Could be a blocked air vacuum line you should see a thin air line coming from the intake and go to the cam cover top check this line as they do block up after awhile and it will cause this problem. also if this is blocked you need to clean out the intake top as this is were it clogging up as well.

Ck your exhaust pipe at rear of car noting any obnoxious smell like rottrn eggs. Hold a piece of paper, I use a dollar bill ,in in front of the exhaust. If it blows the paper gently, you have a catalyctic converter going or is bad. Will need replace if so.

SOURCE: engine

You need to have your Toyota scanned to see what code is causing the light. There are hundreds of codes that trip the light, some so simple as a bad or loose gas cap. Most auto parts stores will scan your car for free, such as Auto Zone. That way you can pinpoint the source of what is tripping the light and go forward from there. It is most likely not related to the work you have done, unless you have a connector that you have knocked loose or similar?

Opel corsa problems

now! no doubt you fuel up at Tesco's, whether your car is petrol or diesel your injectors will be clogging, get some injector cleaner, put that in your tank run your car for a good few miles, I mean a lot, I had same problem in my Jaguar just recently, a couple of bottles of jet cleaner in with fuel when I went to fuel up, 1 week later smooth as a baby's.

I hope this solves your problem, it the cheapest way to start diagnosing.

Chevy Impala delayed starting after removing radio

no this is not a radio problem. disconnect your aftermarket acessories and plug your radio as it was from factory and see if u still have this problem. there is probably a problem with communication because of your fm modulator or your ipod. radio does not cause a security problem on this year vehicle
