    I recently bought a 1997 Lucida A s i was driving back on motor way

    oil presure light came up blinking and then as i increase the speed it went off . i took the car to work shop i was told the oil is too thin and need to change and it was safe to drive , i drove further 90 miles .

    Now i had a full service done on the car including proper grade oil . but

    the light has again come up .The manual syes this light does not refer to oil level ! an one knows what it refers to and how to solve this mistry .

    the performance of car is unaffected.

    this would almost for sure be the oil pressure sensor.

Have the oil pressure checked as soon as you can to rule out the oil pump and possible damage to the motor

My 1997 Toyota Camry Check engine light is comming in day time and when check engine light is on problem in auto gare shifting but in morning its ok and i chick gair sencer also but nothing happen

Your car stores computer fault codes in the engine/trans modules. They set the CHECK ENGINE light on to alert you a fault is now stored and there is a problem that requires diagnosis. You need to get the fault code scanned to proceed further. There are over 1300 DIFFERENT reasons to turn on the check engine light, some could be minor (a loose gascap), some major (CRANK SENSOR/CAM SENSOR CORRELATION...Car will stall when one finally fails!)
Checking the exact code is the only way to proceed.

Check your brake fluid if low have your brakes checked. The brake ligh on the dash stays on if fluid is low or if there is a pressure differential (leak).

1997 camry check engine light

Start with the O2 sensor, it's the cheaper solution. If the light still comes on, then it has to be the converter. Make sure you change all the O2 sensors.

Brake light warning light stays on only in cold weather.1997 toyato camry

check your brake fluid, if fluid is low light will come on. the only other time is if the brake pedal looses preasure and then the pedal would be low, also you may what to have brakes checked, when fluid goes low it also means brakes may be low, hope this is helpful.

If it has a leak. It wont matter how often you change it if it doesnt stay in. also if the radiator has not been serviced when it should, that can help destroy the inside of the engine as well.
