Question about 1988 Chevrolet C1500

1 Answer

The service engine soon light keeps coming on

I have a 1988 1500 Chevy pickup and the service engine soon light keeps coming on. If you stop and turn the engine off and restart it the light will go off. When you check the oil it is fine. But I think that the truck is using oil because you do have to add oil from time to time. But with a 20 year old truck that doesn't surprise me. Please tell me what I should do in regards to this matter.

Take the truck to autozone and have them run the diagnostic machine on it, but make sure to take it when the light is on. I hope that helps you out.

Readjust the Serpentine belt as the solution for the chirping sound. The check engine light could be a lot of things. Take it to the local Auto parts store and ask them to read the fault code for you. It is most likely the O2 sensor needing replaced and is an easy fix.

Turn the ignition key to the ON position without starting the engine.

Press the accelerator pedal three times quickly. The light will go off. It will return again in 3000 miles to remind you again.
