There are a number of reasons the engine light can come on. It can mean that it's time for a full tune up (plugs/points/etc). It can also mean a catalytic converter needs to be changed depending on how many miles you have on the car. You really need to take it in to a qualified Toyota mechanic to have it diagnosed before you have severe engine problems.

My accord will not reverse and my d lihgt is flashing.what is my problem?


This should be an indication that the PCM has detected a transmission issue. The transmission fluid level may be low, can you verify the level? Please read your owners manual for proper fluid type and follow the instructions to properly check the level. The car must be on level ground. You may need to send the car to the dealer for diagnostics if you don't find anything. Please let me know how you made out, good luck.

    Want to change power steering pump



    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

    1. Disconnect the hoses at the pump and tape or plug the openings shut to prevent contamination or excessive fluid loss. Position the disconnected lines in a raised position to help prevent leakage.
    2. Remove the pump belt.
    3. Loosen the retaining bolts and any braces, then remove the pump assembly.

    To install:
    1. Install the pump on the engine with the retaining bolts hand-tight.
    2. Remove the plugs or tape, then connect and tighten the hose fittings.
    3. Refill the pump with fluid and pre-bleed by turning the pulley counterclockwise (viewed from the front). Stop the bleeding when air bubbles no longer appear.
    4. Install the pump belt on the pulley, then properly adjust the belt tension and tighten the retaining bolts. Refer to of this guide for details on belt adjustment.
    5. Check for proper operation, then recheck fluid level and bleed the system, as necessary.


    SYSTEM BLEEDING

    1. Fill the fluid reservoir with fresh fluid.
    2. Let the fluid stand undisturbed for two minutes, then crank the engine for about two seconds. Refill reservoir is necessary.
    3. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 above until the fluid level remains constant after cranking the engine.
    4. Raise the front of the car until the wheels are off the ground, then start and run the engine. Increase the engine speed to about 1,500 rpm.
    5. Turn the wheels to the left and right without hitting or only lightly contacting the wheel stops. Check the fluid level and refill, as necessary. If the oil is extremely foamy, allow the car to stand a few minutes with the engine off, then repeat the procedure.

    A whirring sound, maybe power steering pump


    HI. You power steering fluid level may be low at this point, a quick inspection of the fluid level, will be in order, if possible. Once you have verified that the fluid level is sufficient, move on to the actual power steering belt and unit. Make sure the belt is tight, and rotating the pulley. If the fluid level is low, be sure to fill to specifications.

    Now, If the pulley and belt are rotating without a wobble, and the fluid level is sufficient, this will lead to a failed pump. The pump should be replaced in this case. Make sure you exhaust all inspections points mentioned before replacing the pump.

    CHECK LIST

    1. Check the power steering pump hoses for leaks
    2. Check the power steering pump pulley for lose fit or wobble during rotation,
    3. Check the power steering reservoir for proper level(add if needed)
    4. Check the power steering drive belt for the proper tension.

    97 Altima dashboard brake light stays on


    Check your brake fluid level in the engine compartment. Its located on the rear RH side of the engine compartment, its a white/clear resevoir connecting to a large black circular object. If the fluid is low, fill to proper level, also I would recommend having your brake system checked as there may be a leak. If the fluid is fine and at the proper level, you may have a damaged/broken brake fluid level sensor or damaged/broken Emergency brake switch. Hopefully this helps....please rate thanks!!
