FORD ESCAPE EMISSION CONTROL WARNING LIGHT PROBLEM: I have a Ford Escape XLT, 6 cylinder, 2002 model, and the above warning light comes on, on the dash. The problem is, that it only comes on after the car has been started, but once this light is on, it says on for a long period of time. I have been advised by a mechanic that it could be the Oxygen Sensors, so I have had these two replaced, but this light still comes on. Do you agree with the opinion of this mechanic, or do you think it could

Have a 2001 Chevrolet venture van. check engine light is on steady. just had an intake valve replaced. in looking through my manual i see that the check engine light will come on to indicate a possible problem with emissions. now to me emissions does not seem like a big problem since my state does not regulate these. what could cause the light to come on solid and will it hurt the vehicle to keep driving it? If so how.

I own a 2003 Kia Spectra I have owned the car since 2005. Every 6 months or so the emission control light comes on on the dash and the car shudders sometimes whilst driving and it will just cut out which is quite dangerous. I have taken it to my local Kia dealer a number of times and they have advised that it doesn't show up a code so they cannot fix the problem. What could this be??

I have a 2008 Aspen the check engine light was on when I bought the car from the Infinity dealership, they claim that since they dont have the proper equipment to erase the code, but that the car has no problems. Both the check engine light and the oil change light come on. The code that comes up is the emissions code, they replaced the gas cap but the light came on that sameday.

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

2001 volvo s60 brake lights out. mechanic not sure what's going on. Thinks it may be something with the relays. This car has had problems with lights since the day that I bought it (new). The dealer used to just bang on the light with his fist and the light would come back on. Already replaced one light housing, now neither of the two brake lights work (the third light, does, though)

PCM I also have a 99 Dodge Durango, and my truck has been dying without notice. After it dies, the check engine light comes on, the 'low gas' gauge comes on, and the 'no bus' displays on the odometer reading. I have replaced the crank sensor, and that was not the problem. My truck is currently at the dealer to replace the PCM. Please advise if you think by replacing the PCM will resolve the problem. Thank you.

2003 buick century won't start. Ignition switch goes clickety-clickety. Can still lock doors and the lights come on. Noticed the "check engine" light but don't know if it would stay on if engine started. Any clues on this problem? Checked battery water. Problem occurred out of the blue just as I reached home from dealer servicing--TX inspection, oil change & lube, emissions servicing, and brake fluid flushed. Original owner and have 77,000 miles on car--regular dealer servicing.


Just because the battery has enough power to operate the lights and door locks does not mean it would pass a load test. If the battery checks out OK then check the battery cables. use one side of a pair of jumper cables to bypass each cable starting ... 2003 Buick Century

Emissions problem I just had the fuel pump replaced because of a bad sending unit. Within a month the check engine light came on and the code said that the EGR valve was clogged.
