Replacing a cat converter on this van! The Aftermarket item I am looking at says OBDII compatible...will this cat converter still work with the Old OBDI diag SYSTEM?? The O2 sensors are the interface with the OBDI diag SYSTEM sooo it shouldn't make any difference to the Actual Hardware...same size and shape from the PHOTO? I'm an Oregon resident so the EMMISION TESTING is no long a problem... the just want the part to work?? Any experience with this issue would be appreciated!

We have added new coolant also.

I start it and it turns over then chugs and shakes and stalls 2nd try I.can get it into.gear then it stalls out as soon as I touch the gas. By the 4-5 time I can get it to drive but by slowly pressing on the gas. As it chugs then it just fixes itself after driving for 30 seconds. After that it's 100 percent good and idles fine. Please help, thank you.

The van only has 122,000 miles and is in mint shape, literally. Just so you know that I know, the next comment is not referring to the hazard lights. my van won't start, the small marker lights at all four corners of the vans lighting system is flashing along with a relay clicking sound in the cab that matches each pulse of the lights. The vans starter motor will not turn over, battery appears OK, lights and radio work, not even a clicking sound when the ignition switch is turned on. When the hazard lights are turned on, the clicking sound is added to the relay sound and the main running lights are engaged. So I end up with marker and mains pulsing at different intervals and no starting van.

It only started to do this recently. I changed the starter a few years ago when it did it once then but in the last 2 weeks it's done it 3 or 4 times. Once again, if I try to start it 10 to 15 minutes or so after I turn it off and after a long drive it won't start. But if I wait an hour or more, it will start. An authorized Toyota service dept. can't seem to figure out what's wrong with it.

also the ob light is blinking on/off. one of the 2 fault codes says" Shift Solenoid E", Question are those solenoids or sensors located inside the transmission?. Transmission is operating normal don't feel anything wrong with it... Thanks. Rene.

Auto repair company says I need to replace mounts with shocks. Are they the same as the front strut mounts because that is all I can find online?

I have no spark. I don't believe its the ignitor. I checked the d6 and d12 pins on the ecu/ecm. 1.8 ohms.]

thank you

check engine light is on, one diagnosis said the egr needs to be cleaned out. How difficult is this, can an amateur do this>?
