94 es300 compatible with 99 camry?

Recommended Posts

    Hello, I have a 1994 lexus es300, and it has been very good to me.  However, it probably needs a new transmission (doesnt go into 1st gear for some reason, still drives, just takes 15 seconds or so to get to 20 mph. )  Engine works fine.

Today, while browsing craigslist, I found a 1999 toyota camry for $500 with blown motor.

Is the camry transmission swappable with the es300 transmission?  If not, would the engine be swappable?  What transmissions are swappable, I heard I can swap ones from 1992 through 1996, is that right?

Also, one mechanic swears its an electrical issue, the transmission solenoids have been replaces, the ecm tested fine, and the transmission wiring from the ecm to the harness tested fine, and they believe the transmission wiring harness might be to blame.  Where is the transmission wiring harness located?  (I stopped going to the mechanic because I paid $800 for the solenoid to be replaced, only for the issue to not be resolved, and refund was refused, so now I dont trust mechanics. 

tl, dr; is transmission/motor for 94 es300 and 99 camry swappable?  And where is the transmission wiring harness located on the es300?

Thank you.

Hi NIck...welcome to the Forum

I think it may be a whole load of trouble to swap units with compatible electronics without recoding.

Don't know what other members think...anyone done this swap before?

Cheers  Trevor

      So I recently went out of town and let my cousin drive my car for about 5 days, however when she returned the car to me I noticed the USBs under the arm rest aren't working anymore. I used to always play music via USB (and bluetooth sometimes) and charge at the same time. I've found an alternative to this which was utilizing the cigarette lighter port and buying a USB cigarette lighter device. Im thinking its fuses that went bad or got fried but if anyone knows a fix to the USBs not working that'll help me! Thanks!

      I own a 1999 Lexus ls400. This is my first car that I got from my uncle. It has 400,000+ miles on it, and it’s just generally beat up. 2 weeks ago, the car stopped running. I had just parked it the night before and woke up to have it not even turn over. When I turn the key, I hear a click inside the engine compartment, but that’s it. There’s power to all the lights and everything else turns on. The starter will sometimes actually move as if it wants to turn over, but only for a second or two. Does anyone have any idea as to what’s wrong with it?

      What do you all suggest as the best pure synthetic oil for a 2003 ES 300 with 209,000 miles? Runs perfectly with a very small (weekly drip) using Mobil 1 (5W-20). Also, what filter is recommended. Located in NC Piedmont region. Car is only driven <5000 miles a year.

      Need help locating PCV valve on my 2003 ES300. Photos will be helpful since I want to install a new PCV valve on the car. Any suggestions on parts and removal/install will be appreciated.
