    First check gas cap come on then check engine days after.For some reason i dont think its just the gas cap.



1 Answer

The "engine light" can be caused by something as simple as a loose gas cap. If you're near an Autozone they can use a scan tool to check for trouble codes and they'll do this for free.

How to reset the oilchange reset buttom on an avalon limitted 2008

On a 2010 this is how you reset the maintenance due light. Turn the ignition switch to the on position to make sure it is showing odometer not trip (A) or (B) then turn ignition switch off. Hold the odometer button in while turning the ignition switch back to the on position (do not start the engine) and continue to hold until the odometer shows all zero's..oooooo then the maintenance due light should go off when the engine is started.

It will not shift out of first gear. Service engine soon light is on. Reverse works fine and so does first gear, just will not shift after moving.


The Service Engine light need to be check for codes, Because i think you have a shifting problem that might be coming from the shift solenoid. And I would check the transmission fluid level first to see because this can also cause shifting problems due to low fluid and lack of pressure. And for the Service engine light, I think you can go to any autoparts store near you and ask them to scan it for you, Its free. Good luck

F150 won't start

Sounds like the dreaded 'hydrolic lock' that is a common problem with the v6, caused by a leaking head or intake man. gasket. Check coolant level - if down, it's sucking fluid.
