Take it to TOYOTA dealer and get a oil change,they will scan for free and find problem and tell you and how much,since you came for a oil change,you don't have to let them fix,you can now go fix.I Take my Tundra there for oil changes.
The Reset Procedure Is: With The Ignition Key In The "on" Position, but
The Engine Off, Fully Push And Release The Accelerator Pedal Slowly 3
Times Within 5 Seconds. If The "change Oil" Light Flashes, The System Is
Resetting. Turn The Key Off, Then Start The Vehicle. If The "change
Oil" Light Comes Back On, The Light Has Not Reset. Repeat The Procedure.
i just had changed the oil in my wifes 2.7 2000 260,000 mile concord. i got a very unhappy phone call about oil light on and over heating . shop wanted $750 to fix . i drove it home no light till about 15 minutes into drive. checked oil it didn't even regester .waited a few minutes oil was back. ended up being the pcv valve was pluged and line to it had rotted off . it was holding the oil in the valve cover and causing it to leak around plugs and burn oil . cost of fix $20. i used a radiator bypass hose and a new pcv valve . works great .still burns quart of oil every 1,000 miles because of milage .i hope this info will be useful to you.
Fix the dipstick funnel so you do not have oil dripping onto the exhaust causing white smoke. Some people delay fixing a bad oil pressure sender by running a thicker grade of oil. Synthetic oil tends to be thinner , from this you get benefits, in this case it probably exposed an oil sender that is in the process of going bad. If you put a new oil pressure sender in the motor(about$10) you should be able to fix the problem with the oil light.
No, it goes out when the oil level is read to be correct. If you have the right amount of oil in the car, your pressure sensor is bad or you have oil sludge blocking the pickup tube at the oil pump. Run some Seafoam in the oil for 100 miles and then change the oil and filter (or if the pressure light stays on, add half a can of Seafoam and idle it for 20 minutes before changing the oil). Repeat 2-3 times and see if it goes away. If not, change the pressure sensor (on the oil cooler - the aluminum block the filter screws onto). If this still isn't a fix, you need a desludging kit from www.ecstuning.com. If THAT doesn't fix it, drop the oil pan and change the pickup tube and filter screen, clean out the pan, and repeat the Seafoam treatment.
if the needle is on or around the letter N then thats normal. you can also change the oil sending unit. as far as the engine light once you change the EGR valve and the EPT sensor the engine light should go off
Is the "Service Engine" light, or the "Change Engine Oil" light? Do you have the service books, or owners books, that came with the car? I had the same problem with the "Change Engine Oil" light. The fix was in the book. If you don't have it, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I can tell you how to fix it.
