Toyota corolla 2008 engine light

Hi,
I have a 2008 toyota corolla. One fine day the check engine light came on. I took it to the dealer and he first replaced the airflow meter. Then again the light was on. Then he consulted the factory and then replaced the engine wiring. I got the car today and after driving it for 20 miles engine light is back on. IT is now consistently on. I have waranty but dealer also seems to have no idea on the reason. can any one help...

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

i don't know the cost to fix, you can drive it with a converter lock up out of overdrive but the RPM will be higher and you will lose fuel efficiency, if you drive over 60 you chance overheating.

Could have, sure sounds like it's connected. I assume it's never had this code before. The Dealer should be willing to check it out and find out what is going on for you = no charge. If you get a run-around form the Dealer, then call the Toyota Number on you recall notice, they will help you resolve the issue.

Hi Team, Good Afternoon. I purchased a 2005 Toyota Corolla 1 month ago (Used Car). As soon as I got the car I got the check Engine light. I took the car to Toyota of Irving and they told me that it was...


Did you buy this from a dealer? if so, you should have taken it back ASAP I dont know why you didnt have the Toyota Dealer fix the car, now your in the middle of a mess, getting 2 shops involved, and the car still has a problem. When you bought the car, whoever you bought it from, knew there was a problem, cleared the code and it took a while for the check engine light to come back on. So now you will just have to pay someont to fix the car. The trans shop told you it needed a converter and solenoid, the problem is still there, so make it their problem. I think you need someone who knows toyota . theres no recall that I know of. Recalls are free, anyhow. . ecm is warranteed 8 years or 80k miles. Have the dealer check it out. Have them Check Bulletin TC008-04 and T-SB-0378-08

Hi. You must drive into an AAMCO repair shop where they will scan your car computer for free and tell you why that light is on. The two problems may or may not be related.

If you do not have an AAMCO, call local auto parts stores as some scan for free and some do not. J.

Engin light stays on in my toyota corolla


the car has been back to the dealer 4 times for the same problem. First time they claimed that they replaced malfunction tank by-pass vsv and codes mentioned are P0440, P0441 and P0446 that were malfunction. the second time they connected the car to their computer and re-scan the vehicle and told us that everything is working fine and the engine light is off, but after one day the light came back and the car went back to the dealer for the third time and now they claim that the problem is from charcoal canister and has to be changed. also after the second visit as soon as i got in my car i could small gas and it hasn't gone away and the dealer says they did nothing wrong and all the problem is from the canister. we really don't know if we can trust what they say.
