SOURCE: I've recently bought a Toyota

Hi Christine, the blue temp light is telling you that the motor is cold, it will go off once the engine has warmed up, nothing to worry about as it is normal, you will notice that it does not have a temperature gauge like some other cars, that is why they have the light, if the red temp light goes on switch the vehicle off immediately, this is telling you that it is overheating, they are very good cars, my father has one, enjoy :)

Engine stall when warm


It sounds as though you need to take the
car to a repair shop & start almost anywhere
& just go thru the entire engine & all it's systems

I can not imply what you do or don't do, in the way of
vehicle maintenance, but you need to have every possible
check & test done & get caught up

After the fact, i bet you don't have much wrong, other than
driving it, until it acts up vs: being proactive & looking for problems

I just bought a 2003 Toyota Echo and when I start the car up, the blue "low engine coolant" light stays on for about a minute before shutting off. I've added coolant, so I know it is full,...


Make sure there is no air in the system, take the radiator cap off and let the engine idle for half an hour, as the air comes out the coolant will go low, ad more coolant and then close the cap on also make sure the resevour bottle is at its mark.

1993 ls400 is starting however it is smoking heavily. the oil and filter was changed and the coolant topped off. the engine light is not on and the dashboard light is going off and on. any ideas???


You don't say what color the smoke is.

Blue smoke means the engine is burning oil, so it has very worn internal parts inside. (lots of miles, or very poor maintenance) Not a thing you can do about this, except rebuild the engine, or replace the engine.

Black smoke means that the engine is running too rich, getting too much gas.- Get a complete tune up.

White smoke means that the engine is burning its coolant, which means that you probably need a new head gasket (Best case) or the block, or piston sleeve, or head is cracked. If cracked block or sleeve, then you need a new engine. If head or head gasket, then you only need those parts replaced.

Chevy 2000,Venture Low Coolant lights up while driving. Twice over heated Red light, temp gauge went all the way up. I pull over and saw the coolant is not boiling hot but coolant over flowing.No steam...


YOU NEED TO ADD MORE COOLANT IN THE OVER FLOW JUG. YOUR OVER FLOW JUG IS WHERE YOU POUR COOLANT TO FILL UP RADIATOR. KEEP POURING COOLANT DOWN THE OVER FLOW JUG UNTIL COOLANT STOP DROPPING AND STAY AT THE FULL COLD MARK.KEEP EYE ON OVER FLOW JUG DONT LET RUN DRY BECAUSE AIR WILL BE PULLED IN THE COOLANT SYSTEM CAUSE A LOT OF ENGINE OVER HEATING PROBLEMS.

I recently bought a 1997 Saturn sc 4 cyl. twin cam. I just put over $400 in it. I've had problems keeping oil in the car, it's not so bad now. The car still shifts hard, loses power, constantly...


COULD BE WATER PUMP,? COULD BE THERMOSTATE,? YOU NEED TO GET THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT DIAGNOISED, AND THAT WILL PROLLY TELL YOU A GOOD IDEA, AND MAKE SURE THAT THE BELT IS ON RIGHT AND TIGHT ENOUGH, ( CHECK TENSIONER) AND AS FOR THE OIL NOT STAYING IN YOU NEED TO TAKE TO A SHOP AND HAVE THEM TELL YOU WERE ITS COMING FROM AND GET IT FIXED,

Blue low engine coolant temperture indicator light is on


I also recently bought a 2002. According to the owner's manual the blue light does not indicate a problem unless it stays on after the car warms up. If you have an automatic it will not shift into fourth gear until the coolant warms up at which time the light should go off. Have only had the car for a week and notice the blue light goes off after a mile or two of driving in temperatures in the teens to 30's. I don't know how much outside temp affects it.
