Answers :

Make sure the gas cap is there and is fully tightened (it will click), a loss or missing cap will turn the check eng light on.

Jeep Liberty 2006 - Check engine light flashes when starting and then stays on solid after gaining some speed. When the engine is off for a period of time, like overnight, it starts normally and the check engine light does not flash. However, if the engine is off for a short period of time the check engine light flashes and then remains on. Also, it does not happen every time but about half the time. When this happens the engine hesitates and shakes until the check engine lights stops flashing.

I have a 1996 Isuzu Trooper. The check engine light stays on. I had to replace the EGR valve for that particular error code. Now I still have a check engine light staying on with some kind of vehicle leveling code. Where is the sensor located on the vehicle and/or how do I get the check engine light to go off?

I was driving my 2000 Honda Civic to work and all was well with it. However, as I started it up to drive home, the dreaded Check Engine light came on. I bought a new O2 sensor, and installed it, but the check engine light stayed on. I took the battery off, let it stay off for a minute, and then put it back on. I restarted the car, the light went away, I drove for an hour, and the light stayed off. However, I turned my car on this morning, and lo-and-behold the light came back on. In additio

Intermittent check engine light (on then off) for short duration, no code registers, RPMs drop down & car loses power - all synched to the duration of the check engine light. Most times check engine light goes off and car runs normally. On some occurrences, check engine light stays longer and the car dies.

Two-fold problem: (1) Check engine light would come on when I was low on fuel. After refueling, it would go away. Eventually it came on and stayed on so I took it to the shop. They said it needed an emission vapor canister. However, after that day the check engine light didn't come on for months so I didn't get the canister. Eventually check engine came back on, I took the car in and got the new vapor canister ($350). Three weeks later the check engine light was back on when I was low on

Loyale No.1 Engine check light is staying on after replacement of oil sending unit (oil gauge still doesn't show pressure), EGR value, and the oil fill cap.

I have a 97 wrangler 2.5. Check engine light is on, running lean, loss of power and high fuel consumption. I have replaced the o2 sensors, reset check engine code. light stays off and engine runs great for a couple of days and then goes right back to running poorly / check engine light back on. I know its not the o2 sensors...what else could it be?


Something odd about what you posted. An engine that is running lean shouldn't be using a lot of fuel. Lean is when there isn't enough fuel going into the engine. Two other sensors that regulate fuel flow are the map sensor and throttle position sens ... 1997 Jeep Wrangler

My son just purchased a 2006 GMC Envoy and Check Engine Light kept going on. Dealer said it is due to Secondary Injection Pump (Code P0410),which my son paid them to replace.
