Having problems with your 2001 Kia Sportage ?

Engine light came on day before yesterday..the car was running fine. Went to auto zone to have the 'light checked' with the machine and they said it was the e-vap sensor. Is that something I can buy and can put in?

Kia is kind of touchy when it comes to this warning light,did you put gas in it while it was running?That will cause it to come on and also a bad gas cap can too.But you will have to have a scanner to clear the code.

Hey guys i have a 2000 intrepid with a used engine just put in. at high rev the check engine light flickers then goes off. Took a trip to West Linn OR from Weiser ID, on the way back the check engine light came on and wont go off. Had the autozone check it the computer said 4 of the 6 cylinders were misfiring but the car purs. You feel no miss at all. When the spark plugs were replaced we didnt use the gel that we were told to put into the housing for the plugs they said something about direct f


Dysturbedr1,\015\012In a word, NO- don't worry about the gel. There are 2 different kinds of "goop" that is sold for installing new plugs- one is to lubricate the spark plug threads, and the other (which I think you are calling the "gel") is to ... 2000 Dodge Intrepid

We had our 1999 Ford Taurus wagon was put on a computer diognoisis machine and checked by a mechanic and it says it is not getting any oil pressure to the engine he also said that there were too many issues with the car and that it could be the head gaskets (it makes a diesel noice when running and the check engine light soon is on with the red light that tells it needs oil , he also said that it wasnt registering on the machine ,but there are no leaks under car and only once in awhile ther


Check your dipstick to see if there is oil in the motor. Check your water. There is an additive called Lubegard that may help. Seems this product is carried at Oreilly, Carquest, and NAPA stores only. Tell the Autoparts people what you want to fi ... 1999 Ford Taurus

My 2002 4 runner check engine light trac off light and vsc trac light are on. i took it to a mechanic and he said it was throwing off transmission codes. i know there is something wrong with my trans but i dont know what? it shifts very rough but only above 50 mph. i was told it was my overdrive shudder but what can i do to fix it? the mechanic gave me this lube guard stuff. i put it in yesterday and now my truck is running worse and now my check engine light is blinking. can some one help?


If the check engine light is flashing then you have a misfire in the engine. Only worry about the CE light. On toyota, the TRAC off light and VSC light will both come on anytime the CE light is on. So once you fix the reason the CE light is on, th ... 2002 Toyota 4Runner

The check engine light is on, the ABS, and the traction control light are on. I went and had it put on the diagnostic machine at autozone, the following codes came up P1700 and U2108(twice) autozone could not tell what they were said dealer codes. Does anyone know what these codes are and what to do? At autozone I had the codes reset but the check engine light would come back on.


The P1700 is just a request for the check engine light, and this is caused by the U2108. The U2108 is basically telling you that the Electronic Brake and Traction Control Module (EBTCM) is not communicating with the powertrain control module, o ... 2000 Cadillac Catera

Check oil light on 1996 chevy cavalier. guy who sold me said that it was easy fix if i bought the part. but the check oil light keeps coming on and off. there is a rattling noise in the back so im not sure if the car will go down on me anytime soon. is there something wrong with my car? i paid $2000 for it i want to know if its worth my money since i already put $1200 down.


My question is that if it was an easy fix why didn't he fix it? I would put a manual oil pressure gauge on the engine to check the oil pressure. When an oil light comes on that is not good. It may just have a bad oil pressure sending unit but I wo ... 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier

I had blinking vsc code and check engin light on. Took it to a dealer who ran diagnotic. Dealer said gas cap has failed and new charcoal canister is needed. Since the high cost of latter, I simply replaced gas cap only and warning lights remained off. now, 4 months later lights came back on. Am I going to have to replace gas caps every couple of months? If I buy a new cap and put it on myself does the warning lights go off by themselves it this is the correct fix or do they need to be rese

I had the car put on a diagnosics machine and it said it was the Knock sensor so i replaced the sensor but it still keeps happening and the light only comes on when im on the motorway, do you know whay this could be?

My check engine was coming on, so I had a new O2 sensor put on in January. (but it still comes on sometimes). Now I can be driving and the speedometer and rpm gauge will drop all of a sudden and it will ****. Once even the gas gauge dropped and the empty light came on. I have taken to a shop 3 times. They put in a new fuel filter and transmission fluid and changed the oil. They said it has to be having the problem when they have it on the machine and driving it, but it hasn't done it while t

I have a 2004 Jeep Wrangler. The Engine light came on. I had Auto Zone check the code for me. I don't remember the number, but they said that it was the Purge Valve. I had to buy the Purge Valve from the dealer, because Auto Zone didn't have it. I Put the Purge valve on, and cleared out the code. The Jeep light stayed off for about 24 hours, and it actually ran better, then it came back on. HELP !!!

Check engine light I took the car in to autozone, after putting it on the machine "whatever" It came up "H02S12 circuit heater malfuntion" I do not live near a Honda dealership, my local mechanic said it may be the catalytic converter, or holes in hoses. They turned the light off but it came back on. This seems nothing to me like the autozone results. Got any insight?


Since Autozone only turned off the light, if the problem persists, the light will come right back on. Autozone didn't actually do anything with the car. H02S12 means the Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 2. They should have given you a trouble code as w ... 2006 Honda CR-V

The service engine light came on and I had it checked. The machine said trottle body needed cleaning. I purchases some trottle cleaner and used about half the can, plus purchased feul cleaner to put in the tank. It has been a few days since I did this, but the light is still on. What is the problem, or is it some else I should be doing?


If you did not clear the codes, it will take a few drive cycles for the computer to clear itself. (usually at least twenty miles in varying traffic situations) If not, have the code read again and post the actual code #. Someone may have mis-read i ... Cadillac DeVille

Periodically, every couple of months it seems, the check engine light comes on. After the light is on for several days, the car will suddenly decide not to start. It will fire up and run for about 10-15 seconds and die before you can put it in gear. I have had the car scanned and the code indicated that it was the cam shaft sensor, which has now been replaced 3 times in about 18 months. Any ideas what else it could be? Someone said it may be a map sensor? Is that something I can easily replace m

My '96 olds 88 royale ls supercharge started sputtering and idlying roughly on my way home from work. I called my mechanic and ran it up to him after notifying him of the problem and that the check engine light was now on he put it on the computer tapped something in the car with a hammer and the sputtering went away.

I just bought a a2002 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7, the lifters are tapping pretty bad, it gets better after the pick up heats up but you can still hear it, they just had the heads milled out and put new lifter kits on it???? Also, the check engine light came on and we hooked it up to the computer and it said something about the fuel running to rich, it uses an outrageous amount of gas was told it might be the fuel pressure regulator...any suggestions. I believe I just bought a LEMON!!!


You just need to have the lifters adjusted that will solve the tapping and and a little fuel consumption not sure bout the computer diagnosis though good luck ... Dodge Pickup

Transmission? I bought my car last June from a used car dealership. When I got it I realized it hesitates before switching into reverse, then bangs into it. The check engine light came on and when it was put on the machine it said transmission. They turned it off and it has yet to come back on. It only bangs into reverse when it hasn't been running for a few hours, like in the beginning of my day and at the end, but not after I've been driving it for a bit. It's been like this for over a year no
