Should there be a charge to diagnose parts that are under warrentee?

    My 2002 Tacoma failed emission testing (check engine light was on). Read my warrentee manual and all sensors associated with emissions are covered for 8 years or 80K. So I bring it to my Toyota dealer and it will cost $48 for them to REDO the plug in OBDII test. Even though I own my own tester and it tells me that an O2 sensor is bad. Thats like going in for an oil change and being charged $ because they had to use a 9/16th wrench and a filter remover!

    I just don't undersand why you need to pay for them to have the tools to do the job!!

    Delete the code before you get the test done.

    I tried that. the light was out and it still failed. They Told me that the part of the test that does the Diagnostics was turned off (by me???) I had to drive 30-50 miles before it turned itself back on. That when I took it to the dealer (because it was under warrentee)

    can't you just tell them that you want your 02 sensor replace or whatever. and its 8year or 80,000 miles which ever comes first. unless you meant to type 2002.

    $48 to diagnose the problem :eek::eek: That's complete BS.

    Is there another dealer around?
