Engine Oil Leaking problems of the 2007 Toyota Camry
Eight problems linked to engine oil leaking have been reported for the 2007 Toyota Camry.
Engine Oil Leaking problem #1
The vehicle having this issue was a 2007 Toyota Camry. I have been having problems out of my 2007 Camry for over about a year and a half now. Probably after 2-3 months of getting my oil changed, I have having to put more oil in it between oil changings. I have been to 2 different dealerships and an automachanic shop in which no one has seen any oil leaks. What I have noticed when my oil light comes on, it is harder for me to stop my vechile. When I check my oil, it's almost nothing in there. I have seen other complaints related to this and this may be something that Toyota need to look in to immediately. I did not have this problem with my 05 Camry and if there is no oil leak, there shouldn't be a reason I have to put oil in my car in between oil changings!. It was Friday, November 18, 2011 when this engine oil leaking issue occurred.
Engine Oil Leaking problem #2
The vehicle involved was a 2007 Toyota Camry. I was driving the car as usual and noticed red engine oil light came on when I brake for a traffic light. Checked the oil level when I got home and realized there was no oil on the dip stick at all! I ended up putting in about 2 qts of oil to return it to an acceptable level. After researching for the problem, I found out there was a service bulletin for exactly the same problem and basically the engine needed to be rebuilt in order to fix the problem. Seems like Toyota hasn't been honest about their products potential problems lately. Please pressure Toyota to issue a recall for this problem. Otherwise I will never buy any Toyota product again. At the same time, I recalled my dealership, where I purchased the maintenance package from, had previously suggested that oil pan could have been leaking oil. I went under the car, and there was no sign of leakage at all! the dealership always knew about the service bulletin and was trying to misguide me!. The failure date was Jan. 3, 2013.

Engine Oil Leaking problem #5
The vehicle involved was a 2007 Toyota Camry. 2,000 miles after an oil change I noticed that my oil light would come on sporadically. I checked the oil and it was three quarts low. The car only hold four quarts of oil, so this was especially concerning. A mechanic checked out my car and said that there were no leaks, everything was still factory sealed, and he didn't know why it was consuming so much oil. I had an oil change 1000 miles later, and 2000 miles after that I was low on oil again! according to things I've read, this car consumes roughly 1 quart of oil every 1,200 miles it is driven. This should be fixed by Toyota. This engine oil leaking issue occurred Wednesday, February 15, 2012.
Engine Oil Leaking problem #6
The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Toyota Camry is 4T1BK46K47_. 2007 Toyota Camry with 2gr-fe v-6 engine had a failed vvti pressure pipe assy. Major oil leak developed which caused a loss of engine oil. No warning lights came on. Dealer replaced with the same part number 15707-31030 with the rubber connection instead of the updated all metal part number 15772-31030. I had 56335 miles on the vehicle so it was under warranty but now I am concerned about this event occurring again after another 56000 miles. I went on the internet and now realize that this problem exist on many of the Toyota vehicles with this type engine. I feel there should be a recall issued by Toyota before someone gets hurt. (fire, broke down on the side of road and another vehicle crashes into you etc. ). It was Jun. 20, 2009 when this engine oil leaking issue happened.
Engine Oil Leaking problem #7
The vehicle involved was a 2007 Toyota Camry. VIN of the vehicle was 4T1BK46K07_. The vvt-I line from bank 1 failed and oil leaked all over my driveway. The car was 4. 3 quarts low. No specific action took place to cause this other than a defective part/design from Toyota. The "fix" was a replacement pipe sub assembly (p/n 15707-31030). Apparently there is a metal replacement assembly but they put another rubber pipe into my car. Let's hope it doesn't have again and actually cause some damage. This engine oil leaking problem happened on 10/10/2009.
