Question about 2007 Toyota Camry
The gas station I fueled from had water mixed with the fuel. My car stopped and after emptying the gas tank from all the fuel and its residuals, my mechanic also cleaned the valves and the pipes leading to the engine, all with clean fuel using the fuel pump from the fuel tank. After all this, the car is still not working properly, it stalls and the service engine light is still going on. My mechanic told me to wait some days until all humidity and moisture disappears. I would like to ask anyone for some piece of advice of what could be going wrong here and what shall I do? Thank you.
The mechanic should have read the trouble code indicated by the check engine light. This will tell you where the problem is. It is possible that the oxygen sensor has been damaged by the water contamination.
BTW there are fuel drying agents sold, which can be added to the tank to bind any water left over.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much GeoffW1. The message from the scanner read that there was a malfunction in the injectors, which he said was normal because of the water in it. He even cleaned them and tested them and they were in optimal condition. I didnt know there were fuel drying agents, I will certainly try these. It seems very logical that this will fix it. Thank you once again for taking your time, will let you know after using the agent what happened."

First of all,did you replace any tire in your car? if so,make sure they all are the same,otherwise those lights will light up,make sure all the abs,sensors are clean,some times they pick up dirt,and that's enough to turn those lights it may be also a wiring problem did they check that? let me know...good luck

Is it a check engine light or Maintenance Required light? If its the maintenance required light, turn the car off, push and hold the trip odometer button while turning the ignition back on. Don't start the car. You'll see five dashes that will count down to none. That'll reset the maintenance required light. Do it after every oil change and it'll come on when its time for an oil change.
