Question EFI Relay,Toyota

My camry,4 cyl. failed state emission inspection. Tester said to change plugs,which i did, and unplug the EFI relay for 5 minutes.
Does this sound right and where is the EFI relay.
Thanks

That sounds like he's trying to clear the computer and reset the addaptives. I don't know if just pulling the relay will work or not. That doesn't seem like it would work. This sounds like a question for Toyotaman.

Emission readings would be a huge bonus to us as we don't know what gases you failed on.Please include all pertinent info like year,mileage and recent repair info to help us guide you.Do you have dyno testing?

Thanks to all,
camry is a 2001. I will look for the emision report and get back to you all.
Car runs fine,but the 'check engine light' is on. I'm thinking of taking car to a reputable repair shop and having them check things out. Its not worth fooling around around with something i don't have any idea about. Just disconnecting the battery cable sounded like a simple thing.
Thanks to all.

Disconnecting the battery is the worst thing to do. The code will clear and if you wanted to diagnose it afterwards it would be impossible. Have the code read by Auto-Zone. Then get back to us

Sorry for taking so long to get back. The problem was a "vacuum thingy".
i forgot the exact name. it was wise to keep the check engine light on and NOT try to clear it. Part was replaced by a qualified mechanic and passed inspection.
Thanks again to all.
