K-D Tools 3253 End Cap Oil Filter Wrench This is a comment for this filter wrench I found on amazon.com here is the link-----The following is not my comment, but hopefully it'll help you.

http://www.amazon.com/K-D-Tools-3253-Filter-Wrench/dp/B0002SR4AY/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

I bought this tool to remove the filter housing on my 2009 Toyota Highlander 4-cyl. The filter housing seems to be made out of some composite material and I did not want to grab it with the pliers-type oil filter wrench. K-D Tools 3253 end cap wrench fit the housing perfectly and made the removal and the installation of the filter housing easy.

WHY DOES VSC & CHECK ENGINE LIGHT STAYON


diagnostic reader and or workshop time required to
to fix both VSC and engine light faults /codes


VSC is brake /traction related ..... this is one explanation

It would appear that system braking, traction control, and possibly some anti rollover control is dis abled if this warning light is on. So it is both fuel in efficient and possibly dangerous to drive with this light on.

engine light

there are stored fault codes in the engine computer module pointing to faulty sensors on the car needing to be checked or replaced

2009 Toyota Highlander starts but dies, and after ramming the moter adventually will start after 3 or 4 tries. But TRAC light and check engine light stays on.


You would first need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes. The trac and check engine lights are on because the computer has found a problem with the engine and that can affect traction control.
It could be a fuel pump or a long list of other things.

What does vsc stands for when light comes on and what threat does it have on 2004 Toyota highlander


I believe VSC in the warning lights is Variable Speed Controller. It should be dealing with the traction control. If that is malfunctioning your traction control system isn't working properly. essentially what this does is automatically control how your drive train applies power to the drive wheels in order to maintain control of the vehicle on the different terrains it is driven.

The abs/vsc/trac and check engine lights stay on. could this be a problem associated with emission control?


Its possible.

Whenever the check engine light comes on the VSC and Traction control will disable because they need the engine at 100% in order to function correctly. Since the ABS light is on I would have to wonder if it isn't an abs problem. Since the VSC and Traction control use the ABS sensors/system to function.

Or there is a problem with both the engine and the ABS.

The only way to know for sure is to have the PCM scanned and the ABS module to see what is goind on.

2005 Toyota Highlander check engine, track off and vsc light on, what is the problem


there are literally hundreds of codes that would turn on the check engine light. the track off and vsc lights come on together, indicating a problem with the traction control system. again, many different items will turn these lights on. the only way to narrow it down is to hook it up to an OBD-II diagnostic tool and find out all the codes that are listed. if you don't have one, take it to a shop
