The check engine light indicates a problem, many times the car will run fine, or seem to, but u should get the codes read to determine what's wrong, and correct the problem, as it can lead to other troubles. Not sure about parts stores in Australia, but in the US they offer free car checks of trouble codes when the engine light is on. They plug a hand held scan tool into a port under the dash, and 'read' any codes stored in the cars computer. Write down the numbers for your records, and ask them what the codes mean, and how to fix the problem. If u have any questions, post them here w/ the codes for help.

My RODEO RA 2007 has the engine management light on and no speedo any ideas on the problem


run the fault codes and check for problems in the transmission. Engine lights also cover problems in transmissions ,not just the engine. I would look for a problem VSS sensor.

I have a 2001 automatic pontiac bonneville ssei supercharge and the check engine light came on and I checked fluids and transmission fluid is in my antifreeze what is my problem


A lot of automatic cars use the radiator for cooling the ****** fluid. It's possible that you have a hole inside the endtanks on the radiator, that is allowing the fluid to mix.

Read the description, you'll see the sizes for the transmission oil cooler connections mentioned.

I have a 2001 monte carlo. there is oil in my radiator. does anyone know the problem could be with my car? my car runs fine.


Are you sure it is oil and not just old corroded dex cool? Just asking because about the only way to get oil in the radiator is through a bad head gasket or cracked head which will usually cause the vehicle to run poorly. Here is a few pics of what dexcool can become. jsmes1027_2.jpgjsmes1027_3.jpg

2002 2500HD is leaking oil, and no visible signs, idle ruff. Engine oil is leaking. This just started today, no check engine light came on. Oil pressure is 24 now


If your loosing oil and there is no sign on the ground, check your radiator fluid, it may be leaking from the oil cooler which is apart of the radiator. Good luck and keep me posed. Be glad to help.

How to check transmission fluid on 2001 isuzu rodeo


There is no dipstick on your auto trans. Checking it is a real PITA The trans pan has 2 plugs in it. The one on the very bottom is the drain. The one in the corner, up higher in a recess is the check/fill plug. To check, the engine must be warm and running, tranny in P. Remove the plug and fluid should dribble out. If it doesn't it's low, fill until it dribbles out, while engine is running. Obviously the truck must be on a lift or up on jackstands.
