E = error. Have dealer run scan test for fault codes.

Electronic Transmission Error Indicator
The vehicle is equipped with a redundant electronic gearshift indicator. This character appears with the key in the RUN position and displays the same gear selection as shown on the selector lever floor console next to the range selector lever. If an "E" character flashes or remains on this indicates that a transmission malfunction has occurred.

What is the function of L in corolla s gear


Hi, I have spent some time researching this, and have come to the following evaluation:
Assuming your Toyota Corolla S is an automatic:

P, R, N, D, these are all letters on your automatic transmission that you're probably familiar with. However, you might rarely, if at all, shift into "L" on the gear shift. So what does this letter stand for? And should you use it?
L stands for low gear. When your car is in drive, or D, the automatic transmission will shift through the gears as your speed increases. When your car is in low, or L, the transmission won't shift. Instead, it remains in a low gear, and less fuel is injected into the engine. This gives you less speed, but what you sacrifice in speed you make up for in engine torque. Basically, using low gear gives the engine more power.
Torque is useful when you're towing something with your automatic. Towing requires more torque, but if you tow in drive it puts more strain on your engine as the transmission cycles through the gears. Keeping it in low gear lets you keep the torque, which makes towing easier, and reduces the stress on your engine. Another reason you might use low gear is for driving up a hill in order to give your engine the power to get up the hill without over-stressing it. Low gear is also useful for driving in snow or on icy roads, because it reduces your speed and gives you more control over the vehicle.

I hope this helped, please feel free to write a testimonial if it did :)

Why does the oil engine light come on when i engage the clutch ?


Hi!

When a car is in gear with the Gas pedal pushed down, the engine RPM is high so the oil pressure is high too that means the Sending unit is detecting high pressure. But when you engage the clutch that means the gas pedal is released so the RPM drops and the pressure drops down too. So all i can say is that you might have a bad oil pump that needs always high RPM to keep the oil pressure normal.

Good luck

Car won't start there is power to the starter. Starter is new. p1684 code the dash lights reset and says done and the the code p1684 comes on. Also you can not tell what gear the car is in there...


Hi,
I just wanted to show you what I found on the internet regarding p1684:
"P1684 engine code

The P1684 code simply means that the battery has been disconneted within the last 50 starts."

What does it mean when a green light comes on in the dash with the letter "S"?


This means your car has a built in "sports" shifter, which allows you to control the gears your car runs in manually, between D3 and D4 while its moving, its essentially an "overdrive" button. and if you read my posts, you'll discover that his light will soon become a huge pain.....

ENGINE MALFUNCTION LIGHT STAYS ON


If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.

A solid light can mean anything.

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially go on

My dad's Liberty will start with no problem but then the engine light flashes 5 times and then will stall once it hits second gear-please tell me what the 5 flashes mean


I would take the vehicle to your local autozone and have the codes checked and that can tell you with a lot more accuracy what the issue is.
Thanks,
Lee
