2001 Toyota Camry Problems

Motor Mount on Passenger Side May Wear Out on Higher Mileage Vehicles

One or more motor mounts may wear out on cars with high mileage. This will put extra stress on the other mounts, and the faulty mount(s) should be replaced.

Ignition Coil May Fail After 100,000 Miles

On higher mileage vehicles, an engine misfire may develop and/or the Check Engine Light may illuminate due to a failed ignition coil. It is not uncommon to replace all the coils when the first one fails in order to prevent return trips to the repair shop.

Driving Over Bumps May Cause Loud Noises in Body of Vehicle

Driving over bumps causes loud, annoying noises in the body of the car. If the noise is a groaning or creaking, it can be improved by lubricating the rubber joints in the suspension system. If the noise is a rattling sound, the problem is likely wear and tear on the upper mounting plate for one or more of the suspension struts.

Toyota Recalls 2001 Vehicles Due to Improper Welding on Sub Frame

Toyota is recalling 2001 Avalon, Camry, and Sienna vehicles because the front sub frame assembly has not been adequately welded. This could cause failure of the assembly following long-term usage, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace the front sub frame, if necessary.

Toyota 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.
