I would not bother. Usually this is valve guides/seals wearing out, but if that is the only problem, I would not worry about it. When it sits, the oil in the rocker arm area is leaking down into the cylinders, then when you start it, it burns off.
I would not do anything until you start using a fair bit of oil, or something breaks.

Start car- blue smoke comes out. Using some oil- not too much. Does it need a valve seal job? Toyota Camry LE 2000 4 cylinder. 200,000 miles on it.


With 200,000 miles, it wouldn't pay to just do the valves
& seals,if that was the only issue

Cylinder are too worn by now

Drive it for a year or so, than replace or rebuild it

1993 v6 toyota camry burns a quart of oil about every 70 miles at the least. Car smokes black smokes comes out of the exhaust. Car hesitates sometimes like it does not want to go when you mash on the gas....


If its burning oil the smoke will be blue, if its not blue then you have a leak somewhere, put some cardboard under your engine overnight and check it in the morning. if its leaking it might be an easy fix, but that depends on where its leading from. If your burning oil the piston rings need to be replaced, you can do it yourself with some special tools, but its best to leave that to the pros and it won't be cheap.

Where do I find the fuel filter on my 2001 toyota solara 4 cyl??


The fuel filter on a 2002 Camry is an "In-Tank Filter". This means the filter is in the gas tank and is integrated with the fuel pump. In order to replace the filter, you must remove the tank and disassemble the fuel pump.
Toyota's service schedule, which can be found at ToyotaOwnersOnline.com, does not list the fuel filter replacement through 120K miles (as high a the schedule goes).
Thank you for using Fixya and hope this helps.
