You need to ask what grade of oil he used,if he used 5/30 then GET IT CHANGED to 10/40 ASAP.TOYOTA worldwide use 10/40 semi synthetic(regardless of your dealers say so)it is supplied by Castrol to toyota worldwide.(in very hot countries STD 20/50 is used.)

Oil light flickers was told oil pressure is good?


There may be a misunderstanding here.
Yes the warning light comes on when the oil pressure drops below 5psi.
If the light comes on and the switch is working correctly, the oil pressure is not good. Any problem with the pump or the screen would make the pressure not good.
If the oil pressure has been checked with a mechanical gauge and it is above 20psi, the switch or the wiring could be faulty.
You would need to have the pressure checked to know.

Where is the fuse for the 2002 highlander ABS


The fuse for the ABS in a 2002 Highlander is in the black plastic covered box under the hood. If you take the fuse out, the ABS warning light and the emergency brake warning light will illuminate on your dashboard. The brakes will work as if you never had ABS, and the car will chime when you first start off if the emergency brakes are on.

I have a 2002 Highlander and the check engine light just came on. The last 2 times it was the gas cap was not secured properly. I checked this time to make sure it is on tight. I won't be able to get to...


That depends. Usually a check engine light is an indication that something is amiss with one of the sensors in your vehicle. The computer can compensate to some degree for sensor malfunction and sensor drift. Most vehicles have two lights, a check engine light/service engine now light and a check guages light. If you vehicle is equipped with a check guages light this is a warning light for you to check the guages as something is seriously wrong with your vehicle (ie no oil pressure, overheating, low charging condition).

I would monitor your critical guages to make sure they are showing good (oil pressure, temp, and charging system). If the vehicle is running and driving well you should be fine. The check engine light come on in some cars when the car needs an oil change, sometimes it comes on when a sensor is on the fritz, or when you have a missfire situation. It can mean any number of things.

You can also unhook the battery cable for 15-30 seconds and reset the computer. This may clear the light. If the condition that tripped the light is no longer present or it takes a while for the light to come back on I would say your issue is not that serious.

Oil light on when oil is full


a loose connection WILL NOT cause flickering oil light unless your your oil is empty at the same time a connector is loose. This flickering is most likely caused by clogged oil ports or failing oil pump. When this happens there is insufficient oil running through the engine, causing the sensor to activate the light intermittedly. Have this checked immediately to prevent extensive engine damage. Hopefully this helps!!

2002 Toyota highlander passenger brake light not working


RE: 2002 Toyota Highlander 2.4cyl. 4X4 Base Model

I am a Certified Technician and have basic knowledge with electronics in electrical wiring. I searched the web and discovered this is a common problem.

I fixed the problem and it was a simple procedure... The problem is with the reverse light socket at the side with no brake light. This socket functions as a hub to direct current to the brake bulbs.

Remove reverse light socket and re-seat bulb. Check for loose or broken prongs. Replace if necessary.

Swap the reverse socket with the other side.
