    Hi Aaronhill and Faxfarmer, I have had the same issue on A-T OIL TEMP COMING ON after driving fast for an hour on the highway, I pulled over for five minutes (engine off) and the light didn{t turned on again. I stop later to check fluid level and temp, and all was OK. Never happened again in the last two weeks. Can you share the sensor specs and location to check it?

Transmission over temp light comes on. transmission works fine but once went into limp mode


have a pressure test done on the box to check for internal faults. Any high pressure leaks will cause heat. check the filter and while the pan is off adjust the bands and clutch packs . Check the radiator cores are not blocked as engine temperature will affect the transmission oil temperature . check oil level as extra oil will cause frothing and over heating.

Hi, try putting in a new oil pressure switch. If the light continues to come on, you will need a new oil pump. The oil pressure switch cuts off the fuel pump when the oil pressure is low. Please let me know if you have more questions.

Have you checked for any oil leaks inside the engine compartment or at the bottom ? The light will turn off when the problem is solved. Try disconnecting the negative battery terminal with the engine off. Leaving it for 10 seconds then reeconnecting it back again.

95 Landcruiser Turbo warning light comes on under heavy load


If you are "lugging" the engine, you will get increased exhaust temperature (EGT), this will trigger your "turbo" light(not a good thing), ideally you should have an aftermarket "pyrometer" fitted to your car, this will show you the optimum revs etc you should be using in any given circumstance.Or revise your driving technique, ie change down gears earlier.
The turbo should be idled down after long trips or heavy towing, this allows the oil temps to stabilise and turbine speeds to stabilise, thus idle for 2-5 minutes.
