Engine warning light illuminating

I have a Toyota RunX 1.8RX. I recently did a regular service -oil , air filter & oil filter change. Over the last few days the engine warning light on the dashboard lights up after 10-15minutes of driving. The car shows no ill signs like stalling or misfire and it rides perfectly well. What could bethe reason for the engine warning light illuminating?

There is no way of knowing what all has been damaged by the low oil pressure without taking the motor apart. you might get away with replacing the heads and flywheel but something else will pop up later and cost you more trouble. You will also have to replace the oil pump since the pressure dropped, umnless you just ran out of oil and the pump wan't hurt. My advice on this is to talk to an engine rebuilder and get an estimate on rebuilding your current engine, that way he can save any parts that were not damaged and will only have to replace the bad parts. Check to see what the difference in price is whether you replace the motor with a new one vs a low milage used one against the cost of rebuilding yours. Some cases it eisier to replace the motor instead of rebuilding. I suspect that you have much more damage than you think. Loosing oil pressure is a death sentence for engines!

Headlight warning buzzer not working on 2006 toyota celica

  • 1 Turn the ignition key to the "II" position.

  • 2 Check the lights on the dash. You should see a variety of dash lights light up. One of those lights will be a "Check engine" light. This light should stay lit with the ignition key in the "II" position. The rest of the lights should go out. If the "Check engine" light begins to blink, you may have a problem with one of the vehicle's electronic components. Consult your owner's manual or call your dealership for possible servicing issues.
  • 3 Start the engine. The "check engine" light should go out after a few seconds. If it does not, this can indicate either a maintenance interval has been reached or a more serious problem with the vehicle's emissions control system. Again, it is advised to consult your owner's manual or call the dealership for service.
  • 4 Check for an illuminated "SRS" light on the dash. The SRS light indicates a problem with the supplemental restraint system, i.e., the airbag, on the Camry. This needs to be serviced by a professional mechanic.
  • 5 Check for an oil light on the dash. The oil light is in the shape of a small oil canister. When this lights up, it indicates low oil pressure. Low oil pressure is caused by a blockage in the system, a weak oil pickup or oil pump, or low oil levels in the engine. Check and see if your Camry is overdue for an oil change. It is recommended that the oil be changed at 5,000 miles or every six months.
  • 6 Check for the low fuel warning. The fuel light on the Camry is on the fuel gauge near the "E" on the gauge face. The low fuel light means that you have to refuel your vehicle.
  • 7 Check for the seat belt warning light. The seat belt warning light is a picture of a figure wearing a seat belt. If your seat belt is unbuckled, then this light will illuminate (along with a warning chime) indicating that you should buckle up.
  • 8 Check for an orange car with lights on (on the dash lights). This warning light indicates that one or both of your brake lights has failed, or the electrical resistance in the bulb filament indicates that it is about to fail and will need service soon.

    2006 Toyota Corolla le - maintenance light on front panel - engine serviced with oil and air filter changed two months ago. All liquids fine, car working well...what might it be??

    • That light is an indicator that the required miles have been drove and it's time to do an oil change. The light should be reset after every oil change as the computer keeps track of the miles to warn you when it's time again should you forget.

    • If you want to turn the light off then follow these steps.

    • Push and hold the trip button and then turn the ignition to on while holding the trip reset button. Keep holding for 10 seconds and the maintenance required light will go offf.

    Hi, I was driving my 2003 toyota runx 1.6 RT when the red oil light came on the dashboard. While I was driving the engine switched off. What could be the problem?

    check oil levels every fill up of gas.
    if you see drop of level then, then check more often.
    same answer for 100 years,and will never change. (otto cyle engines, ICE)
    if not, say good bye to $3000 for a new engine.

    Change oil light is still illuminated

    First I would say that the " change oil " might need to be re-re-set. Pump the gas pedal 3X up and down fully to the floor within 5 sec. The Service Engine pertains to the Emission and Engine. The vehicles onboard comouter must be scanned to retrieved stored FAILURE CODES. Reading the codes will direct you to the area of trouble.. Cooling fans MIGHT be a problem, but with the Park Ave's automatic climate control, fan cycling with the A/C compressor running and outside temp variations would be considered NORMAL. TRANSMISSION shift prblems might be related to the SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT. Hope this helps.
