2002 Toyota Echo ProblemsTiming 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).
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.
On certain models, the crankshaft angle sensor has been found to be defective and may be replaced under warranty.
