Re: Fuel smell 2002 L200

Re: L-Series Reliability

Just signed up. Still not enough yet to plug into an L-Series survey. It says, "New cars are added to the survey around the beginning of each month." So will check back.

Re: Will not start! Frustration!

Re: Catalytic Converter shot?

I have to agree with twhitney on your thermostat. It's stuck open and the bad smell is from running rich and unspent fuel combusting in the cat. I'd gamble that your mpgs have been running lower. ...

Re: squeak/rattle at highway speed

Yes, it certainly could be many things! If the sound is toward the center, maybe it's the cover/door on the cabin air filter? Even just opening and closing that door would also give you a moment to...
