65 problems related to engine burning oil have been reported for the 2007 Toyota Camry.
I purchaed my 2007 Toyota Camry 3yrs ago, this car burns so much oil, I keep my oil changed but in between oil changes I continue to add an additional 3 qts, I have inquired about this problem on several ocassions to the car dealership (louie herron) in milledgeville GA, to express lube but no one seemed to tell me why my car was burning so much oil. It was not until this weekend I took my vehicle back to the dealership is when he advised me my particular vehicles engine needs rebuilt but is not considered a recall, I'm trying to get to the bottom of this, it is very fustrating as a woman to buy a vehicle from a dealership an later (3years later) find out the engine is shot, the dealership is aware but "I" was left in the dark. .
Own a 2007 Toyota Camry with 69,000 mile which has heavy oil consumption, one quart every 3,000 miles approximately. Toyota says this is normal oil consumption. Filed complaint with Toyota USA, complaint number cr21044. They said I was the first complaint concerning this problem. The car has no oil leaks. Toyota knows about the problem because they issued TSB-0094-11 bulletin. Would like for the NHTSA to investigate because in all Toyota Camry 2007 forums this is a common problem among owners and nothing has been done. At some point in time this is going to cause major damage to the vehicle about a manufacturing defect that Toyota is aware of. If they were not aware of problem why did they issue tsb009411?.
The car began to burn oil rapidly between oil changes. Dealer claims no knowledge of cause and recommends complete engine replacement.
The Toyota Camry xle consumes a lot of oil over a 1000 miles distance. More than a quart. I have seen many posts online about this being a problem. Toyota posted a bulletin in 2011, but that is them trying to call major oil consumption by the engine 'normal'. This is causing a problem for the environment and for drivers, as they can be on the highway or streets and have their engine go out.
Vehicle has been maintained at two area Toyota dealers since purchased. Maintenance intervals were closely adhered to, and no problems were ever reported by the service people regarding engine performance or oil consumption. During a December 2013 vehicle service at an authorized dealership, service technician reported that the oil pan seal and the valve cover gasket needed to be replaced due to oil leakage. I (owner) inspect vehicle frequently, and knew this was not the case. Between vehicle servicing dates, I checked the oil and found it to be too low to register on the oil dipstick. I added the grade of oil indicated on the oil fill cap and made an appointment at an independent certified auto shop. I also inspected the engine frequently for leakage at the oil pan and valve cover, and observed no oil leaks. The independent certified shop inspected the vehicle, and found no signs of leakage. The independent certified shop performed the routine service, including oil change, and provided the Toyota 2011 service bulletin that described the excessive oil consumption and Toyota's own suggested repair. This lead me to research the engine, and I found that this is likely a significant and widespread defect that Toyota identified as early as 2008. As a commuter, I fear the excessive oil consumption could lead to premature engine wear, resulting in catastrophic engine failure.
There is excessive oil consumption for my car. I have noticed that I have to add 5-7 quarts of oil in between oil changes because about 2000 miles after my oil change my oil light comes on. I check the oil and the stick is bone dry meaning it is very low, almost empty. I have to add a few quarts of oil and then it happens again. I do this until I need to go back to get my oil changed again. This is an issue because I purchased this vehicle based on the reliability and driving my two children around daily it makes me nervous knowing that if I do not stay directly on top of this my engine could blow.
Our 2007 Toyota Camry has been burning more oil than manual specifies. We began to check oil level once a week, due to low amount of oil. In September, 2013, we had blue smoke coming from the car. When we checked with mechanic, he asked if 4 cyl or 6 cyl. He had done so many repairs on this make/model/yr, he could diagnose the problem over the phone. He had to replace the valve seals on the engine, at a cost of $1400. I wrote to Toyota corp with no luck in getting reimbursement. I believe safety is an issue with this vehicle, due to oil shortage.
My 2007 Toyota Camry with miles of 127,000 that is burning oil about every 1000 miles driven on it. The car is taken care of oil is changed every 3000 miles. It does not leak. I do not understand why so many people are complaining on this matter and nothing has been done to fix this problem. I have owned 3 other Toyota's and have never had this problem before on any of them. If Toyota knows about this problem why is this not been recalled. I have also been told by a Toyota mechanic that the 2007 Toyota's do have bad blocks in them and Toyota is not doing anything with this problem.
I bought the car with the odometer reading 69,566 miles on the engine . I change the oil (5-20w) and filter and within a couple of thousand of miles I heard small knocking like a deep bearing going bad. I check the oil and discovered it was not registering on the oil stick. It needed nearly 3 quarts of oil. The Toyota solara burns too much oil to be safe. The car could of had a catastrophic accident by freezing up on the freeway. I believe Toyota engineered and produced a defective engine and is trying to cover it up by telling the buyers "its normal' to have oil consumption 1 quart every 600 miles". The owners manual states to "change your oil every 4,500 miles. This is a contradiction as adding 1 quart of new oil every 600 miles is effectively changing your oil by default. Who is Toyota kidding? I have 10k to pay off the loan. I want Toyota to fix the problem and be a responsible corporation.
The engine light goes on before the scheduled oil change because there is no oil and the stick is dry. Because of this problem I have to refill the oil frequently. I was told by the service people that the oil is burning out, which has a negative effect on the environment.
My 2007 Camry is consuming around 3. 5 quarts between 5000miles oil change intervals. This consumption is quite high by any standard . I believe that this is some sort of of a manufacturing/design flaw which comes up once the vehicle comes out of warranty period. There are no leaks or visible signs of oil loss, I hate to say the engine is burning the oil and polluting the environment. Toyota should acknowledge and fix this problem for all Camry customers.
My 2007 Toyota solara coupe l4-2. 4l (2az-fe) has the engine oil consumption problem. This was confirmed by my service center and is in regard to the technical service bulletin t-sb-0094-11. The engine loses oil at rapid rate and gasoline gets in the oil, which could cause a fire. This is a serious engine problem which should be a recall. Because Toyota lists this problem only as a technical service bulletin, they say they are not required to contact the vehicle owner to make them aware of this problem. The repairs needed require major engine/piston work costing $5,000. They will not pay for this if the vehicle has over 60,000 miles. Because I cannot afford $5,000, and I need the car to get to work, I am stuck with a useless and dangerous vehicle where the engine will seize up and die. Who knows what tragedy this will cause if I am in the vehicle at the time.

2007 Toyota Camry. Consumer writes in regards to engine malfunction and seeks financial assistance for repairs from manufacturer. The consumer stated due to excessive oil consumption, the dealer informed her, the vehicle needed a new engine, or she could add a quart of oil every week. Although, she has complied with the maintenance standards, Toyota decided to ignore what was seemingly a manufacturing defect.

There is excessive oil consumption for this vehicle. I got an oil and filter change on 2/9/13 because the low oil light was flashing. I drove my car back and forth to work and home as normal which is about 15 miles each way. My oil light is back on indicating low oil and the dipstick also indicates low oil. Today is 3/4/13. It has not even been 3000 miles since my last oil change. I am afraid to drive this car because I do not know if the engine will fail at any given moment. There are several complaints on the internet indicating other owners are also having this issue. This appears to be a defect with the car. Please address this issue with Toyota. It is not safe to have an oil change and not know at any time that your engine could be running on low/no oil.
Approximately 10k miles ago I noticed that the oil light on my 2007 Camry came on approximately 1,000 miles before the scheduled oil change *(scheduled every 5000 miles). I refilled it and it took over three quarts of oil. When I took it into the dealer for its oil change, I mentioned it. Nothing was said and the oil change proceeded. The next oil change cycle, the same thing happened. . Read more...

Approximately toward the end of 2012 and into 2013 we started to notice that the engine oil light was coming on periodically - roughly around the 65 - 70,000 mileage point. We began adding oil, and re-checking the oil and found that the car was consuming oil at a rate of about 1 quart per 2 weeks. I would estimate based on the distance to employment that it comes to about 1 quart per 600-700 miles. A couple times the engine oil dip-stick was almost dry & covered in tar - which I had to rub vigorously to get off after adding oil… now, we keep close track of the level. We took the car into the dealer on 5/31/13 and the dealer had no answer for the increased oil consumption other than to verify that were no leaks or oil in the cooling system.
My Toyota Camry burned 1 quart of oil about every 1000 miles, the problem started at 51000 miles, dealer performed oil consumption test and advised me to pay 2500 dollars for labor to fix that problem, they only cover the parts cost 1500 dollars . I did a research and found out many Camry had the same problem, I can't afford to fix this car, please help , hopefully NHTSA would make the Toyota corporation doing a recall and fix this problem, thank you very much.
My check engine light came on and when I took it to the dealer, I had no oil in the car. However, I was well within the range before an oil change was due. They conducted an oil consumption test and found nothing was wrong. But every two months since then, I've had the same problem. I had another oil consumption test in January 2013. The results of each oil consumption test is said to be ok, but every two months an oil consumption test is required and my car keeps burning too much oil. Finally, the dealer told me that the engine needs to be overhauled. If this has been the problem all along, then this should have been done when I first made my complaint in December, before my warranty ran out. I was told that Toyota will not pay for my engine to be overhauled because my warranty is now expired. I'm forced to either pay $4,100 to overhaul the engine and hope that the problem will be fixed, or buy a new car. Toyota should be responsible for this since the problem began before my warranty ran out. Toyota has exclusively changed my oil for 6 years and was aware that the car was consuming too much oil. They should have suggested the engine overhaul during my warranty. It was faulty on their behalf not to mention the severity of this issue until after the warranty is expired. This prompted me to conducted research and I found that hundreds of people are having this issue. A recall on this engine should be made. Toyota offers no assistance in anytype of solution. If you can advise of any help I can get, please let me know. Thanks.
There was no accident . I am reporting and filing a complaint about a "engine oil consumption problem" "major engine and piston problem. " in my car a Toyota solara 2007. This problem started 9 months to a year ago and I have to keep putting in oil so often (every month) it seems ridiculous as my car is only (6) years old and the problem started at (5) years old. I have enquired and see that there were many other complaints of the same type (service bulletins-t-sb-0094-11) previously. I strongly believe there should be a recall on this problem. This should not be happening to such a new car or at all for that matter. I have always believed in Toyota cars I was under the impression they have one of the best engines made. What's happening! this is very disturbing to me. Please respond. Thank you.
Extreme oil consumption-have to add 1 quart per week.
