I have taken fairly good care of my car throughout the time I have had it which is almost 10 years but the mileage is only at 130,000. I was driving one day and the car completely turned off but I had never had anything like this happen before, even never had any significant problems with the car so this came as a surprise. I had just had the oil changed about 2 weeks prior and had regular maintenance done at that time as well. I took the car to my mechanic and they believed they knew what the problem was since the check engine light was appearing. They fixed said problem but they realized the car was still displaying the check engine light and also revving. They suggested I take the car to the Toyota dealer so they could read what was happening and why the check engine light was on and the car was not running properly. They ended up diagnosing that one of the cylinders was misfiring and that the engine needed a complete overhall/replacement. The estimate given was $6000 for the engine (this site did not accept this amount) and another amount which I can't recall for the labor. I have not yet decided what I will do but wanted to look up any engine recalls or issues others were having with their Camrys and came upon this site.

My car is dying when is running and the steering wheel get lock and doesn't matter what speed I go everything turns off so please let me know what it coud be because doesn't show any check engine light or anything please help.
In July 2016 I began to notice my car was struggling to maintain it's power. When I drove the car and stepped on the gas in wasn't getting much power. When in traffic or stopped at a traffic light it would stall when trying to drive off and then the check engine light would come on. I brought my car to Toyota service center and they worked on my car for several days. They were able to get the check engine light of and remedy the problem but could not determine the cause. In December 2016 I started to experience the same problem. I was losing power and the car would stall when at a complete stop, it was right after the check engine light came on. I brought my car back to Toyota for servicing and they had a difficult time determining the cause but came to a conclusion that it was a sensor code. I followed their advice for servicing and paid for the the sensor code to be replaced. Now we're here in March 2017 and I'm having the same problem. The same pattern where the car struggles to gain power and when I drive to to stop in traffic the car begins to stall. It is right after the check engine light comes on. I returned to Toyota for the problem but hey could not diagnose the problem. My car is being returned without a cause.

When I was driving the vehicle I noticed when I get to a certain speed the check engine light start to flash until I slow down or the vehicle won't move until I park it turn it off for a few minutes and then turn it back on. So I took it to the dealership and they told me I need a new engine.
I was driving the Camry when I reached a complete stop my check engine light came on, didn't really notice any change, two days later I notice gas consumption has increased. I took the Camry into dealer, dealer diagnosed the check engine to be a faulty O2 sensor. Replaced O2 sensor and drove off to pick up my kids from school, as we are driving home, I came to a traffic light, I stopped and check engine light and abs light came on idle was disrupted briefly. I proceeded and when trying to stop car the brake pedal had become very tight to were I had to stomp on brakes with all my might to get car to stop. Drop kids off at home waited 15 minutes and started vehicle, abs light was off but check engine remained on, brake pedal was almost back to normal. I drove car to dealer again, the dealer said it is a faulty brake booster which is allowing too much air into system which in return signals for more fuel to be pumped to compensate vacuum leak. Brake booster not covered under extended warranty, and very costly 1,363. 16 parts, labor and taxes, not counting the 4 day rental. This concerns me because I beleive this to be a safety issue, if it were my wife driving the Camry with my kids she would not be able to stop the vehicle without any warning. Toyota needs to make this a safety recall before something tragic happens. I looked at Toyota forums and it seems I'm not alone, brake booster for several other Toyota models have gone bad, after 100,000 miles some at 70,000. 2007 Toyota Camry seems like a horrible guinea pig car.
The contact owns a 2003 Toyota Camry le. The contact was traveling 45 mph, the check engine light illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The technician determined that the bolt connected to the intake valves to the engine had become loose and allowed coolant to run on to the exhaust. As a result, exhaust fumes emitted into the vehicle. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 180,000.

The is a service bulletin regarding the replacement of the catalytic converter and reprogramming the ecu. I don't think Toyota notifies current owners of free work to be done that is not an actual recall. Instead they wait to see who finds out on their own. The service bulletin TSB 2404 dated 07-01-04 covers the replacement of the catalytic converter and reprogramming the ecu to resolve the problem. It mentions the smell of sulfur from the exhaust and was apparently the only reason most people had it checked out. My wife's car has had the smell of sulfur for a few years now, but since we don't make it a habit of making our car exhaust smell pleasant we never thought anything of it. Now, the check engine light is on and the catalytic converter needs to be replaced but her car is over the 8 year, 80,000 mile limit of the TSB. If we were notified of Toyota's design error earlier and had the catalytic converter replaced and the ecu reprogrammed for free, we would not be looking at a $1000 repair bill in our future. We should not have to pay for Toyota's error, we already paid for the car.

I used the date of 2/23/2013 because that is when the problem became full blown but about 2 months before that date the car began surge when I put the car in gear after being parked and while at a stop sign. It sounded then and still sounds like a fly wheel or something under the hood is running at a very high rate of speed. If I had not had my foot on the brake it felt as though I would have gone forward into the car ahead of me. Finally on 2/23/2013 the car started surging and then hesitating non-stop. The check engine light came on and began to blink so I crept back home with fear. When the car hesitates it feels as though it loses power and there's a backfiring sound in the rear. I took the car to aaa, they did a diagnostic on the computer and I had the ignition coil and spark plugs changed but the problem still exists. The surging and hesitation happens when the car is in gear (both drive and reverse) but not in neutral or park and it is constant. I have a fear that either the car will surge ahead while driving on a highway and I will cause an accident or be killed because the car may just completely stop. I contacted Toyota corporate office on 2/28/2014 to see if there was a recall and to ask if they were aware of the problem. The representative said no to both questions, but I see that's no true.

The vehicle experienced catastrophic engine failure. A hole has appeared on the side of the engine. The oil level on the engine was and is full up. The coolant level was full up. No warning indicator lights were in evidence on the dashboard prior to and during the failure. All maintenance was current and most was performed by the Toyota dealer. The mechanic that inspected the vehicle after it was towed to his facility indicated that it was the second year 2000 Camry that he has seen with a catastrophic engine failure this year. Weeks prior to the failure the check engine light and the air bag light illuminated for a short time. They reset themselves prior to the mechanic examining the vehicle and he could find nothing wrong. There was no trouble data recorded in the computer.
When stationary at traffic light or stop sign. When a/c is turned on and brake pedal is depressed the entire car is drastically shaking an vibrating beyond controlability. When gear is in neutral the heavy vibration is gone away. Was told by service manager that this is an normal behavior of all cars past 40,000 miles. Was told that I would have to let the vehicle learn my driving habits again since the new throttle body component was installed. Once the unit was installed correctly again engine lights kept coming on thus returning back to the dealership. Took 3 attempts to complete the engine lite issue but the violent shaking and vibration is still going on.
My son drove the car on highway about 10 minutes at 10pm and he saw the engine light on and the can was a little bit shaking. After about 5 minutes, the car speed slowed down quickly and there were smoke from front hood. He pulled the car by shoulder, then car was totally dead. The mechanic technician gave a report after checking the car that "waterpump failed and engine ran too long without coolant and melted engine". What a shame the Toyota car quality it is as I was always regularly maintained my car by Toyota dealer.

On Tuesday, 7/12/2011, I needed to have my 2000 Toyota Camry inspected to get the renewal sticker. I took the car to r&d automotive here in asheboro because a check engine light had come on. Two of the codes would not clear. They had to replace the evaporative emission system canister at a cost of $300. 00, not including labor, in order for the car to pass inspection. I have found online that Toyota has had/is having a problem with these canisters. Therefore, I request to be reimbursed $300 for this canister.

2011 Camry with 3000 miles. Going uphill, car seemed to stall-as if running out of gas. I let go of gas and car appeared to be ok. Half a second later, I pressed the gas pedal and car stalled. Dash lights came on, power steering no longer worked. I put car in neutral and tried to start it, would not start. Came to a stop, removed key from ignition and then tried to start care. Car started but sputtered at idle. Car had 3/4 tank and check engine light never came on-other than when dash was lit up from stalling. Took to dealer. Ran diagnostics on it and said everything was ok. They were not able to duplicate issue.
