Your vehicle would probably need a short block, or you can spend the money to have a good machinist refurb your motor.
To save the headache, I would sell it fast to someone that wants a vehicle that is considered a "mechanics special." Your vehicle has low-average mileage and Toyotas always retain decent value, even with a bad motor.
I would turn around and use that money to buy something with a little less mileage and make sure the oil changes were done on time.
Good luck

    How can you suggest a new short block with out getting everything else checked first. The knock can be from timing and other things .

    If different mechanics saw the vehicle and suggested the same thing, then i assumed its due to low oil pressure. If the original poster could include information like when the timing belt was last changed and how often the oil changes were done it would help. A timing issue would throw a check engine light.

    The Avalon does not have a cap or distributor. Ignition is controlled by the vehicles computer and spark is distributed directly from each ignition coil.

I have a 2005 toyota avalon. the csv light came on along with the check engine light. we recently put new tires on (recommended size) less than 100 miles ago. any ideas on what could set off these alarms


I just had the same problem with my 2001 avalon. AutoZone told me it was code Po171 and the car was running lean. You don't have to take it to the shop right away but don't wait too long. Took it and the mechanic had to clear out the mass air flow on top of the air bonx (sp?). I guess if this vent gets clogged it can strain the engine? Hope this helps!

I have a 1998 Toyota Avalon XL - the engine sign is on for a while...the mechanic says it will cost $300 - it's the oxygen sensor...is it right?(He says that after replacing I have to do 50 miles...then...


If the sensor is bad and needs to be replaced, the light needs to be reset at the time of repair.

If your mechanic does not have the equipment to reset the light, he can not accurately diagnose the light either and is likely just guessing.

Find a new mechanic, this guy smells like trouble.

1996 Avalon-Great car 200,000 miles on it. How can I disconnect or by paass Knock sensor. Check engine light comes on and I am due for inspection. Car runs great. Please advise. Thanks ****


Hello. To answer your question, the answer is no. You cannot disconnect it, bypass it or defeat it. The Knock sensor is critical to preventing detonation (valve 'ping'). Sorry that I do not have abetter answer, but, the Knock is indeed important.

Dodge cummins won't start, fuel reaching injector pump but no fuel coming out of injector pump.


You said you have fuel flowing from the inlet line of the injection pump? But not at the injector lines?
