I had a 1994 Gmc truck that did that, turns out speakers had gone out and the other side was about to give, pull one of your speakers out from the side that dont work and wire up a AAA battery to see if it makes a sound when you connect the battery to the neg and pos side.

A "Timing Chain" should last the life of the engine, as long as you change oil according your car makers recommendations. A "Timing Belt" is another story they are usually good for about 80,000 to 100,000 miles.

Seems like a bad battery terminal connection to me, try having someone hold the terminals while you crank it. Check where the wires bolt onto the terminals too. Could also be a fault in the ignition switch.

If you mean the shaft that runs the accessories in the front causing a chattering noise, No, you need to loosen the mounts that hold the whole front assembly in place to remove the coupling though.
If you mean the rear driveshaft, then yes, Lift the vehicle, select neutral gear, apply the handbrake and mark the driveshaft at the rear where the driveshaft connects to the differential so it can be re fitted in the same position. Loosen the bolts one by one, releasing the handbrake to turn the driveshaft around to get to the next bolt. Take note of which way around the bolts are as this is important for the strength of the bolts in relation to the sheering action of the driveshaft.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Have you checked the TCM (transmission control module)? If the TCM is faulty the car may stall, as a first course of action please replace the TCM and there's a big possibility that it will be resolved.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

most of these models have 2 oil lights.The red one is oil pressure,if flashing or on when engine is running,it is usually serious.check oil level,but usually caused by blocked pickup screen(a common toyota fault) when services aren't done.The orange oil light is tripped by an oil level sensor on the side of the sump when the oil level is low.If the oil level is ok,note this is a common fault especially if oil changes have been missed,and/or a petrol engine oil used and sludge builds up,sometimes using an additive for flushing prior to oil change can help,but may not work on 1st oil change.

make sure you check all fuzes it could be a bad fuze and it also can be one of your censers most of the time its a censer on that code.

The motor can be removed by itself. It will have three bolts that hold it on. Once you take the three bolts out the motor and the gear box will come off. As far as the wipers go the wiper will have a small clip where it attatches to the wiper linkage. This clip slides over and the wiper arm will come off.

Don't take any more chances. Have your oil pressure tested with a manual gauge! NOW! It may be a faulty pressure sending unit, or it may be any one of a hundred things that will ruin your engine and your whole month. Please do not risk that! Call a local repair facility, and ask their advise before you drive any more!

I don't understand why the timing belt was replaced for a heater problem. Is the car running rough or missing badly? Have you actually checked the oil or just relying on the oil level light. Check the oil and look for signs of water in the oil. If the oil doesn't show signs of water, refill the radiator with antifreeze and bring the oil level up to the full mark. Run the engine until it gets hot. Turn the engine off and let it cool enough so that you can remove the radiator cap. If the radiator is empty again, there must be leak somewhere. If you can't find a leak then it may be going inside the engine. If that is the case then the engine should be running very rough. Let me know what you find.

normaly that would be true, except our vans have an extra oil resivewar (sorry i cant spell) under the hood, its on the passenger side of mine(battery and air filter on driver side). What it does is dump more oil into your pan if level gets old. also cycles oil from pan to res back to pan, lessens oil change visits.

the last year, your blower resistor has been bad, now your motor is bad. rap on the motor and see if it start to run, if so, replace the motor and the resistor.
