When trying to start the car, it sounds like the starter clicks a few times and at the same time it seems like the electric goes on and off in synchronization with the starter clicks. The battery seems okay as all the electric works and the headlights are bright.
Car was serviced and a few days later, part of the bottom pan broke off "very cleanly". Looks like it was cut. My brother, a mechanic, says it probably was to allow easier access for oil changes. Toyota repaired it for no cost very quickly. We are concerned that debris will damage the engine as the part is no longer whole but in pieces.

Had the valve cover gasket replaced and now the check engine light won't go out. Car will idle just fine, but acts like it's going to die out when in gear.
it started out with the radio going off and on and the steering wheel would go up and down. the air bag light would come on, then go off. the horn would not work. then suddenly the radio would start to work and everything seem noral. It does this approximately 50 % of the time when i try to start the car

Went out to my truck this morning and the battery was dead because it had been sitting for a few days at 5 degrees. Jump started it and ran fine. Now when the truck is turned off and keys removed the fan starts and stops until the battery is drained again. It almost sounds like its trying to charge the battery? WTF?
