Has My Camry 2007 Engine Finally Knocked? by Nobody: 9:05pm On Oct 20, 2015
For those who have been following the trends on what happened to my car after it overheated and stopped on the highway. After d gasket change, The car over heats 40mins after I put on d AC and 2hrs wen AC is off.

I started noticing water in my engine Guage in d mornings..and hard starting whenever I want to drive. I have to press d pedal an Rev before it trips off.

Two days ago the car overheated on my way to work and thankGod I was close so my mech drained d oil and serviced it and warned me to change the engine in no distant time. After servicing..I noticed when I Rev in idle water pours out of the exhaust, so I checked the oil and saw it covered with water. Now it has refused to start.

I am going to purchase a skeletal engine on Saturday. cry but I hope it wud solve this issue once and for all. I'm going with my mech to get a 2AZ engine. Also how much is the average price of the tokunbo engine and how do I knw if I have purchased a good one. Pls suggestions and advise are welcome. Thanks guys

I'm really sorry you're having so much grief with your engine. I did kind of suspect it was on borrowed time though.

dear obitee69 i am sorry to say dis, but ur quite a daft gentleman. ur a classical example of penny wise pound foolish! when dis whole saga started (borne out of ur daftness driving a car till it overheated and stopped) u were advised on what to do by the experts. i can remember hw u were lashing out at them. now d chickens have come home to roost! just calculate hw much uve spent trying to fix since it happened.
why are u asking for suggestions and advise on buying an engine? thought u said ur going with ur so called mechanic? or doesnt he know his work again?
dis man, u can NOT eat ur cake and have it!
I don't know you neither am i related to the op but you are manner less,
you think you can come online and say shiit to people?? w.t.f is wrong with you
is it your money NO
Did any of your relations lend him money to buy the car NO
Is he owing you No
do you know him No

then why are you putting the matter on your head

fine he was told to replace the engine right from the start , is there any crime in milking the remaining juice out of the engine before he buys another one
i don't just understand some-people
but seriously your post got me pissed
so disappointed

First I think it's time to change yhur mechanic. Again, if yhu can afford it, I'd recommend a whole engine transplant, yhu can always sell off the good remains of yhur current engine.

You actually came online and said shiit to me. you are with sin, yet you cast the first stone.
my words 2 obitee69, albeit harsh, is just me saying it as it is, as i see it.
and yes theres a crime grin he himself has said something about soaking garri if changing the engine (sure its a joke tho, but no smoke without fire) the crime is penny wise pound foolish. he's gonna end up spending even more now, than if he had heeded the experts advice from the onstart.
i am very sure my first comment na wetin some people for like talk, and e dey sweet dem as dem dey read am grin

What's the point? You will just set your self up. Better go your self, get the average prices and allow him go on his own.

I really wish it didn't get to this stage. Very frustrating sad

Please get a complete engine with same spec. You can still get some spare parts from your old engine e.g. ac compressor. Keep it around if you have space
Re: Has My Camry 2007 Engine Finally Knocked? by Nobody: 8:36am On Oct 25, 2015
Iv changed my engine. I bought it 160k..just call it 200k + workmanship and miscellenous. The car feels like new right now. It's faster than it was when I Bought it. Special thanks to all that contributed immensely. I'm so happy now and my soul is at peace. Happy sunday cheesy

Your gearbox shouldn't be affected as a result of engine damage.

You shall not soak garri, unless it's by choice. Heck, you'll get your Camry fixed, and may even be driving a brand new car this time next year.

Here's to moving onto bigger and better things.
