McCalla's Camry Noises

In #1243 the diagnosis was “sticky valves” and use of a Snap-on Motorvac. I disagree.

I agree the dealership should fix the problem under the 100,000 mile warranty. But we were not told how many miles were on the Camry.

I think the first thing to check is valve adjustment. Toyota uses solid lifters which require checking at 60,000 miles.
