#106 of 116 slow gas fill-up
Jan 27, 2010 (8:57 pm)
1999 Toyota Camry-recently i have been having difficulty putting gas from the nozzle to the tank at normal squeeze--it shuts off. if i squeeze the nozzle very lightly its OK but it takes forever to fill tank. It will either shut off at normal squeeze, or even overflow badly. Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem might be or what to check? I'm 83 years old and need help! Thanks.

Put the nozzle into the filler tube further, or turn the angle of the nozzle, you're probably not putting the nozzle into the filler tube correctly.
Try going to a different gas station to use a different pump.

Hi Thanks, but I've tried this already! This is something that has just happened all of a sudden. Is there a filter or valve that could be clogged or stuck?
To completely fill the tank, it might take over a half hour or more now!!
#109 of 116 2010 Toyota Camry oil type and change schedule

Purchased a 2010 Camry XLE 4 cyl last week before the recall. Just my luck. Was informed by the sales people that Toyota is now recommending synthetic oil and a change frequency of 10,000 miles or one year for this car. This isn't out in any manuals as yet and Toyota could not tell me when it would come out or how the info would be sent to customers. Check with your Toyota service departments.

There's no filter in that location, nor to I believe any kind of valve.
You should take the car to a reputable mechanic; you certainly don't want to risk spilling gas on yourself!
#111 of 116 Fuel leaks near fuel rail (sometimes)
Aug 11, 2010 (6:25 pm)
Mechanic replaced the 0 rings, but car (2000 Camry) continued to leak fuel (very heavily). The leak occurs about every other day and I can't pinpoint why, although it seems to occur mostly when the tank is mostly full. The day after my mechanic replaced the 0 rings, it was leaking again, so I brought it back and he couldn't determine where it was leaking. So, I brought the car to another mechanic that told me the 0 rings were done wrong, so he redid them. The next day, the car was leaking gas again, so I brought the car back (three days ago) to the mechanic. He tightened a "clamp" but the car continues to leak gas nearly everyday, but not continuous. Sometimes, it does not leak. When it leaks it literally pours from somewhere near the fuel rail/injectors. To me, it looks like the fuel line near the rail or the clamp. The terrible thing is that it doesn't ever leak like this for the mechanic. I videotaped the leak on my iPhone, but the mechanic told me it's too difficult for him to pinpoint where the leak is coming from unless he can see it leaking. Anyway, should I replace the fuel line? Regulator? Any suggestions as to why the leak is so intermittent would be much appreciated.

Thanks, both mechanics are reputable. They are very well known franchises.

I have a 2000 toyota camry, recently the consumption of fuel has been very high. The car consumes a full tank of fuel in less than 100miles. Initially I taught it was the plugs, but after changing the plugs the problem is still on. I noticed the new plugs have carbons and same with the exhault having huge deposit of carbon as well. What do I do to solve the problem.

My toyota camry 2000 is cosuming so much fuel than it use to. I have tried changing the plugs but the problem is still on. The plugs deposits of carbon same with d exhaust. Which shows complete combustion is not taking place.
