1992 Toyota Camry XLE Major Maintenance!
 
Out of break down more like it! :eek:

After 417,000 miles the original Fuel Pump in the Gas tank finally gave out. I am experienced with my car for over 20 years but, this one really left me scratching my head. I checked all Fuses, including the AM2 that is the Ignition and Fuel pump and even replaced the entire Distributor (Cap & Rotor had been replaced recently) and nothing, it just did not want to crank up.

Well, it appeared that the Engine experienced some sort of high back-fire explosions internally due to the Fuel Pump operating in a irregular manner and caused the timing belt to stretch (after trying to start the Engine so many times.)

Here is today's mileage: FYI...ENGINE HAS NOT BEEN REBUILT

Needless to say that after perhaps equivalent to one modern car payment my 1992 Camry XLE continues to run down the road and much better now!:D
