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.

Your mechanic told you to do a transmission flush and trottle body clean to your 2005 Toyota Camry. Is he trying to cheat you and get my money?

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

How do you adjust the idle on my 2002 Toyota Camry 4-cylinder?

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.

How do fix code P0401 on 2001 Toyota Camry?

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.
