The check engine light illuminates to tell you a problem exists. It also triggers a trouble code. You need to get the vehicle's trouble codes read using an OBD-II code reader. Without that it's just guessing ;-) Post back when you get the codes or look them up at OBD-Codes.com.

Do u think its better to change oil eventhough we often use the suv, the last time we change was 8 months ago.


Yes. it is recommended to change your oil every 3 months or 3000 miles, whichever comes first. I had a customer brag that they never needed to change thier oil. the oil was so full of sludge (burnt oil and carbon buildup) we had to use a screw driver to poke thru it to get to what little oil was left. most vehicles will not last that long and will blow the motor. so 19.95 every 3 months or so or 2500.00 plus and weeks of your vehicle in a shop oh id say every 2 to 3 years to replace your entire engine???

Oil Gauge Marking Way Past 80


Check your dipstick for antifreeze in the oil. You mad need to replace the oil pressure sensor/sending unit. If there's no antifreeze in engine oil, replace sending unit. Should be a round silver sending unit at the left rear place on the intake with a plastic black wiring connector with 2-3 wires going into it.

Bought 6 weeks ago, supposedly engine rebuilt as. 2 days ago began to clatter like a can of nuts & bolts. Best guess so far: thrown rod. Likely cost? Pro mechanic rebuilt his sis' car. Seemed up...


DID YOU KEEP EYE ON OIL LEVEL.REBUILD ENGINE WILL USE UNTIL RINGS BREAK IN. YOU NEED TO DO A OIL AND FILTER CHANGE AFTER 500 MILES. YOU NEED TO DRIVE ENGINE ACCELERATE LIGHTLY AVOID FAST QUICK ACCELERATION IF YOU DROVE ENGINE HARD DURING BREAKIN PROCECC THE CLATTERING NOISE COULD BE BROKE PISTON RINGS.CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL AND COOLANT SYSTEM MAKE SURE ENGINE NOT OVERHEATING OR IGNITION TIMING OFF.LET PRO MECHANIC CHECK IT OUT.

(1999 Honda Passport) I have a knock in my engine, it is getting to be very loud and I have been told I have a lifter out. I bought the car about a month ago from a family friend who didn't need it...


Dude.. Your looking at needing a new engine. There are no lifters in a dual overhead cam engine. There are only rockers. If you have a "kncok" its more than likely a rod. That means new engine.

If you killed the engine by not adding oil, fixing the rod now is not an option. You have damaged all of the rod and main bearings. Its only a matter of time before the others fail as well.

2005 mazda 3 2.3l that is burning oil (no leaks)


possibly the pcv but check if your cars exhaust smoke is blueish or white in color if it does and your car doesnt have an oil leak then sure its burning engine oil along with fuel, the piston rings is defective, since you replaced engine oil the additive that the owner has put with the oil to prevent blowby is gone thats why it starts burning oil.....

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.

Burning over a quart of oil every two weeks


you more than likely have some bad rings.

Go to autozone and buy a bottle of Lucas oil treatment, and add it to the oil, if this does not solve the problem you will need an engine rebuild.
