Scion Scheduled Maintenance Questions and Answers
I bought the car with 400,000 miles on it. (a good looking car) no dents scratches. Interior looks good also. My daughter drove the car 45 min to Chicago and back. Now the maintenance reqd light is coming on. Also check engine light comes on. What are the possible problems and estimate?
Not too long ago a rattle developed in the engine. I purchased a mechanics stethoscope and I think I have isolated the rattle as coming from the component just under the alternator. I have purchased a Scion xb maintenance manual, but it does not come in until tomorrow. Thanks
