The EGR port in the intake manifold might have clogged up and restrict or block the flow. It probably has to be cleaned out. Since you said everything was replaced, that's pretty much the only thing left, beside a wiring harness or computer problem. Zee - ZeeTech
could be the ECT PWR button, if your car has one . Drive with it on, and the check engine light might turn off after driving it for around 100 mi without disengaging the ECT PWR. It worked for me, perhaps you to. - andrewjack
I had a garage replace the valve cover gasket on my '99 Toyota Avalon. The check engine light now comes on intermittantly. I took the avalon back to them, but it still comes on. What gives...
...ed that this particular vehicle has an electrical problem which involves the VSC, VSC off, and check engine lights all are on and come back after resetting. Many people have spent a lot of money at the deale...
the check engine light stays on all the time
It is overdue for an oil change so that would probably explain the check engine light but the other two???
