Oxygen sensors for 2011 Toyota Rav 4 Limited
The oxygen sensor code showed for my check engine and the rear one was replaced, only to have t he same lights and code pop up again within hours. Brought it back to the place and they said it could be a faulty one, they replaced with a new one and same code is still showing and check engine lights still on. they said that it could be the other senser in the front that is not working correctly and needs to be replaced. I only have 44, 000 miles on this vehicle. Any ideas?
OK now I don't want the step on toes or cause you any grief ('cause you're having enough stress about this already). But in my opinion, if the shop/mechanic is not able the solve this kind of problem at the first try and he/they are now asking you to pay them to change parts until they luck into a fix or you run out of money or patience; then I suggest going to a Toyota dealer to at least get their evaluation of the problem and to offer their plan of action and cost. If that makes since, then you can have them so the work or take your Rav to someone else with more confidence, of what needs to be done and the price from Toyota, to compare their bid to. Good Luck
I have the same problem, Toyota charges 87.00 to tell you what the code is showing is wrong. Someone else is saying had it repair and it did not remedy the situation. In my case not only the lights come on but the traction while driving is slow and it feels like is going to die any minute. I agree with the person that says it seems to be a repetitive issue Toyota should have a recall
