#177 of 199 Water Pump out at 35k
Feb 17, 2011 (6:16 pm)
So I too just got a call from my mechanic informing me that my water pump has gone out and leaked coolant all over the crank sensor which also needs to be replaced. NICE. You would think at 35k miles there would not be a single problem being that my 05 Corolla XRS has only required routine maintenance with over 150k miles. I have also experienced the brake issue and internal display problem and my car again only has 35k miles~ Please post any standard warranty information as my car is still in the shop and I need to decide if I should tow it to the dealership instead.

The bumper-to-bumper warranty is 36 months, or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. The powertrain warranty, which I think would cover the crank sensor, is 60 months or 60,000 miles.

I believe a call to the dealership, would confirm that a tow to the dealership would be the cheapest best fix for this.

I have a 2008 camry. A couple of weeks ago the keyless entry doesnt work. I tried using another keyless transmitter (never used after I bought the car) but it still doesnt work. Sometimes but rarely it does work which means that I can open the door with the keyless remote transmitter.
so is this the problem of the keyless receiver? can I fix it DIY? thanks!

An "upselling" mechanic is more, most likely your problem.
Water pump seals ALWAYS "seep", but even if an actual failure it would be hard for coolant to compromise the crank position sensor, acid maybe.
#183 of 199 2008 Toyota Camry startup problem
Apr 18, 2012 (2:17 pm)
This has happened twice now, but it's something that is getting me worried. When I go to start my car, it just makes a sound that's like it normally starting only repeating and then going away for a second then coming on. like ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-chhhhhh-on. (sorry about that description, I don't know how else to describe it). I thought it might be the battery, but wouldn't the battery light be on? The maintenance required light has been on for a few weeks, but it usually just means I need to change the oil, but I just got the oil changed a few days ago and it's still on. an the check engine light will come on and off randomly. I don't know if that's linked to the start up problem, but when I take it in to get looked at, I want to know what I should have them look for. any ideas about the starting issue? Thanks!

Could be the battery - is it still the original?
Whoever changed your oil forgot to reset the maintenace required light - if you want to do it yourself, your owner's manual tells you how - VERY easy.
Check engine light - you need to get the codes read (Advanced Auto does for free). Typically, it is an emissions problem or fuel cap loose or fuel cap gasket not sealing. Nothing really serious, unless you have to have your emissions checked for getting your car registration, because then you cannot have a check engine light on.
