2001 Toyota Sienna CEL displayed code P1150 & P0420 what could be the problem


Mine is a 2001 Sienna LE. I got the P0420 code and the dealer want to replace an engine control computer for $1600. I've found posts that say you can replace your oxygen sensors, which still costs around $100 each. The P0420 seems to be emissions related. When my check engine light comes on, I run the highest grade, no ethanol gas, and usually within a couple of tanks, the light goes off again. The last time it happened about 2 wks ago, I put in the 93 octane no ethanol premium and a can of Seafoam and within a half a tank, the light went out. Your problem might be more serious, and I don't know what the 1150 code is, but so far that's worked for me.

'01 chevy prism has the check engine light on, P0240 is the code


Hi Carla:
There are a number of things that could be causing this p0420 catalyst efficiency code. The most common thing is the catalytic converter itself is no longer functioning properly. The other likely thing is the rear O2 (oxygen) sensor is no longer working properly. Other things could include exhaust leaks, damaged exhaust pipes, damaged O2 sensor wiring/connectors, plugged catalytic converter, etc.

A P0420 code is a trouble code on OBD-II equipped vehicles. All vehicles from 1996-newer sold in North America support this generic powertrain code. This code is a pretty common one and this site is here to help the average do-it-yourself (DIY) car owner (like you) troubleshoot, diagnose, and fix their vehicle themselves when presented with a P0420 code, saving money.

If your car has multiple trouble codes (DTC's), it's always a good idea to fix them in the order they come up on the code reader. For example, if you have these codes - P0300, P0420, P0171, then you're going to want to tackle the P0300 Random Misfire code first (resolve it), and then tackle the P0420 code, etc. The reason for that is that the first code could be causing further DTCs to be set.

If you've come to this site you most likely already know that you have a P0420 code. To start, we strongly recommend you seek the services of a professional mechanic/technician if you have any doubts as to whether you can perform the repair.

Possible Solutions: Some suggested steps for troubleshooting a P0420 error code include:
Check for exhaust leaks at the manifold, pipes, catalytic converter. Repair as required.
Use a scope to diagnose the oxygen sensor operation (Tip: The oxygen sensor in front of the catalytic converter normally has a fluctuating waveform. The waveform of the sensor behind the converter should be more steady).
Inspect the downstream heated oxygen sensor (HO2), replace if necessary
Replace the catalytic converter

One thing to note is that many vehicle manufacturers offer a longer warranty on emissions-related parts. So if you have a newer car but it's out of it's bumper-to-bumper warranty, there still may be warranty on this type of problem. Many manufacturers give a five year, unlimited mileage warranty on these items. It's worth checking into.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

I had my car put on a machine he told me codeP300, P0171, P0302, P0304, P0420 needs repairing. What are these codes for. My car is an 2001 toyota Corolla


P0171 is a lean oxygen sensor code. Codes P0300, P0302 and P0304 are all cylinder misfire codes. Low fuel pressure can cause all of these codes and would be the first thing I would check before replacing anything. Lean codes can be caused by misfiring cylinders. Engines running lean can cause misfires. So you have to figure out which came first - the lean condition or the misfire. Also, it needs to be verified that the engine actually is running lean and the oxygen sensor is not "lying" to the computer. An oxygen sensor that is a liar can actually cause the engine to run rich while telling the computer that it is running lean...AND THIS can cause misfires.

P0420 Is an evaporative emissions system leak code. This code is most often caused by a bad or loose fuel cap. It is also often caused by people refueling their vehicles with the engine running. It can also be caused by a leak in the system that has nothing to do with the fuel cap or refueling.

Evaporative Emissions Vent Solenoid failures are very common on Toyotas and can also cause P0420.

So, to wrap all of this up in simple terms:
You need to get some diagnostics done to save you from wasting a bunch of your hard-earned cash trying to guess what to do to fix the car.

My son's 1999 Lexus ES 300 has a code of P0420 and the check engine light is on. Please help as he has replaced several things and he still has a check engine light on


a common problem is the vacuum switching valves on the charcoal canister. These are small electrical solenoids with 2 vacuum hoses going to them. When you put power and ground to them they should click. Otherwise make sure there isn't a vacuum hose disconnected by the air cleaner box.

HOW WOULD I TELL THE DIFFEENCE BETWEEN A BAD INJECTOR AND A PLUGGED CAT


A bad injector would give the engine a cylinder misfire. You would have a check engine light with a P0300-P0306 code stored in the computer. A plugged cat would make the car feel like it has no horsepower and would set a check engine light with a P0420 code. Usally if you put your hand and feel the exhaust out the tail pipe a plugged cat you will feel little air comming out like if you just were breathing hot breath on your hand, where a good cat you will feel stronger air and slight pulsations in the exhaust.

5 error cods on my 2002 Jetta GLS 1.8 Turbo Engine


P0420= Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold Bank 1
P0300=Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
P0301=Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected
P0172=System Too Rich Bank 1
P2181=Cooling System Performance
you need to write these down,have someone clear the codes in the car,then go for short ride and recheck which if any code reappears.it's like domino's affect,one sensor can start a chain affect with the others.

Check engine light on;engine codes p0420 and p0773


I looked up the codes you posted.
P0420 is showing a bad oxygen sensor on bank #1, the one down by the catalytic converter.
P0773 is an electrical problem with the shift solenoid E.
A bad oxygen sensor would cause lower fuel milage.
