Wortown, before you waste your time and money, try to get the dealer to pay for it and make a claim under the "New Vehicle Emission Warranty"

The federal government requires two other warranties. The Exhaust Emission Warranty extends for 2 years/24,000 miles for emission-related parts and 8 years/80,000 miles on the catalytic converter and any on-board diagnostic device. The Passenger Restraint Warranty covers seat belts and airbags for 5 years/50,000 miles.

Marc drives a Solara...hence WortownSOLARA :D

U know I'm playing. I just wanna make sure the right info is out there. I'm sure all of us '99+ produced Camry/Solara wished the VSV was under the engine cover for easier servicing :mad:

There are two VSVs, one in the engine compartment and one under the car near the gas tank. The one related to the EGR code P0401 is located in the engine compartment...
