Asked by Mar 27, 2016 at 12:55 AM about the 2006 Toyota 4Runner Limited V6 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2006 4Runner - Limited 4wd -Automatic  - 169,000

Issue - the following indicator lights come on and go off intermittently.
check engine /vsc trac/ vac off/ slip indicator

The majority of the time they stay off.  I notice that they come on after
driving for more than 45 minutes or if I am in stop and go traffic.  They also
have come on after an oil change, and following the shifting into 4 Low and
4 High.  The only noticeable difference in the function of the vehicle is that
the idle seems to slow down when I am at a full stop at a light.

Actions Taken by Owner
Took it to AutoZone after the last time the light came on and had it tested.
The following code was generated.
P0018 - Crankshaft Position/ Camshaft Position/ Correlation- Bank 2 /
Sensor A
Took it to Tim’s Toy Shop (Toyota Specialist- Longmont Co.)  Tim suggested
that it was likely a sensor, but that it would be difficult to id which sensor
specifically.  He added engine cleaner, ran it for 20 minutes and replaced the
oil. The light went off and did not come back on for a number of months.

I had the oil changed at Grease Monkey.  As soon as I pulled out and started
driving, the indicator light came on again.  

I added engine cleaner and ran for 20 minutes.  I purchased Mobil 1 Oil and
Mobil 1 Filter and replaced did the change myself with the help of a
friend/local mechanic.  

The light stayed off for quite a while.  

I drive with UBER. The next time the light came on was after 4 hours of
continuous driving in Denver. I drove it home and it went off the next day
when I started it.

I recently started the car after a heavy snow. I shifted into 4 low and drove a
short distance before the 4 lights came on again.
