#1 - Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 2007 Toyota Camry
The car 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!. This engine oil leaking problem happened on Friday, November 18, 2011.

#2 - Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 2007 Toyota Camry
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!.

Please see the information below, and let me know if you can help me pursue this matter. At the very least, I would like to file a complaint against Toyota and lucas oil. > attorney comment: the website for lucas oil regarding its stop leak product says that it repairs worn seals without risk of damage. >
>attorney comment: this situation presents an unusual issue ie the liability of the oil leak product for not warning against use of the product in a car prone to sludging. >
> I added 1 quart of lucas engine oil stop leak (purchased at pep boys) to the engine oil of my 1997 v-6 Toyota Camry, which caused a rod to be thrown, killing the engine. (prior to this, the engine was running fine, but I did have a slight engine oil leak problem. ) the estimate to replace the engine is $3,171. 91. I am the original owner of the vehicle, which has 177,559 miles on it. Upon searching the internet, I discovered that my car engine is prone to sludge and sludge damage due to design error. Had I been aware of this, I never would have added this product. As it is, neither Toyota nor lucas oil posted any warnings about using this product in my car engine. As such, I contacted both Toyota and lucas oil for some relief - both companies denied my request. This engine oil leaking issue occurred Jan. 9, 2011.

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.

#10 - Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 2007 Toyota Camry

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. It was Oct. 10, 2009 when this engine oil leaking issue happened.
#11 - Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 2007 Toyota Camry
The vehicle was a 2007 Toyota Camry. There was crash involved with this problem. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 4T1BK46KX7_. At the speed of less than aprox 15-20 miles on a turn, car spun off and lost control. Caused wheels to crash into curb, and severely damaged. Noticed oil on the tire surface. Moved car out of toad way. Car spilled lot of oil. The Toyota dealer assessed, and told us that the oil hose (vvt-I) has ruptured, causing oil leak. Toyota later informed that there is a so called "limited campaign" to replace these hoses. They are denying that the oil leak was the cause of accident. They have not done any thorough investigation. The written response from does not even satisfactorily explain their reasoning for denying claim. It was Feb. 4, 2010 when this engine oil leaking issue occurred.
#12 - Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 2004 Toyota Camry
My 2004 Toyota Camry engine died 10/ 22/07 w/59,615 miles on it. 13464 miles @ purchase-I was told that it was a program car w/extended warranty=6 yrs/100k miles. Found the window sticker when I traded it in. No problems with the car prior to the incident. Coming home from a trip, power steering lost some functionality; a service light came on; my husband put power steering fluid in; we headed to the nearest Toyota dealer. En route we lost all power steering & ability to accelerate, engine began to smoke; car cut off. The dealership took 5-6 weeks to replace the engine. Doubt old parts are available. On a couple of occasions incorrect parts were ordered/received. Picked the vehicle up~12/1/07; 59620 miles on it. While awaiting repairs dealerships/corporate offices could only advise the car may be under basic warranty. Took it to the dealership where purchased the next business day. Smelled smoke and wanted assurance a new engine was put in as promised & that there were no other problems. They made $900+ worth of added repairs-rear main seal oil leak; axle boot leak. It had 59949 miles on it. At that point I didn't want it back. I wanted Toyota to assume responsibility for selling a lemon. My main concern: is there a serious safety hazard with 2004 Toyota Camry models as seen in previous years (engine oil sludge)? secondly, did something else cause this incident? the dealership where I purchased this Camry should have responded to my dissatisfaction; they should have acknowledged/offered some incentives for selling me a lemon. Their only concern, make another sale. Requested a call from/audience with the owner. Hasn't happened. I needed a car and believed this was aberration with respect to Camry models' performance. Not sure that they'll keep me as a customer. I thank god we had no accident, no known injuries. Please let me know if there's litigation this make/model; I'd like to join the litigants. I can give you my VIN number at your request. Thanks. The failure date was Monday, Oct. 22, 2007.

#16 - Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 2001 Toyota Camry
We bought a brand new 2001 Toyota Camry ce in 2000 and were pretty comfortable with the vehicle until something happened to us about 8 weeks ago. On Jan 22, we were driving on I 15 freeway south from la back to las vegas. About after 30 minutes on the road I heard something sounding like a crack under the vehicle (last only about one second). I thought the vehicle might hit a rock underneath and slowed down trying to figure out what exactly happened. Then in about 3 minutes the vehicle lost the power. I turned on the emergency flash light and pulled the vehicle to the roadside. I could see that the engine oil was leaking out badly. After lots of hassles the vehicle was towed to crown Toyota dealer shop in ontario. The next day morning their service manager called to tell me that nothing indicated that the vehicle hit a rock since there was no damage outside of the engine. To the best of his judgment the engine was damaged from inside. He said something from inside of engine could fall down and knocked the engine that caused the leaking. Soon after that my insurance company denied my claim stating that they talked to the crown Toyota dealer shop and concluded the accident was caused by the mechanical failure of the engine, which is not covered by the insurance policy. Last month I had the engine replaced in an auto shop and was told the same thing about the cause of the problem. From pictures attached one can see a big hole knocked out on engine(see attached picture). It is a real surprise to me since the vehicle has run only 79,500 miles and we gave it maintenance on regular bases as required. By this letter we request an investigation of what engine defect caused the failure and an explanation from Toyota company. At the same time we reserve the right to ask for compensations for the loss caused by this mechanical failure. This complaint has been sent to national customer relation of Toyota moto sales. The failure date was Jan. 22, 2011.

#18 - Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 1999 Toyota Camry
The vehicle involved was a 1999 Toyota solara. We went to the dealer today, armed with an amazing array of internet information. We were initially sent to the main receptionist who when asked who's handling the sludge problems? at first didn't seem to understand the meaning of the word, then when my fiance pulled out a whole packet of information and put it in front of her and said this problem, which I'm sure you're aware of she then aid, you took me off guard and then stopped the gsm or sm and asked him to talk to us. When in his office, we said, we bought a car from you and have sludge and the car has sat a month, he referred us to the repair department. We walked though the hall and over to repair and spoke with the manager of that department. He asked for the VIN and the mileage, after we said we have a bad sludge problem. He pulled the vehicle up in the computer then asked if anyone had removed the intake to see if it was sludge. We answered that of course we had taken it to two different mechanics, first because we thought it was an oil leak, burning and causing all the smoke. Both mechanics knew immediately that it was sludge, although the one was nice enough to run diagnostics to prove there was no leak. We were told the car could not be driven. After telling the manager that two mechanics had seen it, he asked if it could be driven to the dealership. We told him, since it is shuddering and smoking like a freight train, both mechanics advised that the whole engine would seize up, and we would not drive it. He then gave us a number to a towing company for the dealership that would tow at no cost to us to the dealership and agreed to look at the car tomorrow. When I asked what it would cost me, he said nothing, if it is sludge. We'll see. If this man is as honest as he seems, he's not only rare, but amazing. Of course, he could call in a day or two and say it was my fault and want oil change receipts. Unfortunatlly for the dealership, I have them. This issue happened on 07/15/03.

I had received a letter from Toyota corporation months prior to the incident, warning of oil sludging/gelling problems with this car model. The letter stated that all repair costs would be covered for damages caused by oil sludging/gelling. The Toyota mechanics informed me that the engine appeared clean - no oil sludging. But, they did not know why the engine blew. They informed me that the oil might have been low. However, I had just had an oil change performed two months prior to the incident and was not informed of an oil leak, nor did my oil indicator light ever come on. Even though they couldn't explain what caused the engine to blow, they would not cover any costs of repair. This issue happened on 08/09/03.

#21 - Engine Oil Leaking problem of the 1998 Toyota Camry
The vehicle was a 1998 Toyota Camry. Driving the Camry down the interstate when oil light came on. Within 2-3 miles I was able to pull off and as I rolled into a gas station the engine began knocking. When towed to a Toyota dealer they said the engine was ruined but claimed it wasn\\'t related to the well-known oil sludge problem. The oil had been changed every 3000-5000 miles and neither leaked nor used oil. The dealer had no explanation why the engine would so suddenly be robbed on oil that it would throw a rod and be ruined. I have since learned the engine has given so many problems that Toyota discontinued it (the 2. 2 4liter). Since I had to have a used engine put in (Toyota wanted $5300!!) I have no assurance that this engine won\\'t do exactly the same thing!!. The failure date was Sat., Feb. 15, 2003.

The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 4T1BG22K2W_. I own a Toyota Camry 1998 model. The engine oil leaks non-stop. Several months back I received a notice of class action settlement with the Toyota company. It stated that all Toyota Camrys 1998 had an engine oil leak defect, and as per the class action settlement I could take my car to a Toyota dealership and they would fix this problem at their cost. Also, that if I had incurred any costs trying to have this problem fixed on my own, Toyota will pay such costs to the owner. Accordingly, I took my car to the dealership. They took the copy of the notice from me and informed me that it does not apply to my car. I was told that they could check and fix the problem, but I would have to pay for it. If this was the case, then why was I sent a notice in the first place to take my car to a dealership for the problem fix? this has been a very frustrating and embarrassing experience.
