2007 Camry LE 6 Cyl Piston Slap
\015 I have taken my car into the dealer at 30,000 Km and 60.000 km with concerns about the knocking in the engine. Both times they said it was a normal noise. Finally I took it in at just under 100,000 Kms and they said yes there is a problem and it is piston slap. They want to replace the short block but now Toyota will not honour their standard warranty and they want me to pay for 40% of the repair.\015\012\015\012Has there been any recalls or other people with the same problem and what do you suggest should be my next action with Toyota. Everything was documented.\015
There are no recalls, but there are TSB's out on the problem. A TSB is a Technical Service Bulletin. It's a specific repair procedure that addresses a specific issue. Better talk to a lawyer and think about sueing the dealer.

I pulled the #1 spark plug and put my finger over it and had someone turn the motor over until the pressure moved my finger. I then used a socket and moved it the rest of the way by hand until the mark on the pulley was lined up with tho 0. I put a straw inside the #1 cylinder to make sure the piston was at TDC and the piston was not near the top. I had someone hold the straw and turned the motor by hand and got the piston to the top and was pushing the straw out but now the mark on the pulley i

Water pump I am going to replace the water pump and the manual calls for top dead center cyl 1. Why? I know I am going to be removing the timing belt but as long as it is marked - why does it matter where the pistons are. Also I #1 plug seems to be behind the gen. mount. Spark plug hard to get any trick? Also how in the world am I going to tell TDC with this set up. I am assuming that piston 1 is top left - how I'm going to determine TDC I don't know at least the way the book explains it - look
