It could be a few different things but most likely it is the Oxygen Sensor (O2 Sensor) The only way to really know is to go to your local autoparts store and use there loaner On board diagnostics tool...there is a plug in somewhere under the drivers side dash...turn the OBD reader on after is is pluged in and then it will instruct you to turn the vehicle on...after a few min, it will produce a "trouble code" Look in a Haynes repair manual and match the code to your code and it will reveal the problem...replace the faulty part and the check engine light should go away.

Engine check light showed up when I drove at 65 mph


I would recommend having the computer checked for trouble codes next. The codes will help point a mechanic in the right direction for what to test.

If it is running bad enough to be backfiring, the Check Engine light should be on. I would start with scanning the engine computer for fault codes.

You can defeat the oil level sensor by shorting the connector. Use a thick paper clip or other wire shaped in a "U" to connect the terminals in the plug. For the other problem, we will need trouble codes. Is the engine light on?

The technician should check for a short by putting an inductive ammeter on the positive or negative cable.

If the draw is over .2 A you have a short somewhere in your car's transmission, or accessories, or something.

I have 2006 scion xb and when driving the rpm stays around3500-4000 when running 65 mph can it be modified to run lower rpm


3500 is about normal for an xb at 65 mph. My previous ride was a pickup and rolled at about 2000-2500 on the highway. But the XB's engine is way more "tightly wound". Your rpm gage should run at about half of of your speed...ie: 70 mph will be about 35 (3500) rpm, 80 mph will be about 40 (4000) rpm. Freaked me out when I first got the thing, but after researching it Ive found out that with a stock engine it actually runs more efficient at the higher RPM's. The 06 boxes won't redline until 6000 rpm, so unless you are driving 120 on a frequent basis you're good. You can probably have it modified to run lower, but you will lose the awesome gas mileage and overall it is not going to improve the way it runs, and would have no benefit............
