Question about 1989 Toyota Pickup SR5

1 Answer

Unidentified accessories light

I have a toyota lightace gxl 1989 automatic transmission. There is a light on the left of the accessories panel that looks like a grill, it comes on when the car is cold and then dissappears when it heats. But as you turn right it flashes on... any clues...?
P.s. We don't have the handbook

Check the coolant level. It sounds like you need water in the radiator.
The water level will be below the mark when cold(light on), but when it heats up, the water expands, bringing the level up when hot (light off).

When turning a corner, the water will be sloshing around switching light on and off.

If water level ok, check the switch in the expansion tank (header tank)

1989 Toyota Camry automatic transmission starting off on high gear.Stalls on drive like pulling heavy loads.


It is quite likely to be a failed shift solenoid, causing inability to find low gears. There should be a trouble code stored, causing the O/D lamp to blink.

Transmission oil needs topping up on a toyota liteace gxl auto, were do i fill?


Right in the dipstick tube. Check your manual as to whether the engine is to be running or not during checking, usually yes, warm and in park or neutral.

Reverse light dont work lights are good


The switch detecting the reverse position of the gear stick may be faulty. If you have automatic transmission the switch is under the transmission lever console as part of the neutral safety switch assembly.

Toyota Corrolla 1989


The mechanic should check on the Idle and adjust the Idle .the car is vibrating because of the Idle is low and the engine can't do to move very easy .there is low fuel coming from the fuel pump going to the engine.The transmission of the car don't have a problem because of you just change the oil . But the Idle has to be adjusted until the car will not vibrate.
