ok iv had the smae problem im my 94 replace the therostat... cant go wrong with it only like 4 bucks and easy to install.. dont go to a mechanic! wanted 80 bucks only had to undo 2 lug nuts and placed it in poped it on and this is weird but for some reason idk y but the car will over heat a few times after words but it will stop trust me i had a friend tell me the same thing and i thought it was bull hes was being honest.. also could be the engine coil or distrubuter cap... does the car have a hard time starting up in the rain or after it rains? the termosate controls the fans... if the engine over heats let me remind u there are no heat sensers in the engine and if it gets too hot it can frie the coils... happened to me... but anyways replace the termostat... i promise a great improvment =D any more questions email me at

The light is on usually because of damaged wiring or one of abs sensors is not working properly.

Bad bulbs can be the cause of your reverse lights not working on your 1999 Toyota Tacoma. A problem with the reverse switch or bad wires can also be the cause of your reverse lights not working.

If the A/C is not working on a 2000 Toyota Echo, the pump may need to be recharged. It is also possible that the belt for this is broken or the thermostat is sticking.

If it sputters under drivers seat only aT 30 mph or over, it may be not so much speed but wind related-chk for loose undercarrage flap, exhaust system or anything directly under car for loosness-especially exhaust shields.
