Question: hi i have 6 cylinder totota camey 1997.all of sudden it start vibrating when i turn my car ignition on. once i roll the car it give me "ENGINE CHECK" lights. pl.help. thans - girish, December 2008
Answer: Hi Girish. The Check Engine Light and vibrating symptoms are telling you something is definitely not right with the engine. It would be guessing on my part if I could diagnose the problem as-is. I suspect you have a misfire but it could be a lot of other things as well. What you'll need to do next is get the trouble codes read using a code scanner. Auto parts stores will usually read codes for free if you don't want to buy a code reader. The codes will be in the format P0420 -- P0XXX usually. Once you have those codes, come back and do a search on that code and I'm sure that will help. If not, ask another question. Good luck!

Question: My check engine light is on after a minor accident involving jumping a curb.. My car seems to be stalling out when its idling at stop lights.. also shaking while driving on the freeway.. Theres a plastic piece hanging under the radiator and it doesnt seem to be leaking any fluids. What could it be? i have a 1996 toyota camry - Crystal, September 2008
Answer: Hi Crystal. You definitely need to get that situation checked out by a qualified, trusted technician. The shaking on the highway could involve critical suspension parts that could fail and cause you to lose control of the vehicle. Definitely get it looked at as soon as possible. Also, for us to help with the check engine light, we'd need to know what the stored trouble codes are. Your safety should be your first priority, make sure the car is in good driveable condition before you worry about the stalling and idling. Good luck!
Question: I have a 2003 Toyota camry 4 cyl approximately 94000 miles. Recently, the Check Engine Light came on and stays on. I went to Auto Zone and had a reading of code 1442. What exactly does this mean? Celeste - September, 2008
Answer: Hi Celeste, thanks for contacting us. The code actually has another character in front of it, most likely a P (Powertrain) code as they're most common, although it could also be a B (Body) or C (Chassis) code. So it's likely P1442 and it's description is Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected. That code is specific to Toyota vehicles, although it seems nearly identical to the generic code P0442. This error pertains to the emissions system in the car. You now have the choice of either taking the car to a qualified technician or you can try a few troubleshooting steps yourself. If you're not mechanically inclined, I would recommend you change the gas cap to a brand new Toyota one (not a cheap aftermarket one), reset the code and see if it comes back. If the code returns there are additional steps you can take. Take a look at this P0442 article for other ideas.

Answer: Hi Connie, thanks for contacting us. The check engine light comes on and stays on to indicate there is a problem with the vehicle. Your Camry needs attention. For more information on what to do next, read this article. Since you have no symptoms it's likely a minor issue, however it's a good idea to keep the car well maintained and in good running condition, so I'd get that checked out if I was you. Good luck!
