Hi, welcome to CarSpace!
That post was made quite a while back. Why don't you let us know what's on your mind? We'll try to help!

I don't really need any help with my car at this time. I just wanted to post an answer to the person that had the leaky trunk in case he was still dealing with it. I have owned many Camrys, but I just bought the first Avalon about a month ago. It seems to be a pretty good car now that the check engine light is off for a knock sensor problem and the trunk leak is fixed. Thanks

Thank you for the help! Your thoughts will be helpful to someone, perhaps many people, and we appreciate it very much.
I was actually asking the person who posted after you what we could do to help him since he didn't really say, but I'm glad to see that you are still around. You might enjoy some of our other discussions in the Avalon group as well.

I'm Jim and I'm looking at buying a '97 Avalon up here in Canada with 108,000 km.on it(about 70,000 miles).Just wondered what mpg you got from your '96 Avalon. Haven't had any experience with this make or model but always admired their style and of course their reputation for reliability.Wondering if there are any quirks to the car but primarily what mileage per gallon I might expect.

I just took a 900 mile road trip with my 96 Avalon. I got 26 mpg on one leg of the trip and 27 mpg on another leg. There were some hills, but mostly flat land. I had the curise control set between 65 and 75mph depending on the speed limit I was in. It gets about 23 mpg around town and rural type driving. Thanks, Dana
#151 of 154 2007 Avalon Engine Noise
Feb 28, 2013 (3:38 pm)
My 2007 Avalon Limited is making a lot of valve noise at idle that was there when I first bought the car used two years ago but is getting much worse. I have 111,000 total miles on it and am wondering if this is to be expected. It's noisier than any other Toyota that I have owned with the V-6 engine. (T100' Three Siennas, and an FJ Cruiser.

Some of this noise can be fuel injectors, especially at cold start-up. I notice the fuel injector "click" a lot of the time on first start-up of my 2007. It generally goes away as the engine warms up.

The noise doesn't change with warm up. It's consistent whenever the engine is running and varies directly with rpm.

Sounds like your diagnosis is correct. I haven't heard anything like that from my 2007, but it only has about 1/2 the miles.
