    99’ Land Cruiser Pulling Right - Cranking noise front left wheel / tire

    Your descriptions "pull and jerk right along with a knocking / cranking noise" "pulled off the road and limped to a gas station" are unclear. It's hard to say if you're talking about a front end issue. As I could also take your description as and engine or transmission issue. Who's your Mechanic?

    2004 lx 470 cv axle replacement

    I've not heard of "typical cv axle knocking noise that happens when I am making a turn. " What I hear is a clicking sound on turns.

    2001 LX470 no crank when cold, Only when Warmer than 40f

    Try shifting into "N" and or slamming into "P". If bad starter we'll typically see dash lights dim, same with bad battery if any lights at all. 11.4V is a bit low. So if above Neutral switch is not issue, try charging battery above 12.7V.

    Annoying P0430 need to solve it.

    Probably was the EFI fuse, which was replaced. But that would not likely have anything to do with P0430 (BK2 CAT). It can be a wonky O2 sensor. But most times, the CAT is bad. With a CAT failure, we need to look closely, for upstream possible issue. If not in flood or CAT has taken a bad...
