    my stubborn old man didn't want to put any more money into it and we got rid of it. we unhooked the battery and let it sit all night and it ran great for hours then would start to act up again.i hope if anyone else has this problem it will work for them. i thank you dearly for looking into our problem :)

SOURCE: Toyota Matrix Check engine light is on

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.

If you have a tps and air flow meter you have a 22re fuel injection.
Check for codes by jumping TE1 and E1 or jumping diagnosis connector.


The 22re will run with out the tps(throttle position sensor) plugged in. But it will not run with the air flow meter unplugged. The air flow meter controls the fuel pumps voltage.
go to
This page tell you how to test those sensors. Then we can go from there.

The fuel pressure regulator may be shot also, but we will see.

I hope this was helpful.

SOURCE: 2001 Camry 100,000+ miles. Check Engine Light is on.

Yes they would go out at the same time. Yes, topping off will cause this problem. It says not to top off on most pumps, not the owners manual. No doesn't seem like they are out of line on their prices. It looks to be less than 2 hours labor, which is correct.

SOURCE: Car stalls when accelerating

I would replace that tank (asap), so there can be a cap back on it.
With the cap off, the fuel system can't build up any pressure to hold the gas in the lines.

Don't you always start will check light issues first,

There are codes sometimes even without check lights
You need a professional scanner or PC Scan Software

The fuel pump may be seizing up mechanically or have an

be nice there also
