The check engine light can mean any number of things. The best way to find out is to go to your local auto parts store and ask them to read the error codes from your car. I know that Autozone does this for free, I don't know if other stores do. The codes will tell what the problem is related to. They can also erase the error codes after the problem is corrected.

there is no silver bullet in these cases. the engine computer needs to be scanned to find where the problem lies, and repairs made based on those findings.

The check engine light comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, a check engine light is lit when there is a problem in the emissions or somthing that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions.

All you have to do is unplug the battery for about 10 minutes. That will reset the system, then drive the car or leave it idle for about 15 minutes. If it comes on again, then you have a problem and you should do a diagnostic test.

Disconnecting the battery cable for a few minutes will reset the check engine light. If the light comes back on you will have to get the issue fixed or it will keep coming on.

Take care of it, keep the oil/other fluids changed regularly, don't hotrod it, and you should be able to get at least 300,000 miles with no problem. Toyota and Honda are the best when it comes to reliability and durability.

If you reset the computer then the Check Engine light comes back on, it just means that the problem still exists. You need to use a code scanner, find out what's wrong, fix the problem properly THEN see if the light comes back on. Often when the problem is properly repaired the light will go off by itself and you don't need to clear the code.

It's not supposed to be on. It comes on when engine reaches certain temperature. But if you see that temperature gauge is going in the red area you need to check the fan relay, its fuse, and the temperature sensor.

It is important to know the causes behind warning lights showing up on a car. The check engine light comes on after a certain speed because there is a problem with fuel, electricity, or oil of the engine after that speed, that is causing issues.

Look in the Toyota Nation Camry forum. I have not looked at the newer Camry oil filter arrangement, but I think that this year uses a cartridge instead of a spin on filter. My 1967 Toyota Corona use a similar arrangement. What goes around comes around.
