I recently had the check engine light show up on my car. Its actully been something on and off for the last 2-3 weeks (it goes away on its own sometimes, or when I fill the gas sometimes)
I took it to two diff. garages I was informed:
1) replace plugs, tune up and throttle body wash,clean MAF sensor---Approx 200
2nd garage) Replace gas intake manifold and clean MAF sensor--Approx 250
I just bought my first car recently and have no experience with mechanics and how to go about dealing with such issues. Any help or feedback as to what you would suggest should be done would be great
Car: 2006 Toyota Corolla
Code: P1071 System too lean
*PS Went to the dealership but they said they dont cover such expenses and would charge 105 just to see the car and say whats wrong..
Also my gas cap when I fill gas has a hole so not sure if the light comes up due to air going through the cap, the mechanic said its fine, that plastic cap is only there for draining any water that goes in..
Thanks for your help!
