My 2000 Sable starts blowing hot air about every 6 months. I mean like an oven. All I do is disconnect the battery negative terminal for about 5 minutes. After I re-connect the problem is solved. This solves many problems on this car, it just needs a re-boot. It must be powered by Microsoft (ha ha). Good luck. ps my auto headlamps never did work right either. Dave.

Barring any vacuum leaks, P0401 is indicative of a bad EGR valve. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

2001 Passat check engine light flashing and car shuts off will not start


The first step is to plug in an OBD-2 scanner to read exactly what the fault code is, that is setting off the check engine light (CEL). If you are in the USA, most auto parts stores like AutoZone, Oreillys, or Advance Auto Parts have these OBD-2 scanners and will check for vehicle fault codes at no cost (free).
Since the problem seems to arise when the check engine light comes on, it is likely the code will show the exact malfunctioning part, or an area to focus on.
Without knowing the exact error/fault code, it's impossible to say what the exact problem is, that's causing the car's shutdown.

You can go to Advance Auto, Auto Zone, or other auto parts stores and they will hook up their OBD diagnostic tool to your car and it will read the codes that are causing you your problem. Then they can tell you what the code means, or at least a general idea of where the problem is. For instance, I had a check engine light on, I took it to Advance Auto, they identified the code and told me it was related to the ignition or a spark problem. He told me in his experience to check the spark plugs and spark plug wires first. It was a cracked spark plug boot that gave me an ignition problem whenever it rained or was damp/humid out. You can also google the actual code once you know it, the auto parts stores will give you a printout after they run the OBD scan tool on your car.

My 2003 Lincoln LS V8 is losing power when i accelerate and makes a little clicking sound at the same time underneath the engine it seems like. The only thing on the dash is a check engine light. what do I...


Must read codes off of the obd-II computer using a scanner for obd-II so that you can know which system is being flagged. This is the first step.

May try to take it to autozone or advance auto parts to have them read the codes for free.

Or, you could purchase your own scanner at Sears or Walmart or your local parts store in order to read the codes yourself, and clear any that are intermittent.

If it's a hard code, as you describe, the scanner will come in handy.

Good luck on this diagnosis.

When "check engine" light stay


Check engine could be any of many faults but instead of going to dealer, stop by a local Autozone, Advance,etc auto parts store and have them perform a FREE fault scan. They'll come out to your car, plug in their scanner, read the codes, print you out faults found (in ENGLISH - not code) and advise you, then they'll reset your lights - best part - FREE

Check engine light just came on


If the check engine light is on, then there is a code stored in it. To retrieve, get an OBD-II compliant scanner and read the codes. Clear it after that and see if it comes back. If it does, then read the codes again to see if they are the same.

One can go to autozone or advance auto parts and have the engine codes read for free. Otherwise, you can purchase your own scanner for under $100 from Sears or Walmart or Amazon.com, as examples.

Good luck on this repair babygirl3182.

The Warning Light "Service engine soon" came on. We have a 2001 Mercury Sable. How many miles can the car be driven before dealer inspection?


This light means that the computer in the car has sensed a problem with something on the car. You should take the car to a local auto parts store and have them read the codes from the service engine light. Post the codes they give you here and we can help more. Most likely you wont hurt the car by driving it with that light on. Better to ba safe then sorry thought.

Engine Lights On...


When you hook up the scanner, make sure the ignition is off. After you plug it in, turn the key to "run".....do not start the car.
