Hi Zaken, here is the latest, had my wife take car to Toyota. Service manager said he had to fight with Toyota extended care to warranty the manifold. He then told me the only way they would agree to warranty it is for me to have all the sensors changed which includes 3 sensors even though only 2 of the codes were coming up for Bank 1 sensor 1 and 2. The other one was Bank 2 sensor 1 Fuel ratio. I questioned him on it and he said this is the agreement Toyota told him. Cost for parts and labor $675 minus 10% coupon. Manifold no charge. I told him to go ahead with the job seeing that I now have a 1 year 12,000 miles warranty on the new parts. He tried to discourage me calling back Toyota extended care saying he already did everything he could. I called them anyhow and they had a different story saying they recommended only changing out the sensors that applied to the specific manifold even though they can't cover the sensors under the power -train warranty. Called back dealership and he said "that's not what they told me" Someone is lying and I think it's the serve manager.
I tried to negotiate not to change the Bank 2 sensor which would save me $212.00 and he said he had to check to see if they started taking it out yet. He then said mechanic said sensor looked week and he wouldn't be able to warranty the work if I chose not replace it. For the peace of mind I agreed to have him replace it.
All and all I'm pleased to have the job done to Toyata's specification. I have all the updated parts including the redesign manifold. This would have been close to a $1800 job with out the warranty of the manifold.
Rock auto also agreed to give me credit on the sensors I bought from them. Very nice of them.
I have all the original sensors. As I inspect the Rock auto's sensors they say Denso on them but not Toyota. The old Toyota's sensors say Toyota with there part number on them. I did notice that there was a design difference in the two oxygen sensors. Toyota's had a few small holes in it and the Rock auto had multiple holes up and down. I can't say each sensor is exactly the same/ The fuel ratio's were closer in looks.
This has been a long journey and I hope it's over. I still hate dealing with the dealerships but seeing that they covered more than half the job I'm happy.
Thanks for all your insight and I look forward to continue to gain more wisdom from you in the days to come. You have been a great help! Chuck

#5624 of 5628 2007 Toyota Camry good so far
Aug 30, 2012 (5:53 pm)
I have 74k on my 07 camry I4 with moonroof package . Oil changed every 5k. Had 1 failure. the car seat motor stopped working at 34k miles. fixed under warranty.At 73k needed new rotors and brakes. i have a tow hitch and it has towed some heavy weights a few times and around 1000 pounds for extended time.
Cannot believe the brakes lasted so long. Mine i was the first batch after the hesitation fix , i made sure of it in 07 . great car and many more miles to go.It has become the older vehicle in the family and sees limited usage as my winter commuter when its too cold for the motorcycle. But 4 yrs it carried our family everyday and was our primary vehicle.
#5625 of 5628 interior dome light
Aug 30, 2012 (9:44 pm)
HI I have a 2007 Camry v-6 SE with moonroof. Today I noticed my dome lights in the ceiling in front of moonroof are diming an orange maybe a touch of blue/white. At first I thought it was a reflection, It;s like a glowing sensation. I've checked all switches. The lights work fine when switched to on.
Does anyone know what can be causing this diming glowing.
#5626 of 5628 Re: 07 camry 4cyl engine vibration [blueeyes3151]
Sep 02, 2012 (3:42 pm)
I was having the vibration allso with 70000 miles and it started about a year ago. The dealer keep telling me it was normal for the vibration. I took it to another dealer and he found that the airflow senser was dirty and cleamed it and reset the computor to factory and the vibration went away. Who ever has this problem might have the dealer to check it out. I was also told that you should get an engine check light which I never got.

Also has anyone done there own brakes and found any problems with aditional shims that are requrured?
Thanks for any insight you may have, chuck

I have a 2007 V-6 Camry. I noticed recently wipers were moving very slow. Weather has gotten cold in Chicago. Today Battery light came on. Made it home turned off car and car wont restart.. Just a click...
Took battery to auto zone battery tested good ( meaning cells good) but needs charge.
Auto zone is charging the battery for me and I will pick up tomorrow.
It's seems it might be an alternator problem.
If anyone has any insight on this matter it would be much appreciated.
Thank you, chuck
