air comes out cold
Hi. I have a 2006 Toyota Prius. There is a blinking light on the dashboard when the engine is off. The light turns off when the car is started. The light is a car symbol with a vertical line intersecting the roof of the car. The manual indicates this light relates to the electrical system. The manual says to stop the car immedicately if the light comes on during operation of the car, but does not say what to do if the light comes on when the car is turned off. Is this a reminder of a need for regular servicing, or an indication of a problem?
How to adjust idle speed
I went out to do my shopping I could not get my car backed up.I noticed there was red fluid coming from under neath my car.what could it be? I just spent 396.52 2 weeks ago on the barrens in the motor.could this be and error on the maintenance that was done 2 weeks age?
Which fuse box where you plug the cell phone?
It has had oil changes every 3,000 mls but is running louder, not exhaust, but should'nt a 100,000 ml service be more than tire rotation and oil change? What about coolant system and other stuff?
Can low tire pressure light coming on cause the VSC light to come on and flash for three days before it resets it self? Even if you take care of the tire pressure problem immediately? While the light flashes the system is inoperable!
the indicator lamp just came on as i was driving.
My Camry has 93,000 miles on it and I maintain it regularly. I have only been driving it once or twice a week for the past 2 months. Last week the check engine light came on and a diagnostic produced Evap Emission Control codes: P0440, P0441, and P0446. I noticed that my gas cap was very loose (probably worked itself loose in the heat since I've barely been driving it) so I tightened it and ignored the light, figuring that was surely what caused it to come on.
A few days later I started the car again and the clock on my console was totally out, and is still not lit up at all. I ignored this too.
Now, a week later, I go to start it again and it just clicked when I turned the key. I tried to get a jump from someone without initial success, but after he had me shift into drive and pushed my car back and forth a few times it finally started.
The same thing occurred again after I finished my errands and tried to start it to go home. A jump was unsuccessful, but when I waited a minute and tried to start it again, it worked.
Now it is parked again outside my house and I am obviously anticipating a re-occurrence. The connections on the battery look good, and the battery is fairly new. I've had two people tell me the starter needs to be replaced, but it makes me wonder if the clock that stopped working could be a sign that something else is wrong instead?
I am alone in a new city and far from home and my trusted mechanic. Any advise? Thank you in advance.
My Toyota dealer said that my rack & pinion is leaking and that it would cost $1200 to fix it. I can see no indication of any leaks on my garage floor. Could this be a scam?
what causes a green crust to form around the positive and negative wire points?
Air conditioning stopped working, the A/C button began blinking and AC began making very loud noise. The estimate we were given states that the compressor, clutch, receiver driverand expansive value all needed to be replaced and the dash would have to be removed to access necessary parts. Is this correct?
My 1992 Camry dies after running 12 miles. We have replaced the fuel pump, distributor cap and sensors. Any ideas?
Just purchased a used 1997 Toyota Camry, 161K miles. Ran fine for a month but then statred misfiring. After tuneup (plugs, wires and new valve cover gasket) the engine is still misfiring on two cylinders (code verified). New mechanic says it is a blown head gasket and wants 750 for gasket repair and replacement of timing belt and water pump. Does this sound reasonable? Any suggestions?
I have no problem yet.
just had my 90000 service and this is one of 4 services they recommended along with brake fluid flush, power steering flush, fule injection and throttle body service.
my check engine light is on my 2007 camry v6. i went to get it diagnosed and code p-0354 came on. I wanted to know the location of coil D.
At first it would just come on when I started my car up and turn off after about a mile. However now it comes on and will stay on for 20 minutes, every now and they it will just go on and off at random times throughout the trip. It's really driving me crazy. What can I check for myself or should I just take it in?
cost to repair noisy piston
piston is making a lot of noise
why would my car blow oil out of the dipstick
Just back from the brake shop. The noise that just started when I apply the brakes is coming from the front. They say that I have 40% more brake pad, but the pads are wearing uneven. This, they say, has caused the rotors to wear, and that they are too thin to turn. New pads and rotors=$400.00. Anyone know what causes this and is it covered under warranty? Mileage is 58,700.
For maintainence reasons, I'm replacing the timing belt on a 1998 4 cylinder Toyota Camary, and I've heard that on some cars, the water pump should be replaced also. Do I need to have the water pump replaced along with the timing belt for this kind of car? Thanks.

For my 30,000 mile checkup they included all the typical items, and
the estimate was 950. I had no problems with the vehicle.
they explained everything, but I was skeptical. At an earlier visit they estimated it would be maybe 300 or 400. I walked out.
Horrible cheats! They are polite, while they set you up for the
