1990 Toyota Camry 2.0 from North America
I would buy another one, when this one finally wears out
Slow-dripping engine oil leak into distributor, when the engine is hot, from where the distributor housing and the engine share a common wall. So, I don't lose oil while I'm driving, but I have to put a drip pan under the front of the car while it's parked, or I'll get an oil-leak spot on my garage floor. My mechanic says that this is a common problem that he has observed in other 1990-93 Camry models. He "fixed" it by drilling a hole in the side of the distributor housing so that the oil could leak out and drip under the car, and not disturb the electrical distribution. I have to add a quart of oil every 6 weeks. My mechanic said that I could get a used distributor housing from used-car-parts yards, but then, those might be liable to develop that oil-leaking hole, too.
The only other problem has been that during heavy rains, there's a leak into the trunk. I fixed that with a tube of rubber gasket sealer.
I am the original owner. I bought the car in late 1990 to carry my wife and newborn son in his child car seat. My son is now 17, 6'2", and fills the back seat. It is still my primary car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
