You can go to your local parts store and buy an inexpensive code reader(make sure you get one that can reset codes as well).....plug it into your car to find out why the light is on and reset the light.
hope this helps....good luck!

Chevy Prizm or Toyota Corolla 2000 valve cover gasket problem? Right after oil change, engine check light came on & car started smoking & losing oil. I took out all 4 spark plugs: they were in very...


The valve cover gasket isn't hard to change. Oil on the plugs indicates a more serious problem. Smoke from the exhaust would be from rings, rich mixture, worn valve guides. It may be that the engine is overfull (that would show on the stick). Oil loss from a leaking gasket would smoke under the hood and leave oil on the engine and the ground.

My 1999 Chevy Prizm has the check engine light on - although I have had no mechanical problems with the care, it drives fine. I have lubed it, and gotten gas recently, but light still stays on.


Your check engine light is an emissions warning. Your vehicle will not pass smog with the engine light on. You can go to kragen or other auto parts stores and buy a GM code reader for it. Though it runs fine, its telling you that a sensor or something is bad.

2000 Chevy Prizm Lsi 4-speed auto trans. problems


That does sound like a linkage adjustment problem.

If that does not work, I'd try a fluid change and filter. But your diagnostics with pulling on the gear shifter is a pretty good indication of a linkage problem.

Choke indicator


Are u referring to the check engine light? If so, your car has an emission problem which should be checked out. If it is some other indicator you are referring to, your owners manual will tell you what it means. If u don't have your manual, go to gm.com/gmownercenter/chevy/ to have access to your manual online. countrycurt0
