#85 of 914 Overheating, Cooling fan fuse opens.
Jun 25, 2005 (11:32 am)
In traffic conditions my 2000 Echo temperature light comes on and the car overheats.
I found that the 30 amp. fuse protecting the cooling fan opened on an overload. I replaced the fuse and after a few days the fuse opened agian. I took it to the dealer, They checked the car and found no problem. I have a Toyota repair manual, however it does not show an electrical diagram for the cooling fan circuit. Does anyone out there have a diagram or did anyone experience a similar problem ?

Did the check engine light ever come on? I've got the same problem now and the dealer has identifed at least two expensive components the Air Flow Sensor and the O2 Sensor each is about $250 including labor to replace. What did they do to fix it?

I had the same problem with my Echo. After reading about others with same problem, I decided to look at the mass airflow sensor myself. I pulled the cover off of the air filter housing and saw what I thought was this sensor. I took a Q-tip and some alcohol and cleaned up inside the opening very carefully as I didn't really know what was up there. As I did this, I noticed that the Q-tip was black (dirt). I used 3 or 4 in the process until it came out clean. I put it back together and it solved the hesitation that occured when the car was cold. Total investment; 4 Q-tips and a little rubbing alcohol. Electrical contact cleaner may also work (I didn't have any at the time. Try it; what do you have to lose? Normh.
#88 of 914 Strange problem with my ECHO
Jul 12, 2005 (11:12 am)
I bought my 2002 ECHO new in 12/01. Last summer as I was cleaning it up inside, I noticed that the header was splattered with .... something. Something that looked like Coke ore a thin, watered down ketchup. My husband and I are the only people who drive my car and neither of has had an incident involving exploding pop or ketchup. I kept wondering if something happened to it at the Toyota dealer when I had it in for routine service, oil changes, etc. but kept forgetting to mention it when I brought it in.
These stains were on the drivers side extending from the front of the header to the back. Yesterday I noticed that some of these marks are now on the passenger side as well.
My dad speculated that perhaps water is leaking in somehow and rusting? It's very stange. Has anyone had a similar problem with their ECHO?

I bought my 2001 echo in dec of 2000 and it has 42000 miles on it right now. I just took it the dealer to get the oil changed and they told me that I have an exhaust leak. Has anyone had this problem and do you have any idea how much will it cost to fix it?
#90 of 914 Re: 2k echo freq brake, rotor replacements! also wet trunk [jgcannon]

I bought my 2000 echo used last year with 14k on it. I have no idea what kind of driver owned it before me, it was leased. By around 20,000 miles I had to replace the breakes and the rotors. My friend is a mechanic and I took it to his shop. he siad that the pads were very small and he recomended sone higher grade brake pads.

Hi, I have an '01 echo. When you go to push the gas pedal the throttle doesn't respond and the car doesn't move for about 1-2 seconds and then the car suddenly surges forward. It does this either when it's hot or cold. It has a brand new air filter, spark plugs, and I ran lucas fuel injector cleaner through it. What could be causing this??? Thanks
#92 of 914 Check Engine light "Mysteriously intermittant"
Aug 09, 2005 (10:34 am)
I have a 2000 echo and my check engine light came on around 15K miles and the toyota service department said it was my transmission fluid being plugged up. Fluid needs to be changed every 15K miles. I have 65K miles on it and I have done the fluid like they said, well now for the passed 10k miles the check engine light comes on for a day then mysteriously goes off. Then a week goes by and the engine light comes on then goes off after a day or so. Does anybody have a clue what could be going on????? before I take it into the dealer. I have never had any problems with the car set for the engine light. no hesitation or anything. Thanks

I too have the strange coke splatter on the head liner of my 2000 Echo. I had been blaming my teenage son for opening a shook-up coke can inside the car. I guess I need to apologize for falsely accusing him. Did you ever find out what caused it. It seems on my car, it wasn't there one day, and appeared the next.
