I have x reg toyota corolla there is an orange light on the dashboad that looks like a car with two diagonal lines what ist it or what should I do


This yellow sign is called Malfunction Engine Light (MIL), Engine Light Soon or Check Engine Light (CEL). This light is provided to let the driver know that something has happened wrong with any of the sensors and needs to visit garage to diagnose the problem.
You should get it checked from any of the workshops ASAP.
After the light comes on, the engine runs in fail safe mode, the emission system is disabled which may result in more fuel consumption, poor drive ability and unstable engine rpm.

Emission workshop warning light


You need the OBD codes checked to be certain of the problem. If engine is running ok with the light on, it may well be an oxygen sensor problem.

Emmissions light has come on?


you need to get it scanned, i assume "emissions light" is your check engine light, or the "visit emissions workshop" message, which means, go to a shop and get it checked. The coolant disappearing means you probably have a leak. Another reason to check it,

VW Passat 2001: Exhaust emission warning lamp flashing. Manual says 'blinks if the catalyst can be damaged by misfires'. Any suggestions?


"Check engine light" EMISSIONS WORKSHOP! Do you want to shut it off??? After reading all of the negative comments and how much money Passat owners have spent due to this manufacturer's problem, I am going to save the day and save you $$$ by showing you how to "reset" the diagnostic computer which makes the "emissions workshop-check engine light come on! (This is the same thing the VW dealer will charge you hundreds of dollars to do.) To turn off the "Check Engine" (Emissions Workshop) light, simply follow these 5 basic steps:
1. Pop open the hood.
2. Insert the key in the ignition and turn without starting the engine until all of the dash indicators light and warning tones sound.
3. With the key still in the ignition, use a 10mm wrench or socket to loosen and completely disconnect the negative (-) battery cable from the battery. Wait about 60 seconds before reconnecting.
4. Re-connect and tighten the negative (-) cable to the battery and close the hood.
5. Start the engine. THE "CHECK ENGINE" LIGHT HAS GONE OUT!
If the light stays on, then there really is a problem. If it has turned off, be glad, but don't be surprised to see it come on again in a few weeks. If it comes on again, simply follow steps 1-5. Remember... This quick repair is for those who just can't stand looking at this light or afford to visit VW every time this light comes on. If you feel the need to service the vehicle, service the vehicle. I hope this has made your "NIGHTMARE" a little easier!!!

need a garage that has vag com ,the tool that talks to the computer. It most likely needs to be just reset. It is an emmisions thing that pops up to get yo to get your emmisions parts checked. Or there could be something wrong.
