Set your odometer display to Trip A. Turn the ignition off. Hold the odometer stalk in and turn the car to on.(not start). The odometer display will show -------------, keep holding the stalk in until they the all go away and you see 000000. The Maint light is now reset.

Cruise will not work on 2008 avalon


Make sure there aqre no warning lights on the dash on, check the brake fluid it needs to be near the full mark, check the brake lights and be sure they are all working, if the cruise indicator light does not turn on check the fuses on the inside dash at the lower left.

Black smoke from 2000 Avalon


I can change my oil every 3 decades and it'll be at regular intervals. What are your intervals? 3000 miles? 84 million Mississippi? One lap around Daytona Raceway?

Where do you see the black smoke and carbon coming from?

A mechanic that "forgot" to change the oil filter is not only a poor mechanic, but he/she is ripping you off. You need an oil filter with each oil change more than you need new oil. If I poured clean water through a dirty Brita filter, would you drink it?

There is no way to tell you exactly what's wrong over the internet (besides your mechanic). But, assuming the smoke and carbon you mentioned is coming from...

the HOOD: You either have an oil leak, or just a bunch of oil sitting on your engine burning off. Check oil with dipstick (something you should be doing at least once a week in a NEW car, let alone a 10year old model.) The leak could be poor workmanship by your mechanic, or something entirely different, too.

the EXHAUST PIPE: You may have blown your piston rings or have a stuck/bent valve.

Toyotas are somewhat known for running well beyond when they should. I blew out rings in my '93 pickup and drove it daily for 3 more months before it actually quit. I'm still not convinced it's dead.

Maintenance reqd indication light is still showing on the dashboard after have changed the oil filter and oil. What is the problem? My car is 2008 Toyota Avalon.


Set the display window to ODO.
Turn the ignition switch off.
While pressing the reset switch, turn the ignition switch on(IG). Keep pressing the reset switch for at least 5 seconds to complete reset procedure.

*IF this does not work you have be confused with the warning light, it may not be the oil life, but check engine light, refer to owners manual for clarity.

The oil was recently changed on my 2008 Toyota Avalon Touring model and it now shows the oil level as about 1/2 inch above the full line. Will it damage the vehicle to leave it overfilled like this?


Hi

Overfilling with oil is never a good idea as it increases the load on the oil pump, however half inch is nothing to worry about the car will burn this off over a month or so.

If you are concerened though you can just loosen the oil filter, this will allow some oil out without you having to drop all the oil again. loosen then tighten back up once eniough is out. also you know you should only ever dip your oil when the car is cold as when hot you do not get a true reading.
Hope that helps
Regards
Dan
