Replace the timing belt
Inspect the water pump for any evidence of seepage at the impeller shaft seal
Change the oil & filter
Flush the auto transmission (if it has one)
Replace the spark plugs
Replace the spark plug wires if they are older than 5 years old
Replace the air filter
Flush the cooling system, and new coolant
This pretty much covers it, some of the above items may have already been done.
Hope this helps; and Thanks for choosing FixYa.
The graciousness of a FixYa rating would be much appreciated.

1991 toyota tercel 1.5 automatic trans. drove to my nephews house and then back home "17 miles round trip" about half mile from home car wont shift first gear to second

Jorge, as richie46 recommended check trans, fluid level. At higher mileages,150,000 the automatic transmission may not shift correctly. This can be caused by the throttle position sensor out of adjustment or a shift solenoid needing to be replaced. Typically the transmission does not need to be completely overhauled.

Service warning message

Hey Derek,
When did the light first come on? Was the car Driving OKay before and after the light came on? How many miles on the car? When did you change the oil last? Has your car just reached a 100,000 mile mark or 150,000 mile mark? Your ECM has detected a fault somewhere or it just BURPED and needs to be reset. I need the answers to the questions from you. In order to help you find the problem. BUT, iF THE CAR RAN FINE BEFORE AND AFTER, IT MOST LIKELY JUST BURPED & ONLY NEEDS TO RESET OF FAULT CODES.

Maint required light just came on .....2008 toyota this a bad sign or a minimal problem

The maintenance required light lets you know its time for an oil change. Once the oil is changed the light can be reset. The light will usually blink for a few seconds as you approach the 5,000 mile mark and then stay on steady as the 5,000 mile mark is reached or surpassed.

I have a 1998 isuza Trooper with 207,000 miles what kind of oil should i use.

at 207k miles I would not change anything. Just keep on doing what you have been doing and you should be ok. Changing things up now may cause you trouble and is not recommended. And congratulations on the 200k mile mark. Not many people care for their vehicle enough to get 200k+ miles out of it, GOOD JOB
