Yes, flasher could be bad, but you should also look closely at the bulb operation. Have someone work signals while you look at bulbs. Pay close attention to the intensity of the bulbs, if a filament is broke/shorting.
Could be the drivers side left kickpanel, but also might be behind glove compartment. Easiest way to determine, follow your ear to the clicking (when it's working).
Would expect to find a flasher at any parts store.

Hi - I've got an 2001 4-cyl Camry that is throwing an error code P1135. Not sure what the code is - any help is welcome. I've got to get an inspection sticker and don't want to buy the wrong sensor.
Thanks in advance.

I have a 2001 Camry and the airbag, ABS, and cruise control lights are all constantly blinking. This just started yesterday. Any ideas as to what could cause it. Could it be a fuse or something electronic?

I have had my car since 06/2008. It is a great little car, very little maintenance. However; I am in the little above average range in no how to work on cars. I have had a lot of experiences with other owned vehicles. My question is-where in the world is the PCV valve on my car. It is the wierdest thing I have seen yet. I have yet to be able to located it using the every day common books in autozones and such. It is definitely not located in the usual spot that I am used to? I appreciate the help.

There is no PCV valve on that car. There is a hose that goes from the crankcase to the throttle body near where the flex air intake hose attaches to the throttle body. This hose looks like a large vacuum hose and needs to be checked once in a while for blockage. Because of this system the butterfly valve will tend to carbon up and cause a sticking throttle when you try to depress accelerator, and you will need to sparingly use carb cleaner on a rag to clean the butterfly valve.

Aha! So that's why my former '97 Camry didn't appear to have a PCV valve either. Same 2.2-liter engine (or was it 2.0 liters in '90?)

Thanks, so then 2.2 liters for the 3rd and 4th generations (1992-2001)?
#555 of 727 2000 Camry maintenance
Nov 17, 2009 (5:41 am)
My girlfriend owns a 2000 Camry Le with a 2.2 L engine with 60 K and I want to change the tranny fluid, radiator coolant, front rotors and brakes, air filter and spark plugs and wires.
1.Should I do a flush like another Camry owner here has done using 8-9 qts of fluid using a one gallon jug and should I change the filter as well?
2.Is it time for spark plugs and wires?
3.Besides the things I mentioned is there anything else I should be changing? All the belts look good.
4. How do I flush the radiator? Just drain all the fluid out and replace with 50/50?
5. She had a preinspection on the car prior to purchase and they said she needed front brakes and rotors, is it OK to just go to Advance Auto for such things?
Also I understand it may be time for a new timimg belt. How nessessary is this at 60K? And should we change other things like water pump while we are in there? This car is a new addition to our family, I don't want her to get starnded in the middle of nowhere with a breakdown.
