If all fluids and gages are ok, everything is probably ok. Reset the computer by taking off one battery terminal for about 5 minutes.

Smoke coming from the hood check engine light


Someone else's code may not help you as the light could come on for a number of reasons. Smoke under your hood could be due to a leak or leaks such as oil, coolant, power steering fluid and so on and as the engine gets hot the fluids will burn off on the hot engine or exhaust causing it to smoke. The smell when you turn the heat on could be because your heater core is leaking. This would be accompanied with low coolant levels, overheating and low heat especially at idle also the carpet may be wet. If your vehicle is equipped with a cabin air filter the smell could also come from there as leaves and other debris and sometimes even rodents can get in there. Also if you don't allow you evaporator to dry by shutting off the ac but letting the fan run for a couple of minutes the water on the evaporator can cause mold and mildew to grow giving you a funny smell as well. Hope this helps.

Ruled out how?

You still have codes for something

Changing trans fluid only gives you
new fluid,not a fix for anything,just
disapates heat better with new fluid

The codes are for torque converter clutch,so why not
diagnose the TCC Solenoid

http://www.ehow.com/how_6038371_retrieve-1990-toyota-scan-tool.html are instructions for pulling the error codes for 1990 - 1995 Toyotas.

Without the error codes to guide you, you could throw a lot of money at fixing something and still not be fixing the problem. Suggest you pull the errors codes and then you will have a place to start troubleshooting the problem.

The o/d light flashes and the check engine light is on. The car has had no other problems, just started on Saturday. What could it be? My mechanic cleared the computer but suggested that I take it to a...


The transmission in your car is a GF4A-EL. The cooling capacity is weak. Many owners have installed auxillary coolers. Fluid should be changed every 2 yrs. or 30,000 miles. If you take your car to Advanced Auto or Autozone they will, for free, identify what code or codes are causing the check engine light to come on. More than likely you will have a P code that is pointing at the transmission. Any additional information is always usefull. Perhaps the transmission is overheating; If you plan on keeping the car I would suggest that you have an auxillary cooler installed. Also have the fluid changed. Let me know how you make out. saailer@att.net

2001 aurora engine heats up when not moving down


Likely the fan(s) not turning on when engine gets hot. Is the check engine light on? Read the code(s) and repair as needed. Check (when cold) the fan(s) for free turning--if seem bound or hard to turn, replace the ailing fan. Check the radiator and reservoir fluid level. Watch the fans as the engine heats up. Feel the radiator area where the upper engine hose connects. It will suddenly turn hot when the thermostat opens. The fan assembly should activate somewhat after. Hopefully, the engine code recognized a defective temp sensor and was replaced.

Fixed check engine trouble code but light with same code comes on


Your transmission problem could be related to the TPS sensor. The TPS sensor indicated to the PCM when and what gear the transmission should be in. As for the Lucas and other additives to the transmission may be doing it more harm then good, As the transmission oil is thicker, the transmission line pressure increases. The PCM try's to compensate for that by letting the converter lock up clutch to slip and the fluid retention in the solenoid to change gears stick causing it to shudder between gear shifts. Recap, Check the TPS sensor readings and the Wire Harness. Look for loose connections and corrosion that may not be giving the proper readings to the ECM. Rescan the car for any DTC codes and most transmission chop can do that for you if your going to get it serviced there anyways. Have the transmission fluid flushed and filter changed, and have them do a transmission line pressure checked, there are additives out there to keep the fluid from foaming which is ok, but changing the fluid's weigh can cause transmission failure. Good luck and hope this helps and keep me posted, be glad to help.
