ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING

5/18/2015 - ORLANDO, FL
HESITATION OCCURS WHEN ACCELERATING ACROSS AN INTERSECTION OR PULLING INTO TRAFFIC, USUALLY FROM A STOPPED POSITION. CAR INITIALLY STARTS THEN HESITATES & FEELS LIKE IT WILL SHUT OFF. TO GET ACROSS THE INTERSECTION YOU NEED TO "FLOOR IT" WHICH MAKES THE ENGINE "ROAR" BUT LITTLE ACTION FOR ALL THE NOISE. THIS HAS HAPPENED NUMEROUS TIMES IN 2 YRS (ESTIMATED DATE & MILEAGE FOR 1ST OCCURRENCE). SOMETIMES THERE ARE LONG STRETCHES BETWEEN OCCURRENCES. IT IS DANGEROUS & I LACK CONFIDENCE AT TIMES TO PULL OUT. THE TECHNICIAN DIDN'T EXPERIENCE THE PROBLEM WHEN MENTIONED ON 2 STOPS AT THE DEAL FOR AN OIL CHANGE. TORQUE CONVERTER SOFTWARE UPDATE MADE NO DIFFERENCE. MY PREVIOUS CAMRY NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM.

ENGINE

3/8/2015 - DEXTER, MI
ON A COLD START, THE ENGINE SOUNDS ROUGH FOR ABOUT A SECOND OR TWO. GRINDING TYPE NOISE. COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM THE NORMAL WARM-ENGINE START-UP SOUNDS. ALSO, THE ENGINE DOES NOT SOUND RIGHT FOR ABOUT THE FIRST MILE OR SO AFTER A COLD START, SORT OF A WHINING NOISE FROM THE FRONT RIGHT SIDE OF THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT. CLEARLY AUDIBLE WHEN LIGHTLY REVVING BETWEEN 1500-2000 RPMS. ALTHOUGH TSB-004-13-A HAS NOT YET BEEN EXPANDED TO INCLUDE THE 2013 CAMRY, IT SOUNDS A LOT LIKE THAT EXACT ISSUE MAY BE AFFECTING THE 2013S. THIS 2013 WAS BUILT IN THE SAME PLANT AS THE 2010-12 CAMRYS THAT ARE PART OF THE TSB. I HAVE TAKEN IT TO THE DEALER TWICE AND WAS TOLD THAT 'THESE SOUNDS ARE WITHIN THE NORMAL RANGE OF NOISES AN ENGINE CAN MAKE'. I DISAGREE. THE VEHICLE NOW HAS 37K MILES ON IT, I AM HOPING IT WILL BE FIXED PRIOR TO THE EXPIRATION OF THE POWERTRAIN WARRANTY (60K).
