2001 ford taurus Have a constant leak oil light has been on for weeks 3 days ago car would not turn on went to auto advance to get the battery check; replace battery car still shut off, permenantly f


There are some simple kits which have a glowing fluid which can be seen with a UV ultraviolet light supplied in the kit.

You add the glowing liquid to the engine, run the motor, and inspect the drips for the leak location. Then you fix that bad part.

Now sometimes the sending units do leak. But any gasket or seal can leak just as well.

Do not run the engine with the oil light on. Check your oil level constantly. No oil=no engine.

Can not speculate on battery problem from info provided.

2008 coblat ls engine light keeps coming on and coolant is not reading put coolant in light went off but returned on next day


You have a leak. Check the oil to see if there is water in it. Withe the engine running, check the tailpipe to see if excess water is coming out. If yes to either of these, then you have a bad head gasket or cracks in the head/block. You need to find where the coolant is leaking in order to fix it.

We just bought a 05 chevy equinox 2 days ago. Last night the "service engine"light came on. My husband went to check the oil and cant find the dip stick.


If you don't tighten the gas cap (make it click at least four times) when refueling it will turn the check engin light on. The dip stick is located in the front of the engine and is a yellow loop.

2. step on the brake pedal 5 times within 10 seconds. 3. key off. 4. start car. 5. check if the light went out. you may have to try it a few times to get it.

Holden Rodeo 2001, check engine light keeps coming on!?


I'm having same problem on my 2000 model rodeo 4wd 3.2L V6. Other day check engine light came on. I checked engine bay nothing abnormal, or power loss. Next day light was gone. 2 days later driving, a sudden loss of power and light came up. After idling for a couple of minutes, drove off with light still on but all power back. 1 hour later of faultless driving loss of power for a minute or so. Engine temp normal. Had break for 1/2 hour and set off for last hour of journey without fault except check engine light still on. Following dayon startup light went out???
Seeking help from experts.

1997 Chevy Cavailer Heat stoped working


Check your coolant level. If it is low and there is no obvious signs of a leak do a compression check on the engine (possible blown head gasket) or the fan / thermostat is not working properly.

Data Link


the no connect fault indicates that you have a ecm issue, however the check engine light will come on if your fluids are low(coolant,oil) if your vehicle was driving fine except for the light coming on chances are there will be no codes and i would check the fluids. Incidently not all code scanners work the same way on all vehicles. On mine which is the kind all major dealerships use you have to have key cards that send a certain signal through the data link. this card is mad for a ceratin kind of vehicle. This could be the reason your friends scanner did not work on the vehicle. keep me posted with the result of the fluid check. I would also check the connection of the oil sending unit and or the coolant temp sensor lead this will cause the light to come on as well. please rate this... thanks
