First thing is to check all of your fluids. Oil, antifreeze, brake fluid, etc...
Auto parts stores like Autozone and NAPA have a small computer that they can plug in under the dash of your car and tell you what the problem is. The Auto parts stores where I live will usually do this for free of charge. If it is a sensor they should be able to tell you which one and how to get to it!

Gas cap light is on


ok fords have always had this problem since early models but only would display as a check engine code. it grew so common that a secondary light was installed in the clusters to warn you. it means either your gascap seal is bad or you have a ruptured line or bad snesor or selenoid somehwere along you vehicles emission control system. this system maneges vapors and fumes from the gastank back and fourth pressurizing and vise versa the fuel tank as well as allowing your engine to swallow these fumes. youd need a shop or your trusted dealer to tak a look at it because otherwise you might end up changine part after parrt without pinpointing a solution.

I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 2007(3.7),with 33,000 miles in it. The OBD-Code diagnose was P0430 B (Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold(Bank2). I change the 2 oxygen sensors on the...


If the diagnostic code wasn't cleared with a scan tool and thus turning off the engine light; it will stay on for this code until the engine computer no longer detects a problem. For emissions control parts that will take a predetermined number of warm up and run cycles, usually about 30.

In other words if the problem was fixed then your computer will clear the code and the engine light will shut off automatically. That is what your dealer service should have told you.

You could have an air bubble in the system. It is also possible that the heater core has debris blocking the flow of water. I would check to see that you are getting good circulation by checking the heater hoses near the firewall. If they are both getting hot then you may have an air baffle issue inside the heater box.

possably a vacuum leak. the check engine light comes on with an emmissions issue, ie vac leak, and it will not allow the cruise to work. once the error is fixed, your cruise should work properly again

Runs good with ecm un-plugged in, but when plugged in runs rough


Static timing should be 10 deg btdc you can check that timing when you disconect the tan/black trace wire there should be a weatherproof connector for this wire near the Left hand inner skirt this wire is called the set timing connector and when disconnected stops the ecm from adjusting the timing.

1996 doge intrepid wont pass emission test because IM monitors ar


Just maybe your O2 sensors are not operating properly. They may be requiring your engine to heat them up to get upper temperature readings but not lower. You can easily diagnose these and all other sensors and problems by purchasing a Hains manual at your local Auto Zone or Advance auto store which will greatly aide you in diagnosing all your auto needs. And the fault symptom index at the beginning of the book will ease your troubles with professional one on one advice with step by step instructions. Its like having your own ASE certified mechanic at your finger tips. Good luck.

Failed smog cause check engine light


I can tell you for sure that all US models of the Ford Ranger came with a emission system that incorporated a MIL or check eng light, go to the dealer and have them run your VIN on the Ford on line information service, that will give you the engine Calibration of the emission system, you can then find out what emission system was used, export or US.
