2001 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 198000 miles
I have a Corolla 01 with 200k's on it. My CE light recently turned on. I went to a local TOYOTA dealer thinking I should finally address the problem. Its been a horrible decision and I almost regret doing this.
The codes initially read 0171 and 0300 on a generic scanner tool, The dealer's mechanic told me it was a malfunctioning MAF sensor and replaced it. $550 and 100 kms later its on again and this time he told me there was an emission code PO404 suggesting that the gas cap is not tightly fitted. Another 40 bucks and 20 kms down the road its on again. I don't trust the guy or the dealership anymore. I'm wondering if its really so hard to diagnose the problem or have they replaced the wrong part altogether and are trying to cover up. They don't seem to care and I'm just furious at the total lack of customer service at a dealership!
Thanks for your time
have the same problem?
