Question about 2001 Toyota Sienna

1 Answer

The "engine check" light is on and a local Toyota dealer said that the computer board is bad. Does it need to be replaced right away? They said it could be an expensive fix? Can I get this fix at other car dealer? The car is still operating normally in the last three weeks with the warning light? Can I buy the computer board and install myself? Thanks for the advice.

If it runs sufficiently then there's no reason to do it immediately. generally, computer replacements are expensive because the computer itself is expensive. varying by age and vehicle, they tend to range from $200-$2000 just for the part. installation generally is not too labor-intensive but usually requires some dashboard disassembly. if you are having this done at a dealer then you're probably spending at least 50% more than what you would spend at a smaller shop or auto repair chain. you could potentially go on indefinitely w/out changing it if it has no driveability problems. however, if you live in a state w/ stricter emissions requirements, then you likely will be made to replace it when you get your next annual inspection

You have to use a scanner and pull the code out that is causing the check engine light to come on. whatever code/codes you find are probably related to vsc light.

Toyota corolla 2008 engine light


i think your right about the dealer, the code reader will tell the mechanic what is sending the fault, for him to change the air flow meter then the wiring is bizzare as these are 2 major seperate items and the codes would tell him that. My suggestion, take it to a local mechanic who has a code reader to tell you what the fault is, most mechanics won't charge to have a look. Toyotas are usually a pretty reliable car. Hope this helps, Good luck

Check Engine prob on my Toyota Hybrid Camry


The check engine light is to alert you that the computer has identified a fault in one of the car's systems The dealer will most likely run a scan and see if any fault codes are stored. The codes will show what the computer has noted and if the light came on erroneously, they will reset the light. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Took 2006 Matrix to local garage for oil change, two days ago, the car died, had it taken to the Toyota dealer, they said oil filter was not properly installed engine is deal replacement is 22K, they are...


it happens when you don't check out the garage you take it to. But it sounds like it is the shops responsibility. and the dealers. if your oil light never came on it could also mean a bad sensor.

Engine doen't stay idle at steady rpms rev up and down by itself


Either you have a vacuum leak, a bad throttle body position sensor, or a bad throttle body.

If the throttle body is drive by wire (electronic) then it would be a bad throttle body.

If the throttle body is drive by cable (manually driven by a cable connected to the gas peddle) then it would be a bad throttle position sensor.

If the throttle body is bad the check engine light wil lbe on. If it is on have your codes read at your local parts dealer for free, and this will give you a clue as to which pices/parts you need to replace.

Have the car leak tested and the vacuum linse inspected for leaks as well.

Toyota Highlander Catalytic Converter


You should have the Catalytic Converter replaced at a muffler shop,not a dealer.
Then if you still have a problem have the dealer replace the computer(if it was a recall, it will be free)
