Toyota Camry owners have reported 116 problems related to engine burning oil (under the engine and engine cooling category).
Car had no oil left in it after 5000 miles and just getting oil change at that time. Was told my 2. 4 engine is known to "eat" oil per service tech and Toyota is doing an "oil consumption test" on the engine after I put 1200-1300 miles on new engine oil. Car went through 4. 5 qts of oil in 5000 miles! not burning out exhaust and not leaking anywhere. Service tech advised this is known problem. According to them, after "oil comsumption test" if my car "eats" less than a quart in 1100 miles that is acceptable! that is not. I know 20 year old cars that dont burn or leak or "eat" oil at oil. This known issue with the Toyota 2. 4 engine should be recalled and owners given a new engine or compensation. I cannot keep putting oil in car every 1100 miles! Toyota needs to be held accountable for a defect they are aware of. I was lucky to not have taken my car on long trip and have engine seize up on me on highway causing a possible crash. Please help with this problem. I know others have similiar complaints with NHTSA and also other websites and wanted to bring mine to your attention also. Thank you very much!!.

I purchased my 2009 Toyota Camry in 2008 after graduating college. I have always serviced my car as required per the Toyota manufacturers guide to have it serviced every 5,000 miles. The last three or four times I had to take the car at least 500-1000 miles before the required service mileage. About 90% of the service maintenance was performed at the Toyota dealership. Per the Toyota service package, the technicians are suppose to do a through inspection of the car to notify any areas of concern to the customer. I read a TSB that was issued by Toyota in November 2011 regarding excessive oil consumption due to a defective seal or piston ring. Recently before I hit the road for vacation, I was checking my tire pressure and decided to check my oil levels. The car was not suppose to be serviced for another 500 miles and their was no oil on the dipstick. . Nothing came out. I took my car to the nearest jiffy lube and asked the mechanic to look under the engine to see if there was an external oil leak. The mechanic checked and said no oil was leaking on the outside. He told me there could possibly be engine oil burning up, which is why I pulled the Toyota TSB. This is very concerning because I wouldn't want my engine to lock up driving at a high speed down the freeway. Toyota should be held accountable for the manufacturing defect and should investigate the matter. There is a class action lawsuit against Toyota for the above matter and I will be sharing my story. Thank you.
At intermittent times, most noticeably while braking or turning or both, warning light and sound activates. Checked just recently, no oil on dipstick. Suspect excessive oil consumption manufacturer defect on my year and model which is not being addressed by Toyota.
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.
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.
It has 80,000 miles and burns excessive oil. I checked it yesterday and there was no oil touching the dipstick. It starts consuming oil two years ago and now it consumes 3 quarts between the oil changes.
Excess engine oil consumption. Engine oil keep disappearing. Have to add more oil every week or two (that's less than a 500 miles to burn a quart or 2 engine oil!) to bring it back within the acceptable level. There is no visible leaks, no blue smoke indication. It is dangerous if engine suddenly fail when driving. This seems a common manufacturing defect from Toyota (t-sb-0094-2az-fe engine oil consumption).
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.
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. .
This model of car has a manufacturer's defect in the pistons that is well documented in various resources, causing the engine to rapidly burn oil. . Read more...
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?.
I own a 2008 Toyota Camry and was told today that this make model and year cars have been having a excessive oil consumption problem with the engine. The dealership does not know where the oil is going and that I should watch this to make sure I do not run out of oil and burn up the engine. I have concerns about this since I travel almost 100 miles a day and bought this car for safety and longevity no matter how many miles are involved. My children and I could be left stranded which is a concern in this day and age. From what I am told this is an ongoing problem with this engine why is there no recall? keep in mind this is the same year of the whole accelerator pedal recall.

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.
Toyota engine excessive oil consumption. There is almost no engine oil left after driving about 1500 miles.
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.
2007 - 2009 Toyota Camrys have been noted to have excessive oil consumption issues. My Camry is burning approximately 2 qts every 3,000 miles. Per Toyota's request, my car has been routinely serviced by Toyota dealerships; however, no one has ever brought the known issue with my model year to my attention. The most I've ever heard, "your car was a little low on oil. " with a published service bulletin, Toyota should have notified all effected owners with this information. As the sole owner, and with 99,000 miles, my Camry is beyond their warranty, and will require an engine rebuild to mitigate the issue. This is a poor design by Toyota and is unacceptable.
