2008 Toyota Camry Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2008 Toyota Camry

The power steering pump and power steering hoses tend to develop leaks, particularly in the V6 models.

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.

I own a 2008 Camry SE, and I would NEVER purchase another one. While my car was under warranty, I had to have the seals around the windshield and sunroof replaced because they were improperly installed, and I had to have the CD player repaired.
