What would be the most common reason for a code of P0441. improper evap purge flow. And what is a possible repair?

About 7 months ago, my engine light went on. I took it to an auto mechanic. Due to my financial situation, he suggested that I only replace the Oxygen sensor (O2 ring?) in front of the cat converter underneath the car. However, in less than two weeks after the replacement, the engine light went on again. It went on for about 2 months and then went off again (for a few days) before it went on again for another 3 months. As for now the engine light is still off (it’s been on for about 5 days).

So, I took my car to the same mechanic again. He did a brief testing with a small device and nicely suggested that I only need to replace the catalytic converter in front of the engine (p0420). He said that there is no need to replace the one at beneath the car. A friend mentioned that there are two or more gaskets needed to be replaced when replacing the p0420. Dose anyone know what are the gaskets that I also need to replace? Also, if I only replace the p0420 cat converter, will I most likely pass the smog test? My car is in an excellent condition and still runs smoothly despite the fact that I’ve already put nearly 150K miles on it. I hope I've provided thorough information. I will really appreciate that someone will answer my questions and give some advice or suggestions soon. Thank you.

I just bought my '96 Camry and the seller told me that the a/c is no longer working and the compressor would most likely need to be replaced. Does anyone know an average estimate of how much it would cost?

Thanks

cost to replace front struts

Hi- I purchased my car used from Toyota back in 2001. A few years after I got it, I noticed I thought one of the brake light bulbs was having to be replaced too frequently. After the third or so replacement, I noticed that the light casing the socket locks into had melted so badly that I could no longer replace the bulb. I also noticed that the glass bulb itself was showing signs of having been melted! I could replace the bulb and dremel the housing hole open, but the bulb would eventually go out. I took it to Toyota, and they quoted more than I could afford, just for a diagnosis. Now, 3 years later, it has happened to both lights. The situation is very similar to the 97 recall except, from what I can tell, the socket itself is not melting. What is happening here?? I got a new brake housing this past Christmas, b/c the side w/ the initial problem now leaks water into it. I've found a used wiring harness online, and I've purchased new bulbs, a Haynes manual, and a new tail light relay (though, I must admit, I am not sure where it goes...) Please help!!

Just noticed today, that I have a leak on the drivers side floor board. I don't have a sunroof, and the windshield has never leaked. Is it the heater core and realistically what can I be looking at for cost to repair it?

After much discussion and test driving (with a technician) it was determined that severe rattling noise underneath was caused by struts. The least little bump in the road causes rattling noise that could be coming from the front, center or either side underneath. All else was checked out and replaced (brakes, belt noise etc.).
Does this make sense?

As I was leaving the ouside bank teller window my left side rear view mirror hit the banks pole and broke off. need info on replacement or repair of mirror.

My power steering intermittenly goes out will driving. There seems to be no common factor when this occurs. Toyota service says my pump is fine, the fluid level is correct and clean and they greased the u-joints in the steering column. Any ideas?

what is the average repair cost to fix a shift solenoid?

For three days the green light that stays on when the AC is running, started blinking. I turned the AC off and then on and it ran fine. I was driving through flooded streets each time. Yesterday after driving my car with the AC on for about 11/2 hours the AC and the blower for the AC and heater just quit. I have check all fuses and they appear to be fine.

We just got the car a couple of weeks ago, a fine little Camry. Ran perfect until the window decided not to raise up. I kept clicking it, trying to get it to work. The next time I went to crank it, smoke rushed profusely out from under the hood. My husband found the broken belt. I went online hunting a new air commpressor and found info on bypassing it with a shorter belt. Today a man took the clutch off the compressor and said that that was the problem. Of course that just happens to be a problem that one would need a 'real' mechanic for, not just a shade tree deal ya know? What do you guys think? New belt, clutch, or go all the way with an entire compressor?

hi just got a 93 camry 65000 miles stalling and seems no gas at some point car had new pump and punp relay help!!! thanks

The check engine light is on for my 1998 Toyota Camry, 4-cylinder. I had the diagnostic run and purchased a replacement egr valve. After this did not work I searched the internet and found that the more likely faulty part is the EGR vacuum switching valve. I referenced the schematic in the owner’s manual, but cannot find it under the hood. If anyone can give me an exact location it would be extremely helpful in my deciding whether to undertake this repair myself or deal with the light. Any general comments regarding installation would be appreciated as well... estimated time, what parts removed to access,... Thanks
