2000 Toyota Camry Problems
The Check Engine Light may illuminate because a component of the oxygen sensor stops working. As a result the engine computer is unable to determine the proper ratio of air to fuel for the engine. Replacing the failed oxygen sensor should correct this concern.
The valve cover gaskets have a tendency to leak oil, especially the one near the firewall.
2000 Toyota Camry Questions
While in the process of timing belt disassembly, I rotated independently clockwise/counter-clockwise both the crank and cam of my 2000 camry to ensure they stay on their corresponding TDC marks. It happened when I was trying to loosen the bolt. Now I kinda worried... I realized 2 rotation of cran...
When I manually turn the crank to align timing marks, it got stuck at maybe 180 degree. I struggled to make the 360 degree rotation and it made the crank bolt so tight again. Any idea?
2000 Toyota Camry Recalls
Toyota is recalling certain 2001 Camry models equipped with cruise control and V6 engines because the accelerator cable housing could be deformed at the cruise control actuator-to-throttle body connection. This may cause the accelerator inner-cable to wear and eventually break, allowing the throttle to return to idle or remain in its most recent position, regardless of pedal operation, which increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the accelerator cable.
Toyota is recalling 2000 Avalon, Camry, and Solara models because an improper heat treatment may cause the rear axle to be weaker in some areas. After extended use of the vehicle, the rear axle shafts could fail or break. Dealers will inspect and replace the rear axle hub assemblies.
