  2. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I have owned a 2006 camry 4 cyl since new. It now has 220,000 miles and uses about 1/2 quart of oil every 1,500 miles. I have changed the oil and filter religiously every 3,000 miles using 5w30 or 10w30 regular oil. I was wondering what might be causing the problem and if there is anything I...
  3. 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...
  4. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    I recently sold my 8th gen (with a 7AFE engine) corolla with 297k miles. I was answering to a post in another forum titled "What would you do differently in maintaining your car?" so I decided to share here the maintenance routines I wish I would have done while I owned the car: - Adjusting...

  6. Tundra 2nd Generation (2007-2013)
    Howdy! My dad has a 2013 Tundra--5.7L 3UR-FE, 120k on the clock. It's using 1qt of oil every 2500 miles, and we feel like that's excessive. He's hoping to make a warranty claim but the dealership says "1 quart every 1000 miles is normal" (!!) I don't know if we'll get anywhere, but I would...
  7. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Help, my 09 Camry LE, 4 cyl, 84 k mi. seems to be falling apart after the oil consumption repair. Oil consumption repaired (new pistons, rings) recently by local Toyo dealer. Had water pump replaced during oil consumption repair. Heard a strange noise when I left the dealer. When I...
  8. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I didn't think this engine really burned oil, but apparently the one in my father-in-laws '98 is. He called me saying the oil light was on, and that he added some oil and it went out but is now back on again. I told him it only comes on if it's like 2 quarts or more low (might not be Toyota's...
  9. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hi everyone, I'm looking at buying a 6th gen Camry for my wife to replace her 4th gen. The one I'm looking at is a 2009 SE 4-cyl/auto with 104k on the clock for $6800. My main concern is oil burning, which I know has been a big problem with almost all newer Toyota engines. Do we know why...
  10. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I'm considering getting a Gen6 2.4L, but I'm concerned about ending up with one that has the high oil consumption problem (plugged piston oil drain holes). Other than taking a private party or dealership at their word, is their any definitive way of proving a car has or has not had the piston...
  11. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    I'm trying to figure out what the pulley is called so I can replace it. The car is a 93 Corolla with the 1.6l SOHC engine. I thought it was the harmonic balancer but I think that's the same as the crankshaft pulley. It is the other pulley that accommodates 2 belts. One I believe goes to the...
  12. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Hello- I have a 2007 Camry with 255,000 miles. About 2 months ago, I took my car in for the oil consumption test, since it was burning about a quart every 300 miles. They said I was the best fail they'd had so far - 2 1/2 quarts in 500 miles! After evaluating my engine, and 6 weeks later, they...

  16. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I just had my oil changed at an acura dealership and the oil level is over the second dot by 1/2 inch. I have one of the oil burner camry's that uses about 1 quart every 5k miles. Is the oil being this high going to damage it even further, i.e. should I take it out. I don't know how much it's...
  17. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    3 months ago I purchased a used 2007 Camry and have the oil consumption issue listed in these forums. I don't have an extended warranty so I think I am stuck with it. It runs great except for about 1 quart every 1500. I need to perform an oil change and thought I remembered someone saying that...

    I am in the process of taking apart my 1zzfe non\VVTi, mainly to fix an oil use issue. Not sure what condition I am going to find the components in, so I'm leaving all my options open. If I get a rebuild kit for this engine, do I have to use the original spec pistons and rings, or can I go to...
