SOURCE: malfunction symbol appearing

Does it look like an engine? It means you have a problem with the engine. Those vans don't have a low coolant sensor.

SOURCE: Hi,i have a 1988 toyota conquest. the oil light is

if there are no other symptoms like valve lifter clatter or noise.. then is possible that the oil pressure is ok but that the oil pressure sending unit is bad .. you can have an oil pressure test done to make sure thats ok .. .. the sending unit jus screws in and isnt expensive .. another possibility is that sledge has formed and clogged the intake screen for the oil pump .. that can sometimes be cleaned out without removing the pan ... if the oil pressure is really low then its not a good idea to run the engine very much and especially not fast .. you can have a bad sending unit that operates only at very high pressures such as high speed .. so i wouldn't count that out yet ... if the engine has a history of not having timely oil changes or its been using low quality oil, i would suspect the sledge buildup ... if it has lots of miles then suspect a warn out or clogged oil pump .. an oil pump pressure test will tell you a lot and can be done topside .. ...

Tire pressure light does not go off. how do i reset? also on the hatchback lift the button doesn't work. i can remove the inside cover and manually open it by manually sliding the switch. how do i...


All you have to do to reset the TPMS light is make sure all your tires are set around 35-38 psi then drive it a a couple miles and the light will turn off. If it is blinking then you have a sensor issue and you will have to take it to the dealer. The tire pressure warning light is yellow not red."Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate when the system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with the low tire pressure telltale. When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists. When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons, including the installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tires or wheels on your vehicle to ensure that the replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow"

My oil indicator symbol is lit but my oil level is OK,but it felt sluggish as well 2003 BMW 325i I have also had the oil can 'orange' symbol come on for about 6 seconds on a number of occasions recently


Hi dennis,

It sounds like you have a malfunctioning oil level sensor. Even with the oil level correct, if the oil warning indicator comes on after starting, the sensor is reading incorrectly. I would recommend replacing the sensor with your next oil service. As far as the sluggishness, the sensor operation will not affect that. I suspect that is a different issue.

Car drives sluggish in drive.


There are quite a few things that will cause the car to drive "sluggish," so I won't try to tell you all of them without a more specific indication of the problem (does sluggish refer to way the engine runs or the way the car handles, for example), but:
Looking at the car from the front, the dip stick for the transaxle is down very low at the left hand side of the engine, close to being under the battery. It is normally yellow. Follow the large water hose that runs down next to your battery. The yellow dip stick handle is right along side of that hose (to the right of it) down low. It will either pull out or unscrew.
Ordinarily, if the transmission has a problem, your D4 light will start flashing. There is a way to read the codes, given the number of flashes and whether they are long or short, but it's involved. If your D4 starts flashing (beyond just coming on when you put it in gear) you probably should have it checked.
Usually, the way an engine runs has more to do with fuel/air mix or ignition than it does with the transmission. Have you, for example, changed your air filter recently? Your plugs? But there are many other things, as I said.
Hope this helps.
