The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

I have a 1998 toyota altezza, when i was driving home before the orange check engine light came on what does this mean?? cambelt has been replaced about 3000kms ago.


The check engine light indicates that the "on board computer" has detected a fault in the operation of the components that control engine and/or transmission performance. The computer in your vehicle is the OBD II and will "set" the check engine light for a variety of reasons. It could be anything from a loose gas cap to a defective catylitic converter to a bad fan relay. Even though the vehicle may still start and run, as long as the check engine light is on it is likely that the computer is running open loop. That is, without computer control. In this mode it may be hard to start, will get 30-40% lower fuel efficiently, and could allow the engine to damage itself to the point of total failure. The good news is that the computer stores "codes" that are extremely accurate in their ability to identify the failure that occured. Take your ride to any Auto Zone and they will scan it and tell you what the code is, what it means, and suggest repair scenarios. Good luckand I hope this helps! Dano

Orange light indicator in shape of a car - what does that mean?


That light should also have a couple of lights symbols on it. If it comes on when you turn on the mains lights then you have a main light bulb gone. If it comes on when you break then you have a break light bulb gone.

What does my dashboard light mean, orange shaped like an engine


that would be your check engine light you will need to go to the dealer or a garage that has a scanner to read the code stored in the car computer . your car is now running in safe mode, which is not optimum performance.
