    Hello all- I have a question I purchased and picked up a 2008 Toyota Camry LE with only 11,500 miles on it. Car looks brand new inside and out but I have been reading a lot of info about burning oil and needs pistons and seals replaced. I pulled up the service history and the older lady that...
  2. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Hey TN, This is going to be my first post here so bare with me if this gets posted in the wrong thread I'm not to familiar with forums. So I recently installed an HPS short ram intake on my 2013 Corolla S (about 2 weeks ago) and have had a CEL and Trac Off light come on. The lights came on...

  4. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hello, I have a 2004 Camry with the 2AZ FE 4cyl motor with 196,000 miles. Last week, for 3 days in a row when I started my car I saw white smoke flying out the exhaust in my rearview mirror. I park in the garage and I had not even started moving or shifted gears before it started blowing smoke...
  5. Highlander 2nd Generation (2008-2013)
    Hello all, I own a 2012 highlander with the standard A 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine, and about a year ago (around 110,000 miles) I noticed that it began to burn a lot of oil between oil changes. The car has always been meticulously maintained, always used full synthetic Mobil 1 oil, never...
  6. Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    My 2000 Avalon with 186k on it has been burning quite a bit of oil for a while now, approximately 1qt per 500-1k miles. I'm not sure because I do a good percentage of both city and highway driving, but I believe it is using the majority on the highway. I switched to Valvoline Maxlife high...

    I have a 2006 Camry with 166, 000 miles on and have changed the oil every 5,000 miles and used Castrol 5w30 oil since I bought it with 14, 000 miles on. About a year ago I had to add a quart to an oil change and now I have added 2 quart and still have a 1000 miles until the next oil change...

  9. Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    Hi, Just wanted to share my experience with everyone here. I bought a 02 highlander v6 AWD on the cheap with 179k miles. It wasn't till i got it home that I realized it was burning about 1 quart of oil every 400 miles. (I didnt see any smoke on purchase) After trying the cheap PCV valve fix...

    2005 Highlander, 4cyl, front wheel drive, 200k miles. Consuming 1qt oil (from high mark to below the low mark) every 1500 miles. Drive 45 miles to work at about 74 mph, this is leading to higher consumption rate than previously had. Use 10-30 mobile high mileage non synthetic oil. I have...
  11. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    The corolla AE101 so far has been running great and picks up speed really good. And its really stable and grips well thanks to the new Goodyear efficient grip performance tyres. It doesnt sound like a bag of bolts and runs pretty smoothly. The problem I am facing right now is, I dont know if the...
  12. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    My car is still very good with 244 900 KM. I have noticed oil likely goes fast. OK, here, I did noticed the gasket front area is dark, looks like oily. So I opened the cover, and looked around, the back side is nice, clean, but the front is dirty. I used the socket and screwed those nuts, they...
  13. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    Hello All, I am having a pretty big problem with my 95 Corolla DX, 1.8L, manual, 217K. I bought it in January and have put 10K since. It has been going through oil at about a quart every 500 miles; but today it just started smoking really bad and it loses power as I drive it. It idles fine and...
  14. Corolla 6th Generation (1988-1992)
    So, the other day my car was idling bad after I started it, which was strange. No leaks or anything. Put some oil in it and it was fine. Now, if I push it over 5.5k rpm or so it starts smoking like crazy out the back. I can smell the burning oil. Driving normal to lightly it's fine though. I...
  15. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    I purchased a 97 Corolla DX 7A-FE 1.8 L in mid May this year. I took a bit of a gamble on it as it was not safetied, no UVIP provided, there was some minor damage on the passenger rocker panel, wheel well and drivers headlight; and the owner told me it had been sitting for several years. Though...
