This sounds like a problem with a sensor on the engine or transmission. You may want to have your car taken to a diagnostic specialist where they can retrieve "engine codes". Your check engine light is informing you of a possible failure of a sensor or switch in relation to your vehicle's computer. A special computer will be capable of retrieving engine codes and a competent mechanic should be able to decipher and perform whatever repair is necessary.

2006 Cadillac cts is burning gas faster than the normal rate after i got an oil change at jiffy lube 2 weeks ago


I dont think there is a connection between an oil change and the gallons per mile.
With that age car, I suggest a Terra engine clean. It will blow away nine years of gunk from the spark plugs, fuel injectors, cylinders and exhaust. Should give you more power, more miles..

Sounds like this shop is trying to take advantage of you because you're a female and unlikely to be knowledgeable about cars. If you have a male relative. friend, significant other, co-worker, etc. , ask him to take your car to this shop and ask the service advisor about the condition of the tires. I'd bet a week's pay that he gets a different story (of course, I'm now retired so I don't get paid weekly LOL). It's a cruel and all to common practice. If you can't enlist any help, take your car to a different shop and have them check it out. I think you're being swindled..

code p0441 refers to evaporative emission EVAP system-incorrect flow detected===causes hose connections--intake leak---EVAP canister purge valve
Po144 refers to the same fault and causes
Po446 refers to EVAP system--vent control-circuit malfunction===causes --wiring---EVAP canister purge valve---ECM In all cases codes the canister purge valve gets a mention and then the ECM. I would take it back and ask that the canister purge valve be changed or even ask for a new canister as there are occasions when filling the tank to the filler hole will induce fuel into the canister causing it to malfunction.

Why would my oil light be coming on and beeping even though I have a full oil reservoir?


if oil level is ok, your oil PRESSURE is dangerously low.
Either the wrong oil was used, or your oil pump is going bad.

Ill bet on wrong oil since you just had it changed,

Do you have a "Check Engine" light?

Check the coils in each cylinder. At 140k the valve cover gaskets tend to break and oil will fill the coils causing misfires and stalling.

Oil light flashing, last oil change 7 wks ago


I belive they didn't reset the oil light timer. I belive the sequence is 1. key on (not acc with engine off)
2. step on the brake pedal 5 times within 10 seconds. 3. key off. 4. start car. 5. check if the light went out. you may have to try it a few times to get it.

Engine light is on.


Your vehicle’s 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 lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. Not fluid related, but could be a small problem that's easy to fix now. Even a loose gas cap can turn the light on. Have a code scan, that's the starting point.
