SOURCE: Check Engine and Service Engine lights both on

No fuses control those lights, and while I'd ignore the service engine, check engine suggests something is wrong and should not be ignored!
You could buy yourself a nanocom or similar and reset your service light and read the fault code to tell if the check engine is an intermittent error or something potentially more serious!

Check Engine Light


take it to an accredited auto electrician and have the alternator and voltage checked for correct operation
battery has no service life so one at 8 months or 1 month is no guarantee that it is not defective
have it load tested as well

I have a 2004 GMC Envoy XUV with 127000 on it. The vehicle has been maintained and services better than any of my previous vehicles so this specific issue is just driving me crazy. About a week ago I...


These engines are known for ticking fan clutches. If the ticking doesnt significantly increase with the engine revving, it may be the fan clutch. The clicking usually happens momentarily and dissipates, and increases only to a certain engine speed. If its an internal mechanical issue, ticking will increase simultaneously with the engine speed increase.

I was having a similar problem with my 2002 Envoy. Usually when accelerating at 60 and 90km/h it would have almost like a clunk and idled rough.

I took it into the shop and they said a tune up would be the first step to correct the misfire (25 options to choose from!) After pulling the spark plugs the 5th and 6th didn't look right. As a result my mechanic ran a compression test.

The 6th cylinder is only putting out 80lbs of pressure where as the rest were putting out 195lbs (factory says it should be around 215lbs). His recomendation was new motor or new vehicle.

The problem you describe sounds like an oil pump failure. This would not be related to the serpentine belt, but there should have been an indication on the dash of low oil pressure. I have never seen an oil pump fail after only 5 years, but I don't know how the mechanic could have caused it to fail.

Why my Check Engine/Service Engines Soon light comes on?
The engine computer or PCM/ECM
All modern vehicles have a computer or the ECM (Electronic Control Module) that controls the operation of the vehicle powertrain (the engine and transmission). The main purpose of this is to keep the engine running at top efficiency with the lowest possible emissions. With constantly growing demands for better fuel economy and new strictest emission regulations it's not very easy to achieve. The engine parameters need to be constantly and precisely adjusted according to various conditions such as speed, load, engine temperature, gasoline quality, ambient air temperature, road conditions, etc. That's why today's cars have much more electronics than in early days - there is a large number of various sensors and other electronic devices that help the vehicle computer or ECM to precisely control the engine and transmission operation and monitor emissions.
The vehicle computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at. To properly diagnose what is wrong, you need to take your car to a mechanic or a dealer. The technician at the dealership or a garage will then hook up the scanner to the car computer and retrieve the stored trouble code(s). Then he (she) will look it up in the service manual provided by a car manufacturer. The service manual contains the list of possible codes (about few hundreds) and describes what each code means and what needs to be tested. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, what engine parameter is out of normal range. The technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint a defective part.

HI, THE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON.


im afraid you didnt need an oil change. you need to get a mechanic to plug a computer into it, and that will tell you acode, which you can use to see what is wrong with the vehicle.

Missing oil


very common problem you are burning oil. the piston rings, that nissan used are the problem. We see quite a few of the 3.5 liter engines loosing oil due to piston ring problem. nissan sais that 1qt. per 3500 miles is exceptable, but who want a vehicle that burns oil?? not me. good luck with that.
