Need my Liberty to pass smog I recently had codes po445 and po442, will this be a problem for passing smog if check engine light isn't on? Not sure if problem was resolved with new gas cap.


if your check engine light isn't on, they will still hook up a diagnostic code tester to your vehicle to see if the computer has picked up any problems, if the computer has picked up a problem, and you fixed the problem, then you can have the code removed from the system, with a diagnostic code tester.

I have a 1996 caprice classic _ v8 5.7 engine.. & my check engine light is on but the car seems to run perfectly fine.. I jus brought the car & plan on changing the spark plugs & wires, but...


you need to hook up a diagnostic code retrieving tool to the aldl < assembly line diagnostic link > this is located under the instrument panel on the drivers side, plug the tester into the link, then turn on the ignition key, but do not start the vehicle, the tester will cycle through the computer , and will retrieve any trouble codes that the computer has picked up, once you have recieved the trouble code or codes, write them down, and then turn off the ignition key, and unplug the tester, then compare the codes to the code booklet, and then it will tell you what the code stands for, and then you can check those areas to see what the problem is, also if you do not have a tester, a auto part store will check this for free, hope that this information has helped you.

Engine light came on and now it blinks off and on when its on solid car runs good but when it blinks car loses all its power wont hardly run and shakes


you need to hook up a diagnostic code retrieving tool to the aldl [ assembly line diagnostic link ] this is normally located on the drivers side under the instrument panel, it should be about 2 1/2 - 3 inches wide. the tester reteives the trouble codes that your car's computer has stored, you hook the tester up to the link, and turn your ignition key on, and the tester will start picking up the information that is stored in your computer, once it shows the code #s, write them down, and compare the # or #s to the diagnostic booklet that the tester comes with. [ follow the instructions of the tester] if you do not have a tester, your loacl auto part store can do this for you, normally free of charge.

When car gets to operating temp it looses spark


Secondary Spark Test This spark tester looks just like a spark plug. Attach the clip to ground and crank the engine to check for spark. 91052p10.jpg

This spark tester has an adjustable air-gap for measuring spark strength and testing different voltage ignition systems. 91052p11.jpg

Attach the clip to ground then crank the engine to check for spark. 91052p12.jpg

This spark tester is the easiest to use. Just place it on a plug wire and the spark voltage is detected; the bulb on the top will flash with each pulse. 91052p10.jpg

NOTE: The best way to perform this procedure is to use a spark tester (available at most automotive parts stores). Three types of spark testers are commonly available:
  • The Neon Bulb type is connected to the spark plug wire and flashes with each ignition pulse.
  • The Air Gap type must be adjusted to the individual spark plug gap specified for the engine.
  • The last type of spark plug tester looks like a spark plug with a grounding clip on the side, but there is no side electrode for the spark to jump.
NOTE: The last two types of testers allow the user to not only detect the presence of spark, but also the intensity of the spark. Orange/yellow is weak, blue is strong.
  1. Disconnect a spark plug wire at the spark plug end.
  2. Connect the plug wire to the spark tester and ground the tester to an appropriate location on the engine or frame.
  3. Crank the engine and check for spark at the tester.
  4. If spark exists at the tester, the ignition system is functioning properly.
  5. If spark does not exist at the spark plug wire, perform a diagnostic test of the ignition system using individual component diagnosis procedures.
