Check engine light being on this early could be something as simple as the 02 sensor being bad, but you should check the oil level, and then get it serviced. Don't sweat the TRAC/ECU thing, unless you bought an early production IS300... if you do a search for that + "VIN" you should find a list of VIN #'s that fall under the fix... if not, then your car was fixed before it even left the factory.

Lots of things can trigger the check engine light.

If you don't tighten the gas cap enough the OBDII sends an alarm that too much gasoline is evaporating and the check engine light somes on. They can "pull the code" from the ECU and tell you why it is on, but it may not have anything to do with the engine.

Thnx for ur help guys. Another question, what do you think would be a good peformance upgrade, for instance S-AFC or wut you think? I already have intake and exhaust...Just curious what would be a good "bang for the buck" that is relativly cheap..

When you installed the intake, did you reset the ECU by disconnecting negative wire on the battery for 5 min? That seems to cause the check engine problem sometimes.
