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.

Check engine light and vehicle stability control light came on. Strong smell of sulphur fumes filled the cabin since failure of the catalytic converter and charcoal canister. It was determined at the dealership that the charcoal canister failed and the catalytic converter needed to be replaced. So far has not been replaced due to parts out of stock and is scheduled to be repaired on sept. 24, 2004 under warranty. This happened to a brand new Toyota rav 4 at 2300 miles.
