Hi--can you tell me how to replace the clock in my 2005 Camry?

The automatic seat belt (shoulder harness) has stopped working on the passenger side. How do I fix it?

Why doesn't anyone read their owners manual anymore? 85% of the questions asked here are covered in the owners manual. If you don't have your owners manual get one most can be found free online, junked cars, or just pay for one at the dealer they are worth it.

My trusty Toyota camry is ok except that the air conditioning is out. It needs old fashioned freon. How much should that cost and is there any place you recommend here in Irvine, Ca.

My tires were wearing unevenly and the auto shop told me it is because my struts need to be replaced. I have about 63,000 miles on my 05 camry. The tires start to make a loud hum on the roadway. I have not noticed any squeaking noises when I go over bumps. Does this really sound like a strut problem?

Vibration when car comes to a slow stop\. No vibration while running. Condition when air conditioner in use.

car radio and lights go out when you hit a bump then they come back on also the read out on the dash shows that the back lights are out yet when you check the light bulbs they are not out and the fuses are not blown but the reverse lights dont work and without the key in the ignition i moved the battery slightly and it arc sparks flew what to do?how much it will cost?

My 2000 Camry 2.2L is in my mechanic's shop. It has 198,000 miles on it. I had him to put a Water Pump & Drive Belt on because it's been about 100,000 since the last time I had it done. I had an oil leak. He put a new oil pan gasket on and also new seals on the oil pump, crankshaft and one more place. The car was running perfect when I took it in except for the oil leak. He called me today and said that the car cranks right up but starts to choke down and goes dead after about five seconds. He said there are no codes showing up and he tried several things like sensors etc... He said he and his employee has taken everything apart again and reassembled it and they just don't have a clue what is causing this. Starting Friday this car will put about four thousand miles on it in the next three weeks. My only hope is that someone on here can give me some suggestions to why it does not stay running. Again it ran like a charm when I took it in. I was doing this as preventive maintenance not that I was having trouble. HELLLLLLLLLP.

My power windows just stopped working what could be the problem?

Check engine light has come on sporadically (once/week or every 10 days) since June; it typically stays on 12 - 24 hrs. The code is P0773. Car was checked by transmission shop last Friday; there are no shifting problems. Their estimate for further diagnostics and repair: $500 if solenoid; $1400 if valves; $3000 if transmission. Hourly rate is $89. The CEL has now been on consistently since
last Thurs eve. Does it seem urgent to have the work done ASAP? Can I safely wait a month or more? Car has 75,000 miles.

I need to replace all 3 parking brake cables due to disintegration from rust and corrosion. I need to locate an independant mechanic to take care of this repair.

I have a recurrent musty odor emitted through the vent and A/C. It is more frequent in the summer. I live in ND where outdoor humidity is low. I have had some success eliminating it temporarily by putting the venitilaton system on recycle and spraying lysol under the passenger side dash where I presume it is drawn in and circulated. (?). Nevertheless, it reoccurs. Its becomming more frequent and harder to eliminate. Have you heard of this with other toyota owners? Is there something somewhere in the system that could be soggy? (smells like a soggy mop)

How can the crankshaft pulley/harmonic balancer be removed? I have tried internal jaw type pulley removers but the jaws are too big, also rented a universal kit from an auto parts store that didn't work either. Called a Toyota dealership thinking they would have a "specialty tool" that could be purchased but they said Toyota doesn't have specialty tools for sale. Help!!

How do I find spark plugs? Does anyone have a photo to help me?

approx every 4 week the car will idle at a stop. it starts to shake a little at the wheel, then alternator, check enegine and batties lights come on it shuts off. I then put it in park. turn it off start it up and then it runs like a dream until next time

I recently had my engine quit on me. Triple A came and diagnosed an alternator problem. Had the alternator changed and car ran smoothly for about 2 weeks. Last week, the check engine light came on and now my dashboard lights seem to be dimmer and flickery. Car is running but am just afraid the car will quit on me again. What seems to be the problem?

The "STOP" lights, when the engine and car are off, will turn off, I simply removed the fuse in order not to drain the battery.
What is the next course of action?

how can i check wot is wrong i abs system .. a sensor is bad or module is broke ..

In the past the check engine light would go on after getting gas. When I had a small shop mechanic he would just turn the light off and not charge me. Now I go to a toyota dealership for lof and they want $120 to diagnose why light is on. Any helpful advice would be appreciated. I'm a 64 year old female and I don't want to do repairs myself; my brother tells me he bought a checker for $40 and uses it himself. Thanks for any help.
