*Consumer Suggestion: BAD FUEL INJECTORS ...INTERESTING!!
*Consumer Suggestion: Call Toyota Corporate!
In may of 2001 I took our 97 camry LE back to the dealer because of a smoking problem I had when starting the car in the morning. The car did not smoke at any other time.
The service supervisor siad he thought it was bad fuel injectors and I told him I thought it was bad valve stem seals. He insisted on changing the injectors and while doing so he also changed the spark plugs. I picked the car up a week later, took it home and the nest morning upon starting it there was smoke. Icalled the service manager who said the smoke was caused by the additive he put in the gas tank and it would stop after the tank was refilled with fuel.
The car continued to smoke so I took it back in and the service manager decided I was right about the valve seals and changed them. The car did not smoke again until may of 2002 at which time I was given an appointment for July to have the car inspected. When I took the car in I was told nothing could be found that would cause the smoking. I insisted it was the valve stem seals agian but the dearler would not cover the cost because the one year warrenty ran outin June. I wanted to sell the car but could not sell it with the smoke so I had it fixed to the tune of $1000.00. I wrote Toyota corp about the situation but have not heard from anyone. My next step is small claims court.
