    Pressure washed engine now P0340 CEL

    Well I didn't want to put the old distributor back in but I did. While trying to pull the cam sensor out of the "new" one several of the screws pulled the threads out of the housing. Not sure what brand it is as it was installed by the PO but apparently it was the cheapest one he could find...

    Pressure washed engine now P0340 CEL

    I believe that I have located the problem.... I'm and idiot! As I have stated the LC runs fine and the distributor is new blah blah blah so I was thinking that it could not be the actual cam position sensor. Well.... I looked at the FSM long enough that I found how to ohm it out. My old...

    Pressure washed engine now P0340 CEL

    I was hoping that it was going to be that easy. Took everything apart that I could find that was even close to the distributor and sprayed with contact cleaner and it is still there.

    Pressure washed engine now P0340 CEL

    Other than my local dealer which seems to take a long time to get parts where would you recommend? Toyota parts depot? I just don't want to get a crap part in a re-pop Toyota box.

    Pressure washed engine now P0340 CEL

    Ok so this is becoming a sh!t show for sure. I have been battling this light going on a month now at least. On and off still with no poor running conditions or hard starts/stalling. Just appears and disappears at will. The distributor assembly, cap, rotor, wires and plugs were all replaced...

    Pressure washed engine now P0340 CEL

    Quick update... I have had the intermittent P0340 cam position light since I pressure washed my engine bay. Mostly off and never had any associated symptoms like rough idol, no start, etc. A couple of days ago however I got a light and the engine started to cut out several times. I live in...

    Pressure washed engine now P0340 CEL

    As the title indicates I decided in all my infinite wisdom I would pressure wash the engine to try and identify all the little oil leaks. After I finished I started my LC and the CEL light stayed illuminated. Out comes the handy dandy scanner and it showed P0340. First question is where the...

    EGR code P0402

    Thank you for all the responses first of all. Sorry for the delay in updating second. After following the advice here (Thank you all) and testing procedures in the FSM I have got the light to go out and stay out. What I did to fix it I'm not completely sure. I replaced several hoses that...

    EGR code P0402

    Ok so this is where I stand. EGR, modulator, VSV all test fine. I replaced every line that even looked like it could be bad. Idol is around 900 when warm. Light stayed out for about 2 days and came back on. Just out of perverse curiosity I rescanned and it is now showing to be a P0401 not...

    EGR code P0402

    The BB was on the VSV side (which on my LC is mounted outside of the intake manifold) I have read that they were originally underneath and quite difficult to get to. I did "test" the VSV by putting power and ground to the terminals and hear and click. Before finding the BB, I removed and blew...

    EGR code P0402

    Thank you for the replies. I did get a FSM from the PO. I was just hoping that there was a common problem where I could start. Guess this will not be that simple. I will keep everyone updated as I go.
