If there are no apparent symptoms associated with the CEL then chances are that you will be OK. Check all your fluid levels. If you are cautious have the codes read from the stored on board diagnostics. The CEL makes no distinction between minor and major problems, although with major problems you are generally aware of them without the need for the CEL.

How to change spark plug on 2006 cadillac DTS. My chech engine light is on, will this fix the problem. 88,000 miles


The plugs are located by engine head. You can use a ratchet wrench and sockets to remove them. Make sure to mark the plug wires so the order doesn't get mixed up.
The check engine light comes on when there is a bad sensor, or bad circuit.
Many part stores will run an engine diagnostic code scan for free which will pinpoint exact problem that is setting of the check engine light
The light can only be shut off by the diagnostic scanner!!

This is very common on Matrix/Corollas and is repairable by way of replacement PCM to correct invalid parameters. the labor is low but the part is very expensive.

Expect approximately $89 or less in labor, and $648 for the new PCM

Pressure Control Solenoid D electrical fault (P2716)


There is a Bulletin on this concern, and it is a warrantable condition for 8 years or 80,000 miles so you are still covered by the factory warranty.
The problem is a logic issue in the PCM. The correction is a new PCM with updated software.

Check engine light comes on and the transmission shifts rough.


There is a tsb on this and the fix is to change the engine contrl
ol modul if the code is p2716. There is nothing wrong with the solenoid....the problem is the sender to the solenoid.

Toyota Matrix Check engine light is on


Is it a check engine light or Maintenance Required light? If its the maintenance required light, turn the car off, push and hold the trip odometer button while turning the ignition back on. Don't start the car. You'll see five dashes that will count down to none. That'll reset the maintenance required light. Do it after every oil change and it'll come on when its time for an oil change.

2006 matrix shifting in transmission problem


This is a known condition. And, is under warranty.

Take your vehicle to a Toyota dealership. Ask them to replace your ECU per TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) TC015-07. The new ECU has redesigned logic that rectifys your condition.
