be care of the oil consumption
By leon_lz on


2001 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


the camrys from 97-2002 had a design
flaw, which you have to change oil
more frequent than the manual said.
the manual recommends you to change
oil between 5k-7.5k, no way you can
wait for that long. because the camry
was running at higher temp to reach
good fuel economy, therefore, the oil
can loose its lubrication ability
faster, so i would say, change it at
2.5k, or you will have a problem
called oil gelling. search google.com
by toyota oil gelling as key word, you
will know what is going on. Overall,
it is a good vehecle. but not the
model between 97-02. you have to
change oil more often.
