#2 - Catalytic Convertor problem of the 2002 Toyota RAV4
VIN of the vehicle was JTEGH20V92_. My 02 Toyota Rav4 check engine light comes on and I found out that my O2 sensors are reading below of what they're supposed to read. The O2 sensors are priced way to extreme, one of them is $400 and the other is $150 and there are 2 of each. I believe that they should be working right cause my car is less than 2 years old. This catalytic convertor issue occurred Friday, October 22, 2004.
