I have taken the car to the dealer to have this problem fixed twice in six weeks. The first time I was told it was a part in the emissions system. I was charged 125 for diagnostics plus the repair. The second time, two weeks later they told me the gas cap needed to be replaced and again charged 125 plus the cost. It is on again and I am wondering if it is safe to drive with the light on. I need the car this week but I am not going back to the dealer...

I've been driving my Toyota Solara V6 SE for 5 1/2 years with the check engine light on. I had the code checked the first month, and they said it was the Gas Cap/O2 Sensor. Still on and still driving..... 60,000 + miles since it turned on.
