#3507 of 5279 1995 Camry Coolant Leak Update
Jun 21, 2005 (10:44 am)
So like everyone knows I went yesterday at 6pm to get my car. Everything is great it is running fine. But today I decided to take a look under the hood and get a closer look at what the mechanic did. The top of the new radiator looks brand new, as far as the plastic goes. Also the radiator cap is new, but what worries me is that I when I looked at the fins on the front of the new radiator I noticed that some where slightly bent and some with a little rust on them, it looked dirt and used is what I am trying to say. This cant be possible after driving it maybe ten miles home since yesterday. Is it possible that my old radiator was repaired??? Or did I get a remanufactured one??? I guess the point is that the leak is gone, but did I pay 277 for a Toyota OEM radiator and get a remanufactured one??? What do yall think? "HAPPY MOTORING"

You probably were priced a new one and got a remanufactured or repaired radiator. If you question it, they will probably try to say you were given the price for a rebuilt or the new ones have dented fins.
I was given a rechromed rear bumper for a repair on a car once when the insurance estimate was for a new one. I had the dealer replace it with what I paid for. The owner of the Ford dealership was nasty.

Update: I got a schematic for the car, and I was able to check that 1) the motor works and 2) the switch works. But the switch does not seem to be getting power. Power is supplied from what on the schematic is called the "Power Main Relay." Unfortunately, the CDROM I have does not show where that is located. Is this the same thing as the "Engine Main Relay"? Does anyone know exactly *where* the relay is located? Any help would be appreciated.

Is it worth putting up a stink at the garage? I want to get what I paid for!!!! I might not get 100K outta a rebuilt radiator. Either way my baby is better so I'm not to pissed.

I have a Toyota Camry LE 2001. Recently, I have been having similar problems with my power windows. The passenger side windows (both) can be scrolled down but does not scroll up. They go up partly after sometime...about 1 inch every 5-10 minutes. I initially thought that the battery may need replacement and changed one recently but that has not corrected the problem. It is soooo annoying...
Appreciate if anyone knows why this happens...

This is pretty indicitave of a worn or almost worn out window motor. You could take the door apart and try lubricating the moving parts to see if it's just gummed up with dirt, etc., but in all liklihood you'll have to replace the window motors to get them working again.
#3513 of 5279 96 Camry - P0441 -sensor and Emissions Warranty Enchancement
Jun 23, 2005 (6:49 am)
My engine light is on - and my code is P0441 - Evap emission control purge flow low - does anyone know if this will be covered under the 1996 through 1998 Model Year Federal Emissions Warranty Enhancement before I have to take it to the dealer and pay $100 for them to look at it?
Has anyone ever been covered undered this Emissions Warranty Enhancement for repairs? Knowing that you have to get the problem checked out at a Toyota Dealer ($100.00) before they tell you whether it is covered under the warranty.
I just had the tranmission rebuilt $1400.00 and now this engine light shows up. I'm getting ready to put it up for sale by owner. It has 119K miles and one owner me! So I need to hurry up and get it ready for selling so I can buy my new car. I've had it with this camry.

I recently purchased a 2005 Camry LE after driving a 2000 Camry CE for 5 years.
As I drove it for a few days I began to realize that the feel of the drive is totally different from the '00 model. Although both are 4-cyl., the new one is not smooth in its gear transition and is somewhat noisy in achieving 35 mph. The gas pedal has a
"trigger" touch that kind of pushes unsmoothly.
I had a different dealer check it to make sure it wasn't a single-car issue, and was told it drove as it was supposed to. I'm really not enjoying in-city driving.
Anyone out there know what I'm talking about?
Did Toyota alter the transmission somewhere between '00 and '05?

Jun 23, 2005 (7:23 am)
Two things changed from your '00 to the '05 that you test drove. In addition to the numerous other changes. The first is that the transmission is a 5sp automatic rather than the 4sp you have. Secondly, the car uses a throttle-by-wire system, so there is no throttle wire. So combined with a more powerful engine and different gearing added to the throttle by wire system, you may find it is a bit more touchy or as others may say more responsive. Just your perspective when making the comparison.
Hope this helps.

I have a 96 Camry and my power lock switch on my driver side door stopped unlocking as well. I have not looked into the repair as I am about to sell it as is after I get the engine light off.
