Just picked up an 02 TL-S with 334k on it. Its been through 2 tranny's, last one at 300K and a couple timing belt changes. Other than the hazed headlight lens you wouldn't believe there are so many miles on it.

230000 and 1st p0401 code

I owned this 99 since new, up until the last few years ran nothing but 91oct or better. Fuel prices led me to start running 89 and 87 octane fuel. Now I have a P0401 code. I have read that is a common problem and that there was even a recall (but I do not recall one) every 75000 miles or so. Did the use of premium fuel keep the passage clean and out of EGR trouble all those years? I plan on pulling the intake manifold and see how that looks this week. Any words of wisdom?

As for looks it looks new thanks to new paint and body work after hitting a deer at 4am doing 70mph, no air bag deployment, insurance totaled it but I took a reduced payment keep the car and had it fixed. It was all panel damage except the front radiator support had to be cut out and replaced. The deer got the the hood, ft fenders and rear fender.

I liked our 90 Legend better, but the 99 is a much better car IMO than the 2006 TL we have.

Purchased my '99 TL w/o NAV in July, 1999. It just ticked over 201,000 miles. It has been generally reliable, but needed a transaxle rebuild at 109,000 miles. It has also been plagued with rust issues. In 2013, the power steering fluid hard lines rusted out and required front subframe removal to replace. I'm currently well into a DIY fuel tank replacement project due to slow fuel leaks from major rust along the front seam of the tank. That repair entails removing the exhaust pipe and rear subframe, a job that revealed rusty brake lines, fuel lines, and many bolts too rusty to remove. The original stainless exhaust system is fairly intact, but the converter and muffler flanges are too rusty to reuse. Both mufflers have enough rust to warrant replacement. I tried purchasing a replacement exhaust pipe from the converter to the mufflers, but Advance Auto cancelled the order after the manufacturer quoted them several months delivery. I'll keep looking for another aftermarket exhaust pipe. I had to disconnect the parking brake cables inside the car because the rear brake backing plates were too rusty to remove the other ends. Chicago winters take a toll on many parts exposed to road salt, snow, slush, etc. Surprisingly, most of the floor underside looks like new.
