My 2008 Toyota Corolla S check engine light is on due to a sensor that controls speed? Dropped the transmission pan an changed the fluid was going to change sensor but they sent the wrong one. Put fluid back in an the light went out for a good while,that was last year so it passed inspection. Now back on for this year an wondering if their was a easier way of getting the light out. Need it quick because my tag has already ran out because of this light! Don't have the money to take to a mechanic.
The original computer was replaced in 2009 by a Toyota recall. In 2016 the check engine light came on and I was told to replace the computer. That cost $3000. It was fine for a year? and now the light is off and on frequently since Nov. 2017. The car runs fine. Mechanic wants to start over.
Ignore it or sell it?
