Question Asked: Bought my car and it has 173,500 on it right now. Sea foamed car, fuel smell now
December 06, 2011, 08:55 PM
So, I sea foamed my car(twice). First time I did 2/3 in the tank, and 1/3 in the vacuum line(no oil because I couldn't afford an oil change at the time). 2nd time I put the whole thing in the vacuum line and now fuel smell occurs. No smoke, but now it smells like fuel. What's that?

Problem Reported: Automatic Transmission May Not Shift Correctly at High Mileages
September 15, 2010, 10:06 PM
<p>At higher mileages, (125,000-150,000) the <span class="tooltip">automatic transmission</span> may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor being out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.</p>
Problem Reported: Warped Front Brake Rotors Can Cause Steering Wheel to Shudder
May 27, 2010, 11:08 AM
<p>As the size of the Camry vehicle gets ever larger, there is a tendency to warp the <a id="ce_5551" class="ct_null tooltip" href="/brake-rotor">front rotors</a>. This will be felt as a shudder in the steering wheel when braking. The front rotors can be remachined, if there is sufficient material left, otherwise the front rotors will need to be replaced. It is recommended to use factory quality rotors because cheap quality rotors warp very easily and tend to squeak and squeal.</p>

<p>One or more motor mounts may wear out on cars with high mileage. This will put extra stress on the other mounts, and the faulty mount(s) should be replaced.</p>
