Can I try cleaning sensor on bank one of a 2005 Camry with 2.4l

Cam and crankshaft sensors are magnetic so cleaning them would be a waste of time, you can replace them which would eliminate them being faulty! O2 sensors are non-serviceable thus making them in able to be cleaned! Cars today have no serviceable parts and only can be replaced!

2000 lexas rx 300, replaced the o2 sensors but engine lght and code is still 171,could there be a vacumn leak and the sensors are telling the computer [lean on left bank]?

I'd clean or replace the MAF sensor (Mass Air Flow). You can pick up a can of MAF sensor cleaner at most auto parts stores. Replace if cleaning does not work. Go from there...

Can the oxygen sensor be cleaned

The upper and heated O2 sensors should not be cleaned as depending on the cleaner, can destroy them anyway, and the right cleaner for the component can't clean them well enough. It's best to buy new if the ECU kicks out 02 sensor code errors.

Speedometer needle is on the wrong side of the pin, so the speedometer won't work. Can you help?

I am assuming you have a 4-speed transmission?
There are 2-speed sensor on the front of the transmission. Input and Output Speed Sensors.
They are level with each other, right above the top line of the Solenoid (wiring harness goes into this box-like assembly) The one that is closest to the Solenoid is the Input Sensor. The one (at the same level) towards the left side of the van is the Output sensor.
I believe a 1-in wrench will work, after you unplug the sensors. Torque going-on for both is 20 ft-lbs. Before replacing the sensors - you may remove the sensors and clean the metal particles off the interior tips of the sensors and reinstall and check operations. Start with removal, cleaning, replacing the Output Speed Sensor as the Speedometer Info is directly involved with this. If cleaning does not fix the problem then replace it and check operations, before replacing the Input Speed Sensor. This will save you money from replacing both sensor.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at
