I am curious to know if you have had to replace a 2nd or 3rd ignition coil yet...as I've just had my 2nd one replaced...probably about a month after the 1st one went bad. I am pretty upset about it... as my 2007 Camry LE only has about 40k and my husband is threatening to now trade it in. I currently own 3 Toyota's and my previous Camry lasted a very long time so I bought another. I am very concerned that the quality may be slipping. Let me know how yours is doing as I am curious if this is an issue with the cars we purchased or just a fluke. (I am hoping) Thx

HI, so far I have not had to replace another coil. DO you have a 4 or 6 cylinder. I have a v-6. I think it is unusual for these coils to go bad on any car with low mileage. I am not happy about at all and I too believe the Toyota quality has slipped big time. I was able to replace the coil myself . The part cost me $90 The front coils are a 5 minute job though Toyota wanted $300 for parts and labor.
I would also let Toyota know about your problem. Maybe they will have a recall one day.
Keep me updated, thanks

I have never replaced a coil, (or any electronic device), on my 07 V6 XLE Camry, and this vehicle now has almost 64,000 miles. ------ Outside of the "oil line," my vehicle has been "trouble free" since I took delivery, and this line was replaced BEFORE it stated to leak! --------- (Maybe I was just lucky!) ----- I think the Camry is a high quality product.
Best regards. ---------- Dwayne

I am having that problem now with my 07 Toyota Camry....have already replaced 2 of the ignition coils AND all spark plugs....what was your "fix" after all said and done?

Hi, Can anyone tell me how much distance is normal between the rear tire and the struts. The round plate or spring that is over the tire has only a half inch between the tire and plate. The fronts have more space. Are my struts worn out?
I have 48,000 miles on 2007 v-6 SE Camry
Thanks for any help, chuck
#5368 of 5646 A/C blows hot after a minute or two - '95 Camry
Apr 01, 2011 (7:06 pm)
I took it to the mechanic before it got hot enough to need the A/C. He says it has a full charge of refrigerant, and it never quit blowing really cold the whole time he burned up a lot of gas, idling it to see if it would quit.
Last year, it would blow hot intermittently; now, it only blows cold for a minute or two after I start the cold engine, and blows hot the rest of the day while I keep driving around. It appears that if I let the engine cool down enough, then it will blow cold for a minute, then hot. It's only been hot outside the last couple of days, though.
I have fixed a lot of things on cars, but know nothing at all about A/C...
any ideas for me?

well, I guess I posted under a different topic. I can't make any sense of this forum, can't figure out how to make a post...

Apr 02, 2011 (3:03 pm)
First, I appreciate your (detailed) response to my initial question to the Forum regarding Toyota's use of BG Service. It appears though, that the earlier (on-going) discussions on oil additives have somewhat distorted my original question. I will now endeavor to clarify that request for the Forum:
The BG Service I am referring to is NOT an oil additive; the BG servicing kit, and product, consists mostly of two (2) canisters. The BG SERVICE is administered by a trained technician and is applied to 1.) The automatic transmission, 2.) The Cooling System, 3.) The Hydraulic Brake System, 4.) The Power Steering System; the product is introduced into a pumping and evacuation machine and, under careful supervision, evacuates the existing fluid while introducing, under pressure, the new BG fluid along with the appropriate conditioners, anti-corrosive components, and the like, depending on the system being serviced. A Sight-Gauge and Pressure Indicator in PSI is monitored by the technician during this operation.
I've already had both the cooling system and trans serviced on my Mazda
Tribute using the BG System and product. I am now questioning the Forum to determine if other members have encountered any Toyota Dealerships stating that they (the Dealership) no longer offer this (BG) SERVICE.
Hopefully, this new discussion has served to clarify my original question. Again, I look forward to any further input from the Forum.

Hey; it's OK. You didn't post under a different topic; you posted in this thread. The confusing thing about this forum is that it often places new posts on the page that comes after the one that was visible when you originally posted the message; so if you go back to the page where you started; it may look like your post is not there. If you are trying to find a post that you made within the last week; the easiest thing to do is to start at the last page in the forum you're using; and search all the posts on that page. If the post is not on that page; try looking through the page before that one. The list of all the page numbers in a given forum will appear at the top of each page.
You can start a new message by clicking the "post new message" button at the top of the page; or you can reply to an existing message by clicking the "reply" button on the top right of that message. And you can navigate back from a reply to the original message by clicking the link on the line that begins with "replying to" which is located just below the date and time of the original message.
#5372 of 5646 2007 Camry A/C won't start
Apr 19, 2011 (8:42 am)
I just noticed the a/c on my 2007 V6 LE won't cool. The light on the dash comes on but there is no sign of compressor activity.The relay seems to work when tested on the bench but there doesn't seem to be power heading to the relay from the controls. Also, when I bypass the relay, the compressor clicks but doesn't sound like it is starting. I'm thinking possible freon leak or possibly seized compressor. All of which sounds pricey for a 4 yr old car from Toyota. Anybody have experience with this? Thanks.
