Toyota Echo Problems

Check Engine Light Due to EVAP System Fault

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.

Cleaning May Correct Faulty Mass Air Flow Sensor

The mass air flow sensor on higher mileage cars occasionally needs to be cleaned or replaced if sluggish acceleration is experienced or the Check Engine Light is illuminated with a mass air flow meter sensor fault code stored.

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.

Right now my check engine l...
