Re: Check Engine Light - Knows very little about cars

There is no way putting another 55c in the tank set off the CEL. However you should check that the gas cap is on securely.

This is what I was going to say. My mother had a 04 Ranger, and the CEL triggered, and I believe the fault was just a general emissions system code. The gas cap had a bad gasket. New cap and problem went away.

I'm weary of any mechanic that cannot (or will not) tell you what the codes are that come out of the PCM.

Actually on a Toyota, it can, but it has nothing to do with the OPs O2 sensor. When you overfill some Toyotas. For example my 2000 Corolla, the charcoal canister can flood and the solenoid that tests the gas cap gets gummed up. Next drive cycle will result in a CEL.
