Yeah thanks!!! Where can I find the water pump weep hole? And what am I looking for on the radiator cap. My radiator was replaced less than six months ago, its brand new. So I am assuming that its not a hose or the radiator cap. Also their is no coolant puddled in my driveway or anywhere that I let the car sit. Is it possible for engine to be burning an entire reservoir of coolant every hour? Or would it only leak out of the water pump when the car is running? Thanks again

I couldn't agree with you more. The car literally cannot get out of it's own way! I have been to the dealer twice and the answer is they cannot do anything until Toyota says to change. I have logged my complaint to Toyota thanks to you and I have also logged a complaint to the NTSB. I made Toyota aware is a potentially life threatening defect and I will hold Toyota responsible.

#5206 of 5279 2003 Toyota Camry window problem
Aug 04, 2006 (4:31 pm)
Hi, everyone. My camry is having some kind of window noise when I close it. It doesn't happen when I open it though. When I looked at the window closely, I saw some scratch that could be taken away if I scratch it off.
I went to some store. They said may be there is something wrong with the window regulator which costs 250 dollars to fix it. My toyota is just 55K. I thought mine will last longer than that. Does anyone have this kind of problem also?
By the way,I usually close the door with window a little bit opened, will that make this happen?

I recently rented a 2007 Camry SE 4-cylinder 5-speed automatic from Budget for a 1,500 mile round trip to NY from IL. The car had just a tad over 8,000 miles on the odometer when I picked up the car from Budget.
I noticed absolutely no driveability problems or hesitation either during the warm-up period from a cold start, or when it was up to full operating temperature. This is was on two-lane roads, interstates, and city driving.
The only problem I did notice - big time - was a problem with the cruise control while driving through hilly terrain in PA. The cruise control was useless. With the cruise control on and cruising with the tach reading around 1,800RPM and negotiating a slight incline on the interstate, the transmission dropped down two gears, and the tach immediately peaked at 5,000RPM.
I have a 4-cylinder with a 4-speed automatic that functions fine through hilly terrain, so Toyota does have a real problem with the cruise control in the 4-cylinder Camry. However, my personal car does not use drive-by-wire technology, rather a mechanical connection from the accelerator to the throttle assembly. Again, I did not experience any hesitation problems, or flat spots, during acceleration at all during the entire 1,500 mile trip. Given the number of complaints of this nature, I wonder why I didn't have the problem on the rental?

Fairly common problem with newer toyotas, apparently.
Check ntsb complaints on 2004 highlanders. Lots of hesitation issues filed with the feds. Who knows what happens then....
I've complained to Toyota to no avail about hesitation issue on Highlander 5 speed. Same kind of issue you describe with Camry. The delay drives me nuts.

Indeed, we are also experiencing erratic behavior with the cruise. This car spends more time at 4,500 rpm and higher than I have ever seen. We live in New Hampshire, and the car downshifts into third on even the slightest grade. All that said, I do not expect a fix for it real soon. The hesitation problem, however, needs attention immediately. It's really risky driving in heavy traffic, or on steep inclines, where I said in my original post, the car simply dies; sometimes stops completely.

Hi Jimmy, have you made any progress on this issue? I just ordered a 2007 LE with manual trannie and now I am scared and wondering if I should cancel the order. Please let me know any updates on this you have. Thanks!
