Question about 2001 Toyota Camry
1997 Camry. Key glitches in the switch and will not turn. Sometimes it will turn if I put in the key and tap it with the back end of a flashlight all around. But now, even that doesn't work. The dealership cut us a new key a couple of months ago (we had it towed in). And now the new key has done the same thing. 95 Mazda Miata,I got rear-ended now key wont turn ignition and steering wheel is locked

The P0420 code is a more common one in general. The description for P0420 is Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1). You're going to want to focus your diagnosis efforts on the O2 sensors, catalytic converter, and exhaust system. Here's a great detailed article on that specific code and how to fix it - http://www.obd-codes.com/p0420

California has a law that Mazda guarantees the timing belt will last 105,000. I drove my 1999 Miata that long before I replaced it. Mazda ia a non interactive motor which means that if the belt breaks the car stalls and won't go anywhere. No damage to engine if it breaks.

The fill pipe is right back there. Check to see if a hose has been damaged. Check the spout area, is there a overflow pipe or a seam that could be leaking into the trunk?

Just had BOTH of my O2 sensors replaced in my 2002 Miata. The sensors are located
1. at the back of the engine compartment look down (on the passenger side ) You should see a spark plug looking device near the bottom of the engine (on the side) it has a short wire output that goes to a connector looking device on the other end. This O2 sensor had a short wire connector on the other end
Probably can be replaced from the top.
2. This one is tougher --- From underneath the vehicle just after the catalytic converter you should be able to see the Spark plug like O2 sensor . The person who repaired it for me had to trace the wire from the O2 sensor. It goes up into ( perhaps the frame or bottom of the vehicle INTO the Driver compartment under the drivers seat. It is located near the Center Console right at the carpet seam. It was about in a straight line from the BACK of the Drivers side Car Door. He felt around -- and located the Connector (under the carpet near the center console. . He checked underneath the car to the point where the wire disappeared --to confirm he had the correct wire.
Once he located where the sensor wire led to --He had the old sensor out and wire connector disconnected and a New sensor and the connector installed in about 10 minutes.
The O2 sensor for this one was much longer than the first O2 sensor in the engine compartment He had to use some sort of standard release spray on the old sensor itself --to remove the old O2 Sensor. Since it is exposed to the elements under the car. Wrench, I think a screwdriver and the spray were all the tools I remember him using.....
The autozone code indicated only the engine compartment sensor was bad.
The repair man told me Both usually go bad at the same time.
I fixed the first one only -- turned out the warning light lit up a day or so later indicating the second O2 Sensor under the vehicle was bad. Fixed that as well -- have had no problems since -- repair was about 4 months ago.....
