protect your engine’s performance and efficiency by distancing yourself from these habits.
  • Can I add water to my Toyota Camry radiator? It’s not recommended you put water in your Camry radiator unless it’s an emergency. Under normal circumstances, use a 50/50 mix of water and coolant or a pre-mixed coolant. But, if you need to keep driving while out of coolant, using water is better than driving with an empty coolant reservoir.
