!@$# Tacoma Truck...

Around about Weaverville, some 200 miles from here, the Check Engine light went on.

Dummy me, I took it to the dealerhip. $460.00 later, I have a new Mass Air Sensor, and a new air filter.

$90.00 for the diagnosis, $150 plus change for the sensor (a tiny piece of plastic & metal, it looked darn clean to me!), $90.00 to install the thing (probably took all of 20 minutes, but Toyota charges a full hour, period), and another $90.00 to clean out the induction system. Then some more for the new air filter, my math is off I am sure but I'm too annoyed to look at the bill right now, I know the bottom line and grrrr!!! But once it was in there and diagnosed, I was out $90.00 and a lot of my time anyway, wasn't worth it to me to shop around at that point.

I am left wondering if they didn't do something when they changed the main bearings, but that seems so unrelated.
