I have a 4 cylinder 2000 Camry that I recently took to the shop because my check engine light was on and it was blowing out a puff of white smoke when the car first starts. I was told it was an EGR problem and this is what I had fixed:
"Upon client approval, remove and replace defective EGR Bypass Vacuum Valve with new (OE)
EGR Bypass Vacuum Valve. Test drive vehicle following service to confirm proper operation.
Warranty on parts and labor is 2 years or 20,000 miles (whichever comes first). Warranty
valid at FIXCARNOW locations only. "
The problem is my car is still blowing out smoke, the check engine light is off, but it is having the same problems it did before. My concern is that either they didn’t properly diagnose the problem,even though they ran a full diagnostic on the car, or just didn’t fix it.
I’m scheduled to go back in and get more repairs done per their suggestions.
I just want to have an idea of what to ask when I call them back, or if I need to take it to another place.
