It did, thanks. It seems the part I'm looking for is #90573182 and unfortunately doesn't seem to be available anywhere - discontinued it says.

Isn't in amazing that for lack of a $20 part, while it doesn't render the car inoperable, it may as well be, because there's no way I'm going to pass the CA emissions test in just a few months without it.

If you can wait until next weekend I may have a good one on an engine with very bent valves. I intended to look this weekend but I had way too many other chores. If I have a good one I will PM you!

So your saying your local auto parts store doesn't have or can find this part? Just asking since the is a PCV cranckcase vent as others pointed to. If for $20 that pretty good price for it. For something like that getting it new is better for your emissions.

Pulled it this morning and it is in good condition. The hose that runs under the intake was hard so I had to cut it.

Well, thanks to "02 LW300" I have a part that works.




And just for kickers, this is how the repair shop tried to solve the issue... yes, that shiny stuff around the edge is some type of glue that didn't work. Jack@sses!



Thanks again "02 LW300"...!

Thanks again, Andy. I drove to/from work, about 70 miles and no light. Can't say it won't come back on, but the last time I didn't drive 10 miles and it came on. So we'll see what happens tomorrow.

Still no code... but what's really interesting is that my gas mileage has gone up 3 to 4 mpg from the precondition. I had been running 22 to 24 and this morning my tank average was 27...

My last tank was 2 mpg better than ever before I think they are finally back to summer blend fuel.

Iím not certain itís entirely the summer blend that gives better gas mileage, but rather the ambient temperature. For instance, as you may know, your engine uses air and gas in order to generate energy. In fact, it uses huge amounts of the stuff, though only the oxygen is used in combustion.

Anyway, one property of air, like many substances, is that it expands when it warms. This makes less dense molecules and are spread further apart. This means that every gulp of air your car is taking during combustion has less oxygen in it at warmer temperatures, and if there's less oxygen, the engine compensates by using less fuel. If it didn't you'd run really rich. This is bad from a power perspective, but good for economy. The engine is combusting less fuel due to the warm air, improving fuel economy. During winter, the reverse is true--denser air encourages the engine to chuck in more fuel, boosting performance and harming economy.

Out here for the past week it's been cool, maybe high 60's to low 70's, sometimes the lower 60's, for California, thatís cool, so I'm thinking that the pvc vent tube, being cracked was causing me to run rich, hence the code and reduced gas mileage.

If I recall correctly, the L300 has an mpg range of 21 to 29, with roughly 90% of my driving being highway, that would put my mpg average in the 26/27 range, where it is today. I was in the 22/24 range, which puts me on the city side of the mpg range.

It seems this little part helped my LW300 in a couple of good ways.

^^^ That is very good gas mileage for a 3.0 engine. It is agreed that the summer blend gas does offer better mileage.

Glad to hear you got your code problem taken care of.

Absolutely. I drove 288.6 miles and took 10.7 gallons. Now I have this oil leak to get fixed and I should be good for another 185K miles
