Question about 2001 Toyota Sienna
Hello. I have a 2002 Toyota Sienna with 127k miles. My engine light has been cycling off/on for several months. I just flunked my inspection and was told it's due to the engine light and emissions. My mechanic said there was a "service code" of P420 coming up and I should take the car to a Toyota Dealer. The dealer immediately recommended a Cat. Converter at $1,300. A friend's mechanic said this happened to her car and he "removed one of the spark plugs, let the car run "hard" for an hour and all the 'gunk' was cleaned out of the converter and it then passed inspection. What is your advice? Thank you.
Hi my name is Juan and if you can wait one more day I am at work and I don't have my book with all the codes and once I get to it I can give you more recommendations but don't thrush what the dealer say they like to do this because they do thing that most of the costumers don't know nothing about cars and most people make this big mistake in say yes ok and let them do the repairs sometimes they tell costumers that there vehicles have 2 or more problems and this is not true sometimes is just a loose wire and they charge hundreds of dollars but they never tell you oh it was just a loose wire is 30dls so if you really need a cat-- replacement take your car to a muffler shop they can also do this job and for a lot lot less they charge around 300 to 400 hundred dls for this thanks and I'll let you know your code tomorrow
