I have the same error on my 2001 IS300 sedan. I do have a pretty hefty smell of gas when get out of the vehicle (exhaust smells like fresh gas) I need to replace my cat which I have the replacement already.
I just want to see if you guys think my issue will be the same thing before I start buying the parts to repair this. Also is there any kind of picture manual which has part numbers because the plastic clip that holds my hood rod is broken and I'm not sure what the part number is.
You are throwing DTC P0440 as well? Is so, start with the easy things as mentioned in my post on the first page. Check the seal ln the gas cap and check to make sure the EVAP lines are connected, such as the one for the CC VSV in the first post. Once you have the code and check the various items, try resetting the code to see if ir even comes back.
As far as getting part numbers, I tend to use Sewell's website. The hood prop clip you are looking for is as follows:
53455 Lexus part #53455-53010
HOOD SUPPORT ROD CLAMP, $23.08
here's a link to access parts. There is a complete breakdown of EVERY part.
2001 IS300: OEM Body (HOOD LOCK & HINGE) Replacement Parts
I thought i would report back about the car. Check engine light is gone, its been smogged and registered as well :-)
To summarize what happened... My car was throwing p0440 code which has something to do with the EVAP system. The car wasnt able to pass smog with this code so i asked around and a few friends that work at the lexus dealership in town suggest changing the rollover valve which is located above the fuel tank.
Upon further investigation i found that lexus doesnt call it the "Rollover Valve" but instead they call it a "Fuel Tank Overfill Check Valve." The fuel tank needs to be dropped to get to the part per the service manual. I had some estimates on how much the dealer would charge and it came to around $700.
I was looking at the blueprint for the fuel tank and found exactly where the valve is located and basically its off to passenger side of the hump under the back seat. The bottom of the backseat needed to be removed just like when youre doing a fuel pump. I sawzalled a hole big enough to get to the part, not a complete hole but just enough to flap open. I replaced it and put sound deadener on top of the hole. I would not suggest doing it this way since i did come really close to cutting a rubber fuel line, so please dont be a noob like me. I know its ghetto but i was on a deadline and wanted to get the car on the road immediately for the least amount of money possible. Interior noise hasn't increased whatsoever if anyone is wondering.
Im really glad to say all is well with the car now and i only used oem parts from the dealer. Decided to change the gas cap as well since the car has 210k miles.
Heres the part #'s just in case someone needs them.
7739053010 - Fuel tank overfill check valve
7717712020 - Gasket for overfill check valve
7730008010 - Gas cap!
Finally part no!! thx!
how much did the part cost and how much was labor?
