Default Engine noise, any fix?

I am not sure why it makes noise, but bottomline, how much I may need to pay
to fix this (in the most common & worst situation)

thanks,

tim

Tim,..if you aren't sure what the noise is,..you need to ask around for a
reliable, trustworthy mechanic. Dealers have high overhead-costs and charge
the maximum they can, by and large,..

Generally speaking, most engines have the odd noise here and there and if
that noise is light and not a deep clonk or thud,..its probably not serious.
But to relieve your concern, seek out the non-dealer mechanic that your
friends, neighbor etc use who dont charge the earth, and get it right most
times the first time...

To try and assess here what exactly is causing your noise is too difficult
as there are so many potential causes.

The most common cause tho (I'd wager), is valve-train noise or overhead-gear
noise. This is characterised in Camry engines by a lot of medium-loud
plopping sounds which get louder as the engine is revved. The fix, if you
really want to get rid of it, and this is optional, is to get a reshim of
the cam to valve-bucket clearance. Unfortunately if this is indeed the
cause, can cost 100s of dollars.

Gee, overflowing with detail, aren't you. Your engine makes noise because
every second there are at least 30 or so explosions inside.
