2008 Toyota Camry gas-cap door release is stuck; how do you release it?


Hi fellow,
Your problem has two options ;first, you have to inspect the interior wire that pulls the lock of the gas cap.If found cut you should replace it at the mechanic's. Secondly, once the wire remains uncut or undamaged by any reason, the lock itself might be jammed due to the rust or misuse. Therefore, you are advised to use some anti rust liquid it wil work. Good Luck.

What is the purpose of oil cap on valve cover


That is where you put the oil when you are low on oil or when you an oil change. When you open the hood you should see a oil dipstick. Make sure the car has been off for at least 5 to 10 minutes. Have a clean paper towel and remove the dipstick. make sure its the dipstick if you have an automatic transmission. trans fluid is red in color oil will be golden to dark black depending on how often you change the oil. wipe the dipstick off and at the end you will see a full mark near the end. Replace the dipstick back into the tube you removed it from and pull it out again, check the end where it says full. If there is oil up to the full mark your good, if not add oil through the oil cap hole in valve cover top. re-wipe the dip stick and check to see if full. Add oil as needed. If you keep up with your oil changes as required depending on the oil requirements. 10w30 regular oil is every 3,000 miles. Castrol synthetic oil is every 21,000 miles. Use a good oil filter. Consult your auto parts dealer.

Engine is running hot almost in red zone. I beleive it is the thermostat. Is that a good place to start?


I would start with the the radiator fan. Is it kicking on? With engine over heat it should be running hard.. (Dont poke fingers in there, might start any time) Try turn on heat to defrost and open front windows to dump heat, this should kick on the AC and 2nd fan and cool it off some, (as a quick temp fix to prevent boil over)
If fans do not run, check fan motor, disconnect fan harness and jump 12 volts to it. If it runs its good. Then there is a fuse and a relay in the elec box under the hood. check the cover for a guide or the owners manual. There is also an engine temp sensor, this may be attached to the thermostat cover. Unplug the wire and jump across the connectors with hot engine. If fan kicks on, the switch is bad.

If Fans are running, then consider thermostat. Will need replacing.

To replace thermostat follow this..
1.Buy a new thermostat, gasket and gasket sealant for your particular make, year and model car,at your local auto parts store.
2.With a COLD engine, open the radiator cap, but if its still warm, place a thick rag over the cap on the radiator and slowly turn it while listening for the pressure to be released. When it stops remove the cap completely.
3.Locate the thermostat by finding the two-inch thick black hose coming out of the top of the radiator. The hose will end somewhere on the top of the engine and it will be clamped onto the thermostat cover. The cover will have two bolts on each side.
4.Remove the hose by using the screwdriver or pliers to pull off the clamp. Some auto manufacturers use stainless steel clamps with a screw and some use a clip clamp. Twist the hose to loosen it from the thermostat cover. Use a spray lubricant if the hose is difficult to loosen. Be aware that a considerable amount of coolant will pour out of the hose when you take it off.
5.Loosen the two bolts on each side of the thermostat cover with an appropriate-sized ratchet socket or open-ended wrench. Lift the cover off and remove the thermostat.
6.Use a putty knife or scraper to remove the old gasket from the thermostat cover and cover base. Use a fine emery cloth to sand away any remaining traces of the gasket. Make sure the cover and cover base are smooth and clean or the cover will leak.
7.Drop the new thermostat with the spring mechanism down into the engine thermostat opening. Notice there is a narrow recessed area where the lip of the thermostat fits.
8.Spread the gasket sealant on the gasket side that makes contact with the engine. Place the gasket on the engine, making sure the bolt holes line up. Spread the gasket sealant on the edge of the thermostat cover also and replace the thermostat cover and screw the bolts in place.
9.Replace the radiator hose.
10.Wait for the gasket sealant to cure before starting the engine. Read the directions on the sealant package to determine how long the sealant needs to dry.
11.When dry, start the engine with radiator cap off and run it until it reaches the engine's normal operating temperature. Fill the coolant level to replace what is needed. Replace the rad cap. Check the thermostat cover and hose to make sure there are no leaks.
12. Done

On driverside of engine, oil leaking out around where I call the back cam ( one closet to firewall) at end. I am talking about opposite end from timing belt on engine. If I removed cap ( w/two star screws...


That seal typically comes with a pack that includes all the cam bearing seals and the valve covers seals. It very easy to replace. Remove the valve cover and discard the old seal, remove the old cam shaft bearing cap seals. Replace the bearing cap seals and the valve cover seal and replace the cap and cover. Tighten the bolts to about 30 lbs and that should resolve the problem.

Where is the oil filter ??


Open hood. Take off engine cover, 3 caps pop off with a screwdriver and the are 10mm nuts under that. Before you take off cover there's a vac line clipped in on the passenger side back of the cover- reach around, you'll feel it. Also remove the oil fill cap. When you lift the cover there is a tower shaped thing with a black plastic cap right in front of you- unscrew this and you'll find your oil filter. You DO want to replace the 2 o-rings on the cap. Pay attention to where the o-rings go.

Oh, and you had better be using 5w40 full synthetic oil...

When i open my gas cover i hear air coming out.


I had a similar problem with a Grand Am one time. My check engine light would come on until I removed the gas cap and replaced it, after a couple minutes driving the light would come back on. My problem was a faulty gas cap. I would suggest taking it to the auto parts store and having them check the error code for you. Most will do this for free and point you in the right direction.
