Toyota Camry gearbox whine

Answered by CarsGuide 18 Oct 2013

Final drive gear whine is something many owners complain about in Toyotas. It's usually a result of the gear cutting process and there is not much you can do about it, except replace the gears. You could try different gear oil, which might make it a little quieter.

Toyota paint defects

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Aug 2013

It is likely to be a problem with the clear coat, but you need to consult a paint specialist to determine the exact cause of the problem. It's quite common with cars of that vintage. I'm not surprised that Toyota is refusing to come to the party; your car is eight years old. If you want, you could approach Toyota directly and request they help with the cost of repainting the spoiler, or you could save a lot of heartache and distress and get it repainted yourself.

Answered by CarsGuide 9 Aug 2013

We have seen other reports of the issue, which is apparently caused by an internal baffle in the manifold coming loose and vibrating. To save money you could try and find a secondhand manifold.

Camry Altise blown head gasket

Answered by CarsGuide 17 May 2013

You are assuming the blown head gasket is related to the previous cooling system failure, but you don't know that to be the case. Until you know the cause of the problem you can't mount a case against Toyota. Once you have established the cause of the head gasket failure you can then decide on whether it's best to approach Toyota.

Auto transmission shuddering noise

Answered by CarsGuide 22 Mar 2013

You're clearly not getting anywhere with this dealer, so I would seek advice from a specialist in automatic transmissions on the problem and, depending on that advice, take the information back to the dealer and demand it be fixed. Our information is that it's unlikely to be a converter problem.

Battery warning light flashing

Answered by CarsGuide 15 Mar 2013

From your description it would seem that the battery is not the problem, and because the light is flashing on and off, I would be looking for a loose connection.
