1992 Toyota Camry XLE Major Maintenance!

Out of break down more like it!

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


Timing Belt Stretched:


Towing to my good Friend Mechanic:




Water Pump Replacement: (Note that tiny screw at the upper Left Corner!)


Needed to be carefully chiseled Out!!!


Water Pump (Engine Side) Mating surface all cleaned!




New Thermostat Replacement:


New Water Pump Installed and Timing Belt Tensioner and Tensioner Pully!


Crankshaft Seal Replacement:




Old Fuel Pump after 417,000 miles!!!!






New Fuel Pump:








My good friend Pete!


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!
