Dear Fcorrela,

On some makes and model of cars and vehicles, this is acceptable, but if the light is remaing on for longer than 5-10 seconds then you may have a problem with the engine management, even so, get it to a garage and have them inspect the engine and also have an emissions test done too. . . Most problematic engines can be diagnosed by analysing the vehicle emissions.

I hope this is the fixya for you, and please do let me know how you get on with regards to this matter.

Yours sincerely

Ouszen

2007 CRV check engine light goes on and off


Do not pay for a scan. Take the car to a store that offers free scans and tell them you need the codes stored in history and any pending codes. Then post the codes here for help with diagnosis. Don't rep, ace parts until you have a good diagnosis.

Check engine light comes on and then the temperature gauge goes up to hot


Mine did it too.... The problem is the Engine Power Relay.

The Engine Power Relay is in the relay box in the engine compartment. Aftermarket relay is cheap, but the original Ssangyong part will last many years longer.

Hope this helps.

Coolant sensor may be the problem. It is located near the thermostat housing. It may be sticking between modes & not operating properly.Also make sure coolant is circulating in system.

Engine light is flashing on, and is running rough!


WHEN THE LIGHT IS FLASHING IT MEANS THAT YOU HAVE A MISFIRE. I SUGGEST YOU REPLACE PLUGS AND WIRES. BECAREFUL DRIVING BECAUSE ALTHOUGH UNLIKLY, IT COULD BE MORE SERIOUS AND CAUSE A FIRE
