90 problems related to engine burning oil have been reported for the 2007 Toyota Camry.
I have a Toyota solara 2007 it has an excessive oil consumption problem (tested and certified by Toyota of south florida dealer as part of Toyota national recall)but Toyota corporation doesn't have an specific time to fix this problem because they don't have yet the parts to replace and they don't know when those parts will be available. This problem has been recognized by Toyota since 2014. How they don't have these parts yet?.
My car was burning more than 5 quarts in less than 3k miles but after long time finally Toyota has fixed the issue. But this was happening for me from 45k miles on my car around 2009 until now. Mean while since the engine was burning which caused my catalytic converter to blow off. They should replace the catalytic converter too because this is caused by the engine oil burning in the combustion camber. Few years back they fixed my power window on the driver side but last 12- 18 months I am experiencing an issue some times the window opens on the passenger side but most of the time passenger would try to open but it wont open. I believe its an electrical issue which may have happened after they fixed on the driver side. If any accident happens then the passenger wont be able to get out which is very dangerous its an safety issue.
On 3/4/15 I had an oil change at conrad's. On 3/11/15 I took my vehicle in to Toyota for the oil consumption test. At this time they asked when my last oil change was and I stated 3/4/15. They said they typically like to perform the oil change before the test but that oil change was recent enough to use. When they checked my oil they said my car arrived with no oil reading on the dipstick and that it was more than one quart low on oil. I explained how could that be I have no oil in my driveway or anywhere. The service advisor said they would need to do an oil change or they couldn't do the test. I called conrad's they stated that is not true and it's there word against Toyota. I had Toyota perform the oil change and they also sealed the engine off for the test. On 4/22/15 I returned as I had reached 1200 miles since the start of the test. At that point they stated my car passed and the oil consumption was good. In June I was headed out of town and the oil light flashed on as I exited the highway. At that point we added two quarts of oil. Now it is 8-5-15 and my son was driving the car and the engine started knocking. We added two quarts of oil but it's too late. The noise coming from inside the engine did not stop. Called Toyota today and talked to the service manager and he said I could bring it in to be looked at. I will have to tow it up there as I'm not sure if it's drivable. Next oil change was 9-7-15 or 92481 miles. Current milage 94014. It appears that the car is burning an excessive amount of oil even though Toyota claims it passed the test.
I was driving home from work, and as I was coming to a stop I heard a warning ding, looked down, and my dashboard read "low engine oil pressure. " I found that warning odd considering I have only put 2,000 miles on my car since my last oil change, I have not noticed any oil leaks in my parking spot or under my car, and I had my transmission serviced four weeks ago and there was no mention of any leaks by the service technician. I pull into the walmart parking lot close by, check my oil, and oil levels are not registering on my dipstick. I quickly bought 2 quarts of the manufacturers recommended weight of oil, put them in, and went directly to my service station. The service station took me in immediately, completed their inspection, and they informed me that they cannot find any leaks anywhere. In addition, there are no bad smells, no smoke, no signs of oil burning, nothing. They recommended an oil change, which I did. The service station gave me a 50% discount on the service because it was only 2 months and 2,000 miles since I was last there for an oil change. The mechanic suggested that I keep a case of oil in my trunk, check the oil level once a week, and add oil as needed. I think this is a lot of oil consumption, and a lot of work for such a young vehicle. My car is a 2007 Toyota Camry xle 4 cylinder with 79,004 miles as of 21 April 2015.
My car started using oil at 115,000-123,000 miles. I took it in 2-3 months ago and Toyota performed an oil consumption test. My car used 1. 6 quarts of oil during that time, it did not have any external leaks when they performed this test. I was told it was not under recall and this much oil consumption is normal. Using the much oil is not normal and it was not using oil before the 115,000 miles. I was told since it was not under recall that if I wanted the valve seals repaired it would be under my expense. This is not a new complaint about the 2007 Camry and the internet has numerous customers having excessive oil consumption and some were worse than mine. Toyota should own up to this defect and fix it.
We got a warranty enhancement on our Toyota which started to lose alot of oil we took to Toyota green in lexington ky they had on their report we done over 2196 miles when started the test. Which was completely wrong they said we only used 1/2 quart of oil so it was not losing enough oil emailed Toyota considers oil consumption excessive when it exceeds 1. 1 quart per 600 miles. My husband has been checking since took writes down mileage when he checks it had little over 900 miles on it and we had lost almost a quart of oil it liked 1/8 being a full court. Of course they say it says it in the book what they can use. I have had exactly 4 Toyotas and they have never done this. They told us that we can take back in 5000 miles or 6mo which ever comes first. This just does not sound right to me. My husband was not back there when they checked every think which next time he will be. Their exact words they said when checked when they first checked it was slightly low added one qt of oil rechecked and it was little over. When it states in the book also never to put over the amount of oil in the car.
The engine on this car have consumption two quarts oil every two thousand miles. And don't have any leaks.
Excessive oil consumption is a problem. The vehicle uses three quarts of oil between 5,000 mile service. Two oil consumptions tests were done. Toyota stated not eligible for warranty. . . . . Updated 11/18/15.
This car has burned a quart of oil every 1000 miles for the past seven years. Recently received a TSB from Toyota on this issue and as instructed, took it into a Toyota dealership. I was shocked to learn from their staff that Toyota was considering replacing my engine if it did indeed burn a quart of oil every 1000 miles. I mean come on---the car has 180k miles on it. Never the less, I was impressed with the idea. They "sealed" the oil cap so no one could tamper with the oil level. They informed me that they had topped off the oil level. I put another 1200 miles on it and returned the car as instructed, to allow them to "perform a detailed test to determine if the engine was consuming a quart every 1000 miles. I checked the oil dipstick the morning I took the car back to Toyota. It was a full quart low on oil. Interesting, but Toyota performed their test and advised they would contact me. Did not happen. A month later I called the dealership and they informed me the CA had burned 7/8 of a quart and as it was less than a quart, I was basically sol. All said and done, I was not expecting a new engine. I was expecting to leave feeling I had been treated fairly and professionally. The net result is that I have made two totally unnecessary trips to the dealer just to be informed Toyota does not and will not do anything. . . . Becauset their test indicated the car failed to meet their criteria by 1/8 of a quart. Gee. . . It was aquart low when I took it in, but wait. . . (I must be an idiot and blind. You. Think they pulled the dipstick out and kept looking at it until they saw what they wanted to see?? I had been considering purchasing another Toyota product but this experience has demonstrated to me why I should never consider Toyota. I liked their Camry, but they failed to appreciate my honesty and demonstrated a lack of impartial decision making. Adios amigo.
Excessive oil consumption was noticed in this vehicle around December 2014. The dealer refuses to deal with it considering 1 quart for every 1,000 miles is normal.
Vehicle leaks or burns oil in excess from unknown location or undisclosed location by manufacturer. No oil visible on ground underneath car . Engine was not getting adequate lubrication due to this problem and thus caused engine failure. Vehicle was no longer able to accelerate on freeway and had to be pulled over putting vehicle owner at risk and other drivers on road in danger. The engine is now damaged and is unable to be repaired despite proper maintenance and recommended oil changes as per dealership and owners manual. The engine now has to be replaced. This leakage has been reported by over hundreds of unsatisfied customers and has purposely been disregarded by manufacturer despite the numerous complaints received and made by 2007 Toyota Camry owners. Many of which suffered like this owner and had to pay out of pocket for a new engine despite this being a manufacturer defect that has been neglected.
This engine has high engine oil consumption, there is no visible leaks, no blue smoke indication, and oil lamp keeps going of on stops and acceleration. When that happens is because the engine oil is low, even after regular oil changes at mileage and dated recommendations Toyota do have a history of this in late 90' with v6 models due to oil sluggish and appears it's happening again. This is also safety concern cause the vehicle might ceased during operation and can cause an accident on our national highways. Also it is believe that this is manufacturer defect issue and Toyota needs to rectify.
Engine excessive oil consumption. While I was driving on a city street oil light start flickering after turns and applying break pedal. I pulled my vehicle over and shut down an engine. After I checked my oil level and it was hardly on a stick. I do change my oil regularly, every 5000 miles. Toyota's oil light starts flickering when I lost almost 3 quarters, which could lead to engine shut down, glad I wasn't on a highway at that time and had enough time to pull over and take my car to a mechanic to add engine oil. As a result of Toyota's engine engineering flow I lost about 3 quarters of engine oil in a less than 3000. After this unfortunate incident took place I have been keeping my eye on oil level. Later on I took a car to authorized Toyota dealership. After checking a car they diagnosed an oil leak, I fixed it, however problem still exist. My car still uses way too much oil, which make it unsafe to drive since I have slight idea when oil could disappear while operating a vehicle.
For many months I have been experiencing excessive oil consumption soon after car being serviced. Less than 2 weeks oil has depleted. Causing engine not to start or stop in the middle of traffic than can cause a major accident or a possible fire because no oil. Therefore affecting other parts of the car eventually. Toyota has released extended warranty and knew about this matter for a few years now. But are telling its customers they are working on putting part together to replace those parts at their expense. However, as customers, we have not received dates of when our vehicles will be fixed.
Tl- the contact owns a 2007 Toyota Camry. The contact stated that the vehicle experienced excessive oil consumption. The contact stated that every 750 - 950 and uses a quart of oil. The vehicle had not been repaired. The contact received a recall for the issue under Toyota recall program. However the parts to repair were unavailable. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The vehicle failure mileage was 117,000. Kh.
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.
As I was driving my 2007 Camry, the car just cut off. Prior to cutting off, the battery light flashed and the care hesitated. I waited a few minutes and it crank back up but sputtered. Then the car ran fine. Also, the car is burning a great deal of oil.
Excessive oil consumption.
I am one of many complainents that have excess oil consumption with this car. I am using at least 1 quart evey 1,000 miles.
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.
