Hi

How is it going Pete? What engine does the Camry have? 2.4L VIN B or E / 3.5 VIN K. Check the 8th digit of the VIN. I will get that for you. I will look and see if the engines do not matter in the mean time.

Here is a link to the trouble shooting guide for the 4cyl and v6. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ptgS_6xovVQgZRO3KS5a_1g9rW_i1n2B?usp=sharing

Looks like the most common fix is replacing the throttle body after trying to clean the throttle plate first.

I would clean the throttle plates and then clear the code see if it come back. If it does diagnose using the chart. Hopefully the cleaning fixes it.

Good luck with the repair and if you need anything else, just let me know!! Great hearing from you again!
