2001 Toyota Tacoma flashing Check Engine Light and misfire...oil light will come on as well after running for a bit.


Have you tried replacing the plug wires? Change your oil and filter your filter may be plugging up and causing your oil pressure to drop.

Losing oil pressure when at idle. pressure is fine when driving


A comparatively quiet engine is often a worn out engine.( Much of the knocking sound in an engine is caused by compression and expansion of gasses, which in a worn out engine is reduced due to leakage of gasses beyond the piston rings or valves.)

You will first have to have the engine pressure tested on each cylinder to ascertain the overall condition.
Usually there are one of two reasons for a low oil pressure warning light or gauge reading.


No.1: The engine is badly worn and oil pressure can leak beyond the piston rings and into the cylinder.


No.2: The oil pump is close to failing or has already failed.


There is also the slight possibility that both of these faults have occurred at the same time.

I recently bought a 2001 avalon with 139k runs and drives great but check engine light came on, we did oil change and did not go out but also have noticed white smoke coming from tailpipe when cranked for...


First, the check engine light is telling you there is a problem with the emissions or performance of the engine. You need to have someone scan the computer for trouble codes.
The smoke in the morning could be a leaking head gasket - something is leaking into the cylinders and being burned.

How may more miles can I drive in my 2006 Matrix after the Engine Maint. reqd. light goes on? I am just a few miles beyond the number set by mechanic (at my last oil change) for next oil change. I have...


No problem, you will be fine to drive it until you can get to the shop as long as the engine seems to be running OK and it is not overheating or the "oil" light is not on. Something as simple as a loose gas cap can turn on the maintenance light, chances are though, on this car it was common for a failing VVT-i cam sprocket to get stuck and cause misfire codes. The fix involves replacing the cam sprocket, something Toyota used to cover under warranty, but not likely anymore.

Engine light is on.


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine or Service Engine Soon lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. Not fluid related, but could be a small problem that's easy to fix now. Even a loose gas cap can turn the light on. Have a code scan, that's the starting point.
