Question about Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

I have a 1997 Toyota 4Runner and the Malfunction Indicator Lamp came on today. I took it to Auto Zone for a free diagnostic test and it came back as P0441...Definition: Evaporative emission control system incorrect purge flow. Probable cause: 1. - Leak in evap system 2. - Blocked Evap purge line 3. - Faulty purge VSV What do I need to do next? Is it safe to still be driving myself and my daughter around in? I also just had an emissions test 3 days ago, and it passed, but did that cause something to possibly go wrong in my truck now? That MIL light was not on before or right after the emissions test?

The cause of this problem is a faulty gas cap. It is not making a proper seal. Change the cap & reset light with ob11 code reader. There may possibly be a leak elsewhere but this is usually the case. Good luck!

How do you reset the Malfunction Indicator Lamp in the On-board Diagnostic System in a 2003 VW Jetta?


Was the problem fixed? If not, the lamp will continue to come on until the problem is fixed.
Take your car to your local Auto Zone and ask them to perform a diagnostic test on the vehicle. They can tell you which system is failing and some ideas on how to fix it. The service is at no cost and only takes a couple of minutes.
Good luck.

Malfunction indicator lamp in my toyota corolla is on how i fix?


The check engine light also called the malfunction indicator comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

I have a 2005 Chrysler 300C hemi and the malfunction indicator light came on. What should I do?


The malfunction indicator light(mil) can come on, if there is a problem in
1 or more of the vehicle's systems. Such as fuel/electrical or emissions.
To isolate the problem, the car needs to be scanned with an OBD II
(onboard diagnostic)scanner. You can stop by any of the auto parts chain store's(advance/auto zone/napa)and they will scan it for free.
Hope this helps.

Take your car to an Auto Zone, they will put it on the computer for free. As long as the light is on, they can pull up repair codes. 96 is the cut off year for when you can use a diagnostic computer. Good luck

Malfuntion indicator lamp in my toyota yaris


Most Auto Part stores like napa or kragen will read the malfunction code for you for free. Once you get that done post the code so we can give you a better understanding on your concern. Oh if your light is flashing please don't drive it that means you are doing immediate damage.
