Not giving any type of legal advice ;) but you need to read what is covered under your warranty. I don't believe that anything is covered that constitutes as tune-up or under normal maint. unless they gave you one of the oil change or tires for life deals. Sorry but check into it. You may not need all those parts but if you buy a scanner you can check most of it yourself plus changing the plugs and wires isn't that hard even if you have a V10. Also everyone knows that if you take a vehicle to a dealer for a tune-up you're going to pay what the dealer hourly rate is ..... just a suggestion if you want to have someone do the tune-up for you take it to a small garage their hourly rate will most likely be half of what a dealer is. Plus they don't have the mark-up cost on parts as much as what a dealer does.

There is no standard interval for the CE/MIL light. You need to get the codes scanned at a local AP store to see what codes you have.

I have a 2003 Dodge Ram Hemi. An amber light in the upper left dash and a flashing red light in the lower right is displays periodically. When this happens the engine runs very rough and wants to cut out...


use the warranty, if you get someone to poke around it could void the warranty.
Red fluid is normally transmission fluid, sometimes power steering. Is the fluid oily or watery, some brands of antifreeze are red.
A flashing check engine light means that you are doing harm to the catalytic converters.
I would have this checked immediatley, a customer of mine waited too long and although the dealer warrantied the error, they would not cover the cost of replacing the converters because it was not their fault he kept driving it, it was a $ 2500 lesson

2007 Sienna airbag warning lamp flashing


Certainly check with your Toyota Dealer as the vehicle is hopefully is still under factory warranty at that milage. The Air bag light flashing is certainly cause for concern, and having an airbag set off without impact can be very dangerous and it is best to have a professional working on your airbag issues.

2004 ram 1500 with 5.7 hemi using 1 quart every 3,000 miles


Slide a large piece of cardboard under the truck after driving for ten minutes note in which area directly above the spot on the cardboard the oil is coming from then get under the vehicle with a drop light to look for the origin of the leak, if no leak is detected then it may be the engine is burning oil this could either be valve stem seals or broke or worn oil rings.

Engine runing rough


This code is most likely not related to the problem, it sounds like you may have picked up some contaminated gasoline, maybe has water in it or other like dirt.

Electronic Throttle Control light


I took my 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi to a mechanic that works from a garage at his home, recommended by a friend of mine. He removed and cleaned the throttle body and sensor(s?), then reinstalled them, and then disconnected both battery cables and held them together for 2 minutes so that the engine controller could reboot with the factory default settings, then reconnected them. I had bought a can of throttle body cleaner on my way over to his house for about $3.00. He charged me $40.00 for the job. This was done mid-February, about 10 weeks and 2500 miles ago. So far, the problem Has Not happened again, the truck has been running great!
