Is it more likely the timing or oxygen sensors?


Asked by Aug 02, 2015 at 11:12 PM about the 2002 Toyota RAV4

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my 2002 rav4 has 300,000 miles. It has developed a miss. I had the codes checked and
they are showing cylinder miss fires and sensor errors. If I hold the rpm's to about 2800-
3000 it smoothes out better.

Misfires are related to the coils and spark plugs. What are the code #'s?
