Question about 2008 Toyota Camry
Don't start the car again, until you do some more checking, as it sounds like there might not be adequate oil pressure or some other problem that could damage the engine. Parts stores here will loan a scan tool for free to check for codes stored in the cars computer. Normally, you would drive the car in, and they will check it for free, however if you can't drive it in (or shouldn't as in your case) I know they have let customers bring the scan tool home to check (requiring a credit card that won't be charged, to make sure they get the tool back). They can tell you how to use it, just plug it into the cars diagnostic port, and follow the prompts on the tool to search for engine trouble codes. The car does NOT have to be running to do this, although you may have to turn the key to the 'on' position. You need this info to figure out what is wrong. The parts store can tell you what the codes mean, and suggest ways to fix any problems. Hope this helps, good luck!

Since the check engine light came on you should have your codes checked to find the culprit.. It is hard on a car to sit, but at least yours hasn't been out of commission for very long. Also, fuel looses some of its "pop" when it gets old. Run the old out and get fresh fuel in, an injector cleaner additive may not be a bad idea at this point, but start with finding out why the check engine light is on. Good Luck!
