I just had all fluids replaced at my local dealer. On the

Customer Question

I just had all fluids replaced at my local dealer. On the way home the check engine, VSC , track off. And A/T oil lights came on. It seemed to have lost some power so I pulled over and stopped. The engine was making a dieseling sound and it stalled. There was also steam coming from the engine compartment. The temperature gauge was normal as was the oil pressure gauge. There was fluid thrown around by the fan and the radiator was not full. Any ideas?
JA: How many miles are on the car? Have any trouble codes popped up?
Customer: 128000 miles. The local Toyota dealer changed all fluids just today and checked codes. The receipt shows that they didn't do the radiator fluid. Also they cleaned the engine compartment.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: No, I am mechanically capable but on newer vehicles I like to have the professionals do the work. So that I can complain to them when something like this happens.
JA: OK! The Toyota Mechanic will help you with the diagnostics so you are sure to get this fixed right. Is there anything else the Toyota Mechanic should be aware of about your Toyota?
Customer: No I think I have described in detail what happened today, it's just driving me nuts because I want to know what happened.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Toyota Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
