Hello - to properly respond to this issue will require a bit more information. Please forward the diagnostic codes (Pxxxx) retrieved by the technician. The term "fuel mix sensor" could apply to the oxygen sensor, or several components of the fuel injection system. If re-programming of the engine management control unit is required, this will need to be done by a Toyota Dealer or authorized service center with the equipment and software to perform this task.
