Reliability Rating for 1997 Toyota Camry by Identifix

Ratings Key Minimal Problems Moderate Problems Significant Problems
  Rating Comments
Engine Occasional problems on this vehicle are failures of the Engine, the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Lift Sensor (3.0L engine only) and the Air Fuel Ratio Sensor (2.2L engine only) for California specification vehicles. Failure of the Engine is caused because the engine oil gels. Engine oil gelling will also cause excessive engine oil usage. When proper maintenance schedules for oil changes are followed, oil gelling should not occur. Toyota has issued an 8 year unlimited mileage goodwill repair for this condition. Failure of the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Lift Sensor or the Air Fuel Ratio Sensor will cause a drivability problem or the check engine light to illuminate.

The cost to repair the Engine is estimated at $4500.00 for parts and $1384.50 for labor. The cost to repair the EGR Lift Sensor is estimated at $33.12 for parts and $65.00 for labor. The cost to repair the Air Fuel Ratio Sensor is estimated at $219.01 for parts and $39.00 for labor. All prices are estimates based on $65 per flat rate hour and do not include diagnostic time or any applicable sales tax.
