Customer Question
I do not think...

I do not think my check engine light is working because when I hook a scan tool up it says bad egr sensor.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

I don't think it is working. I dont see anything that looks like a check engine light when I cut the switch on

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Toyota?

1998 toyota avalon

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Avalon yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am going to try and take the egr valve off and clean everything real good. But I am wondering why my light is not coming on at all

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No that is it

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!
