The Toyota Camry’s one distinguishing maintenance characteristic is that you may use a specific automatic transmission fluid in the power steering fluid reservoir, which for many vehicles isn’t recommended. These steps apply specifically to the 1996 and onward models of the Toyota Camry, and are a general reference for other model years.
