Why is the engine light and VSC light on in my 2003 Highlander with 136,000 miles.

There is some of a sensor attached to the oil filter assembly, sometimes after regular oil change mechanic forgets to check this connection. So no harm to the engine, but the light stays on. Just ask them to re-connect.
Happened to my Highlander like 5 times :)

I use an 01 highlander for over 1000kms, i want to be sure when my engine needs a change of engine oil.

You should change your oil at least every 3000 to 4000 miles or in your case every 4828 to 6437 kilometers. If you use fully synthetic oil you can do the change every 5000 miles or 8046 kilometers.

I have a 2002 toyota highlander with 231000 miles on it.How long will it last? still runes good!

regular oil changes and maintenance it's hard to say how long it will last. do those things and fix mechanical problems as they arise and it should outlast the body on the vehicle. i clocked over 400,000 km on my last vehicle which is close to the milage you have run up. it still ran ok and is likely still running. i only sold it as i picked up a vehicle with extremely low miles on it.

1998 toyota camry started jerking a bit and now

If your losing compression then I suggest doing a compression test and then following it up with a wet compression test to determine whether the problem is in the valves or pistons.
Wow one tune up in 122k miles jerking not really an ignition thing more like a fuel thing. If Compression test results are good then do a full tune up even replace coil packs or distributor ( which ever is applicable) and replace fuel filter.
These vehicles are not known for major engine problems (blown engines bad valves etc).
Big with transmission problems if its a 6 cylinder not the 4 cylinders.

I have a 2002 nissan altima, 4 cyl. with 156,000 miles. It has had regular maintenance since purchase. I currently need an oil change and tune-up. I called a Nissan dealer and they told me I need a major...

No. It's never a good idea to take your car to the dealer unless is a problem that falls under an electrical or physical malfunction that would be still under warranty. A standard oil change and tune up on a well maintained vehicle shouldn't run you over $100-$150 at most.

You should have had the transmission fluid changed at 30, 000 miles, and you should have the transmission flushed at 60,000.
Change the timing belt at 90, 000 miles (if you have a V-6).
Change the air filter every 15,000 miles.
Check the spark plug condition at 60,000, and change the coolant at 60,000.
