1992 Toyota Camry

Recommended Posts

I had a check engine light come on a few days ago when I stepped on it to pass a car. It has never missed a beat but the light is on. I brought it in to get it checked and they said its a Code 12. They werent much help after that and said I should bring it into toyota.

The car is a 92 Camry LE with a 2.2 4cyl and about 316,000 miles. Any ideas on this and thanks in advance.

Look for a crack in the coil. Another comon concern is a bad ecm. Basically the ecm is not getting an rpm signal.

I wasn't far off track! I would bet that the coil/distributor would be more likely but you can't rule out anything. If there was no light and then the light came on during a hard accelleration when everything including the ignition system is trying to work at peak output it would make more sense that its in the distributor?

Like I said, anything is possible!

    • If you ever have a hard time controlling temps with that controller you can always switch it out with a Savannah Stoker. https://www.savannahstoker.com/collections/frontpage/products/savannah-stoker-pellet-grill-control-system
    • LOL, you probably have more money into grills and smokers than I do.....
    • Just picked up a camp chef SG the other week pretty stoked about it  
    • I bought a boat before this season the guy I bought it from never transferred it in his name and registration was set to expire.  I had all the registration cards and what not I simply just made my own bill of sale from the "original" owner and scribble his name the best I could from his registration card. The trailer title was easy because the old owner filled out the seller info already and the guy I bought it from never filled out the buyer so I just had to put my info in.   I wasn't about to go track down the original guy when he lived 2 hours away from me. What is the worst that could happen
    • You will probably need that many to make sure you have one that works 😁. The last grill I bought was a top of the line charbroil with the side burner yadda yadda. Nearly $600.  Lasted barely two years with half the burners no longer working right and finally the grates were a rusted mess and it was replaced by a pellet grill. 
    • It's the same form whether the boat is titled or just registered. How long is the boat? 16' or longer or if there was a loan on it when new it would be titled. The form is just the starting point, since Homeland Security took an interest in boat ownership transfers several years ago it is not an easy process.
    • I have had great luck w/ my 3 yr old Big Horn. I have always said that the controller and hopper looked a lot like the Pit Boss       yeah... I'd say you've got options!
    • Actually I got a new 4 burner Char Grill with side burner this spring for up at the camper and a new cheaper 2 burner with side burner a week ago for at home, so alone with the new Char Grill smoker I got last year I have plenty of wienee cookers thanks.  😘
