Question about 1991 Toyota Supra

Air filter light on, has new air filter

The air filter light is on and will not go off. I have put a new air filter in the car. Once in a while the car seems to fill with gas fumes that are really strong. The car also idles kind of rough, but runs smooth once I rev it up

    I am sorry , I brought the car used and it did not have a manual with it. The light I am talking about is on the only light on the left side next to the temp gauge. It looks like a side view of an air filter to me Thanks,

    Follow up,I found out it is the coolant light, checked and sure enough it is empty in the overflow tank. The car is still hard to start and does not idle well at times . Also it has a strong smell of gas sometimes. Could this be my purge valve ? I know these can be damaged by overfilling a car when filling up with gas. The check engine light has never come on , but if it was a purge valve I would think it should ? This is a " Sunday " car for me so I don,t drive it much ( trying to keep miles low ) Thanks for any help you can give me

    "Air filter light"?

    Please clarify. Supras do not have such a light.

The issue is not the purge valve. If you have a strong odor of gas, and no fuel leaking under the car, you have one of the evaporative emission hoses compromised. Can you get the car raised on a vehicle hoist? If so, check the lines that run along the side of the car, I will bet that you will find pin-holes in one of the evap lines. Get back to me if you need more info.

1992 GTI, Mk2, 2L(2E) 8valve. Engine cuts out sometimes when car comes to a halt and has to idle, this occurs whether the engine is hot or cold and anytime of the day or night. Another thing i noticed...


the cause wil be the air mass meter also known as the air mass sensor, when this fails the car struggles for air and hence cuts out, this is made worse when the lights are on at night as the car will be trying to compensate the failed air sensor with more power so it will **** more power from the battery to keep the engine running, when you put the lights on it wil make it harder for the altenator to provide power to everything at once, very common fault on this car.

1994 ranger 2.3 lacks power and has a miss. put new plugs and wires. plus a new mass air flow sensor. no check engine light on

I would check for a vacuum leak, also check the air filter and replace the fuel filter, if it hasn't been done.

Check engine light came on ,we checked oil, water, put new air filter on light is still on.

The check engine light can be anything from a faulty o2 sensor to a evap problem. i would recommend taking it to auto zone and havinf it scanned for free. if it is a small evap leak, you may not have gotten the gas cap tightened down the last time you fueled your car. The light wioll not go out until it is reset. Once you get it scanned you will know more.

The VSC TRAC and TRAC OFF lights come on everytime the CHECK ENGINE light comes on. I think you just need to get the light reset.
