ve had this tc 2000 for a year and a half we put a new head last summer
Ive drove from s.f. To Bakersfield mostly flat . She hasnr been running hot although the temp gauge is up and down but always within running temp.
No gas in the oil. The sensor on the air cleaner says it's fine and it wasclean when we pulled it less than a thousand miles ago . The oil is dirty lookingshe has 2300,000 miles on her. The coolant is brand new and the level is fine. The light that is flickering and progressively getting worse is the only light I cant find in the manual and reads "engine warning" and is the light that comes on when I turn the key and goes off after starting.

x2 on it being a turbo problem

the turbo is the first thing in line after the aircleaner, oil coming out there suggests the turbo as the culprit.

i'm just re-assembling my turbo now. i think you'd have to remove the entire exhaust manifold to access the turbo, just to check it out.

After deducing all possible outcomes I taped over the light and drove iver the grapevine .
Oil pressure and tempurature stayed perfect all the way to Palm springs. Just woke up east bound and down tuscon gem faire here we come. Thank you everone for there help god bless you folks and I hope I dont have any more threads on this trip. We're (me and my 4 year old) are going to tuscon then up to colorado and when things thaw out bak to s.f.

If it truly is a 6bt all mechanical there are no codes to pull.

The warning light you see is either for low oil pressure, low engine coolant, or high coolant temp.

...pushing the old girl a bit much- keep the rpm's around 2000 - fire=bad.

Gem fair is awesome- is getting HUGE and sprawling. Love Tucson. Never shoulda sold my house there.

Could also be water in fuel sensor as well. I'd check that as well because it's something that you might have forgotten.

The light is more of a check everything over light and not your stereotypical check engine light with codes.
