Check engine light flashing. Showed 3 cylinders had misfired. Reset codes, replaced gas cap, added Techron fuel cleaner, and started going to Chevron for gas instead of cheapest I can find. This car's at almost 200K so I think I need to baby it a bit with higher quality gas and dropping a bottle of Techron in every 2-3 months. So far no more misfires...fingers crossed.

Exhaust manifold has design flaw but no recall. Air/fuel sensor Bank 1, sensor 1 fails prematurely. Replace mainfold/sensor for $1800 or sensor for $240 every 20,000'ish miles. I chose the latter. Good now for another few years (I hope)

This is the second time the air-fuel sensor has died. An OEM replacement was used last time and lasted only 1 year. There is a design-flaw in the exhaust manifold. Must be replaced to avoid repeated repairs, but that would cost $1800 :-( UPDATE: May 2017 - 5 years later: No new failures of this part. Perhaps the second replacement done in 2012 will be the last one. Did they fix the sensor design ? (I still haven't replaced the exhaust manifold which was the original Toyota recommendation)

Gas smell in garage on very hot days. Replaced gas cap and seems to have gone away. Finally got around to replacing A/F sensor (for second time - see earlier entries). Replaced it myself with help of a friend (with OEM part like before). We'll see how long it lasts on this second sensor. (First one lasted only 14 months) UPDATE: May 2017 - 5 years later: No new failures of this part. Perhaps the second replacement done in 2012 will be the last one. Did they fix the sensor design ? (I still haven't replaced the exhaust manifold which was the original Toyota recommendation)
