it is the best thing to be sure of your car engine capacity so as to avoid wasting your hard earned money and precious time on unnecessary spare parts.
Few days ago on this forum I inquired about the likelihood of a 97 camry being factory equipped with a 2.0 engine like the 97 avensis & Carina. My mechanic claims that my 97 camry came with this engine. But every other people refuted this, even Siena and GUZZAZZ and other people that respond on nairaland. But Alas! my meco is right.
I decided to Google it by input the car VIN - vehicle identification number in a vin check site. my VIN is 4T1BG28KXWU254186
Result
model year: 1998
trim: xle
engine capacity: 2.0
seat: leather seat with air bags for the front seats
rim: 14"
town of assembly: Georgetown, KY
mpg: 18
Note: the vin is tagged to the engine and also to the gear. it is normally 17 alphanumeric

Aaaaaaaaah!!!!

Where did you get this info from??

97-2001 camry came with 2.2L engines na. Infact, same engine for all four cylinders.

I used the 2001 model so I know what's under the hood. before I bought the 2005 model called big daddy.

Are you sure you are not mixing them up?

Or maybe the site approximated 2.2 to 2.0...

That was my opinion until I Google the vehicle VIN- vehicle number identification.
I observed that a fraction of the 97 camry came with 2.0 engine.
the 2.0 engine is physically similar to the 2.2 but the bore and stroke is different. the 2.0 engine is mainly in the 97 avensis and Carina e.

if your 97 camry came with Toyota 14" rim then it is equipped with 2. 0 engine.
the Carina e was discontinued in 1997 so the surplus engine had to be used for the camry and avensis.

SOME FACTS
(1)start of production for 97 camry is 96 ready for sale by 97 but 98 altima production started 98 and sola by 99. that is 2 years different.

(2)this particular 2.0 was used on 97 Carina e & 98 avensis. so Toyota had need not ship the engine to US. cause the avensis had its US spec.

(3) the 2.0 for 91 or so Camry is quite different from the 97 version.

(3)kindly check out my VIN 4T1BG28KXWU254186 on www.vin-decoder.org OR any other site that will give full detail of a vehicle. you may input your VIN to confirm that the site datas are accurate.

(4)car manufacturers often have the same engine capacity but different configuration depending on the vehicle class i.e , luxury or common man's car.

(5) 2.0 of late 90s will generally be different from that of early 90s in term of configurations, higher torque, higher horsepower, lower fuel consumption, improved ecu etc

(6) just like we have tecno p5 and p5+, tecno h6 and h6+.
it is due to further research.

the picture you post is just the general information. not the particular info for a particular vehicle. IT is the VIN that contains a vehicle unique info. this issue shouldn't have generated any argument. one need to just input his vehicle or any other into a VIN decoder site or application.
(1) I personally have the 97 camry. Have owned several brands and models of vehicles. can identify 80 percent of cars on Nigerian roads by their brand, model years, horsepower, trim, and engine capacity cos I have very keen interest in motoring. Also several applications that gives the data base of all car manufacturer, models years, trims and so forth.
A colleague of mine currently has the 98 model of avensis, we noticed that my 97 camry and his avensis have similar engine. but 2.0 is boldIy emboldened on the avensis. I measured the length, breath and height of both engines and height it is the same . I remembered that my meco said my engine is 2.0. so the research began. later input my VIN 4T1BG28KXWU254186 into www.vin-decoder.org and realized my engine is really 2.0
