    P0420 and P0430 - 2006 LC

    At Idle it is showing incomplete combustion, as in not enough fuel..Too much oxygen.. you’re better off looking at fuel trims and taking note the affect raising the RPM has.

    exhaust smoke

    A Cat needs to reach operating temperature and lambda to be close to one for it to function efficiently. If the emission test gets a pass I would just forget about it, if it fails then at least he will know what he is up against. Should have done this first to be honest, but it is done now..

    exhaust smoke

    You could just take it and get the exhaust gases checked, most garages in the UK have a 5 gas analyser for carrying out MOT’s, I presume Italy is the same.. If it passes, runs without fault and doesn’t have any stored fault codes then just ignore. If it fails then post the results along with...

    exhaust smoke

    Carry out a compression test and post results. Also take a picture of the techstream screen showing fuel trims and O2 sensor readings, in graph form preferably for the O2’s..

    exhaust smoke

    It will not smell of unburnt petrol if running on LPG. I am not saying low compression is your issue, just that it is a known issue and you could be chasing your tail if you ignore carrying out this test..

    exhaust smoke

    If you are running LPG the first thing you need to do is a compression test and go from there.. They typically lose compression over time due to Valve/Valve seat problems...

    Timing belt job just done. Blown engine or savable? This is interesting guys!

    Hi Paul, why don’t you pull the cam cover off so you can have a good look. snapped camshaft? check exhaust to inlet cam timing marks etc..

    Sulfur/rotten egg smell on low mileage 06

    Sorry, I should’ve said an inefficient CAT, it doesn’t mean the CAT is at fault but a fuel delivery issue. A sensor, fuel pressure regulator etc..

    Annoying P0430 need to solve it.

    I am unsure how you can isolate one injector at a time. The only test our diagnostic kit could do was an activation test on a single injector..

    Sulfur/rotten egg smell on low mileage 06

    A bad catalytic converter can smell like rotten eggs

    Annoying P0430 need to solve it.

    for the future, you can take the Temps across the CAT, the gases should be hotter exiting the CAT, use the good CAT for reference...

    Annoying P0430 need to solve it.

    The voltage and the small amount of switching(moving up and down) is good, nothing to worry about, what is good to see is that your B1S2 is now within spec....If that amount of switching brings up a fault code in the US I would be surprised. All looks good at the moment, hope it stays clear.

    Annoying P0430 need to solve it.

    A vacuum gauge will diagnose restrictions in the exhaust...I use a mityvac, they can even bleed your brakes... www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-jp1IIJVVk

    Annoying P0430 need to solve it.

    The problem you have with bank 2 is that the voltage is fluctuating, on a traditional O2 sensor upstream of the CAT you would get a Sine Wave pattern bouncing between 0.1v to 0.9v, if the CAT is efficient the downstream sensor will flat line above 0.45v, now the flat line is important, the more...

    Annoying P0430 need to solve it.

    I would say heat is the biggest cause for clogged CAT’s, they deform.. A low fuel pressure would cause the engine to run hotter and could Damage your AI switches, now I haven’t worked on a vehicle with an Air Pump, the emission laws didn’t require them in the uk. So a lean mixture would cause...

    Annoying P0430 need to solve it.

    Swap the CAT’s over... B1S2 voltage looks low, it is steady so just ignore for now... B2S2 is more so in the correct voltage range but is fluctuating slightly, this shows that the CAT has lost some efficiency.. with low compression across all cylinders it might be worth checking valve...

    Dead - no start, no int/ext lights

    Just my 2 cents, the draw from the battery is too low... Under cranking it can drop between 9 - 10v, I think you need to test at the starter motor for voltage drop, if good then change the starter motor.... To do a voltage drop test on the motor ground just test the voltage between battery...

    Toyota 4.7 HELP! Multiple Misfire Codes (P300, + 8,6,2,7,5) *UPDATE* Motor Blown, Hole in Block

    Swap the Sensors over, from bank 2 to bank 1. Does it only run poor when it has had time to warm up..The system is open loop when cold..

    100 series 4.2td Auto suspension and other issues

    This is from the website above(roughtrax) they have an explanation about the colour banding, you need to check the colour before ordering. Toyota fitted various rear coil types to the 100 series using coloured bands to distinguish them pending loads etc. These coils are ONLY compatible for the...

    100 series 4.2td Auto suspension and other issues

    I would just read through some of Paddo’s posts, he has some very clear instructions on how to check and maintain the AHC. In the uk you have two types of rear springs, there are coloured bands if still visible on the coils, from memory the choice is pink or purple.. I managed to just pull the...
