Engine Toyota 5S under the hood

Engine Toyota 5S

The most “voluminous” in the series is the 5S engine with a displacement of 2.2 liters. Originally developed for the US-European CAMRY model, it entered the domestic Japanese market in 1993, along with the SCEPTER model (which was essentially the US-European CAMRY). Later, this engine was installed on the now common for all markets CAMRY / CAMRY GRACIA in the back of SXV20 (model of 1997), which was recently discontinued. The 5S had a moderate power output of 140 hp at 5600 rpm.

Frequent problems

    Engine Toyota 5S

  1. Termination of the injection pump. As a rule, it is accompanied by the penetration of gasoline into the crankcase system and increased laxity of the ShPG. It is detected by an increase in the oil level, which also acquires a characteristic gasoline smell. The car twitches on the move, the speed floats, the engine often stalls. Change injection pump urgently.
  2. The EGR secondary gas recirculation valve is stuck. The reason is poor gasoline and tar formation. Primary symptoms are swimming revs, interruptions in the rhythm of the motor. The valve needs to be cleaned or muffled.
  3. Falling turnover. Accompanied by frequent shutdown of the unit. Flushing of the throttle-valve compartment and the manifold at the inlet is required. In addition, the fuel pump may be broken and the air filter dirty.
  4. Heavy burnout of gasoline. It is necessary to adjust the ignition system, as well as clean the injectors, the idle valve and the BDZ.
  5. Vibrations. It is necessary to change the aggregate pillow. Perhaps some cylinder is not working.
  6. Temperature rise. The radiator cap needs to be replaced.

5S is a stable, durable (over 300 thousand km) and dynamic engine if you take good care of it.
