Check engine light came on.

I am visiting in Lebanon OR and live in Everett WA. Can I go home and then check it or should I check it somewhere close?

If it comes on just a short time after you fill with gas, it's probably a loose gas cap. Many mechanics will advise a client to grease the seal on the gas cap before going in for an emissions test. Buy a new cap.

Also you could stop by any Quickie Parts store and have them Check the code on the Check Engine light and it might be something you have the know how to fix Quickly Most of the codes that will show up will be caused by Vaccum Leaks or Egr valves. Like the previous submission as long as you watch the fluids and its not overheating or something you should be fine.

I'd wait until you get home. Just keep an eye on everything else, such as accessories, oil and volt gauges, etc.

How do I reset computer on a 2000 Nissan frontier


Why would you keep throwing parts at it and guessing what is wrong? Take it somewhere that has a scanner and see what is setting the check engine light. It could be a speed sensor, or anything for that matter. AutoZone and I am sure there are others will scan the code for free. If you live close to me I would scan it for you.

Mazda of Everett is a good dealership and we work hard to take care of our customers. I work for them and am trying to figure out why every time we do a Google Search for Mazda of Everett an old Yelp...


Sounds like your site has been "hijacked" by someone who has a grudge against your dealership. I suggest you report this to whomever is hosting your site. If your self-hosting I'd advise you contact a security consultant.

Engine stalls when shifting into any drive gear.


It sounds like your idle air control valve could be going out on you.  The extra stress from being in gear can cause the car to stall out if the IAC valve isn't opperating properly.  The IAC is attached to the throttle body and is normally held on by two screws.  IAC valves are relatively cheap from AutoZone and easy to replace.  That would be my best guess based on your description.  Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!

Flashing check engine light


If its an orange light its a service engine soon light, the car can be driven, if its a red check engine light DO NOT DRIVE because of risk to damage the engine. However if there is an auto zone close by they will check the light for free. Then I can work with you from there. Good Luck
