Toyota Matrix P0740: Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Malfunction

P0740 is one of the most common transmission trouble codes. It means that the Matrix‘s computer has detected that there is an issue with the torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid circuit.     P0740: Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Malfunction   The TCC “locks” the drivetrain, which allows for a true mechanical connection between the transmission … Read more Toyota Matrix P0740: Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Malfunction

Toyota Matrix P0330: Knock Sensor ” Bank 2″ – Circuit Malfunction

  P0330 is a powertrain OBDII trouble code that has the same meaning for the Toyota Matrix as it would any other vehicle. By definition, it means that the vehicles ECM/PCM isn’t getting the proper signal from the knock sensor. Clearing this code typically requires a new knock sensor. The second most common cause is … Read more Toyota Matrix P0330: Knock Sensor ” Bank 2″ – Circuit Malfunction

Toyota Matrix P0161: Heated O2 Sensor – Performance | Bank 2 Sensor 2

P0161 is a very common OBDII code that occurs in the Toyota Matrix. It is typically caused by a failure in one of the elements that heat the oxygen sensors, specifically bank 2 sensor 2. Replacing the Oxygen sensor will fix the problem a majority of the time. Some of the other causes of P0161 … Read more Toyota Matrix P0161: Heated O2 Sensor – Performance | Bank 2 Sensor 2

Toyota Matrix P0138: Oxygen Sensor High Voltage (Bank 1 -Sensor 2)

  P0138 is a common OBDII code that occurs in many vehicles, including theToyota Matrix. The code is triggered when: The voltage at the sensor remains above threshold for 20 seconds or more Voltage to the sensor is to high (wiring problem, think short) Bad O2 sensor itself There are also some less likely problems … Read more Toyota Matrix P0138: Oxygen Sensor High Voltage (Bank 1 -Sensor 2)

Toyota Matrix P0136: O2 Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 – Sensor 2)

  P0136 is a common OBDII code that occurs in the Toyota Matrix. It is typically caused when the O2 Sensor voltage is not within normal operating range. Bank one will be the side of the engine with cylinder 1 in the firing order.    Toyota Matrix P0136 Symptoms Often, the only symptom of P0136 … Read more Toyota Matrix P0136: O2 Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 – Sensor 2)
