2001 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

I have a 2001 Toyota Camry where the gas pedal sticks at times. Not all the time. Is there a problem with this year/model vehicle. I have had it at my local mechanic where he lubricated the cable. It helped for a very short time. The problem is back again. Is this vehicle part of any recall with Toyota?

Camry 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles
My check engine light was coming on with approximately 40,000 miles on my 2001 Camry. After taking it to the dealer, I was told a valve was bad and would need to be replaced (along with about $2000 of other things that mysteriously didn't need any work at my 36, ooo mile end of warrenty check-up). A cursory internet search showed that the valve part was actually a sensor that regulates fuel. The internet search showed several articles about inproperly calibrated sensors and articles saying that 2001 Camry manufatured in Kentucky were under recall for defective sensors. I waited for a recall notice, and never received one. I searched again for the calibration articles and a mechanic advised that the light would turn off if I did not carry a lot of luggage in the trunk, did not accelerate too quickly or use a bicycle rack on the trunk. Avoiding these things caused the light to go out for long periods of time, usually a few thousand miles, and then the light would come on and go back off before I could take it to a mechanic. I inquired at two Toyota dealerships to see if my car was to be recalled. Both said no. The national Toyota customer relations insisted no 2001 Camry from Kentucky were recalled, despite my finding that several recall websites listed them. The check engine light is now back on, and has not turned off like it has in the past. After seeing so many articles on improper calibration and defects, I would like to submit my car for recall.
