Default Air Fuel Ratio Sensors etc.

I have a 2000 Camry V6 that I bought new in Houston.

Disturbing information is posted on MSN autopages which causes me to worry
about unforsean expenses.

I hope all this is incorrect information as I have not seen any of this in
this forum.

Please advice what I should do, if any.

Thanks.
TJ

MSN Auto pages list significant problems with Engines on Camry 1997-2001.
Air Fuel Ratio Sensors is estimated to cost $4.500.00 for parts.

quote " Failure of the Air Fuel Ratio Sensors and the Canister Closed Vacuum
Switching Valve can cause the check engine light to illuminate. The cost to
repair the Engine is estimated at $4,500.00 for parts and $1,384.50 for
labor. "

Alittle misleading. This is a mishmash of several unrelated things.

The $4,500 -- $1,384 cost quote is based on complete engine failure in
the event of engine oil gelling -- the infamous engine sludge thing.

The rest of the stuff is $100-$300 each. If you have had the car as
the original owner, and you change the oil as specified and have not
had any problems yet with the AFR sensor, etc., you are probably fine.

Thanks.
Then I can put my worries to sleep. I intend to keep the car for many more
years. I've put about 50.000 miles on it and it has been serviced regularly
without any problems at all except for roadsalt in the rear brakes. They
need to be lubricated to function probarly as they are a bit slow moving
back. Took the vehicle with me to Norway and there you have salt sprayed on
the roads for several months a year. I hate it.

That's a mix of the problems if you have them. The oxygen sensors runs
about $350 each! Not cheap by any means. Canister valve I read about
court-ordered extended warranty. Don't know the details.

Yes, there are plenty of these in the forum. You just have to do a
search.
