Okay--I am thinking about several things here. Electrical fire; engine failure; coolant system leak. Visual inspection--look at the wires on the engine, do they appear melted or are any of the wire casings soft? Check the fluids for the engine (e.g.-oil coolant) if you have water in your oil or coolant is black you could have blown a head gasket. There are some hoses on the firewall side that go into the block or intake manifold, check them for tears, cracks, etc. After you have diagnosed the problem a little more--re-post.
Assuming your vehicle is equipped with an Automatic Transmission, it will have a model MP6 or MP7 Transmission both of which have dipstick tubes. Fluid is checked when the following conditions have been met: 1. Engine is warmed up after having been run 15 minutes. 2. While engine is running, Fear Selector has been moved through all ranges and lastly into park. 3. KOER, remove trans dipstick, wipe clean and fully reinsert. 4. Remove dipstick again, and inspect fluid level on stick. It should be between the FULL HOT Mark and the ADD 1 PT or .5L Marks. 5. If needed, use only Dextron-III Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF)
Since your question is listed as a 1999 Saturn SL and a Toyota 4Runner, I will answer both:
1999 Saturn SL Typically the orange exclamation point dash warning light is indicating a problem with your brakes, parking or hand brake. Check to ensure that your emergency brake is completely disengaged.
Check to ensure proper brake fluid level.
Otherwise this could be indicating a problem with the ABS system.
04 Toyota 4Runner
Low tire air pressure. Inflate to approximately 32 PSI should correct your problem.
check tps sensor (throttle position sensor in backside of the throttle cable) and map sensor (manifold absolute pressure on front little 1 inch sensor with vacuum line) make sure there plugged in. the ecm (engine control module driver side inner fender) and tcm (transmission control module under dash) both need the data to know when to upshift and increase fuel/air. Otherwise the computer runs default values and guesses off of other sensors giving poor performance. also disconnect battery for 15 min. usually resets aveo service lights if you dont have a scanner.
First check battery to see if it has a charge. Do this by placing one hand on each post of the battery...lol. NO, dont do that. Turn your head lights on. If they work, probably not battery. If lights work, try cranking it over with them on. If lights dim a lot, then its a eletrical problem somewere else. It could be many things after that. A bad starter motor, coil, fuse...etc. Need to do a little trouble shooting on it to find out more. Good luck. John.
