The coolant temperature sensor is used to give a signal to the engine's computer to let it know whether the engine is cold (mean more fuel) or when the engine is warm (mean less fuel). So a faulty sensor could have the e gine's computer thinking its cold and waste more fuel.

Nah, I mean we did top off the oil today. My dad did but idk how much was added. Ik for sure its getting at minimum 19.9L/100km

So what should I provide u with???????. I have suggested spark plugs replacemnt, but he's like no problems. Ima suggest to check them at oil change time.

my dad and his friend thinks they know alot. I'm not paying, my parents are. My dad knows the car uses more gas than the Altima but he doesn't drive it often cuz he drives the Altima to work and not the Camry.cristianosham wrote: ↑ The coolant temperature sensor is used to give a signal to the engine's computer to let it know whether the engine is cold (mean more fuel) or when the engine is warm (mean less fuel).

I say bring it in to a garage and have a diagnosis of the problem. You are going to be spending more money than a can of gumout or just leave it be and pay the extra gas.

if u mean how much km in day. At least 30kmengineered wrote: ↑ Just because it drives normally doesn't mean those couldn't be a problem.
10 min is a lot of wasted fuel. Ideally you should plug in a block heater or keep it in a garage.
Cars can burn 2-4L/hour idling, more when the engine is cold.
How many in does the car drive a day?
If there's carbon buildup then shell 91 may help clean it out, but if you haven't been doing it regularly then there may be too much to clean.

Yea, but why I do I get like 14-15L/100km in summer tho. Probably A/C rightcraftsman wrote: ↑ I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Winter gas and how that combined with the standard Winter conditions (as well as the use of Winter tires) will cause a drop in fuel economy as early as October through the Winter months as the refineries move from Summer gas formulation to Winter and back to Summer.

In and around Jan to March, I get the usual 17-20L/100km. When spring comes, I get 14-16L/100km. In between March and May is when summer tires get put on. Once summer comes (20-30 degrees C weather), I get 12-14L/100km. Theres only 2-3 times that it will actually get 14-15L/100km. This continues till October. Then in October it reaches to 16L/100km. Then winter tires come on in November and then the fuel economy reaches 20L/100km. The fuel economy usuallly get worse before winter tire get put on. There are few times that the fuel mileage with go down to 15L/100km but most of the time, it stays between 18-20L/100km. We're gonna fill up today and I'm going to calculate the fuel economy

2007 Altima summer 13L/100kim Oct 15L/100lm Winter 11L/100km
From the looks of it Summer and Oct Fuel consumption alright on both cars. Only difference is in Winter 20L to 11L. I am getting the feeling there's nothing wrong 2009 Camry. Maybe it Winter COLD and driving habits, stop and go kind of thing.
When you measure the motor oil dipstick is it at proper level. Ideally it should be 3/4 level. About 1/4 level below the FULL level.

Thx. Yes, spark plugs need to be changed. Air filter was changed at 201k KM. Cabin filter was changed somewhere around 205k I think. Coolant, I'm not sure if it's OEM but ik the thermostat is OEM. Belt was probably changed but I'm not sure when. Alternator was recently changed. Squeaky noise isnt that loud but I can hear something while the hood is closed. Idk thing the throttle body has been cleaned nor the MAF sensorhightech wrote: ↑ I have a couple of Camry vehicles (2012 and 2014) and also had a 2002 Camry LE V6. At the mileage you have now, you should have already done the following:
- Change plugs (only use OEM)
- Check your engine air filter as well as the cabin air filter. Clogged filters can cause issues.
- Change coolant and thermostat
- I assume that you changed the Serpentine belt as that drives the Alternator, water pump, and AC system. Also check the tensioner and the idler pulley as that can explain the engine rattle. If you start the car in the cold and if you hear any chirp noises or squealing, that is a good sign of a belt problem.
- A proper injector service and throttle body cleaning would be recommended as that should also be done when you change plugs
Given that you are doing short trips, the engine will be running rich as it has not warmed up. That in itself will give you aweful fuel economy.

MAF sensor is easy to clean. It should be located behind the air filter box. Just take the 2 screws out and use this product to clean it: https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/crc- ... 1704p.htmlUnknown18281 wrote: ↑ Thx. Yes, spark plugs need to be changed.
