Leaking struts on 2007 Camry

Was just told by my dealer that I have 3 leaking struts that they will replace under warranty - but I have to pay for a wheel alignment. I get really concerned when such an 'old car' problem is showing up so soon. So much for Toyota quality!

    I didn't insert a photo- so not sure where it came from...

    And I'm not talking about the struts lasting forever- but I only have 48,000 kilometers on the car. As for an occasional problem with quality control - but I have 3 duds. I am grateful this is happening on warranty - the internet is full of people that were not so lucky. I just don't think they should be failing so soon.

    You show a picture of a 1995 and state the struts are leaking and they will replace them on a 2007? I'm confused. However if they designed the struts to last forever you could not afford the car, also they have no control over parts that they do not make, the struts are made by another manufacture and parts fail sometimes and they don't know it because all parts only 10 percent are checked for quality control. so bad ones slip threw thel look ok feel ok they have no ideal they are going to go bad. And the price of a 4 wheel alinement is far cheeper than replacing the 3 struts the price of the parts and labor are not cheep. Be glad they are doing it they are losing money on the deal. Remeber have you ever made a mistake? they happen.

no you do not! this is a congame! unless your struts do not return to full ride height in one two two bounces when you push on the front of your hood you do not need to replace them. they wear out just like shocks

Loosen the tensioner pulley to remove the belt. It is the one that has a long bolt running through it. Once you remove the old belt, install the new one using the appropriate diagram from the above two links. Readjust the tension using the bolt you loosened to remove the old belt.

i hope this helps

What engine size? how many miles on the vehicle?

1: Leaking Water pump - How do I notice this in the car ?

Typically you will see a lot of dried up coolant around the water pump. If the coolant level gets low enough it will cause the vehicle to over heat and potentially do a lot of damage.

Water pumps are extremely common on these years.

2. Under Steering components it says Rack is Leaking, Passenger bellow torn open.

The rack is the part that turns the wheels left and right. If a bellow is torn and there is fluid coming out of it than the seals in the rack have gone bad. Eventually enough fluid will leak out and cause the power steering to no longer work and possibly ruin the power steering pump.

3. LF Strut /stunt is seeping.

It means that the oil on the strut is starting to leak out. The strut is what absorbs the bumps in the road and holds your tires down on the road. Eventually the strut will loose its ability to do this and the tires will start to cup. It is not uncommon for struts to show signs of leaking and is usually the first indicator that the strut is starting to fail.

Hope that helped.

The rear struts on my newly purchased 89 toyota camry deluxe wagon make noise, car sat for 9 months any way to save them


No, the rear struts will have to be replaced if they make noise and it bothers you.

From a safety point of view, if they are leaking or fail the 3 bounce test after pushing down on the bumper, then they should be replaced.

I have a 2007 Camry and the check engine came on for one day then shut off. When hooked up to a computer it had a code for ECM and I was sent to the dealer. I was told it was under warranty but Toyota said...


The Toyota Factory Warranty for the Engine Control Module (the ECM) is 8 years/80,000 miles; from the date of first use.

Your ECM should be a covered item.
