Question about 1997 Toyota Tercel
The car had a smog last month and passed now the light is on this morning and has not turned off what should i do i want to drive to sacramento this weekend should i go or not . if i have and oil changed will the light turn off .
An oil change will not affect the light, the engine check light indicates a fault has been detected by the computer. I recommend taking it to a competent workshop with diagnostic equipment suitable for your vehicle or a Toyota dealer. If cost of repairs is a major concern, tell them you just want a code test done and then some advice as to cost of repairs, and whether it is safe to drive to Sacramento in it. Without knowing what the fault code is that (which can only be retrieved by diagnostic equipment) I can't really say whether or not it is ok to use the vehicle in the interim, just that it's best to get someone to look at it asap.
Hope this helps,
