When was the timing belt last changed? Last tune up? Are you losing
coolant? (Not sure about the power light)

Whens the last time you did any maintenance for it, like a tune up, I
bet never.

Please what do u mean by "Tune up"? I take the car to the mechanic for
general servicing i.e. ( oil drain, change of oil filter etc.) and
thats about it. Is that tune up?

What do I need to do a tune up?

Thanks.

transmission oil.

A Tune up easily gives me 3 mpg better, Plugs, wires, cap, rotor, set
timing, [ the belt stretches, reducing timing, reducing milage-power]
Check o2 sensor, clean throttle body. Gees motors have parts that wear.
Put it on a scope it could even be something serious or just a bad wire.
It amazes me people dont consider tune ups as maintenance.

Thanks Ransley,

Here ( Lagos, Nigeria), Its almost impossible to find a mechanic that
can read technical manuals or one that has a scope. Most mechs here
just learn the trade at the expense of going to school because of lack
of money to go to school. So most of them can't read.

The shops that have the scopes and the people, are very expensive and
its a "status" thing so we are left to use the people that can just do
the job. I post here so that I can get an idea which I can pass on to
them.

Please what is CAP, rotor etc. btw, what exactly does the timing belt
do? What wires do I look out for?

In that case, check out www.turboninjas.com/camry for more information.

A tune up basically is changing out the spark plugs. (I think it's
recommended every 30,000 or 60,000 miles, I forget which.

Also recommended to change are the distributor cap, spark plug wires
(which go from the spark plugs to the distributor cap), distributor
rotor (I'm pretty sure this is the part that spins, distributing the
high voltage to each spark plug as needed - I've never changed this
myself, yet)

Good luck...

Michael

You might want to go here....
http://oregonstate.edu/~tongt/camry/index.html
Download the manual for your car and read it. It is written fairly
simply for a technical manual and I think most people are able to
understand quite a bit. It will be a big help in identifying various
parts as the drawings are comprehensive.
FWIW
YMMV

You might just benefit from plugs, Check the timing, once mine was
retarded 3 degrees and I was loosing 3-4 mpg.
