I recently had a diagnostic test because CEL, VSC, and 4WD/TRAC (Check Engine Light, Vehicle Stability Control, and 4-Wheel Drive/Traction Control lights went on. The code was P0138-I had the Bank 1 Sensor 2 replaced yet the lights above went back on in a day or 2.
I read that the problem may be a defective charcoal canister filter which costs about 1500.00 to repair. How can I determine what the real issue is before dishing out that much $$$. Will Toyota pay for those repairs if it is a defective canister filter?

Driving home from work my wife had the car lose power and the mentioned lights came on. Now every time I start the car those lights come on and stay on. The engine is "sputtering" for lack of a better word. Please help?

I just had the transmission rebuilt the day before this happened. I was driving down the road and the car applied the brakes by itself
