We own a '94 Toyota Camry LE V6 which we originally bought from an elderly couple when we lived in Honolulu, HI and have since shipped it to Portland where we now reside for the past 3 years. Our car has a total of 94K miles with very light use. This is our one and only car. We hope to keep it for many more years. Please help us.
Car problem: Our car check engine light came on and soon after the O/D light flashes. Each time it flash the tachometer would rev up and down while driving. The rev is not excessive but very noticeable and I worry it may cause further damage. We took our car to a local auto shop which was recommended from the Car Talk web page. The mechanic name John diagnosed our engine problem and return two codes, which he say requires the vehicle speed sensor and output shaft sensor to be replace. He also recommended change of transmission fluid, differential fluid, 2 valve cover gaskets, a motor mount and 6 Denso plugs. After we paid a substantial bill, we are still having the same problem. Today will be the third time I'm taking my car back to the same shop to have the problem look into since our initial appointment in the past week for the same problem. I'm quite puzzle at this point and reaching out to you for help. Please, please advice...your help would greatly be appreciated in this tough economy.
Note: I don't know if this would help you diagnosed my problem, but I have engaged the car PWR button (ECT) recently during my driving and the O/D light will not flash while the PWR is set to on. Although, the check engine light is still on.
