I recently had a check engine light on my 2002 Toyota Camry V6 XLE.
I took it to a local Firestone in Santa Clara, California. They charged me for diagnostics ($160-gave me a $30 discount) & then changed the cam sensor for a total of almost $450 ($510 with a total $60 discount).
When I got the car back, the VSC & Trac lights turned on once I started driving. The sales person asked me to drive around for a while when it would go away. It didn’t.
When I gave it back, they claimed that it was a different problem, charged me $80 & recalibrated the VSC/Trac system.
Is Firestone’s claim correct? Is recalibration a standard procedure after a cam sensor replacement, or is it a separate issue?
Do the rates for the engine diagnostics & cam sensor replacement sound correct as well?
Any insight appreciated.
