I believe I can use a wire across two terminals on the Diagnostic box un der the hood , then turn on the ignition and count the flashes on the engine light , I would like to know which two terminals .

My car hasn't had a service in quite awhile and is running very poorly.Aside from replacing a couple of sensors and the EGR valve,absolutely (besides oil changes)nothing has been done.Due to my negligence,I'm considering selling as is and buying another car.I feel like a traitor because this car has been nothing but good to me.I know this isn't very specific.Its just running BAD!!

what could have broken


I have a 1996 Toyota Avalon XLS and it has a V6 in it. It has 240,456 miles on it. I am the third owner. The tranny fluid/screen has never been replaced. It is now a real dark red/brown. It does shift just a little late. If there any expect Toyota tranny experts out there. Or others with a view I would like to here from you to. What would you do if this was your car. In closing. I do have enough money aside to get a newer car.

When I had oil changed on 6/4/15 service man asked me if I had changed my timing belt, it was cahnged in 2009 alon w/ water pump as preventitve measur. I was told the bearing in water pump bad and caused the timing belt to become frayed and makeing sqeeking noises. They replaced my spark plugs because they had carbon on them? now cannot get car started? talking about replalcing 12 valve, when they said ONE may have gotten bent? I am not at a Toyota dealer because I only have a CC for Firestone and at the limit. I need help, asap. I am worn out.
They are suppose to look at it again Mon 7/6/15 and I have to do something.
Thanking you in advance with any advice.

All but the driver's side door lock quit working either by pushing the button or using the remote. I was told it was the ECU and needed to be replaced. How difficult is it to do it yourself? It looks pretty easy in how to manuals. Also how much should it cost to have someone else do it? Or is this not likely the cause of this problem?
