Toyota Camry owners have reported 168 problems related to engine burning oil (under the engine and engine cooling category).
90,000 and now burns 1 qt oil every 1200 miles. Oil light comes on at 3 quarts low. Shouldn't it come on well before that? like one qt low.

The contact owns a 2016 Toyota Camry. The contact stated that the engine burned an excessive amount of oil and emitted a burning odor. Once the engine was started, the contact noticed oil leaking from the engine. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 12,000.
Excessive engine oil consumption. Only 1 liter of engine oil came out during my last engine oil change at 65,000 miles even after I put in a liter at 64,500 miles because the red low engine oil pressure light came on and I checked the dipstick to see that almost no engine oil was in my car. I'm currently at 67,000 miles and the red light came on again, so I added one more liter of engine oil after checking the dipstick and practically nothing registered. I need to get it fixed, but the Toyota dealer says nothing is wrong with my car/VIN, so I can't get the necessary parts even if they have them in stock. I called the 1-888-270-9371 Toyota customer assistance center and the representative said there's nothing she could do. Would like to fix the problem before my engine blows up.

My father-in-law is a auto mechanic. He changes the oil in my 2007 Toyota Camry every 2500-3500 miles. This is well before the recommended 5,000 mile service reminder light comes on. The car always burned oil but over the last year he has noticed that the car is burning significantly more oil. He recommended that I take the car to the Toyota dealer for a oil consumption test. I took the car to route 44 Toyota in raynham MA for the oil consumption test. I brought the car in with 147,212 miles for the test and a oil change. I was told to bring the car back between 148,212 - 148,512 miles. I noticed that after I original brought the car in for the the test, the car would idles at 800 rpm when stopped, after the oil change and test the car idle at 500-600 rpm. I brought the car back to route 44 Toyota for phase ii of the oil consumption test with 148,290 miles. The serviced advisor said that the car passed the oil consumption test and was only down 1/2 a quart of oil. The car burns more than a quart of oil every 1,000 miles but the dealer is telling me that it doesn't. I also noticed that the car was back to idling at 800 rpm when stopped.
Excessive oil consumption.
Excessive oil consumption, it uses about 1qt every 1000miles. Car has had a meticulous maintenance schedule, oil and filter changes every 3000 miles. Driven by a 65 year old woman.

Excessive oil consumption. Burns 1 quart within 1,500 of millage use. My current car millage is approximately 88,000 miles. This problem is shown through large puffs of black smoke from the exhaust, upon ignition. This is obviously not a "normal" situation. This issue may lead to a higher amount oil purchases and serious engine damage; it is very costly.
My Camry has check engine light on and oil needed to be changed once again in less than 3 months. Toyota has a recall on oil burning up but they checked last time and said it's okay. Evidently it's not. The mechanic recommended brake booster for the engine light issue which costs from $750-$1,200 which is hard to afford. This kind of issue can cost your life. Toyota needs to recall this and fix it since so many other people have the same issue.
I had problems with my cars oil consumption and was never notified from Toyota that there was a recall back in may 2015 for engine oil consumption repair. The shop is now telling me I have a blown piston from what they can hear. I have records that I never missed an oil change and even have proof from firestone complete care when my car was checked for oil leaks. There were none found. Toyota is refusing to repair my vehicle because they said it's too late to do an oil consumption test. I also sent Toyota proof of my oil changes from firestone dated 12/13/14, 4/11/15, 6/29/15, 8/22/15, 10/08/15, 11/14/15 and 1/3/16. My car was towed into community Toyota on 3/23/16.
Low oil due to overver-consumption: my car engine overheated and almost burnt because of oil overconsumption and I had to take the car and get oil change and got a report proving the very low oil level.
When I took my 2008 Camry in to the dealer for an oil change they found no oil in the car. They said I needed to take an "oil consumption test". They did something to my car and I drove for another 2000 miles and brought it back in. I was told it had failed the oil consumption test and that I would be put on a waiting list for repair which is covered by an extended warranty from Toyota. I was told the wait could be as long as six months and that in the meantime if my car runs out of oil and anything happens to the engine, the warranty would be void. My car might have oil in the morning and the be completely out of oil by the afternoon. I feel I should be given a loan car to drive while I am waiting for these repairs. I contacted Toyota directly in California and they would not approve this request. The parts needed for the repair are having to be manufactured and this takes months. My dealer told me there are people waiting since last year for repairs. I'm just asking for a car to drive while I wait so that I don't have to drive mine and risk voiding the warranty.

Toyota excessive engine oil consumption. Toyota issued a warranty enhancement notification on their Camry's - ze7 for "excessive engine oil consumption". My car was tested and failed the test in January 2016. Toyota has not repaired the vehicle and I am unable to get an appointment. Each time I call the dealership, they say Toyota does not have enough parts and there is a backlog of thousands of vehicles waiting to be repaired. Again today when I called, I was told they are just now repairing vehicles that failed the test back in March of 2015, failed the test 15 months ago, and that my vehicle will not be repaired for at least another year!! horrible customer service. If Toyota can prepare parts for new Camry sales, they should be able to prepare parts to repair vehicles they already sold. I have reported this problem to the local oxmoore Toyota dealership as well as Toyota consumer affairs. Many families are going through this same issue. Toyota needs to make this a higher priority and stop stringing families (customers) along. As consumers, what can we do?.
The contact owns a 2008 Toyota Camry. The contact stated that an unknown warning light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the engine had no oil. The technician diagnosed that the vehicle had experienced excessive oil consumption and confirmed the vehicle lost a quart of oil every 1,000 miles however a remedy had not been determined. The vehicle had oil added to the engine. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 86,000.
My car has an over oil consumption problem. Before the car is due for an oil change it is out of oil completely and due to this problem my car starting overheating and it cracked the head gasket. Toyota has a recall for the 4 cylinder models for this same issue but the 6 cylinder models are excluded. Despite the fact that I told them every time j went to their service center. Now I have to buy a new engine for the vehicle that I just bought.
Excessive oil consumption.
Tl-the owns a 2007 Toyota Camry. The contact stated that while driving at 35 mph, there was an noise coming from the passenger front side of the vehicle. The vehicle started to lose speed, the contact costed over to the side of the road. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the oil tube broke and burned the engine and it would needed to replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 45,300. Aw.
My vehicle not only got an extremely sticky dashboard but it also started burning oil in between oil changes. I had every recall taken care of as soon as I received it at & also kept up with all of the maintenance on my vehicle at a certified mechanic shop. I have all of my service records & witnesses. The end of 2015 my car started burning an excessive amount of oil in between oil changes. I ended up taking it to the mechanic & he was adding oil in between oil changes stating it was normal for it to burn oil. They also went with a thicker oil to try to fix it. I was also adding oil whenever it started getting low. Well my car overheated & cracked my head gasket. After going onto Toyotas website & typing my VIN number in, it states there aren't any recalls or service campaigns. I started saving money up to have my engine replaced so it's been sitting for months. After realizing I couldn't possibly afford it, I went online to get blue book values to sell it. I found out there were 2 tsbs covering my dashboard & my engine burning oil. They are saying something was mailed to me even though I know if I would have received anything I would have had it fixed immediately. After contacting an attorney who had a class action lawsuit against Toyota, he stated to me that nothing was mailed out to customers. After contacting 2 Toyota dealerships & Toyota service, they both ran my VIN # & it shows the warranty enhancement for both problems. Customers did not have access to this unless they called the dealership. Toyota service stated to me the only way they would replace anything to do with my engine is if an oil consumption test is run, well my engine is burned up. If my car was being worked on by a certified mechanic & I have service records proving all of my recalls & maintenance was done, they should honor that. There are lots of complaints from other owners stating the same things.
We have owned this car since new and followed the maintenance schedule religiously. The car is at 76,000 miles and yesterday I discovered that the car had burned through 2. 5 quarts of oil less than 3000 miles from the last oil change. Additionally the slave cylinder is leaking after the transmission was replaced at 23000 miles. Prior to the last 3000 miles, the car had never burned through oil between oil changes. Upon researching the issue I found that the previous generation of this engine had piston issues that Toyota eventually started fixing for free (after multiple class action suits). I took it in to my dealership and they recommended an entire engine overhaul to fix the pistons ($5000) of which they cover nothing. In addition they confirmed the slave cylinder was leaking and that the transmission would need to be overhauled a 2nd time ($2,600). Unfortunately I purchased this car in manual, and Toyota barely sold any of these transmissions which has resulted in no acknowledgement of any manufacturer defects. While I understand the transmission is poorly designed but considered a wear item, I can not understand how the pistons on a car with regular maintenance would give out at 76,000 miles.

The car made a ¿ding¿ sound when the breaks were applied while it was being driven. Upon checking, I noticed that the engine oil was extremely low - the dip stick showed no oil on it. I was alarmed and immediately added 3 quarts of oil - for oil to show up on the dip stick. At first, I figured that, maybe at the previous oil change, sufficient oil was not added. Soon thereafter, I got an oil change. About 3 months later I began to hear the ¿ding¿ sound again. I checked the oil and found that it was low and again it did not even register on the dip stick. I added 3 quarts of oil and proceeded to get an oil change; this time with tansky Toyota dealership. Three months later, the problem recurred. This time I was concerned and checked all the mail I had received from Toyota and noticed a warranty enhancement letter that stated - 2008 Camry¿s had an ¿oil consumption problem¿. I immediately went to tansky Toyota dealership and reported the problem and they began an ¿oil consumption test¿. After the test, they told me that there was no problem and that it was a normal occurrence. Clearly, I was not convinced with the report and challenged the adviser. He remained adamant that there was no problem and that the test result was normal; he told me to check and add oil as needed regularly. I contacted the general manager of tansky. She had the service manager, call back a week later. He never acknowledged that the car had an ¿oil consumption problem¿; rather that this is a normal occurrence and advised that the oil be replenished on a regular basis. I responded that, this was something that I have never experienced on my other Toyota cars; but my words fell on deaf ears. I am concerned that this issue will damage the engine; in addition the problem is a safety issue, should the oil be depleted while on long distance trips.
I was driving and my car's low engine oil light came on. I brought it to Toyota and this employee helped me pour in 2. 5 quarts of oil. This is in between the maintenance scheule. After getting an oil consumption test from Toyota, the employee told me that Toyota's standard is that we can lose a quart of oil for every 1200 miles. I brought my car back to them after 1,000 miles. They said that my car passed the test, I noticed that they added a quart of oil to my car. This is so not normal! I just received the extended warranty notice a couple of weeks ago. It defeats the purpose of notifying us if Toyota denies that our cars have the oil consumption problem. This powerful company is bullying everyone. A lawsuit does not help get our cars fixed. Please recall the cars. Otherwise, you are letting Toyota get away with bullying behavior. Thanks!.
Purchased a used 2008 Camry on 7/15/15. The car was serviced for the oil change right before I got it and I still had over 900 miles left before I hit the 3000 mile mark to have the oil change done. We checked the oil and it was completely dry. Not a drip on the dip stick! I think it's safe to say that this vehicle has a engine oil consumption issue.
