Check your lift pump, if bad the injection pump will run w/o lubrication. Pump will be restricted to using fuel to the engine. It will self destruct. Best advice is to get to a dealer and find it before some thing bad happens. Good luck!!

SOURCE: Service Engine Soon Light

no the coolant wouldn't cause the light to come on,and yes if you don't have the know how to buy and attach an obdii code reader to your truck then you will have to take it to a garage to be sure what the problem is........however the check engine light is a warning that something is experiencing a problem but correction of the problem doesn't have to be immediate, if you can't afford it or don't have the time to have it looked at right away.(keep in mind that with the light on your computer is in limp mode and you will see a drop in fuel mileage)But to get the light to go out you need to either disconnect the battery for 5-10 min or have someone check and reset the light.if you do the battery disconnect to reset it the light may not come back on for some time or may come on right away.last winter i had the light come on for an o2 sensor heater.........i reset the code and never saw it again. so if you can try the battery disconnect reset first if the light comes back on then take it to a garage.
hope this helps!

SOURCE: where is the switch for the bed lights on a f150

It should be on the same switch as your dash dimmer switch. Turn the dial on the dash light to make them as bright as they'll go, then there should be a little resistance and if you keep turning, it should turn on your bed lights on...

2009 pontiac wave doesn't upshift.

Check engine light on ? Or any other lights , wrench symbol light ? Your best bet would be to have a scan tool hooked up , check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's in all the control modules on the vehicle . A factory or professional scan tool , not a code reader .

Engine light comes on and engine jerks

do the preliminary checks first ---oil /water levels and engine temperature . Run fault codes to find what sensor put the engine /transmission in limp mode to protect the units.

Ford f150 overdrive light flashes

This usually means there is a transmission related fault. There is probably a error code stored, and your transmission may be in limp mode; usually 2nd gear only. I don't know if Autozone can read trans codes. This may be a dealer only repair. Have you checked your transmission fluid?

Saturn V6 2000 model with jerking. I can drive about 4 blocks and then the light pops on and says reduced power and I can go no more than 20 miles per hour if I am going a good speed. The steering wheel...

It is going into limp mode. There is a serious problem somewhere. Could be with the engine or transmission. You need to have the ECU scanned to see why it is going into Limp Mode. I suggest you seek professional help.

Limp home mode

You need to scan for engine trouble codes. Most parts stores will do this for free, and tell you what they mean and make recommendations on what to do. The 'limp mode' kicks in to prevent damage to the vehicle when the computer gets data that something is wrong.. When you shut it off, it's temporarily reset, but then the cars computer is signaling there is still a problem, and it goes back into limp mode. If you have any questions after getting the codes 'read' , post questions and code #;s here for help. Good luck.

'03 GMC 2500HD 4x4 problems

Take your positive cable off battery and wait a few minutes..This resets the computer and takes it out of limp mode.Theres been a lot of problems in the dash so if you can find an auto zone and have them scan it They'll do it for free.But as far as the lights my truck does the same thing. Just flick your fingers on the buttons and they should flash..The plug in the back of buttons was loose..
