I have just purchased the car one month ago as a preowned one. After about 15 days the oil lid turned on while I was moving to my school. I filled in the car with an original oil. I checked the oil stick after I left the car for 4 hours and it was at the max level. Two weeks later, I checked again the oil in the car using the oil stick and it was below min tick. I have already replaced the valve gasket cover but the same issue still there. By the way, the car doesn't show any black or blue smoke in the exhaust and there is no sign of oil leak on the engine outside body. The car is no longer on warranty. I am frusterated and I don't know what to do!.

Went to have my oil check because my engine light came on / my mechanic check the oil stick there was no oil in the car at all. So he check to make sure there was no oil leak there was none. That is when we went to the web site and found out about the oil complication problem. Touch my car to scott clark Toyota and they said there was a recall on my car. They had me drive it a couple of weeks until I reached the mileage they needed for me to get it tested again took it back on 7/23/16 it passed the test and they told me that it was good and that it was only lossing a quart of oil . They would not fix my car because it passed the test. Now I have a car that I need to have repaired because I do not have the money to get another car. With me driving the car with the oil light coming on was my sign to stop and have it checked. If I would have not the engine would have blowned. So I need to know what I can do to now to get these people to fix my car ASAP. They also told me that it would be six months down the road before I could get it repaired because they already had a backlog of cars that are waiting to be repaired. This was before they let me know it had passed the test. Brad bennick of scott clark toyato told me I could drive my car another 200,00 more miles with this oil problem. I know that if you have a oil leake there's know way you can continue to drive a car with that problem. So I need someone to help me in this matter. Scott clarks is a place I thought cared about there customers but I will not be buying another car from them or telling anyone to purchase a car from this company. So what should I do? this happen on 6/11/16 and took my car in on 6/13/16 for the first oil test.

I purchased my car used about 4 months ago I checked the oil shortly after purchase and it was nearly full. I recently had low oil engine pressure warning light come on. I checked my oil and had barely anything left. My car is somehow going through about a quart of oil every thousand miles or so and yet there is no evidence of a leak in my driveway.

My 2009 Toyota Camry is consuming an excessive amount of oil. During my last regular oil change, the dip stick was dry. I asked the technician to ensure there were no leaks and everything was tight and he assured me it was. I began googling the issue and learned this is a common problem with my year/make/model. It is consuming oil at an alarming rate.

My 07 Camry runs completely out of oil before it's time for it to be changed. I have had the car checked for oil leaks and has passed each time. After researching this issue I have found that the more miles on the car the faster it runs the oil out and with that being said I now have engine damage. Not to mention this car has been the absolute worst. I put my visors down one time and had to take them off because they wouldn't go back up. The power controls in my car don't work. I also found out tonight that there was a recall on the gas pedal in this death trap that happened before I owned it that I was never informed of but knew something had to be wrong with it because it kept sticking!! I am not the only person dealing with this and find it outrageous that it has not been fixed. My children used to ride in that car!! it is a ticking time bomb and something needs to be done about this!!!!!!!.

I have recently experienced a severe oil loss in my 2007 Toyota Camry with 97000 miles. I have always completed timely scheduled oil changes and never have had an issue until two weeks ago. The firestone dealer where I have my vehicle serviced determined I had a severe oil loss and can't locate where my oil leak is originating from. I have since learned Toyota has a service bulletin about this issue and the local Toyota service dealer has not returned my calls. In addition there was a class action lawsuit filed in spring 2014 for this issue with numerous Toyota models.

Bad oil leaks. Mechanics couldn't find where leaks were coming from. Took it to another mechanic and he said that the head bolts are most likely stripped. I went online and found a lot of other owners of this vehicle with the same problem. And fumes were coming into the car. If this vehicle has this problem , why wasn't it recalled to be fixed. I can't get anyone to fix this problem. Toyota just wants to sell me a used engine for the same thing to happen again according to others owners who replaced the engine.

Discovered engine is consuming excessive oil, causing oil pressure light to flash on momentarily during a sudden quick stop. Engine has been maintained within prescribed intervals for oil changes using approved optional 0w20 oil. Now it appears to be consuming over 1 quart per 1500 miles. Haven't taken this problem to a dealer yet, but from what I'm reading in other complaints, Toyota has steadfastly refused to take responsibility for this issue. Unlike others, I have Toyota's full bumper-to-bumper warranty, good for 7 years or 10800 miles. I'm not sure even that would move Toyota, since they could simply stall until the vehicle purchased 6 years ago is out of warranty. The engine probably won't die completely until after then, as long as I keep the oil level where it should be. However, I shouldn't need to check the oil so often, when the service interval is supposed to be 5000 miles, there are no leaks, and I'm using amsoil, a premium synthetic oil.

My oil light blinked once on my way home. I checked the oil the next morning before starting the car and it showed no oil on the dipstick! we added 4 1/2 qts of oil. I had never been so much as a 1/2 qt low at oil change. There are no leaks. The oil light never stayed on as a warning. My motor could have conceivably burned up without my knowing there was anything wrong. My 5 year old vehicle is now using at least 1/2 - 1 qts of oil every 1200 miles. We have a 1999 Toyota Camry with 245,000 miles that only uses approx. 1/2 qt oil per 3,000 miles. After researching on the internet, I can see that mine is not a singular event. Toyota should be made to fix the problem.

Started my car, noticed oil lamp came on then off. Proceeded to drive and oil lamp light flashed again. Oil light came on at least a total of 5 times. Came to traffic light, came to a soft stop to observe traffic before attempting to turn right. Car then shut off and all indicators were on, such as, battery, engine light, oil light, and air bag. I proceeded to restart car. No problem with restart, oil light never came on again. I took car to Toyota dealership service department to find out why vehicle shut down and due to fear! Toyota employee told me they would do a diagnostic on my vehicle free of charge to find cause of shut down. Please note, I did an oil change oct. 15, 2013 and Nov 18, 2013 car shut down! after arriving at a Toyota dealership to have my car checked to find out why it simply shut down, then all of a sudden there was no time to do a check to find out what caused my car to shut down without warning. The manager gave me a very simple reason as to why and what caused it to shut down. Manager told me I have an oil leak inside the engine of my car. Manager stated I didn't have to buy a new engine, but I needed to do a 100-500 oil dip stick check. Why was the dip stick down to nothing in the first place? why was there no oil in my car? technician never put oil in my car. Toyota is responsible for damage to engine as a result of their mishandling of vehicle and making false statements regarding me. Toyota is responsible for stress on of my Toyota 2007 Camry engine. My life and that of others at risk because of Toyota. .

Vvti oil line rupture 2007 Toyota Camry w/ v6 engine we purchased this new at a local Toyota dealer. My wife is the primary driver w/ myself as the only other occasional driver. The vehicle has received regular maintenance although not at the dealership where purchased. Vehicle, at time of incident (11-15-13), had 50,893 miles. When my wife returned home from shopping she saw a trail of oil up the driveway and into the garage. The oil trail appeared to begin down the street near our home. When we restarted the engine, oil gushed from the passenger side of the v-6 engine. I checked the oil level and it was about 1 1/2 - 2 quarts low. Our Toyota uses no oil between oil changes. Oil had sprayed all over the passenger side of the engine, the undercarriage, and some of the exhaust system. An internet search revealed a vvti oil line problem with certain Toyota vehicles w/ a v-6 engine. A short rubber section of external engine oil line would leak or rupture. Ours ruptured with-out any warning lights or alarms. The next morning we had it towed to the dealership where purchased and they repaired and verified that the problem was the vvti oil line. They told me that the repair was not covered by Toyota and we had to pay. I found out Toyota did have a lsc 90-k phase two campaign that did cover this but it had expired. We were unaware of the problem. I called and complained to 2 levels of Toyota then wrote the office of the president torrance, CA. But they all said letters were sent out and the campaign had expired March 31, 2013. The president's office did offer a limited refund for future parts or service at Toyota dealers. This problem still exists and Toyota should not have an expiration date for repairing this serious problem. This problem can cause fires and ruin engines. Fortunately we only lost a small amount of oil and that shouldn't have damaged our engine.

I began noticing during my regular oil change maintenance at 3000-5000 miles, that closer to required oil change my oil light would engage during braking. I didn't think anything of it at first, but began noticing it at a consistent rate. When I had my oil changed at 90,000 miles the service person indicated I only had about 1 1/2 quarts removed from the car. I thought I had an oil leak of some sort, but I never have had any significant discharge from my oil pan, oil filter and so forth in my driveway. I went to my son who is a mechanic, and he said he saw little sign of any leakage, and I must be burning it. So he suggested I get online, and look for similar incidents, and now I see 2007 is a popular year for this type of issue. I have yet to bring it to a dealers attention, and see no re-call or manufacturers problem advertised by Toyota.

Oil sign on dash was lighting up (on and off) - checked oil in vehicle - totally empty . No oil leaks ever ! have no idea where it went . I had last oil change around 3,000 miles ago. Last couple of times I had my oil changes done - service technicians stated that my engine oil was extremely low , and that they saw no leaks . I went on the internet and found scores of the same complaint , about the 2007 Camry , 4 cyl. . Judging by all of the complaints I've read it is quite apparent this is a major problem that has been brought to Toyota's attention . These vehicles should be recalled and properly fixed.

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!.
