Check Engine Light

If you had your oil changed using a different type of engine oil and your air filter changed why would your check engine light come on and stay on?

It may not have anything to do with the oil. Go to Auto Zone and have the codes read and repaire them. GoodluckJoe

In line filters are directional. check that filter was not installed backwards look for arrow on the side of filter. arrow should point towards engine an away from fuel tank

check that the O ring was replaced when oil filter was changed. id O ring is good and filter is tight, and housing still leaking, replace filter housing

I have a 2003 Highlander. Whenever I get the oil changed, the check engine light comes on within a couple of days. I finally figured out that there is a hose under the air filter case that gets disconnected when the filter is checked. Just reattach the hose and the light will reset after a few restarts of the engine.

You might not have sealed the air box properly, check the oil level and the plug leads also. If the engine sounds strange, bring it to a garage.

A clogged or defective fuel filter will very likely cause a check engine light. If it is suspected, it should be replaced.

User Avatar

Yes it can if it is clogged or has an obstruction it will most certainly prevent fuel from entering the engine. Check that you have fuel before the filter (incoming) and then check the output of fuel from the filter.

Check for a broken motor mount. Also make sure you are using the correct filter and have not changed brands.Check for a broken motor mount. Also make sure you are using the correct filter and have not changed brands.

The Oil is drained by removing a plug in the oil pan, and letting it run into a pan. The filter is screwed to the side of the engine. After the oil is drained and the filter changed, add oil and check frequently to prevent overfilling.

i just changed my batterys out on my truck now my check engine light is on?

Then you may want to have a mechanic check it out.

If the engine is shuttering then it could be the wrong oil filter, if you had just changed your oil then some oil filters work better than others and allow a better flow of oil to the engine. It is a cheap and inexpensive to check and will cost you under $10.00 to buy another oil filter.

None of these maintenance items will trigger the check engine light. The light is on because the computer has detected a problem with the emission system. Have the ECU scanned and retrieve the code. This code will tell you what part is being effected but not necessarily the defective part.

I had the same thing happen after Jiffy Lube changed the air filter. They forgot to plug the vacuum line back into the back of the air filter housing.

User Avatar

Did you reset the light? I don't know what gasket you changed, but undoubtedly that was not the problem. The check engine light comes on when there is a problem with the emissions system.

Anything that could cause a cylinder misfire can cause the check engine light to flash. A restricted fuel filter is one.Anything that could cause a cylinder misfire can cause the check engine light to flash. A restricted fuel filter is one.

B. Change engine oil & filter. 2. Change engine air filter & cabin filter. Check all belts. 5. Replace engine coolant.

it is probably throwing off a sensor, like the mass airflow or map sensor and causing the check engine light to come on

There are pages and pages and items that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked for codes with a scan tool. After repair light can be shut off with scan tool.

Check your filter to make sure it isn't time to change the filter cartrige.

Your engine could be losing power and your check engine light coming on for many reasons. It could be your spark plugs needing to be changed. Your fuel pump or fuel filter could be clogged or starting to wear out, or your engine oil is to low.

There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.
