I have a 2001 4-cylinder Camry that has developed fluctuation gas mileage. The window sticker stated 30 mi per gal.I got basic 30 mpg.until about 2-years ago.I now fluctuate from as low as 16 mpg,20,24,28 back to around 24 mpg. could this be caused by the injector pump?

I am the third owner of the 2001 Toyota Camry it has 297,000 miles on it and the engine is still very strong, Only problems I have had out of the car is the transmission slips every now and then and the oxygen sensor needs replacing. Only thing I got against this car is it is so light weight, It doesn't do to well in the snow and even in the rain it will spin going up a hill, but because it is so light weight it is very zippy for a little 4 cylinder.
Great car for a student but it didn't really met to my grocery getter expectations. :-)
Bought in 2002 with 33,983 miles. Best car I ever owned. It has over 213,000 miles on it and only been to a mechanic once for a friction wheel on the alternator pulley assembly. I replaced the radiator at 190,000 miles and changed the fuel filter. I absolutely loved this car.
I bought my beautiful antique red 2001 Camry V6 new and still enjoy driving it every day. It is a real road warrior, commuting with me 70 miles round trip 5 to 6 days a week. The car has logged over 202,000 miles and still runs great. Have had no major issues with the car yet, and had only performed Toyota-suggested maintainance and general wear items the first 180,000 miles. The only issue I have with the car is that wheel alignment goes out quickly and rear tires wear a little faster than I am used to. The only remedy for this has been opting for a lifetime four-wheel alignment and tire rotation service and sticking to it.
Recently, certain age related items have cropped up - such as the driver's power window regulator, passenger's inner door latch and valve cover gaskets. The "Check Engine" light has also netted a couple sensor replacements. Although these items cost some money to repair, they are expected of a 9 year old car with high mileage, so I'm not complaining here.
Although I will soon be buying another vehicle, I will continue to drive my 2001 Camry several days a week and keep it maintained and looking good for many more years to come!
I purchased this car in 2003, It gets very good gas mileage. And has been reliable. I have had the transmission seal and oil pan seals replaced by the dealership, while the car was under warranty. Tire wear is good. I seem to be having a problem with the water pump, but its about time to replace it, as well as the timing belt. I have changed the oil regularly. and I recently had the transmission fluids replaced. Still runs as good when I got it at 27,000 miles.
I have owned the car since 2000. In this time all I have done is basic maintaince, Oil change, put a K&N air filter in it, trans fluid change (none of this flush stuff), alignments, rotate tires, three or four sets of brakes and most recently a timing belt, water pump, front seals and the drivers outer door handle. It has been a great car and I don't plan on getting rid of it. The steering is starting to float a little and the trans is shifting a little harder these days but overall a great car. The bigest complaint is the defog in wet weather. The car is so sealed that it needs to run the AC wen ever it is raining to defog the car. MAN it gets cold in there!!
