2001 Toyota Echo Problems

Check Engine Light Due to EVAP System

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an evaporative emission (EVAP) system fault. Our technicians tell us these EVAP system faults can be difficult to diagnose but it is not uncommon to find a failed charcoal canister or a loose or worn gas cap.

Timing chain/sprockets may need replacement due to wear and problems with VVTi

Occasionally the timing chain and sprockets need replacement due to premature wear and problems with the variable valve timing system (VVTi).

Crank sensor may fail, warranty may apply

On certain models, the crankshaft angle sensor has been found to be defective and may be replaced under warranty.
