1999 Toyota Camry 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 77335 miles
I just got a check engine light on my 1999 Toyota Camry V6 sedan. My OBD2 car-code scanner software reports FAIL on these two items:
Under the OBD2 Mode $06 category:
TID " $07 Manuf Def", CID $01, Value -1 FAIL
TID " $07 Manuf Def", CID $10, Value -1 FAIL
I believe it refers to Bank 1, Sensor 2 Oxygen Sensor from what I read on a web search.
But in researching what O2 Sensor(s) to buy, it is confusing the way the auto parts stores list these O2 sensors. Some say that two " Before Catalytic Conv" are required, Some say one. And then the kicker is that one site warns that some Toyota Camry's with a VIN " F" or " G" letter, use an " Air to Fuel Ration" sensor instead of an O2 sensor and they say do not confuse the two similar looking sensors? So how do I know what sensor my particular car has? My VIN number starts with a " JTZ.&Quot; or something. Is it by beginning letter of the VIN number? Also, if I have the O2 sensor model Camry V6, which sensor is Bank 1, sensor 2? And where is it located. I see two similar looking O2 sensors under my hood. One is right up front on the exhaust pipe, the other is behind the engine in a tight spot between the firewall and engine. I take itthose are the two " Before Catalytic converter" O2 sensors? I don't see the " After Catalytic converter" O2 sensor. Any help would be appreciated.
