Overnight your car will be really cold, there is no sunlight beating down on it to keep it warm so to speak. During the day since the sun is out it warms up your car, warming up the temperature in the engine compartment, there by keeping the engine a bit warmer at start up. Don't you notice that it takes your car longer to warm up from sitting overnight than it does during the day?

Probably because the dual VVT-i system isn't operating during cold starts. Takes a bit longer to build oil pressure when cold. The engine runs richer, etc. etc. It'll operate while driving since oil pressure is dependent on RPM.

It's normal.

That and Toyota uses universal pistons for each bore (as opposed to select fit pistons which are costlier), so you'll get a little piston slap until the piston expands to fit the bore properly. Toyota also considers this normal.

10 years ago I bought a 2.2L 4 cyl camry solara, I wished everyday that I bought the V6 instead.

With the 2.5 L 4 cyl of my camry going 0-60 in the mid 8 seconds, I have not find myself wishing for a V6 in any situation, I'm perfectly content with the 4 cyl and its close to 30MPG on average with mixed driving.

I need to learn to talk like that when someone ask me a question at work and I don't really know the answer.. :)

Sorry I'm not great with words like the rest of you pride yourselves on......I explained the best I could. Every car when starting up from overnight sounds like crap at first. Everything from my old Sunfire to my 2011 Camry to my mom's old 97 Eldorado did the same thing.

Haven't heard of a Camry that new with that issue yet....seems odd. If it's a 2010 get it looked at, it's still covered under warranty?

I have noticed this starting up brand new Camry's in the winter. Below 32 degrees the starter and flywheel grind loudly almost every time you start them :ugh3:

I'm still bother by the loud and vibration(shake? piston slap like someone said?) during cold start of my 2010 camry

the noticable shake or vibration and the loud vroom is a bit annoying. It's worse than most other cars I have.

but it's not to the point of something wrong I need to take it to the dealer.

so you guys are saying it's all normal??

Have the dealer look at it during your next oil change (you did get the free 2-year maintenance?). I don't think they can do anything about it if it's piston slap. It's the low cost production method toyota is embracing. Toyota does the same with the 3.5L V6. So you have new Lexus on the dealer lot doing the piston slap on cold starts too.

Look into T-SB-0146-10 June 9, 2010

Brief Engine Knock/Rattle Noise at Cold Startup
(1AR/2AR)

2010 – 2011 Camry Engine(s): 2AR
Transmission(s): 6MT, 6AT
VDS(s): BF3EK

Immediately following a cold soak startup, some 2009 – 2011 model year vehicles equipped with the
1AR-FE and 2AR-FE engines may exhibit a brief knock/rattle noise from the engine compartment for
approximately one second.

This TSB applies to vehicles produced BEFORE the Production Change Effective VINs shown below.

Camry
4T1BF3EK#BU123642
4T4BF3EK#BR090887
JTNBF3EK#A3005237

is my 2010 camry affected by this? my vin is #: 4T4BF3EK0AR04xxxx

also I can't find this TSB online, how do dealers deal with TSB's since it's not really a recall?
