Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
I had a long trip coming up; I wanted to be sure my car was properly serviced and requested a good full service which cost me in excess of R12,000 ; I reported a 'shudder' of the engine in the morning after starting the car which was not there before the service; After the service manager and sales manager looked under the bonnet I was told it was nothing, that the car was in perfect order;no compression test was done - I was advised later by the mechanics who fixed the car that this should have been done; because it was evident to them from my description of the shudder I reported and their inspection that a gasket had been blown and this ought to have been picked up during the service; It took 2 weeks for us to get our car fixed for R22,000-00 by a local mechanic in George where we were stuck(we are from Fish hoek, Cape Town)(Toyota dealers were too busy) I have requested meetings now that I am back with Toyota dealer 10 times inclusing sms's but have received no joy; regards Juanita

SOURCE: Plugs for Camry 2000 4 cyl.
The plugs that are supposed to be in a 2000 4 cyl Camry are :
PK20TR11 Toyota P/N 90919-01194
The K16TR11 plugs fit a variety of models.
They are found in the following units:
95/98 T-100 V-6
95-04 Tacoma V-6
00/04 Tundra V-6
There is no question that your dealer installed the wrong plugs.
I would really appreciate a FixYa rating for the information that I have provided you. Thnaks in advance.

Hi my name is Juan and if you can wait one more day I am at work and I don't have my book with all the codes and once I get to it I can give you more recommendations but don't thrush what the dealer say they like to do this because they do thing that most of the costumers don't know nothing about cars and most people make this big mistake in say yes ok and let them do the repairs sometimes they tell costumers that there vehicles have 2 or more problems and this is not true sometimes is just a loose wire and they charge hundreds of dollars but they never tell you oh it was just a loose wire is 30dls so if you really need a cat-- replacement take your car to a muffler shop they can also do this job and for a lot lot less they charge around 300 to 400 hundred dls for this thanks and I'll let you know your code tomorrow

Theres a vaccum pipe tht fits on the brakes booster just under the mastercylinder probabely it may have popped out or the sensor could be faulty ....worth a try ;)

Not positive on this so consider only. The o2 sensor is what actually tells everything else what is going on with emmission and everything else adjusts to what info it relays. The o2 is also subjected to extreme temps and cooling cycles. So, instead of spending money on no answer diagnostism give replacement of o3 sensor so consideratio. If you choose to replace, wd40 and let exhaust cool down. Good Luck.

It seems that you have a loose wire, bad connector or perhaps the main computer itself that is causing a problem If the shop is not seeing any codes, or codes come and go, likely I'm right...but someone is going to have to actually do some intensive testing to find the real cause. You can likely get another computer from a local scrapyard far cheaper than what the dealer will charge you...as far as wiring, you need a good accurate schematic a good volt/ohmeter and lots of time to trace wiring. When checking connectors test the pin, then probe the wire going into the pin...often the problem is where a wire meets the backside of the pin, either corroding or breaking..This also applies to any modules such as the security system...what you see on the dash does not always tell you that connection to components is good. This is not a "fix, but rather, a direction to go in. (exactly what I"d need to do if I was there)
Right now, everything is suspect including fuel system, till you rule it out!!!
