I know this post is old, but right on the engine theres a sticker that says use multi-ground plugs only. I read a similar problem like yours and it seemed to turn out that the spark was arcing to ground over the ceramic on the plug. So maybe it could have something to do with the single ground plugs.

SOURCE: how to check transmission oil for toyota prado

Automatic transmission is a very complicated device and its repair is costly. Most automatic transmissions must be checked with the engine running and warmed up. Also, make sure the car is on a level surface and fully warmed up.

If you not sure how to check the automatic transmission fluid, here is a step-by-step explanation:

Begin by letting the engine idle with the parking brake engaged and your foot on the brake.

Move the gear selector through each gear. This ensures that the fluid is circulating through the pumps, thereby providing you with an accurate reading.

Once you have done this, put the vehicle in park, but leave the brake engaged and the engine running.

The transmission dipstick is located near the rear of the engine. Pull the transmission dipstick out, wipe it clean with a rag, and note the markings on the end of the stick. The usual markings are “FULL” and “ADD 1 PINT”. Inset the dipstick fully and remove it again to take a reading.

If the engine is cool, it should be at the upper end of the “COLD” mark.

Hi Steve, I suggest having a diagnostic scan carried out on your vehicle. The problem may be related to a defective operation of the Variable Valve Timing or a defective crank or cam pick up sensor. The scan should pin point the problem area without guess work. Regards John

Et1505an code reader comes up with link error every time i try to scan my 04 f-150 is it the scanner or my truck if it is my truck what is the cause. How would I fix it ?

The only way to find out if it is the code reader or the truck is to plug in another code reader or scan tool and see if it gives you the same results (try this first).

NOTE: Generic OBD code readers will operate ONLY on the Class 2 data link. A true scan tool will operate on BOTH the Class 2 and the UART lines. Accessing the onboard computer system with a scan tool may give you a fault code that indicates that the Class 2 circuits may be malfunctioning.

To diagnose onboard computer network communications malfunctions, the proper equipment that can communicate with the ENTIRE network must be used. Please note that generic OBD code readers cannot perform this function.

Is there a reset button to reset ur check engine when it come on so that I can reset it myself

No. Your vehicle is not equipped with any "reset" button to reset the check engine light.

If you want the check engine light to turn off, the proper method is to scan your onboard computer network to check for stored fault codes. Then you perform the diagnostic tests that are indicated by the fault codes. In doing this, you then pinpoint the actual cause of the failure. Once the cause of the failure is determined, the appropriate corrective action must be performed to fix the fault (replace part, repair electrical circuit, reprogram computer, etc.). Only then, should any "reset" be performed. This requires the use of a scan tool that can interface with the onboard computer network and perform all of the functions required to complete the system tests and determine the cause of the fault and also to verify that the fault has been corrected.

Failure to do it this way will only result in repeated system failures (with the light coming right back on), poor fuel economy, and possible severe engine/emission system damage, which will cost a LOT more money to fix. (Which is WHY the manufacturer did not provide you with any "reset" button.)

Your issue is NOT the converter, or you would have a P0420/P0430 code

Our 2yo santa fe crdi fuel economy has progressively worsened from a very good 8litres/100km to 9.5 or 10, without change in driving habit or obvious change in engine function. We have had a flat battery...

Check your airfilter its in the big black box on the driver side under the hood if its dirty it will make your engine consume more diesel just replace it by a new one the color should be orange or white.
