Toyota of Dartmouth Mass Complaint - The engine in my Toyota 2000 is always going on and I did have this problem ever since I bought the car

Review by G. on 2011-07-06
I got my new 2000 Toyota Corolla in 2000 and after a year my car engine lights started to go on.

I took the car back to the Toyota dealer and they said that it needed a new gas cap so I pay for it and they replace it.

Then the lights came on again a few weeks later it started to come on again .
I had another part put in the car and went away. It came back again. It keeps on going on every few weeks.

I have this Toyota since 2000 and this problem is causing me to have rejections sticker. Could you tell me what do I have to do to fix this problem?

Every one that I meet with a 2000 Toyota Crolla are having the same problem.

you are talking about an 11 year old car. Of course there are going to be problems. usually 100,000 miles is the limit before big repairs. I had a 10 year old Nissan limp along until it got too expensive to keep repairing. I junked it at 127,000 miles

It is the EVAP system. Gas cap is just one part. Could be a hole in a hose somewhere.

The FIRST step is go to the Zone, Autozone (or other place that does it for free), and have them read the error code. Once you have the error code, research the problem on the web.

If money is no object, take it to a qualified mechanic. Those are your options.

If everyone you meet with a 2000 Corolla has the problem, another option is to ask these people what the solution was. Sometimes the easiest answer is the most obvious.
