  1. 2002 Avalon how to clear code p1663 OCV/VVT -RH bank malfunction

    Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    I bought an Toyota oem vvt solenoid from Amazon for $50 and installed it today, but I still couldn't clear the p1663 code and after driving about 15 miles, the p1354 code came back. Not sure what to try next.
  2. Brand New Owner of 2004 Camry - Tire recommendations

    Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    The stock tire on the XLE is 215-60-16 V rated. I would go with the General Altimax RT43, which consumer reports rated highly and you can get for less than $100 per tire at Walmart. I have them on my 2004 XLE and they have good traction and are quiet.

    it was too cold this weekend. I will clean the old one next weekend and try it to see if code 1663 goes away when I reset.

    Thanks, but they are not interchangible, the mounting bracket is different on each.

    I got the OCV valve on ebay, there is no maker on it. I bought the left bank OCV from the same seller and it has been good.

    I'll give that a try this weekend. When I replaced the left bank OCV, the filter was clean. I still don't understand why the p1663 code won't clear.

    They aren't oem ocv's but the code 1354 for the right bank ocv didn't come back, so i'm assuming that it is working properly. What I don't understand is why code 1663 doesn't erase using my odbii reader even thought the reader says that it has been erased.

    I have a 2002 Avalon with 158K miles. I got engine code last month p1349 so i replaced the vvt solenoid and the new solenoid fixed the issue. A few weeks later I got a p1663 and p1354 codes for the right bank malfunction so I replaced the vvt solenoid and cleared the codes. The p1354 code hasn't...
  9. 08 Japan built alternator compatibility

    Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    Rockauto.com has some for Japan made vehicles. You might have to match up the pulley and plug to your car to make sure that it fits. Also the Denso website might help you find a part number that works. Also the Solara is made in Japan your camry may take same parts as the Solara.

    I have a 2002 Avalon with a rusted right rear brake line. Does anyone have any experience repairing or replacing these. Do you have to drop the fuel tank to replace them.

    89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    I had the same problem with my 2002 Avalon with 3.0 v6. I cleaned the throttle body and the Idle Air Control Valve and it starts and runs like new. You can search to find instructions on how to do.
  12. Fixed: Radiator Fan Constantly Running - A/C Pressure Switch Bad

    Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I have a 2004 Camry 4 cyl with 106,000 miles. The fans are running whenever the A/C or defrost is turned on, even when engine is cold. Where is this switch located. Can anyone provide a picture. Can this be replaced without evacuating and then taken to a mechanic to do the evacuation and...
  13. 2004 Camry Cooling fans running on startup

    Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I replaced the battery and the fans are no longer running. It seems that the whining noise is due to the tensioner pulley not spinning. Do I have to replace the whole tensioner assembly or can I just replace the pulley.
  14. 2004 Camry Cooling fans running on startup

    Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    The fans aren't running when I turn on the key, but I think the battery is too low and the car won't start. I have to jump the battery and see if the fans will run.

    Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I checked and it is plugged in correctly. Does that mean that the sensor is bad and needs to be replaced.
