Question Answered: Recurring Check Engine Light

1. Check for intake air leaks, especially in the hose going from the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor to the turbo inlet.
2. Check the boost pressure sensor with a scan tool while driving under a load. Boost should be about 13 PSI.
3. Check the boost pressure control system. Check the vacuum hoses from the intake manifold to the boost control valve, and the hose going to the turbo waste gate. 4. check the intake manifold gasket for leaks , expecially when cold, because as the engine warms up te gasket expands and actually seals the leak

if you are just changing the filter and fluid it will take approx. 4.3 qts , the entire system holds 9.5 , the torque converter holds approx 5.2 qts , witch you will not be able to drain, just dropping the trans pan. SOme fords do have a drain plug on the torque converter itself where you can drain that also

Question Answered: Fuel pump and fuel filter
October 07, 2009, 08:33 PM
Hello , if your car is stalling at idle and running fine other than at idle chances are that the fuel delivery system is fine. If your car has over 50,000 miles , I would suggest cleaning out the throttle body. disconnect the air intake hose that comes from the air cleaner to the engine, open up the throttle plate . and take a tooth brush with some intake cleaner on it, you can get the cleaner at the parts tore , and scrubb aall the carbon off around the throttle plate.. you may also have an issue with the idle air control motor , however that would more than likely cause the check engine light to come on.. also check for any vacumn leaks ... also check the air intake tube that runs to the throttle body for any cracks or rips , because the mass air flow sensor may be reading false air ..

Question Answered: Check Engine Light On

Yes any lexus dealer would be able to fix your problem , however it might be quite costly. If you are getting a code p2195 , yes that does mean the oxygen sensor for bank 1 is reading lean .. That does not mean that the sensor itself is bad . You may have a vacumn leak somewhere causing false air entering the engine. also a dirty mass air flow sensor will create the same results.
