engine mounting !!!

1998 Toyota... | Answered on Feb 23, 2010 | 49 views

Should be Headlight Bulb #9006 and will cost about $20 per bulb.

Look on the back of the headlamp remove the plug, remove the boot and you will see a clip holding in the light bulb.

Unhook the clip the bulb will come out with a little force.

Don't touch the glass on the new bulb re-install.

Hope this tip helps.

Why was fuel pump replaced? History? What did you test and what are the results of thoses tests.

The key here is how large are the people being put in the rear seats and what is also in the front seats.

My weight is 330 pounds, I had a 1999 Avalon XLS and I made several trips from Southern Oregon to Seattle Washington ( about 500 miles ) and it was important that I consider the arrangement of all five folks in my car.

Obviously it will float higher with five ladies weighing 125 pounds each, but heading toward the other extreme is where you need to be cautious and calculating.

Best of luck,


ps.. I loved my Avalon, keep the faith with yours.

when you disarm the alarm make sure you hear a beep beep sound twice before you try to start the car.

If the blinker and reverse lights work on the bad side maybe a new socket.

it may be that you your brake fluid is low. the only thing that the brake light indicates is when the parking brake is engaged or when the brake fluid is low. but im about 99% sure its gonna be the brake fluid.

check the oil, take in and have a computer scan done.

You need heavy duty equipment for this. A 10 ton press or a 300 dollar hub shark tool.

As far as going into gear you have an override switch on the console of the trans to push and get out of park. Check your brake lights. If they aren't working the brake light switch controls the shift interlock solenoid. Fis it and you can now shift.

i know on some toyotas, you do not need to remove the door panel just the handle where the switch assembly is located...if the panel around the switches is plastic then pry GENTLY up on the plastic to dislodge it from the door handle and inspect connections there...if everything checks out fine, then check fuses...perhaps this was a problem for so long that the window motor finally blew a fuse. if so replace both fuse and motor...if fuses okay, then with a long screw driver locate any screws under the door handle, bottom of the door panel, mirror panel etc, and remove...then gently pry outwards on door panel until it is released. disconnect your harness at the window motor and hook in a test light and operate the switch..if light illuminates, replace motor..if not, then replace switch or switch panel..which ever/.

Slippiung transmission
1. Check the resistance on the direct clutch speed sensor. 560 -680 ohms should be present.

2. Monitor the wave form pattern on the direct clutch speed sensor at the Engine Control Module (ECM) for a good wave form and no cutouts on the signal.

3. Check the fluid and the transmission condition. Check for slight slippage of the transmission.
