#4194 of 5279 2001 Camry Solara engine/transmission problem
Nov 08, 2005 (2:06 pm)
My mother owns a 2001 Toyota Camry Solara. Her car is an automatic and only has about 47000 miles on it. For some reason while going slow or at a stand still, her car will buckle and shake, then cut out. She has spent loads of money with the Toyota Dealership and other auto mechanics that can't figure out the problem. What's worst about this is that she is terrified to drive it and it is leased. Does anybody have the same car and is experiencing the problem? Does anybody know what to do in this situation? Does anybody have a general idea about what the problem may be? Help!!!

...when the GM loyalists/lurkers come in here and crow about a Toyota recall that doesn't even affect models sold in North America? Meanwhile, GM market share in the US continues to plummet.

I saw your notice does your mother only drive around town and does the car every get a good hard run at 65mph for at least 20 miles per month. I am going towards maybe a build up of carbon in the engine from only town driving if this is all the car get to do. Lucas has a fuel injector cleaner you can buy at most auto stores such as pep boys or what ever store is in your neighbor hood . I recommend a good shot of lucas fuel injection cleaner and take the car out on a good 50-100 mile drive and clean out the injector s. This might help if there is carbon in the engine from running around town if the car does get a lot of highway mileage go ahead and use the Lucas injection cleaner it keeps the fuel system nice and clean. Hope this helps?????

I understand that some Camry owners have had more than their share of problems and sympathize.
My 2003 Camry XLE (4 cylinder 4 speed automatic) has been an absolute gem. I have had it almost three years, but never got around to accurately checking the gas mileage.
A recent trip (80% highway, 20% city) returned an overall mileage of 39.7 mpg (Canadian gallon), or about 32 mpg per U.S. gallon. On the highway, cruise control was set at 110 kph (about 69 mph).
This car, made in Japan, has had no rattles,no maintenance issues...just regular oil, filter,and coolant changes.
I hope my good fortune continues...am also very pleased with the Toyota dealer who does all the servicing.
My guess is that the majority of Camry owners (by far), have similar good feelings about their purchase.
