I assume everything else is working fine?? Remove the negative battery cable for about a minute. Turn the key on, don't start the car, leave it on for about a minute, shut it off, then fire up the car. This just 'may' work! Have seen people remove the bulb, but that is not solving the prob. You may need to have the codes checked by the dealer. Sorry but that's the best I can do at this time. Frankster016

My 2000 vw passat will not pass inspection because of codes, the check engine light has always been on. what do i do?


Yes, fix it.
When the check engine light is on it's in limp home mode. Means it goes to set values and runs poorly...
also, check local/state laws. they may have a grandfather clause that states after you invest a certain amount of money, they will pass it...

Tried getting ford f150 4.2 2003 inspected. Replaced air filter and fuel filter already. Check engine lit was on before replacing them . Now check engine light is out . But won't pass inspection.


As for your codes p1131 and 1151: Ford - Lack Of Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 1 Switches - Sensor Indicates Lean


Last week I had the very same catalyst, evap and ECG codes come up on my 1999 Mercury Mystique which is like a Ford Taurus. A friend was able to find a hole or leak in the hose connected, replaced it and it runs fine. I havent run it a full and straight 50 miles yet to clear the check engine light but that repair alone changed the entire way the car was poorly driving. Im sure that hasnt fixed all the probs but thats a good starting point.

My 1998 chevy lumina won't start right away and


The cooling system shouldn't be losing much coolant.

If you're putting in coolant regularly
If you're seeing slick oil in the coolant
If you're hearing noise in the engine while driving

You may have a crack in your engine block and your engine isn't being lubricated properly anymore. This will cause noise and leaks, make a motor run really rough and cause rough starting.

I suggest you bring your vehicle in for a coolant system pressure test and a chassis leak check. This should be a free service from any auto shop that wants your money for repairs.

Spark plugs usually degrade your performance slowly and don't make noise while doing it unless in extreme cases.

Good luck!

Check engine light code p1676 Chevy lumina Ltz


Trouble Code: P1676 (3.8L V6 VIN K Auto)
Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Purge Solenoid

Number of Trips to Set Code: 1
OBD II Monitor Type: CCM Details
Indicators: MIL Details
Trouble Code Conditions:
Conditions for Setting the DTC.
  • The ignition is on.
  • An improper voltage level has been detected on the output circuit which controls the EVAP purge solenoid.
  • The above conditions are present for at least 30 seconds.

Possible Causes:
  • Poor connection at the PCM. Inspect harness connectors for backed out terminals, improper mating, broken locks, improperly formed or damaged terminals, and poor terminal to wire connection.
  • Damaged harness.
  • Inspect the wiring harness for damage. If the harness appears to be OK, disconnect the PCM, turn the ignition on and observe a voltmeter connected between the EVAP purge solenoid control circuit and ground at the PCM harness connector while moving connectors and wiring harnesses related to the EVAP purge solenoid. A change in voltage will indicate the location of the malfunction.

No. Unfortunately it wont pass. If you invested already over $450.00 in repairing the emission system you could pass it if you have proof for it.

1998 Chevy Lumina has check Engine light on and code says egr valve which has been replaced now what


Check engine lights sometimes do not go off right away. To reset the check engine light, disconnect your battery, turn the lights on, on your car ( to drain any power left in the computer systems), reconnect the battery and the light should be off. If it comes back on, the EGR valve was not installed properly.

1998 lumina engine light keeps coming on but i dont know why. it goes off sometimes but then keeps coming back on. any solutions?


Since the check engine light does not specify what the problem is a scanner is needed to access the engine control computer. You can have it checked at any Chevy dealership and/or local auto repair shop.
