Toyota Camry Check Engine Light - Catalytic Converter. Hello,I own a Camry 2. Cylinder LE Automatic with 1. K miles. I am the first owner (from MA).
The check engine light has been on and off by itself for the last 6 years(Around 7. K miles it started)My car is due for the inspection this month and the light is on again. I am afraid this message will be a long one but I would like to give you the past history of the vehicle. Before the light started turning on, a Toyota dealer had to replace one of the cylinders at 4. K miles at no charge since engine constantly needed to add oil and oil would turn black in every 2 K miles. It took them two weeks to do the job.
I don`t know if this is contributing to engine light problem or not. When the first time the light came on it was around around 7.
K miles, 6 years ago. I took it to a Toyota dealer. They were not able to find the exact reason but said it is due to a small gas leak from the muffler near the engine most likely. Car was taking already contaminated air and that could be the reason for misreading.
Light turned on mostly at winter months and while driving distances more than 1. And it disappeared by itself in a few months. Last year the light turned on one month before the inspection. I still went to inspection and failed. I took the car to my mechanic. He changed the oil and the air filter.
Light turned off and I tried again and my car passed the inspection. Now I have 1. 40.
K miles and the light came on two months ago. My car is due for inspection this month. I haven`t taken the car to the test yet. My mechanic scanned and the code P0.
It says "Catalyst system efficiency below threshold- bank 1, Probable cause 1- AF sensor error 2- Fuel system fault 3- Faulty catalytic converter. Mechanic says it could cost up to $2. He suggests replacing the first cat. Toyota. If this doesn`t solve the problem then change the evaporator and the second converter. I am wondering if the main cause is some kind of disfunction of the replaced Cylinder.
Is it possible that the repaired cylinder has been functioning less than perfect and this has been leading to too heavy input into the catalyst system? Finally is it worth repairing this car or Should I sell it for parts?(I also feel I will need a new muffler very soon)Thank you for your patiance.
