The check engine light has nothing to do with any certain mileage, it is warning light that comes on when the on board computer (called the PCM) has sensed a problem with the the engine, emission system many components performance, it is called the OBD2 (on board diagnostics generation 2) system.

My check engine light is on in my 2004 jeep grand cherokee. I have 60000 miles on it and I dont know why the check engine light is on. Also whenever I switch from drive to reverse it is very jerky and...


The check engine light is a general warning that you have a problem that needs attention. Diagnosis of the problem requires a computer scan. You can have this done at most auto shops and parts stores, and many will run the scan at no cost to you. Your transmission problem may be the cause of the light, but even if it's not, the scan may give you some insight into it as well.

I was told to change the timing belt at 60000 to 62ooo is this true?


Depending on the engine size but yes it is true and more likely if you use non-genuine parts you will have to do that at 55000 miles or 90000 km. 60000 is a manufacturer/dealer service standard but I would not want to try the limits. Engine costs much more than a timing belt kit.

I have a 2004 XG350 with 56918 miles on it, I was told 5 years or 60000 miles to do timing belt/chain. Should I wait for 60000 since i'm into the 5th year?


Relax, there's still plenty of time. You could go 6 years and 70000 miles with only a slightly greater chance of failure, there's plenty of over-engineering. But, if you're still under warranty and want to keep it, then change it at 59999.

Problem started at about 60000 miles. Whenever it


their is no cpu in a van, their is an ecu, and that should be taken care at dealer. they must have a repair depot, or a certified area to get it repaired...
if its the check engine light, well if all fluids are fine, and it runs its ok... just go to a local garage they should be able to shut it off... have you replaced the intake filter?, run some cleaner through the system, looked around for some loose or messed up wiring around the firewall ?

Check engine light


I am going to take a guess and say, that you check engine light is a EVAP leak and you will need new VENT CONTROL VALVE and a WATER SEPARATOR KIT, but that's just a guess. prettycommon problem on your vehicle. As far as the whoorling sound goes, those have upper timing chain problems. You are going to hear more of a whinning noise at about 2000 rpm's. Those chains are waranteed 5years or 60000 miles.
