Ok
Toyota Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

Have you got the trouble codes so I may help you better. Just remember trouble codes do not tell you to replace parts but just give you a place to start to isolate the issue and narrow things down.

No trouble codes which was unusual. The check engine light was on when it was scanned at Autozone.
Toyota Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

No that may not be unusual , depending on the type of code reader they use as there are many different ones from the basic one to the advanced scanners used in shops. Also it depends on the person doing the reading how experience they are, just a code reader does not make a technician. there are three areas codes can be in the ECU -- pending, history and current , not all readers can see all these areas. Also if it is not a secor the ECU may not pick it up as a fault to register.

Toyota Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

This problem could be anything from a vacuum leak ,bad fuel or injectors not spraying properly which would not register as a fault code. But if the light did come on I would see if I could get another shop try to pull up a code first.

From what my wife told me it started a few days ago but gradually got worse and check engine light came on this morning. Rough idle around 500 rpm and feels like it's gonna stall which it did 3 times when I drove home each it was when I was stopped at the light.
Toyota Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

I understand and would strongly have it scanned for codes again it should show if acting up that frequently. I can give you some things you can try doing in the mean time if you want

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I'm concerned if I keep driving it like this will it cause further damage to the car?
Toyota Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

I don't mean to be abrupt but the old saying is you get what you pay for as they are in the business of selling parts that's why they do this free and if it was that simple I wouldn't waist my time paying for my trade license. If you catch my drift.
