Default New Camry owner, saying hi

Hi all. Just thought I'd introduce myself to the group as the newest
member of the club, since I may be bothering you all with various
issues with my new (used) '98 Camry 2.2L. But if all goes to plan,
nothing will go wrong with it and I'll be a total stranger. Right?

So, hi! Anything I need to know about my new ride?

I would, but after I got that e-mail from "paypal@yahoo.com" asking me
to go to their website and verify my address and password, I strangely
haven't been able to get into my account. I'm sure they'll sort it
out soon.

It's OK, I had Subway for lunch today.

Just a few things to look for:

1) Do you hear a rattling in the front suspension, especially when the car
is cold?

2) alignment problems?

3) The world's softest suspension that bottoms out even if you fart?

Best way to keep your Camry running a long time is to keep the fluids
clean.
Look under the hood. Coolant recovery tank fluid should be light red.
Brake fluid amber. Put a drop of transmission fluid on a white paper
towel, should be light red. Same with power steering fluid. Oil
changes 5,000 miles or less.
Even if you neglect maintenance, Camrys last a long time, but if you
change the timing belt and spark plugs when due, and keep the fluids
clean, that 2.2L will run practically forever.
The Haynes maintenance and repair manual for under $20 will show the
location of all the fluid reservoirs.

I second what the last poster said. The
key to long life Camrys is good maintenance. My 1997 Camry has
169,000 miles on it so far with only one
real repair of the power steering rack.
It was leaking.
