HI most Auto Zone stores will scan for codes and give you a print out of possible causes for free. Please research the DTC codes that they give you before buying what ever part they say it may need. A lot of times its nt the sensor that are bad but simpler less costly things. Good luck

Good morning. I have a Toyota Yaris 2.001. The car is accelerating by itself. The engine service light came on. The scanner shows code P1349 it refers to Valve Timing Assembly. I´m planning on...

Don't go replacing anything until you have had a Toyota tech check the car and determine the cause or causes of the fault code. It may well also be throwing other fault codes that need attention that will show up on Toyota diagnostic equipment that you have absolutely no idea about.

If the car is accelerating dangerously due to a fault, most likely in an electrical component(s), you do not want to be trying "do it yourself" fixes when you do not really understand what is happening, the exact cause and the correct fix or fixes for the problem.

Check engine light comes on

The infamous 'Check Engine' light turns on for any of several reasons. Some are incredibly simple to fix and should be checked before you spend anything going to a dealer or mechanic. Most newer vehicles have a gas tank pressure sensing monitor which will give an inaccurate error and turn on the light if your gas cap is not replaced properly. Unscrew the gas cap completely and replace, making sure to tighten it securely. Start the car and check the light again.
Other things to check yourself are the fluid levels making sure that filler caps are properly secured.
If after trying all the DIY fixes the light remains on you'll need to take it a mechanic. With any luck, one of the DIY fixes will work and save you $$$

Failed emission test because check engine light wont come on

You have to pull the front of the dashboard off, and take out the instrument cluster to get at it. If there ia an autozone near you, have them put a code scanner on the car, that will tell what is wrong.They don't charge anything to do it, and takes about 30 seconds.
