My "check engine" light has been on for the last 70,000 miles. I have had my 4Runner in the shop numerous times, for the same problem for several years. Each time, until recently, the technician cannot find anything wrong with the engine. Upon picking up my vehicle, the "check engine" light will be off for a day or two, but then comes back on a few days later.
About a month ago my Toyota was in the garage for repair work and once again the technician looked over the vehicle and could not find anything wrong. I took my vehicle back to the same garage this week of January 31, 2005, and now they tell me there are numerous things wrong with my 4Runner. For example, the catalytic converter needs replaced, gaskets and sensors. These costs of the repair are well over $1,000. As you can understand, I am very skeptical about the diagnosis of the "check engine" problem.
If you have any information regarding this problem, please reply.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
