Check coolant I have a '99 caddy deville and about every 3 weeks or so the check coolant light comes on and now when i stop at a red light sometimes it dies and when i had the guy at auto zone read it it said a miss fire in cylander #1 do i need a tune up or something? not real good with cars if anyone has any suggestions would really love to hear them thanx
You did not mention if you had lost any coolant when the light went on. If you have been adding coolant, misfire could be from blown head gasket. I'd have it checked for hydrocarbons in the radiator and go from there. ... 1999 Cadillac DeVille

Have tried 3 methods of checking fault codes via flashing check engine light (1. turn key on-off-on-off-on-off-on...hold trip reset button then on-off-on-off-on release trip reset... then trip reet, on-offx5 and release... still no flashing engine light.

The checj engine light on my 99 pontiac sunfire came on last week and stayed on when i drove only a few short distances. it sat for 4 days and was on again when i drove under 8 miles then finally turned off-the fluids were checked and all ok-coolant wasn't to full mark but wasn't low-today i drove my furthest trip-apprx 30 miles and coolant light came on-stopped and filled to full line then drove my remaining 10 miles all uphill mountain road-light again came on about 1 minute b4 i reached hotel
First of all, was the water on the passenger side from the air conditioner or a leak (what color was the fluid?)-the cap has to be tight, otherwise it will not hold pressure, so that has to be checked before you set off again-push down as you turn th ... 1999 Pontiac Sunfire
My 1995 neon has ~105K miles, just passed emmissions with flying colors 1 week ago, and the ''check engine light'' came on. I have checked oil, coolant, brake juice, fan belt and air conditioner belt. Car runs well... but the light is still on. What are the probable cause for the light to come on and stay on? Please advise. Thanks
The light has nothing to do with oil or coolant levels. it comes on for one of the following reasons. You will need to have the system computer memory tested to see which fault the system has.\015\012CODE Description of Trouble Code 11 Ti ... 1995 Dodge Neon

The vehicle is a 2004 Volkswagen Passat wagon GLX with v6 engine and about 55,000 miles. The check engine light comes on and with a code reader it shows a code "PO 118 Mod 10. Engine coolant temp high input". My code reader tool has a reset function and I have erased the check engine light. It does fine for about a week or two and the same reading reapears. The engine operating temperature on the dash always reads in the normal operating range. What is the problem and is it serious?
You have a faulty sensor somewhere here.If you cleared the error and it came back then you need to check the resistance of the sensor with a meter.\015\012Temp sensor is on the tranny side of the head or in the top radiator hose where it has a ... 2002 Volkswagen Passat

I have a 2001 Chevy Silverado with the 6.6 duramax LB7 engine. My truck has the check engine light on that will periodically go off and then back on every 1,000 miles approx. Also my truck will blow white/ grey smoke at idle then dissapear once at operating speeds. There is no coolant lost or oil being lost to my knowledge so what gives? More imporntantly for me is to get the check engine light to go off forever! If there is some trick to do this with out ripping the dash apart.

What can cause the check engine light for a bank 1 lean in a 06 chevy trailblazer to come on repeatedly? it has been taken to repair shops and the dealer. They fix and reset the codes. but when i turn the heat on in my truck it causes the check engine light to come on?
What have the repair shops and dealer diagnosed so far? And what have they done to "fix" the problem? A lean condition sometimes is caused by a vacuum leak in the intake. ... 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer
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
Check engine light is on...what will reset it? I have cleaned air filter, filled coolant, added one quart of oil..but no difference in the way the car runs..which is fine. this might be the sensor problem itself...as this has been the case before. How do you reset to turn the light off?
Have the code read at the local Auto Parts store and repair the fault causing the light to come on. It is most likely the O2 Sensor that needs replaced. Once it is replaced you can have the fault codes reset and the light will go out. ... 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
