Yaris - power loss - Chad.R
SWMBO's Yaris started playing up yesterday; It seemed to loose power/revs momentarily at anywhere between 2-3k rpm. Didn't happen all the time and not at a specific engine speed.

It is coming up for a service and will be booked in soon but I'd like to have an inkling of any potential problems before I hand it (and my wallet) over to the garage.

Been running the car every other day or so without any problems for the last couple of weeks. However today the engine management light came on and stayed on - the car performs as usual and I haven't had any of the power loss symptoms....

The Em light stays on, though I've stopped and re-started several times - it stays lit when ignition is on.

My question is, will I need to take it to a Toyota dealer or will an independant be able to read the codes/diagnose etc. ?


P.S. ....and no, I haven't managed to get it serviced since my first post.

Any decent garage should be able to read the EOBD codes; for proprietry codes you will need a dealer.

Thanks, though I suppose I should have worded my question a bit better.....

Given the situation with the EM light etc. and the previous power loss episodes - would I be better off taking it straight to a dealer?
