I noticed there were no questions here regarding fuel pumps for the 2000 toyota camry. A co-worker metioned that on his celica that problems occured because his fuel pump was in the gas tank. If the fuel goes below 1/4 tank it causes problems on the fuel delivery. Are there any known problems like this for the2000 toyota camry 2.2L 4 cyl. Please advise. Thank you very much!

    Any fuel injected vehicle will have problems if you run the car below 1/4 tank repeatedly. Gas is what lubricates the fuel pump. If you run below 1/4 tank regularly the pump will starve for gas causing problems with the pump.

    Thanks for the heads up on the fuel pump situation. I have been guilty of letting my fuel go to til the low fuel light comes on which is only about 2 gallons left in the tank. I wonder how many other people practice this bad habit. It probably causes a lot of unnecessary fuel pump problems. Thanks again for the preventative knowledge.This site is awesome!!!
