2008 Scion tC Engine Q&A

  • Why does the check engine light come on when I start my tC? It's okay if your check engine light comes on when you first start your vehicle. 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.
  • Why does my Scion engine sound different? Strange engine sounds can be a sign something’s off in your Scion tC. Tapping or knocking could mean you need an oil change. 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, revving the engine while still in Park, or slamming the gas pedal while the engine is still cold. Steer clear of these habits to help protect engine performance and efficiency.
  • Can I add water to my Scion tC radiator? While it’s not recommended, you can use water in your tC radiator in emergencies. Normally, you should only use a 50/50 mix of coolant and water or a pre-mixed coolant. However, if you are completely out of coolant and must continue driving, it’s better to have water in your coolant reservoir 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.
