Well, my brother has an 86 Hi-Lux and I have an 86 4Runner. His check engine light has been on for about 6 years and mine for about 4. Both trucks run fine. They are both subject to heavy offroad use. Sometimes the check engine lights go off for a few days, but they keep coming back on. We have tried numerous checks, but neither of us have any computer diagnostic problems. Neither truck uses or leaks oil, so I don't know what to tell you. I guess if I owned a chevy or a ford and the check engine light came on, I would be scared, but since I have lived with it for 4 years now, I am not worried as I have owned toyotas for 22 years and only had to call a tow truck once.
