Question. I am planning to buy Scion XB 2008 but I am worrying about the oil change. I have an Accord and I always change oil myself by driving up a ramp. Scion XB, on the other hand seems to have a low bottom. If I drive the XB on the ramp, could the front or back touch the ground before the front tire reaching the top of the ramp? How did you lift the card. My ramps are the usual one bought from Walmart.
#134 of 157 Fuel Injector Cleaning (Scion xB 2004)
Jul 16, 2007 (7:04 am)
I have a Scion xB 2004, and I'm wondering what's the best way to clean its fuel injectors.
1. Do fuel injector cleaning additives work? If so, which is the best?
2. Or is it best to have them cleaned by other means? I'm pretty handy and would like to do it myself if possible.

how do you shut off the maint. light

Push the button (in the center at the clock) and turn the key on. Then let it count down. Stop on the interval that you liked to be warned. The interval is from 1000 to 5000.
I did mine two weeks ago, so I am going from memory.

#139 of 157 Any more bad ignition coils out there?
Dec 05, 2007 (3:50 pm)
I don't own the XB, but deliver for a florist. She bought the new 2006 two years ago last month. I've probably put over half those miles on myself.
It now has 54,000 miles on it. It hadn't needed anything but normal maintenance till now, but the check engine light came on the other day. The problem, the ignition coil. Has anyone else experienced that problem?
I own a Maxima that had that problem a couple of years ago. At that time I read of Volkswagon experiencing the same problem. Seems to be a fairly common - though expensive problem.

One day I went to my dealer...
I turned off the "Main Req." light before and was 28,xxx miles. They tried offered to do the 30k check up and I declined due to not having the money. I promised to come back next oil change to do it. My tech pulled me to the side and lectured me about improper maintenance (tires, oil changes.) Took it personal and never came back. Around that time, my personal finances were out of control so I knew my money was serious problem with maintaining this wonderful car. More thought I put into it...Its all my fault no matter what not Tom the Tech!
So I decided to keep doing proper oil changes while holding back on new tires. Since I can't do the Toyota maintenance schedule least do that. People on other sites kept telling me to switch to Synthetic so I did. I use Mobil 1 5W-30; car seems to enjoy it better. Runs much smoother and starts up with ease even in 10 degrees weather.
About few weeks ago, my "Brake" light kept going on and off. Look under the hood, saw brake fluid is low. And Wisconsin winter came long within that same week...spent the 500.00 for new tires and kept driving on the brake light. I was told to take it back to the dealer and let them look at them. Made the appointment; they couldn't fit me in until the 28th cause I personally like waiting for the car being night-shift person. So I asked for a Friday. Since I'm behind all the maintenance they can tell me right there if something else went wrong and I can "Okay" more work.
Here's the question: since you have the scoop....
I have my employer's bonus around that time. Should cover everything; I hope. But I told my family I would use the money to payoff my evil debts (credit cards.) I personally believe I should use the money to put the car back on track since I am on 72 month loan and my credit isn't too nice like when I bought the car. So I feel like I have no choice to do it. Is this wrong? Or is this the right choice? My family feels that I will be selfish. I can payoff these debts with ease specially since I'm not stressing out about my car. I know if I do this...I'll be happy and willing to pay these bills in full.
#141 of 157 Is Scion xB big enough?
Dec 25, 2007 (5:17 pm)
Hope this is the right place to ask the question.
I wonder if xB's rear seats are big enough for 2 adults (5'1~5'3, 95~105lb) + 1 car seat. Any owner can share some experiences with me?
Jan 02, 2008 (1:34 am)
That would work in mine. The new one is just bigger.
I actually saw three baby seats in the back of an 06 one time.
