Two days later we discovered the radiator was cracked after replacing hoses. Then after we replaced the radiator and checking the fluids the brake fluid level was at the top of the container but was the worst was there was not a drop of transmission fluid. It took almost two quarts of fluid. Makes me think what else did not really get checked when they checked off these things were 'OK'.

Had squeaking brakes. Was told drums still fine, just dusty and prior repair place (chain store) overground the rotors so they will need to replaced next time. Explained the thicknesses, etc. Only thing wrong was they didn't re-set the reminder on the dashboard about the next service. Otherwise, great. Price comparable to others. Very respectful and friendly. Will go back.

Not likely rings on a Toyota but valve stem seals are very possible. If you have Toyota Extra Care extended warranty of if it was purchased as a certified used car then they are going to need to see receipts that you changed the oil every 5 ,000 miles. That is the biggest reason for this failure is lack of maintenance. You will also have to take it to a Toyota dealer for these warranties to be honored. If you have a warranty other than those then you may be able to go anywhere. Good Luck!!!.
Hello, My 07 Camry hesitates when I accele...
There is no way of knowing the answers to your questions without inspecting the vehicle. Is the check engine light on??? If not there was a computer update that solves that problem but without more information & having the vehicle so that we can scan the computer I can't answer your questions.....Sorry
My Camry hesitates when going from 10-20mp...
The computer update for the hesitation was not accompanied by any dtc's it was strictly a logic issue. Based on the codes you have it sounds like you need to take the vehicle to an independant shop that can properly diagnose your issues. The codes are probably causing your drivability issues.
How can i find out the cost ?
Depending on your mileage it may be covered by the vehicle manufacturer emission warranty - I would call the cadillac dealer & see if you still have any warranty left - Some emission warranties can be for as long as 10 Years or 100,000 miles.
