Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, thank sor posting Just a couple of questions please:
What year and model Toyota is it?
How many miles on the odometer?
Are the check eng, vsc and trac off lights all on at the same time while driving?
Other than that noise are there any braking or handling problems?
Thanks, ***** ***** located in the US and if so in what state?
Whenever the check engine light turns on it will also log codes for the VSC and ABS systems since communication between the engine control and these systems so the main concern is the check engine light at this time, most autoparts stores like autozone can get the engine codes for you at no charge
I will accept a phone call or I can call you if you feel that will help, please provide phone number.
I don't think there is any risk as far as that goes, it's most likely just an emission control systrm malfunction, I'm still kind of wondering about the noise when turning left or right as you stated in your original question, that may be a seperate concern.
Check to make sure that the gas cap is on tight, loose or missing gas cap will cause the check engine light to turn on, other than that I would need some diagnostic code numbers to diagnose this further.
Sounds great I will be online most of the day.
Those autoparts stores have a tendency to give you an explanation or even make recommendations based on what code numbers they see on the scanner which may or may not be accurate, please ask them for the actual code numbers and write them down engine codes usually start with a P and then some numbers, like P0441 etc, this is what I need, thanks.
