2003 Camry Sportivo 2.4L 5th gear vibration

2 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I bought my '03 Camry Sportivo 2.4L a little while ago. I've since noticed that when in 5th gear I get a vibration/rattle through the gear stick. You can hear it as well (that's what alerted me initially to it). The sound and vibration go away if I have no throttle on. It also sometimes goes away if I pop it out of 5th and then slot it back in.

Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

Many thanks in advance!

Check all of the trim pieces nearby. 

You may also need to remove the cover to access the shifter assembly and regrease the shifter pivot or the cable pivots.

      Hi again everyone. This morning whilst on a drive I realised that my tarago no longer goes into 5th gear. Yesterday it drove beautifully but today when I put it in 5th it's like it's in neutral, doesn't even stall when stopped. I'm really hoping someone can confirm my suspicion that the gearbox has an internal selector pin for each gear and that I won't need to replace the gearbox?

      As a new member I am writing this in the hope that I can draw on the knowledge of other Toyota Camry owners my topic is quite left of centre and has proven to be a difficult one to find an answer for. I drive an 09/2009 Toyota Camry Altise and am trying to find out if the Australian version of the XV40 known as ACV40R is the same body style (Panel) specifications as the North American 2009 XV40 known there as the LE? my research suggests the same Toyota Camry body style (XV40) was shipped to both Australasia as (ACV40R) and North America as (LE) amoung other markets as of 2007 with minor cosmetic differences, my reason for this question is due to the fact that I would like to fit an aftermarket body kit to the vehicle but neither the American Retailer of the 2009 Camry body kit or my Toyota dealership can answer this fitment question.
      Any help with this topic would be greatly appreciated

      Hey guys and gals,
      My name is Dan, I own a van, oh look I rhymed, that wasn't the plan...
      I'll stop :P I recently bought this beautiful beast and have always had toyota cars. Only vehicle I've owned that wasn't was a Honda spada 250cc.
      Would love to catch up with people,I'm currently restoring the exterior (not completely but I'll do my best) I'll probably ask for a lot of help but I'll probably provide a fair amount as well. See ya on the boards!!

      Hi guys,
      I have a problem with my car and I cant find a solution for it.
      Before, when I lock the car, the indicators usually flash once to let me know the car is locked; and flash twice with a sound when I unlock the car. Now, after I took it to the Toyota dealer a month or 2, the indicators do not flash when I lock the car anymore. However, they still flash twice when the car is unlocked.
      I have done a bit of research and some said it may be the bonnet, or boot, or doors arent closed properly. I have checked everything and I cant seem to find what is the problem. My friend said it may be disabled by the Toyota dealer for some reasons but I am not sure if that was the case.
      Is there anyone have the same issue - thanks :)

      Hi all,
      I'm looking for a reliable and running toyota that is 3k or under.
      In short, it needs to have the following:
      Black/White body colour
      Working Air Conditioning (A/C)
      Power windows
      Show me what you have! 
      Thanks :)
