    I have engine light is on
    was told I need( bank 1 )oxygen senser can you help with part #
    • HouseCallAuto

      There are two Bank 1 oxygen sensors. One is before the cat (upstream) and one is after the cat (downstream), also referred to as B1S1 and B1S2 respectively.

      DENSO Part # 2349009 = B1S1 (upstream)
      DENSO Part # 2344215 = B1S2 (downstream)

      Denso is the original supplier for Toyota but there are many brands available that will all work. I prefer original equipment parts when available. All brands have different part numbers.

    How do I turn off the Maintainance Required indicator on the dash board?
    It has something to do with the odometer reset

      The procedure is detailed in your owners manual I am sure, but in case you don't see it...

      1. To reset MAINT reminder light after engine oil replacement, turn ignition switch to OFF position with odometer showing ODOMETER READING. Turn ignition switch to ON position while holding down trip meter RESET button.

      2. Hold trip meter RESET button down for at least 5 seconds until odometer indicates "000000" and MAINT reminder light goes out.

    Why do i have 3 OBD2 codes & C.EL. is on
    P0141, P0442, P0446
    • HouseCallAuto
      11/23/2013 HouseCallAuto
      For the P0141, replace the downstream O2 sensor for (B1S2) Bank one sensor 2

      To correct the other two codes for the evap leak, I believe that you may find there is a vacuum hose that often becomes disconnected from the canister closed valve on the air filter housing during normal maintenance usually by accident.

    Car won't start after it rains

      Has the shop been able to determine why the engine shut down and what failed or you are referring to a prior time when the oil light was coming on? Does the starter roltate the engine when you try to start it or the engine does rotate at all. Have to be specific because the term "will not start" has two meanings. One is that the starter will not do anything like when you have a dead battery and the other is that the engine rotates (starter is working) but the engine does not start (as though you had urn out of gas). I don't know which one you mean here.
      11/19/2013 AutoMD Member
      Thanks for the reply. The engine won't rotate at all. Even after charging the battery for 20 minutes. The oil light, still comes on sometimes. Can't see anything now because there is no power as if the battery is dead. But the battery is not dead.
      11/19/2013 AutoMD Member
      Now the lights come on and the engine tries to start but won't. it also makes a whistling sound.

    Cruise control not in vehicle
    I have a new toyota tacoma. It does not have cruise control, but there is a port in the steerig wheel for it. Can it be installed?
    • HouseCallAuto
      11/17/2013 HouseCallAuto
      Yes it can be installed but I would not be able to answer your unasked question of how much it would cost or exactly what is involved. The reason being is that nobody really knows every component that is missing and every one that is present and these details have to be stumbled upon during research. Usually the factory does not have a different wiring harness, meaning the electrical connections that components plug into are there already. However, the cruise control activation switch, the relay, the cruise control module if applicable, the CC main unit, etc..and whatever else is missing.

    Just replaced carb, but truck bucks when holding constant speed in 2nd and 3rd gears. Not during acceleration.
    Original owner, new engine has 30,000 miles on it. Just replaced carb, 15 miles ago. Problem occurs occasionally. No warning lights on.

      Did you replace the fuel filter with the new carb. It may be starving for fuel. Also it may be time for a tune up. Is the vehicle stumbling or surging under load. Low fuel flow or low pressure could cause this. Is there any excess fuel leakage around carb or black soot in exhaust. Improper shipping or handling of the new carb can damage the float or needle seat causing the carb to overfill with fuel causing similar issues but would show signs of excess fuel.

      Try doing it with the E.G.R. valve hose disconnected. If the problem goes away, then you would have
      to make sure your vacuum hoses and the EGR backpressure transducer are connected properly.

    Timing Belt Broke on noninterference engine
    I was driving about 75 mph when my car suddenly stopped. Apparently, the timing belt broke and also damaged the water pump and radiator. My car has 160,000 miles and the timing belt was not changed because I was under the impression that this model had a timing ...

      There is no in-between. Either this engine is a non-interference engine and after they replace the belt and water pump all is well as though nothing happened, or you have bent valves. I say this because depending upon what site one uses as a reference, for every site that I find that says the 1MZ-FE engine (this is the engine in your Camry) I find another site that says that this is an interference engine so I cannot say for sure sure, but I believe that this is NOT an interference engine because I have never seen bent valves on this engine for any reason. $900 is about right on price, but slightly high maybe. My personal advice here is to ask them to use an Aisin kit such as Part number TKT006 which comes with everything needed and the parts are all genuine Toyota parts (same manufacturer supplier - Aisin) as this kit gets a premium on cost but is higher quality than what typically gets bought at the local auto parts store example - gates, dayco, goodyear.

      Thank you so much for your help! I called Toyota directly, and they told me that the engine is a NOT an interference engine.

    My 95 Toyota Camry have trouble starting some times. How can I tell if it's the starter or starter solenoid
    Turn the key on to start, I here a click or a wine. Some times it start right up. What can I do?

      The wine sounds more like a starter thing. Usually, the starter brushes wear down till they only
      make intermittent contact with the armature.

    My question about the carburetor was answered but?????????
    shouldnt the carburetor already be adjusted from the factory?????
    • John's Auto Repair
      11/11/2013 John's Auto Repair
      No, you will have to adjust the fuel mixture, Ideally with the use of an emission analyzer. You can
      get it close to right by doing the following. Bring engine to operating temperature. Then with a
      screw driver turn the mixture screw in until the engine starts to run rough. Then turn the screw
      counterclockwise until the engine smooths out. This should bring you relatively close to being

      maybe the engine has other issues and the carburetor was not all that was needed.
