A mechanic I used to take my car to told me that I didn't have to change the transmission fluid in my 2005 Chevy Cavalier. I have doubts as to whether this is true or not. When it runs, it sounds a bit...

These vehicles do require transmission fluid changes, but at a higher mileage. In fact some models come without a transmission fluid dipstick to check the level. It is recommended that when transmission fluid change service is performed, that a fluid evacuation/fill machine be used, commonly known as a transmission flush.

Had my 2005 Honda Civic in for oil change and 25 point maintenace inspection at the dealer back in Sept 2010 because "maintenance light" on. It is now Nov 10 and "maintenace light" is...

I would never go to a dealer for anything,you just throw away money

I would go down the street to a local repair shop, and have it checked out, for a possible system failure or the reason you have the maint light on

I also never go more than 24 hours,ever,when I have any check lights on,without starting to diagnose the issues,then continue on until I resolve them. Sometimes that takes weeks to find and solve

Criuse control does not work

The car isnt that old, it may be something silly. A blowen fuse, an issue with the brake-light switch, or clutch switch (if applicable). If not you may need to send it in for repair.

I had my 2008 Toyota Avalon in for a regular oil change . The technician forgot to clear the maintenace requied light on the dash .

Set your odometer display to Trip A. Turn the ignition off. Hold the odometer stalk in and turn the car to on.(not start). The odometer display will show -------------, keep holding the stalk in until they the all go away and you see 000000. The Maint light is now reset.

Maintenace required light on how i turned it of after i did the maintenace already and light still on

Hi Guillermothe,

I'm not 100% sure on this, but I know with older vehicles the light needs to be reset. In older vehicles all you have to do is disconnect the battery for 30 minutes, reconnect and you're good to go.

But, you're driving a newer vehicle, this may effect your car alarm, or even your radio.

Hope I've helped, don't forget to rate.

Maintenace light blinks when car turns on

I'm not quite sure on a Toyota, But on a Acura it just meant that by mileage your getting close for your 7500 mile service. then when the light stays on that means your due for the service. also check your owners manuel.
