still not yet clear mention problem


I believe on some of those models, they are known for an oil consumption problem. There are a lot of very angry Toyota customers. They feel that Toyota should issue a recall. Toyota has been dodging the issue for some time now. Just Google "Toyota Camry oil consumption". Seems to happen mostly in the 2003-2007 models. You can always try running a heavy oil. See if that makes a difference.

What Engine is in this vehicle? Check the decal located under the hood. It should indicate a series of numbers and letters. Some engines are now covered for 150,000 miles for this problem.
