Question about Toyota Solara

2 Answers

I used a toptak TP 110 code scanner to scan my 2001 toyota solara after several tries I continually get an error code each time. To check the operation of the code reader I tried it on a different vehicle 2001 Ford E 150 it worked fine on this vehicle. Giving a proper code. Any suggestion on why I would get a error code on the toyota?

Code P1121 for TP sensor - where is it located on engine of 2002 4.0 ford ranger


P1121 - Throttle Position (TP) Sensor Inconsistent with MAF Sensor The PCM monitors a vehicle operation rationality check by comparing sensed throttle position to mass air flow readings. If during key ON engine running self-test the comparison of the TP sensor and MAF sensor readings are not consistent with calibrated load values, the test fails and a diagnostic trouble code is stored in continuous memory.
  • Air leak between MAF sensor and throttle body
  • TP sensor not seated properly
  • Damaged TP sensor
  • Damaged MAF sensor
Drive vehicle and exercise throttle and TP sensor in all gears. A TP PID (TP V PID) less than 4.82 % (0.24 volt) with a LOAD PID greater than 55% or a TP V PID greater than 49.05% (2.44 volts) with a LOAD PID less than 30% indicates a hard fault.

VSC and ABS lights come on while driving , vehicle starts running rough with a little jerking feel


Toyota has had problems with their throttle systems, I have never seen an accidental, unwanted acceleration, but I have seen pedal and throttle position sensor codes several times with theses systems. You need to scan the car for codes, as there are several hundred. The VCS and ETS are all part of the same system, that being the power train control. Take it to a Auto zone for a quick scan or you can buy cheap scanner online that will give you just the codes to Google the problem. Since you have an ETS light which is a malfunction with the electronic throttle control, then you will get a check engine and a VSC light as well as they are all dependent on a properly working electronic throttle system. Good Luck :)

Misfire 99 solara


why?
you felt it , or the scan tool told you? or both?
misfire, means.:
that cylinder had very weak power .
takes 3 things to have strong power,
compression at spec. spark and fuel ratio correct.
1,2,3 any can fail, and in that order. order matters.
if this is a scan tool error, DTC, post the codes, or we fail.

How can i check for error codes?


There is no built in way of checking codes without the use of a scantool.
There are several low priced but very basic scanners available at auto parts stores, ranging from $25-75 for basic scanning..

Many auto parts stores will scan your codes for you free of charge (in hopes of selling parts).
AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts, and O'Reilly are 3 stores that offer free check engine light scanning.

2002 toyota engine, oil sludgecaused my car to stopped and now needs overhaul


Complain to Toyota, they are fixing some of these car for free. Here is the explanation and the list of problem vehicles.

Oil sludge or black sludge is a solid or gel in motor oil caused by the oil gelling or solidifying, usually at temperatures lower than 100 degrees Celsius. Sludge can be a major contributor to Internal combustion engine problems, and can require the engine to be replaced, if the damage is severe. Sludge is usually caused by the presence of water in the oil, and can accumulate with use. Ways to minimize sludge production and accumulation includes performing frequent oil changes, using synthetic oil, and following the manufacturer's engine maintenance routine.
The following engines were reported by the Center for Auto Safety and/or their manufacturers to have a problem with sludge accumulation:

  • 1996-2001 Toyota 3.0 L 1MZ V6
  • 1996-2001 Toyota 5SFE I4
  • Feb 23, 2009 | 1995 Toyota Camry
