Question about 1996 Toyota Camry

Open Question

My 96 Camry V6 now has a knock in the top of the engine it is in the very front right corner of the engine, the puzzling thing is there is no knock when idling or at high RPMs its just there when its at about 1000 RPMs if it was a push rod or lifter won't it be there all the time?

You maybe need to adjust the idle speed, on top of the intake manifold, near where it says EFI, there a small black rubber plug, pull it out, turn off everything in the car, then turn the screw in where the plug was to change the idle speed. Or it could be that you need a new Idle Control Valve

SOURCE: 1990 Toyota Celica GTS. Idle races too high

sound very much like a vacuum leak.... also maybe your timing is off? possibly advanced? try retarding it with the distributor if thats the case...

SOURCE: idles to high

You may need an Idle Air Control Valve (a common problem), I would also change the thermostat as well. If its reading cold it will cause the car to idle high.

SOURCE: 1993 Toyota Camry V6 Timing Settings

Get a T belt from toyota. It has 3 white lines on it and and arrow mark. 2 lines are solid and one is broken. Put the arrow facing away from the engine. The cam gears have a dot punched into them near a certain tooth. This is where the solid white lines will line up with. The crank gear will have a dot also. It will line up at 90 degrees from the top, towards the front of the car. This is where the broken line will match up with. With the belt installed with all lines on their proper dots and arrow away from the engine, you valve timming is correct.
Of course you need to remove and compress the tensioner also. I assume you know this already since you didn't ask.

Where is the knock sensor for my 96 isuzu rodeo v6


YAEEH (yet another easter egg hunt)
why do you ask. scan it and it has DTC for knock? nah, bet not.
be best to scan it, no?

usa RODEO.
GM V6 engine with their own 3.2-liter 24-valve SOHC V6
LG6 , i think ended in 1992.
or
3.2 L 6VD1/6VD1W V6 (bingo)?

YAEEH
ill toss coin, land on 6vd1

some dont have a knock sensor. the 2.6L does.
the 1998 6vd1 has one, but not 96, in usa.


I even looked at your ECU/CPM schematic,
for the V6, and it shows, no knock sensor,(usa spec car)
The EFI spark system used on your car dictates this.
as knock (KS) controls spark timing, (retards it at knock)
but some versions have no KS sensor.

if fitted its on the block top.
has 1 wire. and screws in on a simple stud .
some are under intake manifold
its just a threaded shallow hole in block,
its only a microphone device.
here is the block a real photo.
some have it , others, dont
and one more fact, it came 92 and went and came.98
facts.

clear? see red circle below?

97 toyota camry has almost no engine power, immense jerky shaking, knocking noise, burning corky smell, dies after a few minutes of running!! please help


It sounds like the cataltic converter is pluged and it is giving you fits this is a common problem due to all fuel contaning ethonal. Try taking the exaust apart before the cataltic converter. On the 4 cylinders it is that big can looking thing in front of the motor by the oil dip stick and the oil filter. On the V6 take it apart right after the front pipe and the rear pipe come together. If this is the problem the car will run but it will be a whole lot louder that normal. If this fixes it take it to an exaust shop and ask them to replace the converter.

How do I replace a knock sensor for a 1992 toyota camry v6 le


First, I would like to mention that most knock sensor codes are not caused by the knock sensors, but a mechanical problem with the engine. The knock sensors cannot differentiate between noises caused by mechanical problems like a bad pulley bearing, bad motor mount, noisy alternator bearings, etc. and spark knock. knock sensor codes are set when the computer has retarded the timing as far as possible to compensate for ignition ping (Spark Knock) and the noise still exists.

With that said, here are the instructions.

Remove the Intake Chamber assembly.
Disconnect Injector connectors.
Disconnect the heater hose from the Intake Manifold.
Remove the 9 bolts. 2 nuts, 2 plate washers and Intake Manifold assembly.
Remove right hand engine mounting stay and water outlet.
Disconnect the following hoses and connectors:
Radiator inlet hose.
Engine coolant reservoir hose.
Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor connector.
Engine Coolant Temperature Switch connector.
Ground strap connector.

Remove the 3 bolts and right hand mounting stay.
Remove the wire band.
Disconnect the water bypass hose from the inlet housing.
Remove the 2 bolts, 2 nuts, 2 plate washers and water outlet.
Remove the 2 gaskets.
Disconnect the Knock Sensor connectors.
Remove the Knock Sensors.

Toyota Camry Knock Sensor Problem The top of the radiator on my 1993 3.0 lt Toyota Camry V6, 3VZ FE engine split some months back and it overheated. I have since sorted out the head gaskets and it seems to...


Hello. You have posted an excellent question.

The code 55 you are getting, in Toyota terms, as as follows:

"No number one knock sensor signal to the ECU fo four crank revulutions under these 2 conditions: Coolant temperature 140 degrees F or more; Engine speed between 1600 and 5200 RPM."

This indicates a failed (or a loose) knock sensor on the Right Bank of the engine. Since the knock sensor is basically a piezo-electric crystal, not continuity test can be performed with the intake manifold installed.

You can check the continuity form the Knock Sensor wires to the ECM, but, this may not prove useful to you.

Unfortunately, you are going to have to pull the intake, and check the knock sensor wiring integrity. If the connector is good, and the sensor is tight, I would suggest replacing the sensor. Actually, if you were in my shop, I would suggest replacing them both, as the whole intake will have to come off if the other sensor fails. Better to replace them both at once, than to pull the intake again.

We here at FixYa hope that this helps you out, and saves you some future reoair dollars. Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice.
