The engine light can come on when a fault occurs, Or it gives the owner/driver warning of service interval overdue!

I have just bought a 1998 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4.0 inline 6 242 cu. It seems as if the power of the engine isnt going to the wheels. sometimes when I floor it there is a delay, also the check engine...

Hi there:

If the Check Engine Light comes on in the city but goes off on the freeway, then the fault is present during city driving conditions. Pay attention to whether or not the vehicle runs or drives any differently when the Check Engine Light illuminates. If vehicle performance does change, drive the car as little as possible and take it to be checked by a service professional as soon as possible. If there is no change in vehicle performance, you can drive home, but have it inspected as soon as possible. In this condition, you run a risk of the vehicle dying or not starting.

Additionally, iIf the Check Engine Light illuminates constantly during driving with no noticeable driving or performance problems, there is a permanent fault in the emission control system. When this happens, the computer that controls the emission system usually has a backup program that runs while the fault is present. (These backup programs are often referred to as "limp home" mode programs.) You should get the vehicle serviced as soon as possible, but in most cases, the vehicle will continue to operate, though you run a risk of it dying or not starting.

Are you try selft test, turn key (without start engine) On Off, On Off, On and count check light and pauses in order to read codes. Three flases and pause and two flases measn a 32 code. Note this and send us for other details.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

P1633 code

The code indicates the battery at some point dropped below 9 volts, take your car to your local auto parts store and have them clear the code, check the battery and alternator. Most places they do this free of charge.

Check engine light - low antifreeze

Chanses are the shop did chk. the coolant in the resavor and probly top it off but did not chk.the radiator witch was low and it drew out of resavor to fill radiator witch is the correct way to fill the radiator, just fill it back up with 50/50 (no water.) I don't think that would make the light come on, as you have a low coolant light for that. For piece of mind have it scaned to find out way the chk.engine light came on.

I have problem with my 1995 dodge ram when I drive more then 4 hrs it starts chaking and it slows down. It does not turns off but I cannot run it farter than 30mph after that.

I am assuming the engine maintenance has been kept up. The fuel filter changed and tune ups , oil change has been performed in accordance with the Owners Manual.
Does the check engine light come on?
Is the transmission fluid in good condition ?
If so, The catylic convertor could be the failure The cat is getting very hot and then starts to clog. The engine is not able to release the exhuast gas from the engine. The back pressure from the exhuast is choking the Comustion Chamber with poor air .
I would have the exhuast system checked.

2005 chevy silverado still will not start

i would have to take an educated guess and say its the fuel pump, but the first thing to do is chk. fuel pressure if pump runs, canyou hear it when you turn the key to the on position? if not chk. fuse if thats ok, chk. relay should be under hood. turn key on and listen for a click if you hear a click than relay is working, but its not the same for fuel pump they can sound like there running but it might not be putting out any pressure thats ware fuel pressure chk. comes in. now if fuel pressure chks. out ok than its most likely electrical. if you know of someone around your area that would scan the computer for you would help, sense you said chk.engine light was on, might give you a good idea whats up.
