Why are you asking people to guess the reason for your issue? With different people you will get different remedies and it might be possible that actual problem may be something else, so rather than go for guesses get your ride check for error code. The error code will tell you the exact issue related with your car.

I had the same problem, check if there's any oil in the spark plugs, or maybe one of the wires is loose or the plug is bad.

SOURCE: Check engine and VSC lights on

I talked to you on the live chat, and I think that you may have missed the end of my typing...

What I went on to say is that more often than not, on the 02 4Runners, the Check and VSC lights in tandem look mainly after the emission system, and, since you stated no issues during the road test, I would guess that it is a fuel issue (too full/loose gas cap). But, if you can get the vehicle scanned, I will be very glad to provide you with more and better info if you provide me with the DTC codes. That would require your guy or an autozone hookup to a scan tool. I hope my clarification helps; and the graciouness of a FIxYa rating for this question would be greatly appreciated

SOURCE: check engine light stays on

It means that your car is due for a service. Ignore it at your peril!

Any well-equipped garage can do the servicing and then reset the service interval counter so that the light goes out.

SOURCE: My 1994 Camry idling problem.? It's

If it runs fine and the idle is the only problem you could try idling it up some with the idle set screw on the throttle body it sounds like it may be a little bit out of time those toyotas have a fine lins on the timing.

SOURCE: transmission problem with 97 camry

The 97 has an allen head(14mm?) drain plug on the pan. Drain the fluid and
exaimine it in a clear container. Good transmission fluid smells like new ATF and is usually red. If yours is dark and smells burnt AND/OR HAS DEBRIS IN IT which I think is likely, you will need a new ******.

Posted on Dec 20, 2011

Testimonial: "I did what you suggested and the fluid was a dark red color with an awful smell to it. so I changed the filter and the fluid and haven't had the problem any more. Thank you so much for responding to my question, you really saved the day."

Srs light, crazy odometer then no read outs, engine stalls won't start


Check the battery and alternator wiring connections. Also, check the alternator belt. If it is missing or has no tension, the belt tensioner may be broken. The thumping seems to imply a catastrophic mechanical failure or a small explosion affecting the electrical system, but it may have been unburned fuel igniting in the catalytic converter due to a problem with the engine computer (perhaps it wasn't working right due to the electrical problem).

No spark to the plugs


Replace the ignition module in the distributor, the thump was probably the engine misfiring through the intake manifold. Considering the absence of spark changing the ignition module is the next step to take look on ebay motors to get the best price on parts, however I would still check with the local parts stores to see if there parts are competetively priced cosidering the shipping time from ebay can be up to 5 days.

Check engine light stays on.


You've made the correct decision. Let the dealership diagnose the issue. They'll tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.).

I WOULD ALMOST BET THAT THE SHAKING OF THE CAR IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, THUS ONE PROBLEM. IT COULD BE BAD INJECTOR(S) OR JUST POOR MAINTENENCE. WITH 88K ON IT I THINK IT WOULD BE SOMETHING MINOR. HOPE THIS HELPS. LET ME KNOW. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR AN HONEST RATING AS WELL.

I HAVE A 1999 DODGE STATUS - TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS


your ultradrive transmisson has failed, and your stuck in limp home mode. you have 3rd and reverse.

that was the good news.


the bad is that you need a new transmission. the ultradrive transmissions are very problematic. do a wikipedia.org search on chyrsler ultradrives and than write a really angry letter.

your not the only one that transmission has left of the side of the road
