      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

2007 Toyota Rav4 check engine light on

Recommended Posts

Have a 2007 Toyota Rav4 4 cylinder

Check engine,traction control and VSC light on

Periodically engine will run/idle a little rough

Codes C0215 C1201 C1223 P0138

One code is ABS and one is bank 1 sensor 2 which I believe is the rear 02 sensor

A little research on the web with people with similar problem has me leaning towards the 02 sensor.

Also disconnected battery to clear codes and everything worked even the traction control for a while till lights came back on.

Any suggestions?

Im pretty sure its the 02 sensor but would like some other opinions before I change it. I am aware that Toyota has mechanics but Im not paying $500 bucks in tests and parts to screw in a $80-100 sensor. If the sensor doesn't take care of it no big deal the car has 140,000 miles on it and wouldn't hurt to change it anyway.

Was the ABS light on prior to the engine light coming on?

What scan tool did you use to get those codes?

The first C code is a speed sensor code, The second is a code to let you know that the check engine light is causing the ABS and trac lights to come one and the third I am not sure.

The P code is for a O2 sensor that is reading to high. Typically a new O2 will take care of it. Personally I like to see what it is reading on the scan tool compared to the other side. If it is way off kilter I like to unplug it and then see where the scan tool likes to default. If the number changes I can pretty much rule out anything wrong on the vehicle side of the circuit.

had it tested at parts store. Maybe not the best but price is right to get a general idea. All lights came on at same time. Reason leading towards sensor is the occasional rough running.

Well finally got a warm enough day to replace the O2 sensor. The old sensor was black with carbon so Im sure it was due anyway. 20 minutes of work and a $80 sensor and all lights are off and runs fine. Now have to run it a while and see if they stay off.

    • If you weren't going nuts in your man cave or where ever, like all those folks on YouTube, are you really a fan?   My hound was barking like a mad dog to get back in the house because the Mrs and I were screaming bloody murder.   Is this the year? I sure hope so for my 85 year old Dad, who brought me to my first ever NFL game.........the Ahmad Rashad hail Mary catch against the Browns. Which taught me it's never over till it's over.        
    • Looking good PF!!  My daughter came home with a trouble maker last weekend,  cute little poop ( golden retriever) but a handful,  ya that rug doesn't belong there..
    • Yup.....those are the ones I use also. Work  just fine. 1 con.....the rolls are 50 ft. long and don't fit into a machine with bag storage, so you have to cut them by hand. But the price is excellent.
    • Great Saturday to build some pork loin jerky. Got round 1 in the smoker round 2 still in the bucket. 
    • At the KMart at Nicollet and Lake in Minneapolis, there is a flock of pigeons that numbers several hundreds. Last Thursday going home from the Super Market I saw a large hawk make a strike at one, but missed.  This was a pretty dark bird overall and much bigger than a Coopers or a Sharpshin and heavy bodied not at all slender.  The attack was a straight line shot from a street light roost on a bird sitting on the shorter parking lot light post.  It seems to me that the attack was launched from a perch about a block away.  The target flew off and there was no chase, the attacker just returned to its previous roost.  I could not get over into the turn lane and go into the parking lot to get a closer look.  The main flock of pigeons didn't actually seem to notice, and there were even some stragglers. Is it possible that goshawks are starting to come into the city in the winter?  From a goshawk I would have expected a chase.  There are certainly plenty of pigeons, and the local falcons have gone south...  I know they are supposed to avoid human concentrations, but then so are loons and they are now common city residents and rest here when passing through in the spring.  We are getting all kinds of wild life in the Cities these days and not all of it goes around just on two legs.
    • I'm soon to be 40, still have never had a REAL super bowl party!   I will sit and hope.   Besides, at 7:11 last Sunday I pulled something in my neck/shoulder.  Might be a hole in my sister and brother in laws garage ceiling.
    • Lol. Dad and I were talking about this after the game last weekend after I had to tell him over and over that I have not been alive when the vikes have ever played a Super Bowl. You old timers can believe in what you want, but us Gen-X kids are saying SKOL!
    •   I'm sure if I had the time I could have spent 10 more minutes and made a nice one out of Oak or Cherry wood! Or found a blue Genz box on C/list and been done with it!
