Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Thank you for the reply.
How many miles are on the car?
Any warning lights before this happened?
Did you by chance just refuel or any events before this happened?
If you turn the key to "on" (not start) does the check engine light come on for a few seconds?
Please answer all questions in detail so that I can propely help you, thanks
THank you for the reply.
Most likely this is a fuel contamination issue then.
I hope you kept your fuel reciept from when you refueled.
To verify this the car needs to be towed to a qualified shop such as a toyota dealer and a fuel sample taken. I recommend you do not try to start/drive the car again as this can cause some pricey damage.
ok so the car was running rough before it shut down and before a refuel?
No chek engine lights on at all?
Any abnormal noises under the hood?
Forget google, there are a ton of "possibilities" on this car but I want to get a clear idea of what exactly happened before this happened.
do you by chance have access to a scan tool that can pull codes on the car?
ok, that would really be best in this case.
When the car started doing this and the check engine light came on was this light on solid or was it flashing on/off?
