P0401 Exhaust Gas Recirculation Insufficient Flow Detected

P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
P0301 Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected
P0303 Cylinder 3 Misfire Detected
P0305 Cylinder 5 Misfire Detected


I would check out the EGR valve. That maybe what is causing all the misfires.

if you look on the center council where the shift lever is you will see a small plastic button on the drivers. Remove the button. Insert a small screwdriver into the hole and push down. You will then be able to move the shift lever into nuetral and push the car.

water leak on fwd passenger side after every rain storm

This 1997 4 door Camry has water pouring in during a rain shower while parked. It's enough to cause a puddle in the fwd floor passenger area. I have removed the glove box and plastic panels to expose all of the computer boxes and all I found was a few water droplets on some electrical connectors behind a plastic panel below and to the right side of the glove box, just forward of the front door. The water has to be pouring in from somewhere in that area to accumulate so much in the floor. I have tried using a water hose to pour over the seals and still cannot find the leak. It's like a big hole somewhere letting all of this water in, but it only seems to happen when it rains. Can you please help ? I am at my wits end. Thank you for your time.

If your car has a sunroof, there are drains from the front corners of the sunroof, and they drain down the sides of the windshield pillars, and then empty out on the ground.

What I would do is open the surnroof, and pour water into the front corners, and then oobserve where the water drains out. If you have a difference in water drainage between the left and the right sides, I would think that you may have loose sunroof drain. They commonly come loose at the sunroof corners. This will allow the water to pass down the windshield pillar, and onto the floor.

Also, I would check the condensate drain tube for blockage. Pull back the carpet, under the glove box, and fins a black hose that pokes thru the firewall. Pull it out, and see if it is blocked internally. If this tube is clogged, water will build up in the heater box, as the black tube is the drain for the heater box.

One of the two above solutions will cure your problem. I see both quite often.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.
