Like how did you go about scanning your car, the picture looks like you did it with your phone or what other device can one use.
I bought OBD11 scanner and downloaded the car scanner app from playstore.

Greetings people.

My cousin bought a car in Lagos and paid for it to be driven to Benin but before he got to Benin, the engine failed.

According to mechanic report, the oil pump got bad and it was still being driven.

Right now, he needs to replace the engine.

The car is in Benin. A 2003 Toyota corolla.

Please any experienced expert in the house?

What's the cost of fixing it?

SRS warning light /Airbag light is the only light on my, service reminder indicators and indicators light.
Was just wondering why my scanner can't detect the airbag error code. Shaking the airbag cable wire under the passenger seat didn't clear the light like I watched on YouTube

Good morning Sir's

Kindly see the attached picture for the error codes from my car. The car is Toyota Camry 2007 xle.

Based on my mecho recommendation, i recently put catalyst in the car, so i expect that i shouldn't be having p0420 again.

About the other code (p0172), please i need guidance on it, there is no money and as such i can't afford my mechanic to be second guessing and treating what's not.

Thank you.

One chance bro...

Even the mechanic that assured you of his work will advise you to go buy engine at this point.
It's just 6 weeks ago. And he assured all that time
He just changed some plugs and used petrol to wash some parts too.
