I have a 2000 Toyota Avalon with a dash light on of a symbol of a car that shows lights on on the back of the car? What does this mean?!
I'm wondering if a light was left on or something. I drove it on Saturday and it was fine. This morning leaving for work, nothing.
Is there an easier way to replace the in cabin air filter on my 2000 Toyota Avalon without taking the glove box out and disconnecting the air bag?!

Why does my automatic transmission downshift instead of "coasting" when there is no demand for power as my foot is lifted from the accelerator? The transmission will down shift at specific speeds as the car begins to gradually slow causing an increase in RPMs on the tach, and a "noticeable decrease" in speed. It is as if downshifting to use "engine braking" to slow the car down. The transmission can be felt downshifting at approximately 46mph with a very slight increase in engine rpm; more noticeable at approximately 37mph causing a 250 rpm change; again at approximately 30mph. At about 24mph, as the car slows due to the braking action, the transmission seems to upshift, releasing the sensation of "engine braking" and feels like the car is "coasting". There have been times when going between 25-30mph that the transmission seems to "hunt" for a gear to be in creating a "brake-coast-brake-coast" sensation.
The issue has been reported to the dealer and they were "not able to duplicate". At my request the transmission was "reset" and the issue remains.
I have read that another Toyota model, as well as some other makes have had similar issues.The Toyota issue was evidently caused by a control module adjustment.
I read that an engine or transmission control module could be an issue.
The car is always driven in the "normal" transmission mode and upshifts very smoothly.
I have access to three other cars and have not experienced this issue. I had a job that required me to drive 70-80K miles a year in numerous cars and I never experienced this.
The sensations are felt more when the car is warmed up after 1.5 miles. I am the only driver.
No signs at all. and i just changed the oil with 5 litres of toyota oil and oil filter barely 48 hrs ago. No leakage of oil under the engine.
I noticed the oil was almost dry as the time the engine stopped on highway..
i thought the oil did not guage well and I added more 4 litres of toyota oil to it. Still it did not guage.
in total, i have added 9 litres of oil.
the engine did not start.
Please what could be the problem?
