It may sound like the noise the rear wiper washer makes when it has not been used for awhile. It's not the normal high-pitched squeak when brakes need to be replaced. Sometimes the noise occurs while driving on uneven roads. It's sporadic, usually when the a/c is on; in all types of weather - sunny, rainy. Sometimes it appears after driving in rush-hour traffic for 30+ minutes, other times it appears in a few minutes when driving. Unfortunately I am unable to duplicate the noise for a mechanic to hear.

I've driven hwy, street & varied my starts & stops over 3 weeks but these monitors simply won't re-set. I 're-booted' by removing the battery cables so I realize I'm starting over but I had to try the 're-boot' as nothing else was working to re-set the monitors which my mechanic checked for me every other day. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.Thank you ;-D

Abs light on

Loud clunk going into reverse. Seems to slip in forward on occassion. Problem is intermittent so hard to diagnose.

after replacing headlamp i turned lights on and new light was not working right. i put that light in the good side to make sure it was good, it was so i put second good light in the one that went out. it would barely come on, i tested the voltage on the bad side and when i stuck point in hole 1 of three the other side headlight came on, i put new bulb back in and reattached it, i also put the good side back, turned on lights and both sides barley work, when i hit the brights the side that was good comes on bright and the one that had gone out does not power on at all. also i unplugged the big connector to the brakes to replaceheadlight, and put it back in now my brakes make an awful noise like abs is off could these two be releated, it was raining a little bit and there was heavy moisture in the air, i checked all fuses, and even put scan tool obd reader on car, no electrical problems showed up, the abs test did say master cylinder main control not working but i already figured that out. is there something i need to reset when unplugging that main connector and with my headlights could the fact i touched the bulbs numerous times and it weas raining have screwred the lights up or could i have blown a relay not a fuse.

Wet weather seems to increase fequency. I must disconnect battery to reset. Toyota dealership says I need charcoal canister. codes p043f, p4201,p2419, come up when they tested.

My car stalled and would not restart because timing belt broke. Is my engine is damaged?

Manual transmission

Sometimes I can't move the gearshaft into 2nd, and it feels like a piece of rubber is blocking it. Sometimes it's other gears, although it still goes into gear. Sometimes it goes right in with a "chunk."

This problem just started. It acts as if the battery or alternator is the problem. A friend hooked up his OBD and no codes. He Also used voltage meter on battery and alternator and said both are good. What else would be the problem?

it just happened was working fine i had a transmission pan gasket repaired and 4x light and car went in and out or on and off fine . until it stopped and these two lughts came on

it happens every time i drive without Ac

CD stopped working. I have new unit. What do I do to replace the old one?

The car starts, and idles, will drive at idle speed. No fuel disruptions, bad timing, misses nothing. But will not move any faster when pressing on gas. All the way to

I like to perform my own maintenance and repairs but need accurate information to do this.

Engine light code P1130 .

Dash light does not work when night headlights are on. Will light up momentarilly when starting. Gas gage stays on empty even when full. Out of gas symbol stays on all the time when vehicle is running.

Brake lights are staying on after I turn off car.

Especially happens when wet out. Doesn't happen most of the time. But quite often.

Any ideas?

I there a way to increase the contrast on the camera?

I would like to know how to get my two back seats out. They are suppose to come out without any screw drivers or any other tool.

Stalls any time after driving 20 minutes. Car restarts from 5 minutes to an hour after sitting. Distributor, coil, fuel pump recently replaced. Runs well while running

Also whAt dose the ECT switch do?

The engine won't not cranking. The dash board shows all the symbols but it won't crank

cleared the code 2 times and put some injector cleaner in tank of gas and now its mis firing rough idle and more gas usage
