Check oil levels every fill up of gas.
if you see drop of level then, then check more often.
same answer for 100 years,and will never change. (otto cyle engines, ICE)
if not, say good bye to $3000 for a new engine.

    Mine did the same (I have a 2003 model), except we picked up the problem early enough ! In the oil sump is an oil sieve - this gets blocked by age, never mind if you service your car regularly. Clean it properly and put it back. Unfortunately, you'll have to check this by every second service (30 000 km interval) to make sure it doesn't get blocked again.

Can anyone tell where to find a/c relays ,because my a/c does not switch on and display is off I'm driving 2003 toyota runx 180 rsi.

No relay for the A/C controller, just a fuse. Marked HVAC. There is a relay for the blower. Built into the blower resistor. But that doesn't keep the controller from lighting up.

I am driving a toyota runx 2004 model it shows P/S sign on dashboard what does it mean?

It is telling you there is something wrong with the power steering system. It cuts the stereo to draw your attention to the warning light.
Check the level of the power steering fluid is correct.

Hi, I drive a Toyota Runx. A few days ago the OIL PRESSURE WARNING dashboard light went off. I didn't understand it, so i drove on. The next day the car stalled. Now the flywheel in the cylinder head is...

There is no way of knowing what all has been damaged by the low oil pressure without taking the motor apart. you might get away with replacing the heads and flywheel but something else will pop up later and cost you more trouble. You will also have to replace the oil pump since the pressure dropped, umnless you just ran out of oil and the pump wan't hurt. My advice on this is to talk to an engine rebuilder and get an estimate on rebuilding your current engine, that way he can save any parts that were not damaged and will only have to replace the bad parts. Check to see what the difference in price is whether you replace the motor with a new one vs a low milage used one against the cost of rebuilding yours. Some cases it eisier to replace the motor instead of rebuilding. I suspect that you have much more damage than you think. Loosing oil pressure is a death sentence for engines!

The yellow symbol with a line under it means only to warn you if the engine oil level is low when its running. If its RED sign then this is your low engine oil pressure warning light.
