The problem with engine check lights is that they need to be read by a special scan tool to find out what codes are present, which hopefully steer the mechanic in the right direction for diagnosis and repair. Unfortunately there could be 50 or more reasons why the check light would illuminate, so this needs to be checked by a workshop with the right test gear for your vehicle. Get them to just do a code test and give you an estimate on repair costs if price is a concern, and give you a printout of the codes present. You can take this printout to a couple of workshops and get a few estimates if you want. I recommend choosing the place that appears the most professional and friendly, rather than the cheapest, or some balance between those factors.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help,
Mark.

What could cause 92 honda accord suddenly dies check engine light came. started back with no prolems.


When the engine dies with the ignition on the check engine light comes on no matter what. Go to your local auto parts store for a free check with an OBS2 scanner. They will tell you whats wrong or turn off the check engine if nothing is wrong. No charge it's free.

Driving with check engine light can it cause a problem after removing cartalic converter?


The "Check Engine Light" is just a light. An indication of something else being wrong. It's that thing that's wrong that can cause you a problem, or not... It depends what turned it on. They are mostly for emissions, i.e. pollution controls for the engine. LOL! Like pulling off your catalytic converter. So, the light won't hurt your engine, but what made the light come on in the 1st place could, depending on what that is/was. P.S. You can't get inspected without the CAT on there.

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, and all fluid is ok, check oil,trns ok


Any check engine light for a car of this year or newer is sent through the car's main computer. If you go to Advanced Auto or any other like auto store, they will be able to hook your car up to a machine which will tell you exactly what is wrong. They will also be able to offer advice on how to repair.

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!
