The engine coded P0306, which I was told is possibly a bad plug or coil on an intermittent #6 cylinder. Where should I start? Change the Plug? If I fix the check engine will it clear the VSC lights?

Could not find fuse for compressor.

What is making the confiscation not leave the vehicle

my oil was low, my husband had a hard time determining when it reached the right capacity. I'm afraid he added too much (1 1/2 qts) Could this have cause it to start shimmying slightly at traffic lights when it never did before.

Car will turnover fine, but will not start.

I have driven for about 2500 miles before I noticed that my transmission oil was low. I could smell the burning oil a few times over that time. But why didn't the A/T oil temp light go on? I know the light works.

I own 2004 4runner. My question is will the A/T oil temp light go on in the case where my transmission oil was 2 inch below cold? I assume that because of the low fluid my transmission would be overheating.

Recently I have my drive shaft boots replaced, the mechanic forgot to refill the trans oil. I realized that after driving the car for 2500 miles. Many times when it was warmer I would smell burnt plastic and strong heat coming from the car. I finally checked the transmission oil and it was about two inch below the cold mark when the oil is hot. The tran oil had dark and had little burnt smell. I just had the trans oil replaced and everything is running normal for now. My question, is my transmission shot? And how come the A/T oil temp light never turned on during the 2500 miles that I was drive on low oil?

My son's 4runner has some electrical issues going on, check engine light, maintenance light, Trac control light, jumps from FM to AM, spits and sputters when 1st cranking, temp goes all the way hot, then back down.O2 sensor maybe? Thanks

My 4 runner is a 2004 v8 engine with all time 4wd. I currently have the same issue as others have posted with VSC and check engine lights. Im not sure if these problems are related? However, when I accelerate I hear the engine bogging down and also when I let off the accelerator by speed is significantly decreased at a rapid pace. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

what do I do to permanently stop Check engine, Vsc Trac & Vsc Off light from constantly showing, while I have already tried the alternative 'repair advised' & it came back.

what is the cause of my car swerving right each time I step on my brake?.
