#185 of 318 02 Camry SE Catalytic converter V6
Mar 21, 2007 (9:57 pm)
My check engine light came on,..I called Toyota. Then it went off. 2 days later. I brought the car in. They claim it needs a Catalytic converter. ($1,250.00) parts and labor. I worked on cars for 8yrs. 1983-1991. I know cars are different. But my first thought was O2 sensor. I can drive the car, but it will not pass inspection (they say). Anyone with the same problem? let me know...oh yea 93,000 miles on the car..

I worked on cars,.. before computers. But I NEVER heard of Anything with Anti-freeze causing hesitation!! I realized the longer I got away from the car repair service, the worse that field got. I don't trust anyone any more. It's sad because many of them are friends of mine. Well, that's what I thought. My 02 camry was hesitating. Long story short. They mis-diagnost it. They changed a sensor,..after my warranty expired. It took them 20,000 miles to figure it out..Yeah right!! I don't know if your hesitation is the same, or if that year has the same sensors. Good luck.

Yes mine too. I just bought a 2007 Toyota Camry Le 4 cyl. in March 2007. I drove only a few miles and put gas in it and the engine check light went on. I took to the dealer they said that I did not close the gas tank lid tightly enough. I drove again and put gas in it and closed the tank lid as tight as I could, "close with one click" as it said on the gas tank lid. I did that and still the engine light went on again. So I took to the dealer again and they said the same thing. I put gas in it and closed it tight with one click as they said, still the engine light went on again. Does anyone else have same problem ???

Mines fine. Over 13 months and not a problem.

You might have a defective gas cap! Ask the dealer to read the codes on this vehicle. It might be that the "check engine light" is being set by something other than the gas cap!

I don't know, but I wouldn't be parking it in the garage until you figure out what the problem is. At a minimum, leave it parked outside. You don't want those contained fumes igniting and the thing going up in flames catching your house on fire.

Get it checked out. A 99 Camry with 108k has another 200k left in it. My neighbors just turned 190k...no major repairs until now needs tie rods.
#193 of 318 exhaust manifold
Apr 28, 2007 (6:09 am)
I have a 2003 Camry, 26,000 miles and the engine is making a clicking noise. The noise increses in speed with the rpm. I took it to the dealer and they said it was the exhaust manifold, $677 to fix. Could this be right? Isn't that kind of unusual for the exhaust manifold to be a problem with so low miles? Thanks

Well, I'd definitely get a second opinion -- are there any reputable independent shops in your area that you could go to? You might want to check with friends, relatives, or co-workers for recommendations.
26K miles seems unusually early for an exhaust manifold.
