Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Justanswer. Thank you for your question and I will assist you with your concern.The check engine light comes on when the PCM (computer ) sees a systems fault and when this happens the computer will set and store a fault code and or codes. In order to determine what is failing you are going to need to start with having the system scanned and the fault code and or codes retrieved. Most auto parts store such as Auto Zone will do this scan for you at no charge. The light flashing usually means the computer is seeing a direct engine misfire. If you can get the computer scanned and post back with the results. I will advise you from there as to the correct repair.
Okay, post back when you ready and we can work from there.
Sure thing. Let me know.
Misfiring in most cases is usually a failing spark plug or in some cases the coil. Let get the spark plugs changed as well as the boots and see if the problem clears.
