  1. Update: All spark plugs have been replaced. swapped coils from 1,3,5 to 2,4,6. Replaced A/F B1S1 Still getting the A/F sensor CEL and Misfires only on 1,3,5 side. I found that the Throttle Body's may need a gasket replacement, because spraying carb cleaner at it is effecting the idle, so those are next to be replaced. I am now thinking of checking fuel to the injectors, injectors themselves, fuel filter... Any other suggestions? If anyone knows the specific voltages and/or anything else that could help, please let me know! Thanks
  2. So in the attached image you can see the list of dtcs I have on a 2000 rx 300 AWD I have tested coils and replaced spark plugs on 2-4-6, all should be in perfect shape. I have tested unplugging the coils I could easily access with the entire intake assembled, which seemed to not affect the idle, leading me to believe that perhaps those spark plugs in the back are no good. I am going to head back out now to work on getting to and replacing the 1-3-5 spark plugs, if I can manage. 1. With the intake and throttle body(s?) removed, is it worth any attempt to remove the o2 sensor from above? I tried from below several times, with PB blaster let to sit overnight, to no avail. 2. As I was taking off the intake filter lid, I could swear that one of the two "vacuum" hoses directly behind it, may have been unattached. I followed the one that is attached and it seems to lead to the Fuel Injector rail for 2-4-6. With this logic, would it make sense that the other tube leads to 1-3-5 injectors, and all this could have been from the vacuum leak causing those cylinders to run lean/misfire? 3. Is there anything else I should check while I have the throttle body's off (and cleaned up beautifully) like the MAF, etc? I do have a multimeter, but I have only tried using it a couple of times and am not 100% on which items to check for which values. 4. Is there anyone here with any insight on what values to check on my Code Scanner's "Live Data"? I found a great OBD2 scanner, but I don't know how to use these tools to verify the fix... My plan now is to replace the 1-3-5 spark plugs, reassemple the intake, verifying all connections are made and see how she runs... but I will work at the o2 sensor or anything else possible, while it's apart. Thank you if you read this! I am new to the forum, as I just purchased this car for my wife, so thanks in advance, if anyone hears this! Steve
