Abs and traction control dash lites come on and off at various time..sometimes never come on

Your abs and traction control lights should only come on when you start to slide while breaking(ABS), and when your wheels spin in place when excelerating(TC). If those 2 things don't happen, which with some people they never do, you should never see the lights come on. Only when those mechanisms are in use do the lights come on. And they will always flicker as that is what abs and tc are, intermitant surges to break up the constant. ABS does this for obvious reasons...anti lock break, so when you slide, the abs "taps" the breaks in short bursts so they don't lock up. TC "taps" the exclelrator when it slips. Those "taps" are what trigger the lights on your dash, which is why they flicker and don't stay on.

How do i check the transmission fluid in a manual 2007 scion tc

Check in your owner's manual or with the dealer. It has to take either gear oil, or a few manuals do take transmission fluid, don't know about your model.
All manual transmissions have a drain plug near the bottom of the case, and a fill plug about half way up on the transaxle case. You check the level by taking out the fill plug and see if the oil is right up to the fill plug hole. If oil is o.k., make sure it is not the gearshift linkage binding before you suspect an internal problem inside the transmission. Good luck.

Does the 2006 scion tc have some sort of code where the check engine light flashes to indicate a specific problem?

I always say,"if the light is solid, it's not much to worry about, but if it flashes, it's time to get it checked. But some vehicles do have a flashing light when codes are being pulled. But I don't think this is your case. I think it's telling you to get it checked by flashing and keeping your attention to the problem.

Hi Andrew, TC I believe is 'traction control'. I don't know for sure why the management system would read 'engine power reduced' and would suggest a visit to your dealer, to have a diagnostic scan carried out. It could very well be that moisture has contaminated the electronics.Regards Johngee10

My 97 ford taurus transmission shifts fine but it will not go in to the over drive and the o,d light blinks off and on what do I do?

The OD light flashing is usually a sign the TC is overheating. I know it will come on when the ATX fluid hits 300F.

Coasting in neutral will cook a TC if done for very long. This is because the TC is spinning at a relatively higher engine speed but the tranny pump is not putting out enough fluid to keep it cool.

A locked TC is always better for the tranny and full power output. An unlocked TC is wasting energy churning up the fluid and causing a parasitic drag.

Once tranny fluid has reached this temp it is junk and should be changed. If you don't then it gets worse and worse and soon the tranny will fail.

Start with changing the filter and fluid and check for shifting issues after that. If it is shifting to O/D and clean, you have fixed the problem. If not, it could be a solenoid problem, a torque converter problem or worse. That is when your real work begins. Let's just hope the problem is the fluid is not flowing properly and the filter and fluid replacement fixes the problem.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.
