I put in the good $8.00 plugsI think so - can't get the lights to clear - tried removing battery cable and using testing unit they won't clear, keep coming back same error - cam shaft sensor

sorry on the phone with another customer

Toyota Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 6 months ago

the reason the light is still on is because the issue is not the cam sensor. I need the code number to research the code. codes rarely identify bad parts just failed systems.

I need the code number for the cam sensor. clearing does nothing as the issue is still active.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
none of those things came up on the testerdid replace 2 little vacuum line hoses bad when replacing plugs
Toyota Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 6 months ago

you have a code reader only. it will not show this. this is what you have to check when the code appears. like I said, codes do not identify bad parts just failed systems.

one common thing with this code is the vvt. it gets sludged up from the oil system. what you can try is use sea foam in the oil. add it and run the engine at idle for an hour. then change the oil and filter and see if it that resolves it.

vacuum lines have no effect on the code
