5FSE Emission test failure, what to look at?
1997 Camry 2.2 liter 5fse automatic. It runs smoothly, power is good, never stalls or sputters.
I don't know this engine, only had it for a year, and only ever changed oil on this one.
Had a test last week and it did not pass. The mechanic told me to change lambda sensor and clean or change plugs.
Then I have been reading here on the forum what to check, clean or change:
* EGR valve
* Battery clamps
* Run through a tank with Seafoam added (are there other brands in case I can't find seafoam?)
* Plugs (how do I know if they're bad? Should I hold it against the engineblock and watch for regular sparks?)
* Check air filter (I did, it's clean)
I don't have the testpaper here to see which value was off and by how much, I'll add that later.
Is the lambda sensor needed? If so, which brand?
All help and input is appreciated.
