#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.

I am having the same problem and my Echo has 27,000 mile on it. Did you find out what the problem was?
#95 of 914 front bumper
Aug 28, 2005 (3:11 am)
I had yesterday an unfortunate incident with my echo 2005. It seems my front bumper is dented in two places, and a little bit bent on the right side. I don't know what are my options now. Is it possible to repair it somehow, or I have to change it ? And how much would amount each of these options (it is a keyed front bumper for a sedan) ? Anybody with a similar problem ?
#96 of 914 Condenser hit by rock
Aug 30, 2005 (5:13 am)
I took my 2005 Echo to the dealership because the air
wasnt working and they told me the condensor was hit
by a rock and thus not under warranty. They want 941
dollars for a new one. Anyone ever had this experience?
#97 of 914 How easy is it to replace light bulb in dash?
Sep 12, 2005 (10:42 pm)
All of the illumination light bulbs behind my instrument console in my 2001 Echo has died. The one on the right hand side went out first and a couple of weeks later the one on the left went out as well.
How easy is it to replace these myself? I assume I'll have to remove the center console (which houses the speedometer, etc) to do this. I just loath going in to the dealership to get this fixed since they'll probably charge me an arm-and-a-leg for the parts and esp. labor costs.
#98 of 914 Trunk leak solution?
Sep 19, 2005 (7:22 pm)
My '01 Echo has a trunk leak. Anyone find a solution yet? I thought about building up the gasket by squirting silicone under it.
An autobody shop said they're notorious for trunk leaks.

Mine don't come on right away either sometimes. I hit the right side of the "dash" cluster and they come on again. Try that and let me know, cuz I really don't want to get into my dash. I will put a glow stick in front of the speedohead before I have the dealer uncork my dash.
I have a 2001 manual sedan.
#101 of 914 unusual sound
Oct 16, 2005 (7:24 am)
Sometimes when I start my TOYOTA ECHO 2000 and am ready to drive, there is some strange sound that occurs(high pitch)....for about 3-4 seconds....almost a screeching sound....(not extremely loud, but loud enough so,I can hear even when the windows are rolled up)
It goes away after 3-4 secs and does'nt happen every time...
