Routine in that check lights have been on all
vehicles for some 31 years now ?

Yes there is a real problem when an OBD2 system
check light comes on & you should have had it checked
for codes already & either given them to us,looked them
up on the internet or had a repair shop determine if you
should even be using the car until diagnosed & repaired

Oil changes are due when you decide to do them,nothing
else involved there

I wouldn't go over 4,000 miles,that would be changing your
oil 4 to 5 times a year

If you have an owners manual, the question may be somewhat answered in there

that might be a funny coincidence if your buddy knows whats up then it just might be a sensor that would be my guess, check your fuses just to be safe.

SOURCE: Nissan Sentra "Service Engine Soon" and uncontrolable shaking.

could be a number of things with the check engine light on,from what you are describing though, I am going to sugest you look for vacum leaks, broken hoses and such and also listen for a wistling sound. I also had this happen to me but on diffrent type of car, and it was the hose that went to my pcv valve.

The oil change wouldn't cause this problem. Just in-case, check the engine oil level.

There are many emission sensors in the car that will make the engine light come ON. Best way to find out what's going on is to have an auto-parts store hook up a engine code reader and tell you what the code means. Most auto-part store will do this for free.

If it's the indicator that literally says "service engine soon", and not the check-engine light, then you have no worries. That's programmed to come on at set intervals to remind you that routine service may be due soon (oil change, inspection, tire rotation, etc). It's not an indication of failure. Failures will be shown by the check-engine light. That one is nothing to worry about. Your owner's manual should have a procedure to turn it off.

Sometimes it's just a routine mileage thing other times it can actually be a fault code. You might run it by your local Autozone, Advance, etc.. parts store and they will do a FREE scan for you and reset the lights.

HI I have light service engine soon I conect a code reader P0430 catalytic converter sistem efficincy below threshold (back2)


The catalytic converter is not working as well as it should be, this code will not affect they way the truck runs, just means it is polluting more than it should be. Converters are covered under a 8 yr 80,000 mile federal emissions warranty, if you have less than 80,000 miles, contact yoru dealer and they should replace them under warranty. Otherwise, you can replace it with an aftermarket one for less money, but most likely the code will return, due to the aftermarket ones usually not being as good as the factory ones.

I have a 2005 Explorer XLT with 66,000 miles.Is it advisable to change the timing belt at this time . The car is running great.


Does your motor have a timing belt or chain? If it is a belt and it was mostly highway running you should be able to get quite a few mor miles out of it. As a rule of thumb, city driving, jackrabbit starts, lots of cold weather driving(bellow -20f) and towing belt should be changed at around 80,000 miles. If is light duty driving 100,000 miles. If it is a chain you might never need to change it.

BOTTOM LINE: TAKE IT TOYOTA BEFORE THE WARRANTY EXPIRES @ 80,000 MILES OR 8 YEARS OF OWNERSHIP.

I had mine taken care of today free of charge, and hassle free, thanks to the service crew at Condit's Toyota.
