2004 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.
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.
2004 Toyota Camry Questions
When I put the key in the ignition and it's on the "on" slot right before I actually start the car . Is the check engine and airbag light suppose to light up, and should I be concerned and what does that mean please ?
While putting gas in the tank the gas pump shuts off every couple of seconds acting as though the tank is full. The vent hoses have been checked and are ok. Called a Toyota garage and he stated it could be the evac canister. Any suggestions?

2004 Toyota Camry Recalls
The amount of adhesive applied between the inner and outer parts of the crankshaft pulley may be inadequate. If this is the case, the outer ring may become misaligned and/or not properly rotate with the inner ring, causing an abnormal noise and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light. In some cases, the power steering belt could come off resulting in a loss of power steering assist, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the crankshaft pulley and replace it if necessary.
Toyota is recalling 2002–2004 Camry models with curtain shield air bags (CSA) because one or both curtain air bags may be twisted near the inflator. If this occurs, the air bag may not deploy rapidly enough when activated in a side impact collision, failing to provide intended head protection. Dealers will inspect the CSA and replace the air bag assembly if necessary.

Bought new, now with 102,000 miles. No parts failures or early wear of any kind.. The car still has its original brakes, including pads. The secret: a light pedal, and over half the miles are highway miles. Four star explanations: Auto trans often fails to immediately engage in initial acceleration in creeping stop and go, and at stops. Multiple dealers say there is no cure. A light ...
I bought my 2004 Camry in 2008 with 63,000 miles on it. I've been extremely happy with it ever since. I get an oil change every 3,000 miles and have only had to replace the serpentine belt last year. Otherwise, no mechanical repairs have been required. The latch for the small, top compartment between the driver's seat and passenger's seat needs to be fixed and I'll need to get her some new tire...
Hi, i love this car its been pretty good to me over the years, but lately when ever I'm parked doing something on my computer ( I drive a lot for work) I'll hear this squeaking sound, only maybe once a minute. Sounds sort of like when you close a wood door thats just a little too tight. Anyways sounds like its coming from under the dash on the passenger's side or perhaps the middle of the dash....
