In 2003, I bought a 2003 V6 Sport Edition 4Runner. From 2004 through 2009, I received an annual P0156 code(Bank 2;Sensor 2 FAILURE), which resulted in replacement of the oxygen sensor that was behind the catalytic converter. In November of 2010, the P0156 code reoccurred. In response to this P0156 code, the dealer replaced the forward and rear oxygen sensor. This cost me over $400. On April 19, 2011, the P0156 code reoccurred again. Please assist. This issue is frustrating and costly(repairs and fuel).

My 4runner limited suddenly stopped starting. It will crank but acts as though it is not getting fuel. How do I check this as I am unemployed and have limited access to a mechanic? Is it more likely to be fuel pump related or timing chain(belt) and how can I tell? Thanks for help!!

Back when my 4R had 88K miles, the brakes didn't feel right, I brought in, dealer said "oh they got at 80K miles" i said "no,not me-there is something wrong w/ the 4R"... ya see EVERY car/truck i've owned i get over 120K on my brakes.. I don't use them- my gas pedal is my first brake pedal - i've been driving 30yrs.. anyways.. they found that it wasn't me -the calipers were frozen. luckily it was still under warranty. So...now 40K miles later, and they're tellin me that my front brakes need replacing. Now they're saying "they go at 40K" OH REALLY? has totoya quality really gone down that much?!?.. so I explain to them that I don't use my brakes. they won't listen. I'm not questioning the need, I'm questioning the reason. If I habitually get over 120K per brakes - don't you think they should be looking at something other than the pads? like calipers? or computer? I had a vehicle in the past that the computer wasn't releasing the brakes all the way -that was at 45K, replaced and when i sold that car w/ 175Kmiles-the brakes were still in good shape. why oh why won't they listen? so my question...this is twice now this 4R has had problems w/ the front brakes... anyone else out there have this problem??
