    I have a 2001 Double Cab with 99,500 miles on it. Today all of a sudden my check engine light comes on. Everything seems fine. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Go to Autozone and have them read the code for you?? (Free) or Go to a dealer and get them to diag/repair?? (pay to play)

    Just because you don't feel anything wrong doesn't mean that the engine is fine...

    My shop has a code reader, so if you get the code from AutoZone and they can't look up the code, post it and I'll look it up. Our fleet is mostly Tacoma's, Tundra's & Sequoia's.

    Have you replaced any of the 02 sensors yet? I'm gonna guess it's probably bank1 sensor1 O2 sensor.

    Get the codes checked and go from there. Research research research

    Welcome to Tacoma World. Did you just get gas? (tank not belly) Is the gas cap on tight?
