1999 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

problem #5

The cruise control was set just over 70 mph and the vehicle accelerated on it's own. The vehicle reached 90 mph. When the brakes were applied, the cruise control did not disengage. The ignition was turned off and the engine finally quit. 20 minutes later the vehicle was started and redlined. The cruise control module was replaced. (denso cruise control actuator, Toyota 88002-06020, serial#MX100300-6040 12V, made in Mexico) the consumer had the brakes replaced months before the incident, however the heat produced caused the rotors to warped.

April 30, 2003 on Sunday, April 27, 2003 - my 1999 Toyota 2.2L 4cyl Camry le VIN number 4T1bg22K5xu530462 ceased to operate at jfk international airport. The engine with a very loud noise (such has gears under pressure that just gave way) stopped abruptly while smoke came out and the oil spilled all over the place. After having the car towed back to rockland Toyota the next day I later was informed that there was a significant sized hole on the engine and was shown broken the pieces. The car was always serviced at rockland Toyota since its purchase from Toyota North (all based in New York). My Camry has had simptoms relating to oil sludge in the engine. Persistent drifting/pulling to the left or the right, uneven wear of tires with need for early replacement, premature brake component wear, including rear brake drums, and vibrations, esp. At speeds above 50 mph since its purchase in 1999.
