do you have the duel climate controls? if so, have adjusting the passenger control made a difference? EXAMPLE: http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/ODUzWDEyODA=/z/jDIAAOSwu-BWQ4oN/$_57.JPG?set_id=880000500F


You need to ck obd2 it will tell you where to look for problem auto zone has free ck on that does it run ok,what's it doing and how long has it been on for because if o2 sensors are bad and yo caught It in time replace the, but when your replacing them feel the air comin out need to start car with o2 sensor out see how much air is coming out it it does a lot of air convert or are also clogged the reason I say o2 sensor because it time a lot of them just simply go bad around the mileage but please get code first no guess work That car I believe has four seniors so you need the code kinda hard because if convert or bad it's going to throw a code for o2 sensor then fix that and the light comes back on so replace convert or then the o2 in front is bad light come back on. So thats why you check to see how much air is coming out convert or is clogged and no guess work good luck if you no a back yard guy they can do this but at of them do not no little tricks check o2 hole for sensor worked for Toyota for 23 years I no a little I worked with 54 techs so I do no a little but get the code with obd2 let me no I'll try to help by


I'm sorry wrong answer problem this ca has a inside filter need to be changed its problems clogged it's behind the glove box it called a ac filter or environment filter inside ck with dealer or google it
