2000 Toyota Camry ProblemsPower Steering Leak From Pump and/or Hose
The power steering pump and power steering hoses tend to develop leaks, particularly in the V6 models.
At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.
The EGR System tends to get restricted or blocked with carbon after 100,000- 125,000 miles which will cause an emissions test failure for NOX. If the EGR system is equipped with an EGR temperature sensor it will trigger a Check Engine Light for improper EGR flow. The repair is to clean out the EGR passages and the EGR Temperature sensor. Our technicians tell this repair is pretty straight forward and takes about 1-1.5 hours. It is also wise to verify the EGR system components i.e. the Transducer, EGR Valve and VSV Solenoid at this time.

2000 Toyota Camry RecallsToyota Recalls 2001 Camrys for Deformed Accelerator Cable Housing
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.
