Reported by robbratton for the Toyota Camry

The car seems to go out of alignment on all four wheels frequently. I've purchased an unlimited alignment plan from a local auto service provider and I get it done every month or so. It's always out, sometimes significantly.

I had the rear adjusters replaced since they had rusted to the point that they couldn't be turned anymore.

I happen to drive through a flooded street, spent around 2 hours in a traffic jam, then the car started displaying battery check signs on the screen. 22minutes later, the lamps went off, radio etc. when i managed to park, i let the engine cool then i restarted it and remove the positive battery terminal, the engine stopped!

We bought our 2004 Sienna new, drove it in town and on vacations. The transmission died at 250000 mms or about 155000 miles. It would have cost more to replace the transmission than the value of the car so it had no trade-in value. Toyota's usual reliability and resale value was sorely missing.

The Compressor was 2,400 to repair. You can't purchase the compressor and dryer separate. It is all one until and very expensive to replace.

Noticed low noise in front of vehicle. Had it looked at by a mechanic, as I was out of town, who said the tie rods needed to be replaced. Took it to Toyota for inspection when I got home. Turned out to be a bad drivers side front wheel bearing. Bearing was R&R'd and car is fine now. Cost was $500.00

Engine will not idle after a battery change especially when air conditioner is on. Read this is common problem. The computer that controls the engine idle loses it's memory and no longer remembers how to idle. Fix by driving the car between 5 and 10 miles. This puts the lost data back into the computer ECU and now it idles just like it did prior to the battery problem.

it cost approximately $112.00 per coil not including the labor and if it i a coils in the back it will for labor $400. for each repair bc of the gasket that must be replaced. with that said, if 1 to 3 coils are in the back i do know 1 is and i haven't check to find out how many are located in the back behind the engine. if you replace 1 in the back economically it would be more effective to replace both at the same time to save money. Ever...

Reported by allenw for the Toyota Tundra

The AIR Pump (or otherwise know as the smog pump in the old days) that preheats the cadilidic converters by running for 1 minute after engine start will fail. It produces a P1445 or P14442 error. I have two of these vehicles and both have failed at around 100K miles. The cause is the foam inside the pump deteriorates and gets in the hi speed fan. That burns out the DC motor that runs it. The cost of this pump is $1200 plus $800 labor because i...

A transmission fault code of P0770 or P0773 may occur at higher mileages which indicates that the 3-way lock-up solenoid has failed and will need replacement.

Verified for the Toyota Pickup

At higher mileages, an anti-lock brake system wheel speed sensor may wear out and illuminate the ABS warning light. It is recommended to replace the sensor with a factory part and be sure to clean all rust and debris from the mounting area because the mounting distance is critical. Failure to do so may result in the new sensor setting false trouble codes. Be sure to check the condition and runout of the front wheel bearings on the 2WD and 4WD vehicles and the CV joints on the 4WD vehicles since worn wheel bearings and/or CV joints can cause the ABS trigger rings to rub against the ABS sensors and damage them.
