I have a 2000 Solara with the 3.0 litre V-6 engine.
I also have a Scan-Gauge II.
Besides the built-in guages, the SGII can have other gauges added,
which may or may not find data in the car's computer to display.
That is, not every gauge applies to every car, but I think some of the
ones below apply to this Toyota.
"Most Asian, European, and Chrysler manufactured vehicles used the ISO
protocol from 1996 to 2002. From 2003 to 2007 their vehicles will
either support ISO or CAN."
In my 2000, ISO mode was used, and among the possibly available ISO
measureable things ("gauges") are 02 Sensor Data and Fuel Trim Data,
Air/Fuel ratio and Catalyste Temperature each of which uses the terms
Bank and Sensor, but I don't know what this engine has .
For 02 Sensor Data, there are separate gauges for Bank 1, Sensor 1, 2,
3, and 4, and Bank 2, Sensor 1, 2, 3, and 4. That's 8 possible
entries, but iiuc my engine has only 2 oxygen sensors, one for the
odd-numbered cylinders and one for the even. . Is that right?
What does it mean by Bank? The odd or even numbered cylinders? That
seems reasonable except for the next category:
For Fuel Trim Data. there are separate gauges for Short Term Fuel Trim
Bank 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 So it couldn't be the odd versus
For Air to Fuel Ratio it has
A/F Ratio Bank 1 - Sensor 1, 2, 3, 4
A/F Ratio Bank 2 - Sensor 1, 2, 3, 4
Alt A/F Ratio Bank 1 - Sensor 1, 2, 3, 4
Alt A/F Ratio Bank 2 - Sensor 1, 2, 3, 4 and
Alt A/F Ratio Bank General
-- Does this engine have Air/Fuel ratio sensors?
For Catalyst Temperature, it has
Catalyst Temperature Bank 1, Sensor 1 and 2 and
Bank 2, Sensor 1 and 2.
--Does this engine have Catalyst Temperature sensors?
Thanks for any help.
Scan Gauge II costs about $150. It reads and removes trouble codes,
it displays a lot of engine info, it keeps track of yesterday's and
today's info separately, and has sort of performance measurement
