1997 is a long time going without a tune up. so check/change the air filter, spark plugs, oil is a good start.

Sounds like you have a leaking head gasket maybe. Does the smoke have a sweet smell to it? If not it is oil or fuel.

My Toyota diesel engine type 2kd ( Hilux 2006 pick-up WD)has a problem on fuel system, sometimes engine check lamp become on, engine RPM goes down , when switch off the engine and re-started back the

Please write back with a lot more information, the more i know from you, the faster we can get this fixed. Please explain what you have done or not done recently. I don't know if a oil change was done or the fuel filter, or that these symptoms just occurred out of the blue. My first guess is that your "Fuel Light" came on because a restriction was noticed at your fuel filter. It may just mean that you need to service the fuel system (replace the fuel filter). Please write back and I will do my best to help you resolve this problem. If you still have the owners manual, take a look inside. It contains a lot of valuable information pertaining to warning lights, maintenance intervals, and so on. Let me know how you are doing, good luck.

I owns a Toyota Hilux Vigo and recently the fuel system warning light came on, I changed the fuel filter but the light is still on. please advise what could be the problem

You can try to reset the ecu, just switch the ignition into off position, disconnect the sensor cable at the fuel filter housing, turn the key into on position, but dont start your car, connect back the cable, the warning should goes off after fews second.

The yellow oil light comes on for about 5-10 secs when you start the car from cold, and then goes off.


The usual problems that would give you a delay in the oil warning light going out are...

1. Oil contaminated by fuel, and thin due to fuel injection system problems, and fuel draining into sump.

( How long ago did you last change the oil and filter ? Usually about....1 Yr or 12.OOO Mls)
Wipe oil from engine dip stick on tissue, and smell it for fuel !

Have you noticed you use a lot of fuel lately, and the car blows black smoke from exhaust on hard acceleration ?

2. Oil Warning light transmitter faulty. ( The Most Common !)
3. Oil pump pick up strainer clogged.
4. Oil pump faulty.
5 Oil draining back into the sump from the oil filter.( Faulty check valve )

If I were you, I would change the Oil and Filter, and renew the Oil Warning Light Transmitter, and go from there.
If you have a Master Oil Pressure Guage, fit it to the block when the O/W/ Transmitter is off, and run engine to confirm pressure is there from start up, and what it reads when hot, this will put your mind at ease.

Good Luck !
