2006 Scion tC Engine Q&A

  • Why does the check engine light come on when I start my tC? It’s usually normal for your check engine light to turn on upon ignition. This is just your tC testing its circuits. The dash light shouldn't stay on. If it does, you might want to bring your vehicle in for service.
  • Are Scion tC engine noises bad? Unusual noises can signal a problem with your Scion tC engine. Knocking or tapping could be a symptom of low oil. Whistling sounds could mean you have an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing may be caused by a loose fan belt, and grinding might be coming from the brakes, not the engine.
  • What could damage my Scion tC engine? Certain driving habits can hurt your engine. These habits include driving on an empty fuel tank, flooring the gas pedal while the car is in Park, or pushing 'the pedal to the metal' before the engine has warmed up. Protect your engine’s performance and efficiency by distancing yourself from these habits.
  • Can I use water in my Scion tC radiator? An emergency is the only time you should consider putting water in your radiator. Outside of that, it’s recommended you use a pre-mixed coolant or a 50/50 blend of water and coolant. However, if you need to continue driving your tC when you’re out of coolant, having water in the coolant reservoir is better than nothing.
  • What can cause the engine in my tC to suddenly stop? Reasons your tC car engine may suddenly stop include engine overheating, electrical troubles, mechanical issues, ignition system problems, faulty sensors, and low fuel.
