Answers :

The check engine light is on because there is something wrong with your vehicle, possibly a bad sensor. You will have to have the engine codes read to know what's wrong. Most larger auto parts chain stores will read the codes for free and tell you what's wrong. You can then fix it yourself or take it to a mechanic shop for repairs.
COULD BE EVAP LEAK - CYLINDER MISFIRE OR PCM FAULT ITSELF. HIGH OR LOW BATTERY VOLTAGE LIKE I SEEN CAR ALTERNATOR GO BAD ONLY PUT OUT 11.5 VOLTS OR 16 VOLTS THAT WILL CAUSE PCM PROBLEM.TAKE VECHICLE TO AUTO ZONE OR ADVANCE AUTO PARTS OR ANY AUTO PARTS STORES IN YOUR TOWN OR CITY THEY WILL SCAN VECHICLE FREE TELL YOU YOUR TROUBLE CODE.

I have a 1999 Dodge Stratus and when the car comes to a complete stop after its been warmed up, the oil light comes on. This goes away as soon as I step on the gas. I've checked the oil and there is a sufficient amount. Also, the check engine light is on for an emissions system failure. What is causing the oil light to come on and could the oil issue cause the check engine light to come on?


The oil pump may be going out - the light indicates the pressure is below the proper level and when you step on the gas it spins faster/raises the pressure back up to an acceptable level.\015\012\015\012This is something to get checked RI ... 1999 Dodge Stratus

Hi my I have a toyota 4-runner 1998, and I noticed that my check engine light turns on after a 50+ mile long drive. So when I pull over and turn off the engine for about 15 minutes, the check engine light turns off. So I had continue to drive for an additional 25 miles and the light turns on again. Pulled over and turned off my engine and it turned off again. Any idea what might be causing the check engine light to turn on or off? Also had the engine replaced 4 years ago and the performanc

I have the same problem with my 2000 v70 glt a not only does the break, abs, and check engine lights come on and the speedometer and odometer don't work but the arrow starts flashing and the vehicle seems to start in high gear! Which of the many speed sensors should i check?


The most common problem is with the ABS control unit. You will most likely have to replace it. It is located under the brake hydraulic unit (not the master cylinder). This part can be purchaced from a Volvo dealer, or sent to one of the many places t ... 1999 Volvo V70

Couple of questions on a 1997 4 cyl Ford ranger; engine light stays on all the time. Sometimes its blinking nut mainly just stays lit. In addition the O/D off light comes on to let me know its off for no apparent reason. And last yesterday I checked the "fluids" as its running sluggish and the container that holds the radiator fluid was empty-what caused this? Its been 0-32 degrees out. thank you for your help.


First off, the check engine light. If it's flashing, that indicates the engine is misfiring. You should immediately pull over and shut it off - driving while misfiring can cause serious damage. The fact that it stays lit indicates that you have store ... Ford Ranger

Took it somewhere else they said it was cleaned cause it was rusted. light was off for a while came back on. I've lost hope on someone actually fixing it. The car also has a vabration the cap and rotter has been changed. It only vibrates when the check engine light is on. I've put about 600 dollars into this problem. Cause they are just guessing at it.

I just bought a 2004 Grand Cherokee pecial Edition. When I started my vehicle this morning the oil gauge never moved. Soon the "Check Gauges" light came on then the engine light came on. When I had the oil checked it was overful. Would this have caused this problem? The dealer has taken the car in for service and drained off the escess oil and replaced an O2 sensor. He said it had a code of PO139 and that is what caused the check engine light. I'm not sure i believe him.


Hi! You can stop doubting, when the 02 sensors are faulty it gives you the code po139. The oil just happes to be above normal filling but it has nothing to do with the code. Hope this shed some light. Take care! ... 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have two questions regarding the check engine light stays on problem: 1. If replacing the fuel fill cap had already fixed the cause of the problem, is resetting the counter the only thing a technician has to do? 2. If the fuel fill cap and refilling fuel with engine running are not the cause of the check engine light problem, what are the other causes if there is any? Thanks in advance!


There are hundreds of causes. Look here: http://alflash.com.ua/OBDII/EOBDcodes.pdf\015\012\015\012You need to have the car scanned to get the codes. ... 2000 Volvo S80

2003 Jeep grand cherokee, 6 cyl; Had a slew of problems. My transmission was slipping, shuddering when you got to 51 to 54 mph, and speedometer was haywire causing me to use my gps to check speed. Check engine light was on, codes 306 and 123. Checked the tps voltages, found that the Haynes manual had me checking the wrong pins for voltages. Got that squared away and found I had to replace the TPS again. Erased codes, now no check engine light. Wasn't aware that the TPS could cause so much...Repl

My check engine light came on. The dealership said "filler neck leaking causing evaporative leak." The gas cap also says "loose cap will turn on check engine light." Would like to try a new gas cap but do not know how to turn off check engine light to see if that is the problem.

How do I reset the Check Engine Light on a 2005 Ford Taurus? The system check says everything is OK. Previously, a dirty air filter caused the light to come on. I replaced it (it was somewhat dirty.) but the light did not go out. Also, a couple of days ago, my "gas cap" and "Brakes" lights came on. I restarted and the fault was cleared. However, the check engine light came on later.


Only way to clear is with a scanner. The scanner will also give you the codes so it can be diagnosed. If its an emission issue your warrenty should cover it. ... 2005 Ford Taurus

My 2005 Jeep Liberty v6 3.7L 4x2 (Basic base model) check engine light came on and my car mileage is 90,100 miles but I did not pay attention if it came on at 90k. My gas cap also was lost a few days ago but again did not pay attention if that caused the engine light. I went to autozone and bought a locking gas cap (stunt I think was the name). I replaced it and light still on. I was just wondering what else should I consider with this check engine light that just came on.


Give the computer a day or two to recognize the new gas cap and turn off the light. If it doesn't go off, your best bet is to visit a parts store and have them scan the computer for you to determine the cause of the light. Auto Zone and several oth ... 2005 Jeep Liberty

On my dashboard for my 2001 nissan pathfinder the check engine oil light is on and the word "Brake" is lit up. (i assume that's my emergency brake light). What is causing these 2 lights to come on. And the check engine oil light flickers on and off.


This is most likely sensor problems. If you brakes are worn, the brake light will come on intermittently. If your "check engine oil" light comes on and you know it's up to the full level, it is probably the low oil sensor. ... 2001 Nissan Pathfinder

I own a Hyundai Elantra 2003. Two days ago my check engine light came on. Prior to that I had my tank filled. After noticing the light on I looked up the check engine problem on the internet. The article I read indicated that not placing the cap on tightly could cause the light to come on. Went to the dealer they said the problem was a sensor related to the gas tank. They charged me over 400.00 dollars. The next day the trunk open light is on. They told me to bring in the car perhaps there is a
