    Hello everyone, I'm relatively new to Fort Collins and need someone in the area that has experience diagnosing/troubleshooting the dreaded P0466 code. I would very much like to avoid letting someone simply throw parts at it. I've done a fair amount of research on this and realize that a certain amount of that might not be avoidable. I just want someone who will at least TRY. Perhaps someone handy with a smoke machine. I wouldn't mind doing this myself, but I simply don't have the space right now. Thank you very much in advance for any info.

    Afterthought. Even putting me in touch with someone who has dealt with this successfully would be nice. I'll buy beer.

    FWIW: 99 Tac, 3.4L 4x4

    Michael works on classic cars as a business related hobby. Don't let that fool you though, he's been a Toyota Master Mechanic for 38 yrs now. If anyone has experience with that code, it would be him. The pdf is something I found that you could show him to jog his memory. He's done some pretty obscure procedures on my 2k 4R 5VZ-FE over the years.

    BTW: He likes PBR, I tend to buy him the 30 can suitcase down the street at Supermarket Liquors.

    Husky Driver, thank you, you truly are the man. I will certainly keep this in mind. Since my initial post I did some troubleshooting and found a crack/leak in my charcoal canister and replaced it last night and cleared the code. I'm going to run the drive cycles today and see if my issue is fixed. If not, off to Choice City I'll go. Thanks again man.
