From what I remember it's typically the EGR or VSV, since you replaced the EGR. One is a bitch to replace and the other isn't too bad. Can't remember which is which.

Are these scan tools an OBD-II thing?

I just get codes like 2 blinks-1.5 second gap-6 blinks for A/F mix malfunction, one blink-1.5 second gap-4 blinks for O2 failure, 4 blinks-1.5 second gap-1 blink for TPS error.

Yessir! Think of them as a way to speak to the soul of your vehicle.

Default fixed it. sorta

So based loosely on the discussion of disabling the EGR system altogether found in this thread http://forum.ih8mud.com/80-series-te...oyota-way.html among others, I decided to experiment and have bypassed my faulty temp sensor. It's still installed, but I unplugged in then jumpered the wires in the harness, as if the sensor is "on" all the time now.

So far it's been 2 weeks and about 200 miles, and no CEL . Also a lot of idling, including the SNR, highway driving, commuting, all the conditions that would have tripped it before. So no CEL means problem solved right?

Find a way to hide it or make it look normal. The emissions monkeys would be drawn to that like a bear to bait.

I'm sure NakGadget will come up with something.

Ya think? yeah I'm going to jumper the sensor wires together under the sheathing then plug it back in, you won't be able to tell the wires don't go all the way to the sensor. This was just phase 1 to make sure this was the path I wanted to take..

Hum.. that maybe just my ticket too. Mine comes on randomly then goes a way for a while then rears it's ugly head again.

Well, I had checked the other componets and then checked the temp sensor. I found the sensor to be not reading the exhaust temps(no resistance values with heat). So low flow exhaust gas code when the computer checks it.
First one I have found to have failed.
