You need to reset the maintenance reminder manually after you change the oil. You can do this by holding in the trip reset button and turning the key to the run position. keep holding the button down. the odometer should switch to all dashes and then the dashes will start to disapear. once there all gone it has been reset. Sometimes the trip odometer needs to be on a sometimes it needs to be on b. Your owners manual will have further instructions if you need then.

When my toyota camry 2004 is driving it act like it wants to slow down then it picks back up speed


So the check engine light doesnt necessarily have anything to do with oil. The light comes on when the computer sees that something is going wrong, but it could be a hundred different things. Take the car to an autozone and have them pull the codes for the car, then report back what the code numbers are and we can go from there. Without knowing the codes, I can only guess that your engine is missing because your spark plugs are fouled ( just change them; not expensive) or you dont have enough air coming in, causing the engine to flood. It could also be a fuel hangup but this is less likely. When you visit autozone for the codes, go ahead and pick up some spark plugs and wires and change them ( you can definitely do this yourself if you have ae rachet set with an extension. If not, buy one because they really come in handy!)

Maintenance required light on 2008 camry, why is it on?


Hello. Welcome to FIxYa. Please allow us to assist you

The maintenance required light is there to remind you that your oil change is due. This light needs to be reset after the oil ic changed, it is manually reset. If you just had your oil changed, the light will not go off by itself. The light is designed to illuminate after 5,000 miles since the last reset procedure.

How to tune up 2008 toyota rav 4


As the cars technology advances, the term tune up is fading and replacing with term Scheduled Maintenance Service. For most of the cars the time for these maintenance service is at 30K, 60K and 90K. You have to choices:
Service your car by yourself, or send to a dealer. Because maintenance services might be as basic as an oil change, air filter replacement, or more complicated as brake job, coolant system flush, brake fluid flush, transmission oil and filter change, and finally as complicated as, timing belt/chain replacement, if you decide to service by yourself, I recommend to Haynes Repair Manual, Specific for your car.
For your car Toyota provides all Scheduled Maintenance Services according to the miles on your car at:
http://smg.toyotapartsandservice.com/
The answer for your question based on Toyota blog is:

Replace engine oil and oil filter

Can anybody tell me the correct type and weight of oil a 2004 volvo xc 90 uses also # for replacment oil filter


Oil filter is provided by year,make, model of your vehicle at the parts store. ---
Oil and fluids Oil quality
Engine oil must meet the minimum ILSAC specification GF-2, including ACEA A1, API SJ, SJ/CF and SJ/Energy Conserving.
Your Volvo has been certified to standards using ILSAC oil specification GF-2 5W-30. Volvo recommends use of oil with a quality rating equal to or higher than ILSAC GF-2. Equivalent and better oils include ACEA A1, API SJ, SJ/CF, and SJ/Energy conserving. Lower quality oils may not offer the same fuel economy, engine performance, or engine protection.
Volvo Cars recommends Castrol. Depending on your driving habits, premium or synthetic oils may provide superior fuel economy and engine protection. Consult your Volvo retailer for recommendations on premium or synthetic oils. Oil additives must not be used. NOTE: Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is changed at the normal maintenance is carried out. This oil is only used at customer request, at additional charge. Please consult your Volvo retailer. Operation in hot climates.
When temperatures exceed 86° F (30° C) in your area, Volvo recommends, for the protection of your engine, that you use a heavier weight oil, such as SAE 10W-30. See the viscosity chart below. pg129a.jpg Oil viscosity (stable ambient temperatures)
Operation in temperate climates
Incorrect viscosity oil can shorten engine life. Under normal use when temperatures do not exceed 86° F (30° C), SAE 5W-30 will provide good fuel economy and engine protection. See the viscosity chart above. Extreme engine operation
Synthetic oils meeting SAE 10W-30 and complying with oil quality requirements are recommended for driving in areas of sustained temperature extremes (hot or cold), when towing a trailer over long distances, and for prolonged driving in mountainous areas. Changing oil and oil filter
Oil and oil filter changes should be made at 7,500 mile (12,000 km) intervals. Volvo does not recommend the use of oil additives.
Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is changed at the normal maintenance intervals except at ower request and at additional charge. Please consult your Volvo retailer.

What does the "maintenance required" light mean and how do you reset it on a 2004 toyota solara?


Maintenance light is turned on when your vehicle is due for service. It is set to turn on at a certain mileage. At minimum, you need an oil change service and what ever is required at your mileage interval. Resetting the light is as simple as, Ignition Key in the off position, press and hold the odometer button, Turn the ignition key on and continue to hold the odometer button for at least ten seconds. If properly done, you will see dashes across your odometer as you hold the button, until the odometer reading reappears. Hope this helps. Please leave feedback.

Replace a 2004 Camry oil filter


For your car the Oil filter should be on the front left side of the engine as you look at it.
You will more then likely have to remove a small body panel to access it.
The drain plug should be located on the left side of the oil pan as well.

The Filter your car requires is a Wix #51348
Oil Capacity is 4.5 qts with Filter Change, double check your owner's manual or service manual to make sure.
So purchase 6 qts of you have some on hand when you check it and find it's a bit low.
General Procedures.

  • Gather necessary tools and materials. 
  • If you plan to change your oil regularly, consider investing in jack stands, a socket set
    (adapter to go from 3/8 to1/2 inch for strap wrench), a strap wrench, oil drain pan, leather gloves, funnel and a magnetic retrieval tool
    (to retrieve the plug encase you drop it in the hot oil). 
  • Run the car's engine for 10 minutes before you drain the oil. Warm oil drains faster than cold oil. 
  • Park the car on a level surface, engage the parking brake and turn off the engine. 
  • If your car has a low clearance, raise it by driving it onto a ramp or by jacking it up and supporting it securely. 
  • Open the hood and place the new oil and funnel on top of the engine to ensure that you won't forget to add oil afterwards. 
  • (an expensive mistake that many do-it-yourselfers make!).
