Take to a garage to lift it up and have a better view on what is leaking. An old gasket may still be on the oil filter base.

You need a scan tool to retreive the diagnostic trouble code in the VSC system

On these cars and Toyotas also, if the engine computer sees an emissions problem, it will illuminate all of these lights. As long as the check engine light isn't flashing and it's not running funny, you should be ok to finish your trip. Keep in mind the traction control may not work if you were to get into a situation where it could be helpful. Recommend checking the gas cap to be sure it is tight, it should click 3 times minimum.

Why would you replace a gas cap?
You were told, two EVAP Codes ,and what they were.
Have the vehicle smoke tested and repaired. You have two different size leaks,in that system.

I have a 05 Scion XB W/215000 mi My vsc ck eng light go on all the time. The dealer told me it was a little dirt speck of dirt in the timing gear and it would cost almost a thousand dollars to fix it. So I just disconnect the neg battery cable for 2 minutes and reconnect. The light stays out for about 4-6 months. when it comes on again I just repeat the steps.

1. VSC means Vehicle Stability Control.

2. TRAC Off means Traction Controln is off

3. Check simply indicates that there is an issue being communicated from the onboard computer.

Take the car for a scan dear.

i think 80 $ is very genuine and resonable cost for checking.

2005 Scion xB | Answered on Sep 29, 2018


I took mine to the dealer to find out why the VSC, Trac off, and check engine lights are on. They said it is the camshaft position sensor, it retards the timing, and causes it to lose power when climbing. Also, 1 of every 30 to 50 scions have this problem. Sounds like it should be recalled for this. The cost of replacement is about $500 bucks. Get your dry belts and valve cover gaskets changed at the same time to avoid labor charges later. I couldn't believe the dealer charges $89 bucks an hour for labor these days, Rediculous. At least it comes with a a 12 month unlimited mileage warrenty.

only possible if the steering wheel bag sensor is at fault
If it is a passenger bag , would not be affected
run the fault codes to determine the exact fault area /sensor
