    install fog lights on a 2011 camry

    If you haven't installed them yet, this should help you out.

    What is covered under the extended warranty anyway?

    You don't have a copy of the contract for the extended warranty? It should all be outlined in that.

    All Season Tires

    Michelin LTX M/S are great tires.

    Clearing Trouble Codes

    Are you referring to the MAINTENANCE REQUIRED light or the CHECK ENGINE light? Those are 2 entirely different things. Do you have a pic of the light(s) in question?

    Lose it, that Fast and the Furious crap has long left the dock.

    Maintenance Records

    If the service was performed at a Toyota dealership, I don't see why they couldn't do that with the correct VIN.

    If you don't call Toyota Corp. you'll never know. Give them a call and see what they have to say.
  8. It's a non-interference engine and the major service interval is at 90K with the timing belt and spark plugs at 30K. The 5vz-fe engine is pretty robust like the 22r and the 22re. With regular maintenance they can go well over 200K miles. For further DIY stuff you can go here:
  9. I would check for loose vacuum lines, maybe one got knocked loose while it was being worked on recently.

    Proper AT Service Interval

    It should be every 30K miles.

    Engine and cabin air filters

    Only Toyota dealers are able to resell genuine Toyota parts. Unless you settle for aftermarket, you are SOL.

    Ignition Problem, old car

    I would check the distributor and the plug wires.
  13. Whoa! Your local dealer told you to post your problem on a message board instead of them attempting to fix the problem for you? Time for you to find another dealer and get this straightened out!

    Oil Change

    If it's only for an oil change and nothing else then your local garage should be OK.

    Synthetic oil

    10K miles seems about right. The days of the 3K mile oil changes are long gone with the advent of better additives in oil and better technology in engine developement. If you tend to drive in more stop and go traffic or short distances, I would change the oil more often. If you drive more highway miles then 10K will be just fine.
