93 Camry buying tips?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

Im about to buy another car, and I have decided on a Camry :)

My friend is selling a 1993 Camry, not sure exactly what model, but I was just wondering if there is anything in particular I should look for when I check it out in a few days.

Any help would be appreciated.

Checks for oil leaks, especially from the main seals, no doubt there will be a bit of seepage, but just make sure it’s not too much more than that.

Normally the worst thing that can happen for these engines are the main seals in the engine... then you'll have the engine mounts go. I've had to replace engine mounts in my 94 4 banger and my 95 V6 within the last couple of years (a V6 mount was only replaced yesterday).

Other than that, maybe the ceiling lining and door trim will start to peel off... not much else really. Just like any car, if they've been serviced when they're meant to be, there's no reason why you'd have a problem mate.
