It is usually on the rear valve cover and looks like a multi-layer disk with rubber vacuum lines coming out of the side. Disconnect lines two bolts that hold it on. carefully use coathanger or similar object to scrape carbon (often white powder substance) out of the two vacuum outlets. then use an air compressor to blow out the rest. doesnt need to be totally clean as new but enough to let the valve work.

Usually map sensors have to be replaced and cannot be repaired.

Use the fuel brake cleaner or throttle body cleaner.

It depends on how much you want to spend. Common parts are fuel filter, air filter, clean throttle body, clean combustion chambers, replace spark plugs and its wires.

I would check the air filter first. If the filter is clean you need to clean the throttle body.

The thottle body is connect to the plantum right in front of the air filter housing the throttle cable is connected to it.

Open the hood in Camry 07 LE 4 cylinder, beside the air filter housing you will see the MAF sensor with a connector. Open two screws and clean with only CRC MAF cleaner and put it back you should see the difference now. Shuja Zaidi

Yes the 1997 Toyota Camry has a metal screen filter inside of the transmission pan on the bottom of the transmission, you will have to remove the bottom transmission to get to the filter, because the filter is a metal screen you do not have to replace the filter, you can clean the filter and reuse it

Remove it, and throttle body carbon cleaner. Make sure that the valve can be moved easily.

First off you must drain the tank and then remove from the car. Cleaning can only be done with it separated from the vehicle.

Overall idle cannot be adjusted mechanically because Camry uses electronic fuel management. If your idle is irregular or very low, you need to check the air filter whether it's plugged, idle control valve (use throttle body cleaner), throttle position sensor and EGR valve (you might have to clean it too). PS: before to start check ECU codes.

It does not require service at all. Just make sure that it's clean and you use proper coolant with proper level.

egr valve is located on left rear of cylinder head. to find it just look for the metal tube running from the exhaust manifold to the back of the intake manifold... the thingie there where the metal tube joins the intake manifold is the egr valve

many engine builders like to use lubriplate 105 assembly grease pack clean grease into inlet of pump for start up or if pump is open pack clean grease into gears or lobe and rotor

If its not the fuses and you are getting power to the lights its most likely your ground not making contact. Clean all connections and try again.

Both of these procedures are discussed on the Toyota Nation Camry forum. The throttle body only handles combustion air that has passed through the filter. There is no fuel to gum up the mechanism that occurred on carburetors. You can take the air cleaner off with the duct work and see i the throttle plate has a build up. Don't try to open it. It is driven by an electric motor and you may damage it. As for flushing the transmission,try googling this subject. Toyota doesn't have this maintenance listed in the maintenance schedule. I do mine myself. See the Toyota Nation Camry forum

You need to clean the throttle body also make sure that you check the air filter. If it does not help check if the throttle position sensor works properly.

This is my personal experience for 2002 toyota camry. I was having the same problem. I read so many blogs all saying that you have to change your relay and the ac will start working. I did two things and now my ac is working fine. A) Clean/Replace your cabin air filter. B) Change the relay. (The relay costs you about 15 dollars at any auto parts)

There are multiple cleaners you can purchase in autoparts store. I recommend Seafoam. The only problem is that you will have to change oil soon after adding Seafoam in the tank. So plan cleaning accordingly.

Not knowing the model, its condition and features, I'll assume good to fair with normal features and accessories. Based on, it's worth roughly 40% less than a comparable clean titled car, making it worth around $3600.

Your battery is down, or one of main fuses quit. You need to check the fuse box in the engine compartment. Also make sure that you have clean battery wire contacts from rust and dirt.

P0401 indicates problems with EGR system... It might a simple one, for instance, you just need to clean EGR pipe and valve. Or it can be more expansive one like faulty EGR valve or EGR sensor. Which one you have impossible to answer without testing the car. And you can use the professional Toyota tool to repair it, I think the Toyota it2 is a good tool for it.

open the cylinder and make sure it is EMPTY. Then merely swab down the inside of the barrel with a gun cleaner solvent as well as the cylinder. clean bore and cylinder with clean patches, then apply light coat of gun oil to bore, cylinder and outside of gun. Gun stores sell pistol cleaning kits..............
