Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

Camry SE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,500 miles


Well, I have a 2002 Toyota Camry SE V6. Recently my A/C was not working and found that the condenser should be replaced and I did replaced it.

But later on my car started to make a squealing noise.

When I start the engine cold, first thing in the morning, with the A/C 'on', I hear a squeal for about 10-20 seconds, then it goes away. It does not happen if I stop and; start the car throughout the day, it must be idle for a few hours at least for the squeal to occur. Only happens during start-up, not during driving. What could be the cause??

Couple of websites shows that I have to replace the A/C clutch.

Please someone advise me and wanted to know how much it costs. I do have plans to check with service station, but lately I was totally occupied with work.

Thank you very much for reading my post and replying.
