When i drive the car the check eng light comes on then in a bit it will go out I check for code's but there's no code's?

You can only check the code whilst the light is on. Leave the code reader plugged in. When the light comes on, pull over if safe to do so and read the code reader.

I had a similar thing on my Lexus. It was a thermostat sensor that was telling the engine stayed hotter than it should for a while until the thermostat opened.

My remote start is not working and the service engine light is on in my 09 chevy impala. what could the problem be?

The Factory remote start is disabled any time the check engine light is on. You'll need to find out what is causing the check engine light to come on by using a scan tool/code reader to read the codes stored in the computers memory.

You can buy a basic code reader for about $50 and do this yourself. You could buy a nice scan tool for $3,500 to $10,000 and again do this yourself.

You can also call your local auto parts store. Sometimes they will read codes for free. Please do not buy what every they think is the problem.

The last thing you can do is head into your local shop or dealer if under warranty and have them do the diagnostic test to see what the codes are and why they are being triggered. There is usually a set fee for this.

Some common things that come to mind that would cause a check engine light are, Low coolant temperature, loose/missing gas cap, Catalytic converter inefficiency, and maybe an O2 sensor code.

Good luck and let us know what codes you find.

How do I reconnect the check engine light. Is it just a bulb?

If your check engine light comes on then it will definitely not pass.There is no such thing as a code that says your sensors are bad. I could help you out more if i had the codes.If your sensors were bad you would get a heater failure code.But then again it could be anything.You need that code.

When the engine light comes on the engine shuts off or stalls. while driving it never shuts off but it sort of hesitate when engine light comes on. whenthe engine is park and running the check engine light...

your local auto zone can read your code. you will need this code to trouble shoot, as there are many things that can cause this. your toyota is obd1 so call and ask if they can read your code before driving out there in your vehicles condition. most just have obd2 scanners (1996 and newer)

Why does the engine light keep glaring when I drive? I just recently had a tune-up on my 2001 jeep. I know I need an air filter and belt. Any Help??

Take it to Autozone and get an engine diagnostics done. They have a scanner that will give you the code that is causing your check engine light to come on. you can troubleshoot from there.

Check engine light on 1998 Z3 BMW

BMW engine light

Comes on if DME engine management system self diagnostic fault detected. Will stay on until codes are called up and memory erased.

With OBD read the code as follows. Turn on ignition key, press accelerator pedal to the floor five times within 5 seconds. The check engine light will remain on for 5 sec , blik off, come on for 2,5 sec, go off for 2,5 sec and fault code will begin to flash. If more than one fault exist 2nd fault code will be separated by 2,5 sec pause. after fault codes there will be a 0.5 sec flash and light will remain off. to read codes again do procedure again.

Canceling of codes. make sure fault code is present (short blink and light goes out for long period), depress throttle pedal for at least 10 sec. read fault codes again and check for code 1444 (no faults stored.)

Check also the following, fuel pump, oxygen sensor, fuel injectors, engine coolant temp sensor, idle speed control valve, mass airflow sensor and too many other things.
