Toyota Avalon QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I have taken my car to 7 different mechanics and no resolve to this problem to date. I have the wheel bearing hub replaced 6 months ago and the same wheel that the hub was replaced on is the one that constantly wobbles. I asked if the hub was defective and all I get is that the car is mechanically sound. The axles have been checked I have put 4 new tires on the car again and had all balanced and the transmission is sound and gears all in working condition. Honestly this is getting expensive replacing things that are not resolving this problem and I'm tired of driving a car that feels like an exercise machine gone bad.
Independent garage says they had nothing to do with light coming on but searching internet find that this can occur when proper care isn't used to protect wiring.
I WISH TO REPAIR THE TWO FAULTS MENTIONED ABOVE
Still dont work help
my car is in good condition and i dont rag it out i only drive from point a to point b.....why do you think the check engine light is coming on?....im getting your oppinion so i dont get ran over.....thanks
Recently replaced valve cover gaskets and spark plugs, checked all vacuum lines, cleaned mass air flow, any ideas?
Filling the car's gas tank was no problem until after we returned from a 10 1/2 month RV trip. The car remained in the garage and was not driven during that time. When we returned and went to fill the car's gas tank we found that the gas tank or filler spout would no longer vent causing gas to rise in the spout stopping the pump, and the problem has remained since we returned several months ago. I can only add a 1/2 to 3/4 gallon before the pump hose shuts off. I then have to wait 3-5 seconds before squeezing the handle again. It takes forever to fill the tank. A mechanic put the car on a lift to check underneath the car but found nothing out of order, nor could find any evidence where insects (such as mud dobbers) could have plugged something up as some Camry owners have experienced. BTW, the gas cap was never left off leaving the filler spout open. Any feedback would be much appreciated.
A large leak can I fix this myself
My 1998 Avalon has 122,000 miles on it. While there is slight movement in the engine (less than 1") when shifting gears, the ride is still smooth and I do nt hear any clunking. My Toyota dealer says that I need to replace all 5 mounts (inl. the trans. mount), even though only 2 are shot, at a cost of $1,300. Is that necessary at this stage? Can I wait?
Sound a lil like turbo but I dont have 1
I have not had any problems with my Toyota car until this major problem came up?
This started a month ago. It would start at first but the more it locked up the less it would start turning the car on. Now the car will not start at all. The key will not unlock past the accessories.
97 Toyota Avalon (V6) with 162,000 miles. However, the engine was rebuilt (due to a recall) by Toyota back at 89K. The Check engine light first came on last week. I tried to do a reset and it worked for about a day and then the light came back on. I realize I will need to have it looked at but I was hoping for a little heads up on the possible causes for the light being on. Thanks,
I cannot get my trunk closed. It happened once before and it fixed itself more or less. I can't recall doing anything specific to get it closed. It is probably something on the car I am not familiar with.
I feel it is something maybe to do with my garage door opening and closing or something I'm not aware of on the car. I do not remember how it corrected itself before, but I was able to get it down later in the day.
JUST A WEEK AGO I HAD A GEAR ASSY CAMSHA, GASKET CYLINDER, GASKET SPARK, PLU , RING, SEAL, OCV, GASKET, AIR SURGE DONE
THE ENGINE LIGHT HAD COME ON AND THEY HAD DONE A DIAGNOSIS, AND THEN REPLACED THE CAM GEAR ASSY AND NEEDED GASKETS AND SEALS. ONE WEEK LATER THE LIGHT IS BACK ON WITH THE CODES ABOVE.
All plugs n wires changed. No engine light on. Idles up n down n lights get bright ndim as idle ffluctuates. Coil? Does check engine light come on for coil
Is this something I can do myself?
Replaced plugs, wires and number 5 coil. Still have same problem. Could the injector be bad?
Fuel usage is very high 20 liters per 100 km. Car accelerates slowly
I tried it by removing battery terminal for 3 hours and tighten the gas cup again. Then I put the terminal back and lights went off but after driving 40 miles lights are again on and it also causes to tighten up the brake paddle and traction control also doesn't work.
I recently replaced a tire and had a realignment. Now my car hesitates. It is also shaking while driving. I slid on ice and ran up on the cement median which caused a hole in my front drivers side tire. Any ideas what is causing the hesitation?
