What type of gear oil to use in toyota noah with 3s engine 2000 model

do you mean trans gear oil if so you can use 80 weight oil or automatic transmission oil in a standard trans, since its getting to colder weather and will help with easier sifting in the cold weather.

TPMS light due to colder weather on 2013 avalon Can alarm be reset?

Normally, correcting low tire pressure will re-set the system and light will go off, however, if TPMS units inside wheels get low batteries, light will stay on. Very common for these units to be replaced when you buy new tires.

My Audi A4 2009 makes a rattling noise on cold starts which resolves in less than 30 seconds. Dealer says its an air pump. This doesn't seem correct. The noise comes from the front of the care. Does not...

READ THIS (happy ending so far...):
audi a4 2L turbo quattro, manual transmission with 98,000 KM. Perfect conditions, no oil leaks whatsoever.

Left the car off for two weeks in very cold weather (-10C down to -25C). When I restarted, it started immediately but with heavy rattling noise due to camshaft adjuster not getting enough oil pressure. After 3 minutes of warming up (outside temp.: -12C) at very low rpm (below 2,000rpm), I start moving the car. Still hearing heavy rattle noise. As soon as I pass 2,000 rpm, I get a scary red warning, low oil pressure. Turn off the engine immediately. In 1 minute, I re-start the car and the engine lights check ok, so I drive in first gear super slow (1,200rpm) hearing the same rattling noise. After another minute, finally the noise all the sudden disappears and the car starts running just fine.

Called Audi dealer and they told me that in extreme weather conditions, I should warm the engine for 10-15 minutes if necessary before start moving.
Take away: luckily, I didn't screw up the engine since I was using it at extremely low rpm (easy to do with clutch and manual transmission) until the oil reached full pressure. I am pretty sure now that the problem was leaving the car off for such a long time in freezing weather. All the oil flows back to the bottom, and when I restarted it, the cold oil with high viscosity took a long time to reach all the parts of the engine, specially the camshaft adjusters that are actuated by using oil pressure. Next day, the car started at -9C perfectly without making any noise (as usual). Basically, the longer you leave your audi in cold weather, the longer you might hear the rattling noise until the oil reach full pressure inside the engine. My car took 6 minutes to fix it after couple of weeks in cold weather. This makes sense to me; in fact, in the past I only heard the rattling noise after leaving the car off for a couple of days in the winter.
So far, this has had an happy ending....

I'm working on a 1985 6.9. the problem is that it will not start with out a little small spray of ether. After that it will take right off. we replaced all the ijectors and bleed out. any idea wat might be...

My initial thought is that the fuel is bleeding down because the "O" rings are leaking or the fuel lines are venting. This causes a dry start.

You should check your glow plugs and the timer for the glow plugs. In particular the timer should stay on longer for colder weather. I understand that since 1985 Ford has come out with a heavy duty timer that will stay on longer and really heats the glow plugs.

Also check your battery voltage. The glow plugs can't get hot without proper voltage.

My engine ticks till its warm is that normal or is the rings and pistons bad or is that normal for an older high mile engine to do that?

First make sure that you have enough oil in the car by checking the oil dipstick. High mileage vehicles tend to burn more oil and needs to be checked more often. If you have the correct amount of oil, your valves may need to be looked at, adjusted and/or replaced. In colder weather oil is thicker in consistency and takes longer to circulate and lubricate the engine and components which require lubrication, hence when the vehicle warms up, the oil is circulating and performing it's function properly. I hope this helps and good luck!

Change your engine oil to a winter blend this may help If your car uses synthetic oil a thinner variety should be used in colder weather or let the engine warm up for longer before driving it.
