[quote author=Aiykay post=52390214]Compliments good people, could someone help break down this error code in a layman's language P1150 error code. Car involved is a lexus Rx300. Thanks
A/F sensor is the most likely component causing this DTC, pls get it properly inspected. Also fuel pressure, injectors , induction system can also cause this

It's called DRL (day running light) not all have it, but most that come from Canada and some parts of America always have this function. In some cars you can switch it off but in the sienna you can't switch it off for the 1st generation.

Good day everyone. I drive a Camry 2003. I've never had any part of the engine touched or changed any part since I bought it in November 2015. But just last month in December till date, the car Idle is below 500RPM and as a result it makes my engine vibrate a little only if the car is not in motion. Just want to no if this is normal for a vehicle. But aside that, it doesn't switch off even when the ac is on and works perfectly well.

Re: Car Talk Chat Room by AmeLonRo(m): 10:07am On Jan 21
Thanks a lot nurey. Wont that )DRL) affect the vehicle battery?

Also how does the fuel economy of sienna compare with Honda bullet?

My sienna uses the DRL and I used the bulb for two years before I changed it, I also used the follow come ba3 for 2 years so I don't think it affects anything. The sienna Is a V6 engine and heavier than the bullet so the Honda has a better fuel economy than the sienna.

It's not normal, the RPM is too low, I think you need to check your air flow mechanisms, there could be a leak it's clogged or dirty.

Your engine idles around 700-800rpm
Your IAC valve and throttle body ASSY needs to be cleaned.
If you're in Abuja, call 07034581213.

What's wrong with your GTi? Is it dsg or manual?
Re: Car Talk Chat Room by Chynx(m): 7:51am On Jan 24
Good day everyone!

I use a 2005 Toyota Prado (VX). The issue I'm currently having is that it now consumes too much fuel and often drags or tutters while trying to accelerate. Sometimes, it fails to respond when I try to rev. It just continues to run on idle mode until I turn off the engine and crank it up again.

I've had the injector nozzles serviced and the fuel filter in the engine compartment, washed. I noticed a slight improvement which lasted for just a couple of days...then back to same ol'behaviour.

Please guys, I need your advise on what to do.

Thanks.
