INSPECTION PROCEDURE

HINT: If DTC P1349 is displayed, check right bank VVT system circuit.
If DTC P1354 is displayed, check left bank VVT system circuit.
Read freeze frame data using LEXUS hand-held tester or OBD II scan tool. Because freeze frame records the engine conditions when the malfunction is detected, when troubleshooting it is useful for determining whether the vehicle was running or stopped, the engine warmed up or not, the air-fuel ratio lean or rich, etc. At the time of the malfunction.
