2006 Highlander - Check engine light and VSC light on. What does this mean?

you will need to hook up a scan tool, I know many parts stores will loan you one or let you use it in the parking lot, VSC could have something to do with a wheel mounted speed sensor, did you hit something? any noises, try this and see if it goes away
    • 1 Shut off the vehicle's engine and apply the parking brake to protect yourself while working on the vehicle.
    • 2 Open the vehicle's hood and examine the engine compartment. Locate the air filter box mounted to the left of the engine. The air filter box features a black exterior, square in shape, and a large ribbed intake hose.
    • 3 Check all of the small black vacuum lines surrounding the air filter box. Reconnect any disconnected or loose vacuum lines you find.
    • 4 Start the engine and drive the vehicle to clear the "VSC" warning light displayed on the dashboard. If the VSC light fails to go out after driving the vehicle normally, proceed to the next step.
    • 5 Park the vehicle, turn off the engine and set the parking brake. Open the vehicle's hood and disconnect the battery's negative cable for 15 seconds, using an appropriate size socket. Disconnecting the negative battery cable will reset the vehicle's computer and clear the "VSC" warning.

93 isuzu rodeo with 3.2 engine cuts off when you give it gas

Vehicles need fuel, spark, and air to run. You started with the basics like spark and fuel, great. Slow down on the parts installations and take yourself back to basics.

1. Check your fuel lines for leaks.
2. Inspect the vacuum lines for cracks ( you stated it got cold outside. This may contribute to old hard lines cracking).
3. Remove the air filter box and filter and make sure airflow is free of any blockage. Test car without air filter installed and see if it stays running while giving gas. If it does replace air filter
4. Check the throttle body Mass Air Flow Sensor. This detects how much air is coming into the system. It reports to the main computer. If the MAF tells the computer there is significantly not enough air the the system will shut down. My guess would be a big vacuum leak or you have a bad MAF.

When i change my original air box 2 cold air what do i do with the 2small vacume lines 2 the original air box?

best thing to do is find a way to connect the vacuum lines to the new cold air intake. best way is probably drill a hole is pipe and tack on or silver solder some little air fittings for the vacuum lines to fit onto, otherwise you can do it the bodge way and just drill tight fit holes in the pipe so the hose push tight into it.

During an oil change at jiffy lube, the car drove in fine, but once the oil change was done the car wouldn't start. The engine would turn over and it looked like the engine was shaking around a lot. They...

Many times when oil appears in your air intake and in the air filter this is usually caused by a plugged pcv valve Positive crankcase ventilation valve it costs anywhere from 3-10 dollars.As far as it not starting my guess is they checked the air filter and left a vacuum hose or airbox open.Some of these vehicle will barely run if an air leak is present at the airbox containing the air filter.Would double check for any vacuum lines that may have been disconnected around the air box and that the box is shut and sealed properly.

Get engine air filter out and install new.

Step 1 Unfasten wire harness to MAF (massive air flow) sensor located on top of the black tube leading from the air box to the plenum.
  • Step 2 Unplug the vacuum line located on top of the black tube. This simply pops in and out so you might need to be forceful, but apply common sense since it's a plastic vacuum line.
  • Step 3 Loosen band clamp with the screw driver at the top of the black tube that is attached to the aluminum air chamber that run to the plenum. Also, loosen the other band clamp located at the bottom of the tube closest to the air box. The idea is to remove this tube with the MAF sensor intact in between. Do not remove the band clamps, simply loosen them enough to wiggle off the tube and move it out of the way.
  • Step 4 Unclip both fasteners at the top of the air box and pull out and up to remove air box cover. Remove old air filtermag-glass_10x10.gif and if there's a good deal of dust and debris inside the air box, you could wipe it out with a rag or even vacuum it out with a shop vacuum.
  • Step 5 Insert new filter and replace air box cover. Make sure the retaining tabs are locked in at the bottom correctly. Refasten top locking clips to air box cover.
  • Step 6 Reinstall air tube making sure to replace top part back on correctly to aluminum air chamber. Not properly reinstalling this air tube will result in the computer of the car throwing a check engine code. On the bottom of the black air tube is a small tab and if tube is replaced properly should line up in a notch molded into the air box cover. Tighten band clamps with screw driver and reconnect wire harness and plug plastic vacuum line back in.

    I have a fuel filter for 1991 Honda Accord and need to install it

    when ur standing in front of ur vehicle with the hood open ... look straight back to the throttle body . now look to the left about a 12inches there is a box(black) with a few vacuum lines going to it. beneath that box there is the fuel filter. you see it ? has 2 lines comeing out the top of it. its round and black.. remove the black box by removeing the 10mm bolts and slideing it off the firewall(upward) lay it aside..with the box still attached to the lines... now for u it may be easier to remove rubber air intake duct to access the filter. remove the fuel line with a flarenut wrench or line wrench.. do not use vice grips. the other line could be removed with a regular socket and ratchet set up. now remove the 10mm bolts to remove the filter with bracket off the firewall. remove the old filter and install new filter onto the bracket . re install it to the firewall then the lines and reinstall all other components . u may have taken off ... do not forget the washers on the filter line, it will leak with out them. .tighten but over tighten. run the vehicle and check filter and lines for leaks. remember : use a flarenut linewrench to remove the metal fuel line . its the line that looks like it has a nut that threads into the filter....also heres how the washers go back on... filter /washer/.... line with circle banjo fitting/washer......bolt.... tighten down... hope this wasnt too confuseing .. it is just hard to explain in words... let me know how it worked out..good luck...

    Any hint why my code light came on 2001 Highlander?

    Check the vacuum lines on the air box where the air filter is. A leak will cause the computer to misread the problem. On my 2001 Highlander Ltd., the computer code said the #3 oxygen sensor was bad. It wasn't.
