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.

My 2002 Grand Prix GT 3.8L Won't pass emissions. Testing center's scanner says car was recently worked on and that the mileage driven since is not enough to recycle check engine light. The ck eng. light has not come up in over a year. The light bulb is good. Since then we have had the engine scanned and no codes are showing up. Emissions test performed a 2nd time and again failed for same reason. Could the ECU possibly be bad? Any help would be appreciated.... About to pull my hair out!


I would hope that's all there is to it but I've been driving it for several hundred miles between emissions tests. I believe the ECU isn't resetting like it should. I've replaced the usual suspects like O2 sensors, Spark plugs (all 6), cleaned EGR va ... 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix

I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand AM SE with a V6 3.4 liter engine. I had my check engine light come on and went to Auto Zone to get a code which related to a emission vapor leak.

I got a code for the MAF SENSOR so I bought the piece and it cause my car to stall out. So I put the old piece in AND the car is running normal. the check engine light went off and comes on then goes off again. The engine light is on now and the guy at the emissions say that the code is P0102 and its the MAF VACUUM. What is that and what's the difference between them. And how do I fix this


Code 102 means the MAF sensor is telling the computer there is very little air flow into the intake. Normally the airflow is lower at idle than when you are accelerating, but the sensor reading is lower than spec.You could have a leaking hose b ... Cars & Trucks
