I have a 2007 camry CE ,2.4 L engine with 35 K miles . Toyota maintenance schedule did not have a reference as to at what mileage fuel filter should be changed .I would like to hear from members about the location of the filter and what kind of tool is required (open wrench , clamps, special fuel-filter release tools,etc). Thank you

I have a 2007 LE, with almost 60K miles, and haven't changed it. As a matter of fact, I've NEVER had to change any fuel filter in any of my vehicles with over a million miles of travel.
I just did a real quick scan of the 'fuel' section of the factory manuals, and didn't even see a fuel filter. I'm guessing it's either internal to the pump (in the tank), or perhaps it's down under the vehicle just in front of the tank on the frame area.

Thanks for your response . I am new to Toyota maintenance . My other vehicles (like Ford trucks) indeed have replaceable fuel filters and factory recommended interval is 30K .
If your factory manual did not show it , may be that explains why toyota maintenance schedule did not include it (which I tought very odd ).
One less thing to deal with.

I am having a problem with my o3 Camry v6 xle which has 118,500 miles. The VSC and traf lites stays lighted on the dash board. When the car is started it initially goes off and then comes on and stays on. Does anyone know how to fix the problem. My brother said going to a dealer and they will take you to the cleaners.

My mother had a problem with her heater, and she brought it to the dealer, which they replace the the toyota replace the water pump. I drove the car and I notice that while the fan selector is set at off and the e car is in motion, air still comes through the vents. The service manager is claiming that you need to have the have the air intake selector pressed on to recirculate, which closes the vents. When I questioned this, he claims this is how the camry works, and that his wifes presses the recirculate button to prevent the air from coming in. I find this hard to believe that when you start the car, that you need to go through another step of pressing the recirculate button to prevent the air from blowing on you. Has anybody ever heard such a thing.

Yes, this is common. This is to prevent people from leaving it on recirculate all the time. Leaving it on recirculate too long can, depending on the weather conditions, cause your windows to fog over, so this is an intentional design to make the setting "fool-proof."
When the car is on, you can press and hold the recirculate buttom for 5 seconds to get the recirculate to stay on for as long as you like until you shut the car off, or turn the vent controls to one of the defrost modes.

#5313 of 5338 2007 Camry water pump - BEWARE!
Jun 11, 2012 (7:28 am)
I have a 2007 Camry (6 cyl) which I had taken to the dealer for an oil change. They advised that the water pump was leaking and had to be replaced. I only have 39K miles on the car.
Here is the problem - they have to pull the engine in order to replace the water pump which is 16 hours labor. The total cost is $2,000.
Anyone else have this experience?
What a terrible design! This is my first and last Toyota. Beware!

Do you have an "extended Toyota Warranty on this vehicle? ---- Did you purchase this vehicle new? ---- Has this vehicle been sitting in "storage" for any great length of time, without the engine running periodically? ---- I have a 2007 Toyota XLE V6 Camry with 80,000 miles, and it still has the original water pump! --- I drive this vehicle at least three times a week along with my other vehicle. ---- My extended warranty runs until January 2013. ---- I am going to have the dealer drain and refill the cooling system with new Toyota Coolant! ---- I am planning to keep this vehicle past the extended warranty. ----- The reason being, that I have not found a new vehicle that I would like to own! ----- So I guess if my water pump starts to leak at 100,000 miles, I will have to pay the $2,000.00 for the repair! ---- But it is still "cheaper" than purchasing a "new car!" ------- If I purchased a new Camry, I would have to come up with at least $20,000.00 plus my trade! ----- At $2000.00 for each water pump, I could have ten water pumps installed by the dealer to spend $20,000.00! ---- With your low mileage, you have an "issue" with Toyota. --- Do you service your Camry at the dealership? ---- Do you have a "professional working relationship" with the service manager? ----- Maybe they can work with YOU and TOYOTA to split the bill!
