Default Toyota Camry Check Engine Light on.

I have a 99 Toyota Camry 4cylinder. The check engine light came on about 3
days ago, and then went off yesterday. I noticed it back on today after I
stopped and got gas. The only problems that I have noticed are that it
feels like it is running a little rough, and I'm going through double the
amount of gas that I have ever gone through before. I asked some
mechanics and they think it is the oxygen sensor, but they want to hook it
up and diagnose it for $80 and then another $160 for the sensor. I think
it just needs a tune-up. Any sugestions?

Have the codes read at a store like AutoZone, and paste them back here.
These days a "tune-up" is nothing but getting the spark plugs replaced and
maybe having the intake cleaned. Toyota calls for having the plugs replaced
at 60,000 miles. My experience leads me to believe this is a conservative
number.

Go to your local Autozone and have them read off the code. Tell us what
it is.
