Problem Reported: Failed Emissions Test Due to Blocked EGR System
September 15, 2010, 10:06 PM
<p>The <a id="ce_9145" class="ct_null tooltip" href="/exhaust-gas-recirculation-system">EGR</a> System tends to get restricted or blocked with carbon after 100,000- 125,000 miles which will cause an emissions test failure for NOX. If the EGR system is equipped with an EGR temperature sensor it will trigger a <a class="ct_auto care advice tooltip" href="/understanding-the-check-engine-light"><span class="ct_null tooltip">Check Engine Light</span></a> for improper EGR flow. The repair is to clean out the EGR passages and the EGR Temperature sensor. Our technicians tell this repair is pretty straight forward and takes about 1-1.5 hours. It is also wise to verify the EGR system components i.e. the Transducer, EGR Valve and VSV Solenoid at this time.</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>
