    Thanks for posting this list Bigman72
  2. Traction control off after hitting pothole

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    As long as you have a cel, using the switch won't activate it. You can clear the code and activate TC but as soon as it goes off the problem will occur again. I fixed the cel and the problem went away. If TC goes off, I can restore it using the switch.
  3. Where is the ECU located on 1997 Avalon?

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    I bought a clone remote for my '97 Avy. My existing remote(s) work but only when I am close to the car. This one is said to have a 20'-30' range. I've got the remote and the programming instructions are below. I looked under the seats and in the trunk. My guess is that its under the dash...
  4. 1998 Avalon

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    If you're concerned about crc...I can vouch for DeoxIT. The label says "safe on plastics" I have some really nice vintage equipment with lettering and some plastic. Never had a problem with D5. A bit harder to find and more expensive but worth it imo. It's always a good idea to test things...
  5. How much would you pay for my 1996 Toyota Avalon XL?

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    Good ideas on taking better photos from OleAvalon. After reading your CL ad, I think that you are providing too much unnecessary information. While the ad comes off as honest, I'd really trim it down. The bad is peeling clear coat/paint condition which they can see in the pictures....funky...
  6. 1998 Avalon

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    If the problem is with the switch...I'm thinking an electrical contact cleaner may work. I use DeoxIT D5 on my vintage stereo equipment. CRC makes less expensive and more readily available contact cleaners as well. Would be worth a try imo.
  7. Please help with buying the right remote keyless entry

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    BMR...I changed the batteries. The remote I first got with the car didn't work well. I cleaned it as suggested and it worked better. Then I found a second remote that looked like it was used less. That's the one that I use. It works fine as long as I'm close to the car. p.10 owners...
  8. Please help with buying the right remote keyless entry

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    My two remotes work if I'm really close to the car. The contacts were cleaned and one works better than the other. The short range was mentioned in the owner's manual. I'm wondering if the range would be longer on the replacement remotes.
  9. Gen1 Avalons, currently in the Junkyards.

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    I wish that was the case in NY. I'd sure like to replace my front bumper with a color correct one. There are companies that paint a replacement bumper to match Toyota's paint codes. The replacement ones are plastic and I don't want to put one of those on my car.
  10. Excess play in transmission shift lever

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    I just picked up the Haynes manual for the car. I think that I'm going to go ahead and adjust the transmission linkage. It looks like an easy task. Which under-body engine shield should I remove...the one in the front or the second one? I'm thinking it is the second one closer to the the...
  11. Engine swap suggestions

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    TRD made a supercharger for the V6 but its long unavailable. You can search for one but it's price-wise it's likely unobtainium. I have a low-mileage 46K car that my dad bought new many years ago. The stock hp/tq are certainly adequate in a good running car to propel it. I'd like to upgrade...
  12. Excess play in transmission shift lever

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    Thanks OleAvalon...That sounds like a good way to determine where the problem is. Yes its a floor shift. Might be easier to adjust the lever than tearing things down to get to the bushing.
  13. Excess play in transmission shift lever

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    My transmission shifter has a bit of play and slop to it. It shifts fine, all the gears are there. It starts up properly, so I think the neutral safety switch is not the problem. The only problem is reverse. When you engage reverse...reverse gear engages properly. The R dash light and...
  14. Installing a 90-degree o2 sensor socket

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    Answering my own question - yes there was just enough slack in the wire inside the car. I was able to pull out some wire and connect to the 90-degree sensor socket.
  15. Installing a 90-degree o2 sensor socket

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    After much research I bought a 90-degree O2 sensor socket with excellent reviews. I inspected underneath with the car on ramps. The wires from the connection (under the seat) to the sensor is very tight with little slack. Looks like I'll need just a bit more wire to reach the 90-degree angle...
  16. '96 Avalon Mods

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    Polish yellowed headlights.
  17. Maintenance Questions

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    I'm approaching the second oil change on the Avy. I used Valvoline 5w30 Daily Protection Conventional Oil 5 quart container for the first change. I wanted to use it again but my local Walmart didn't have it. Their website doesn't list the 5 qt anymore. Ordered it on Amazon for a nice price...
  18. Question about agm battery

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    I've owned Miatas for over 20 years. I currently have a 2005 Mazdaspeed Miata. They all use AGM batteries from the factory. As Mark said they have different charging requirements than a flooded cell. They discharge differently as well. If ever they need a charge, it must be a very slow...
  19. Traction control off after hitting pothole

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    It worked... I had a cel, cleared the code. Re-started the car and I was able turn the traction control back on.
  20. Traction control off after hitting pothole

    Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    Like the title says...I hit a pothole at fairly low speed and my traction control went off. (traction off light came on) No amount of holding the button and restarting the car turned the light off. Ill check for codes later tonight. I'm hoping that its a code that I can clear. When you hear...
