Have your brakes checked you may have worn the brakes out and the noise is the brakes rubbing on metal !! not good and may well be expensive.

SOURCE: resetting maintainance light on a 2008 Scion xD

To reset your maintenance reminder system (even if the light hasn't come on yet), you'll need to turn your key to on (but don't start!) and make sure your odometer is on TRIP A. Then key off. Press and hold the Odometer/Trip button. While holding down on the button, key the ignition to on (Don't start the engine!) The display panel will count down from "------" to "-"Continue pressing the button until the Trip A is displayed. After this step, you are done.

Here can find one video about this procedure: Youtube vj7kK5i2tPc

I hope helps with this (remembe rated this help) Good luck.

SOURCE: were is the oil filter

2008 Scion xD oil filter is a cartridge (element only) type. It is located under a heavy, black plastic cap right next to the oil drain plug. To remove the cap, you will need a Toyota "Special Service Tool" or an Assenmacher Specialty Tools "TOY640" or similar cap wrench. Toyota is the only source for the oil filter element; make sure you get a new o-ring (should be in the box with the filter element) and a new drain plug gasket.

SOURCE: were do i find my oil filter on my 2008 scion xd

Scion XD's are of a choice few that uses a Drop in filter as opposed to screw on types.

The filter housing is on the passenger side of the oil pan. The filter housing unscrews counter clockwise. Just put an oil pan underneath to catch the little bit of oil that leaks out. Pull the filter element out of the cartridge housing. Put the new filter element into the housing, remove the old O-ring on the filter housing, replace the O-ring on the filter element housing that is provided with the "new" filter element. It's always a good idea to lightly coat that new O-ring with motor oil before putting it on the housing, providing a better seal. Then with the new O-ring and filter element installed in the filter housing, just screw it on clockwise. It's really not much different than the old style screw-on type filters. The only place, so far, that sells the Xd element that I am aware of is Toyota. They are about $6 a piece. On a difficulty scale of 1 -10, I would declare this a (1.5). (1) being a regular screw-on type filter, and (1.5) for the cartridge type filter on the Xd.

SOURCE: Oil Change light will not rest on a scion XD 2008

This should work.

Turn the ignition key to the OFF’ position with the odometer reading shown. Turn the ignition key to the ‘ON’ position while holding down the trip meter reset knob. Hold down knob for at least 5 seconds. The light goes off, and the display shows zero for 1 second and changes to the odometer reading. If the system fails to restart, the light will remain on or keep flashing.

Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

How to find and clear a/c drain in 2008 Scion XD?

Install a cabin filter. You have to remove the glove box to access the filter's home, but once you do this, the filter will catch all the crud that cloggs the system. It is very easy to install the cabin filter in a Scion XD. Just go to Pep Boys or your local parts store and get the filter. They cost about $15.00 and check out the video on "Scion Xd cabin filter".

I have a 2008 Honda LXP purchased Novemebr 2008. It has 21000 miles on the clock. From and since 15,000 miles I heard a grinding sound when I applied the brakes after the car was stationary for over 10...

from my experience its sounds like ur front rotors may need resurfaceing...if ur doing that...may as well replace the brakes on the front as well...sometimes glazed front brake pads may make a sound but never heard of it as a grind, usually its a squeal...have ur dealer check ur rotors for hot spots in which u would need them replaced if they are overheated..also check the front pads for cracked brake pad material

2008 Scion XD

I don't know for sure, but I'd imagine oil, oil filter, and air filter changes, tire rotation, brake and strut inspection, and maybe a cabin air filter change. Look in your owner's manual near the back - each service should be spelled out in there so you don't go in unprepared.
