You really need to scan it to see what codes come up then you can go from there.

Have somebody scan it and see what the code is first, sounds like an idle control valve, vacuum leak or egr valve

O2 sensor. Doesn't come on all the time. Gives false signal at times. They carbon up and need to be sandblasted or replaced.

Have a 95 chevy lumina, the oil light came on and the engine died. Added oil, now car will not start.


How long was the oil light on before the engine died? Did you hear any noises coming from the engine before it died? If the oil light was on for a while and you were still driving on it, the engine could have seized up which would explain why it won't start back up. Do you know why the oil light came on? Do you have an oil leak that you're aware of or have you seen blue smoke coming out of your tailpipe while driving? There are a lot of different scenarios that could have happened with this.

1986 chevy corvette service engine light


the light can be reset by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes, but the light is telling you there is a problem in the electronic controls of the engine, until that problem is fixed the light will continue to come on. Here is how u test the system for the trouble codes that are stored whenever the check engine light comes on. Go to the link for instructions on how to retrieve codes.
