I had the same code come up on my 02 2.7 liter tacoma, i replaced the air-fuel sensor located in the exhaust pipe in front of the catalatic converter,its a little costly ,but, it solved my problem.One other thing before i began working on my truck i disconnected the ground cable from the battery, then reconnected it when i was done it cleared the code and the check engine light went off,also it would be wise to do this repair work on a cold engine. good luck.

I too have a check engine lightproblem with my 2000 tacoma. I found that it turns on and off each time I purchase gas. A mechanic in Ann Arbor , MI replaced a fuse in the fuse box under the hood. I don't remember which fuse it was bit i think it was the second or third from the bottom or side of box toward front of vehicle. He said the Tacoma has a prob;em with this fuse becoming fowled when one gases up. When fuse replaced the light goes off.

i also had some similar issues with my chevy and after looking at my chevy engine codeswas able to pinpoint the problem. although i still think i might visit the dealership once to show the problem.
#27 of 40 2000 Tacoma Starting Problem
Jun 09, 2010 (5:59 am)
My truck was starting hard each time, worse on a cold start, diagnostics said it was the crank shaft sensor, had that replaced, it started better but not right for about 3 weeks, now it won't start at all. Had to use starter fluid this morning. the crank shaft sensor is still coming up on the diagnostics. we are thinking it could be something electricial to cause the crank shaft sensor to not work properly...I have had a tune up within the past 16 months so all that should be good. Any suggestions

#29 of 40 2003 tacoma check engine light
Jul 10, 2010 (10:52 am)
Check engine light came on about 8 months ago.
Code says improper flow through sonverter.
I had converters and sensors replaced, problem went away, and returned few months later.
Plugs, plug wires, converters, up and down stream sensors are all new. Light is back on.
When I had it reset, it came back on after about 100 miles.
I replaced battery and light came back on after about 1,000 miles.
Light is still on, truck runs perfect with no change in mileage or performance.
The code is always the same, converter flow.
I have inspection this month, any thoughts?

Thanks for the reply. I had about 120,000 miles when light went on. Truck runs great, just high miles and #$%^ engine light.

I was wondering if you had replaced any of your tires shortly before the light went on. basically I had the same thing happen, mine at 162,000 miles. About a month before I had replaced 2 tires. Other than the light, the trucks run great.

Just did it on my Tacoma. You must ensure that the odometer is displaying on your instrument panel. It must say ODO. Turn you key off, then depress the odometer reset button and hold. While holding, turn key to on position (with instrument lights displayed) but do no start. You should see the Odometer count off some dashes and then end with several zero's in the display. Once you see that, release the reset button and then turn the key off. Go ahead and start the vehicle, and the Maintenance Light should be off
