Question about 2001 Toyota Camry
Howdy! ive got a 2001 toyota camry, 2.2 4cyl, automatic. my scanner shows a p0401 Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Insufficient Detected.. very rough growl at idle, i assumed it was a smog pump mounted on the exhaust side just under the manifold mounted to the front cover, looks like its driven by the timing belt.. sounds like its coming from that. i was informed this year does not have a smog pump... wondering if you knew what this was or have heard of anything in the past.. Thank you! - michael firstname.lastname@example.org
You have 2 issues, and you really need to get the growl issue checked ASAP. What your noise is, is probably a bad water pump. I change them daily. Just did one this morning. The water pump is driven by the timing belt. If the pump locks up, you will ruin the belt, and the car will not restart. Get it checked, replace the pump.
On the P-0401, you have a blockage in the EGR valve, or the tube going to it is carboned up. This is another common issue.
Please let me know about the pump.
A FixYa rating for my assistance would be greatly aappreciated.
Thnaks in advance.
