Not without having the computer scanned for trouble codes. If it is OBD 1 you can do it yourself with a paper clip. There is a plug under the dash you jumper to make the light flash the codes. If it is OBD2 you have to use a scanner to read the codes.
You can research "check GM codes" online for the procedure.

SOURCE: Chevy truck running rough 150,000 miles

Find out why the engine light is coming on, it is the info u probably need to fix the running rough problem. Most auto parts stores will read the codes stored in your trucks computer for free, write them down, and ask what they mean and how to correct the problem. If u need more info, return to this site w/ codes for further help.

SOURCE: ESC light came on when driving - then check engine light

Likley there is a misfire in one of the cylinders. Usually due to worn out sparkplugs or wires. A check by the local mechanic, using his/her computor will pinpoint the problem. Or go to your local auto supply store & purchase the little computor to connect to your car computor (under dash at steering wheel). This will allow you to turn off the light. Cost is about $170.00 (Can.)
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: I have a 1995 Chevy Lumina with the ''Low Oil'' light on.

may be the oil sending unit is bad
may be the oil pump
is there any noise in the engine?
have the oil pressure check at a repair shop to make sure you have enough oil pressure
if it's ok then have the shop replace the switch while they have the old one out to check the pressure

I have a 1995 Pontiac trans sport. I was driving and van all of a sudden died. Some people a telling me it is the transmission others say maybe not because they dont understand why my front tires have...


Hello
The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

I have a 1995 chrysler cirrus when im at the light the car starts jerking and sometime it shuts off.


IT WOULD BE NICE IF YOU TOLD US THE ENGINE SIZE;STRAIGHT OR AUTO TRANS,AC ETC.
The 3.9 LT V6 engines back then had bad lower distributor/camshaft bushing. IF your car missfires-is hard to start-or tries to run backwards upon shutdown it may be this.
Engine will have to be put on analyzer(to show vaariable timing caused by bushing)=easy to Dx and may be covered by warranty .

1995 Chevy Silverado will not start Full charge on battery. Panel lights and head lights come on. When I turn the key there is nothing, no clicking or other sounds. The engine will not crank over.


Hi, sounds like a problem with the interlock switch. With manual trans, it's above the clutch pedal. With auto trans, it's in the range sensor on the tranny.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Mitzy fto 1995 no gear


The Mits automatic trans of the mid 1990's are not the most reliable. In fact the number one problem with the Mits Galants of that era is the auto trans dies. Unless you have a 4WD trans I believed the Eclipse used the same trans as the Galant.

This is the kind of thing you have to pretty much take to a trans shop. One word of caution; do not let them take your trans from the car to figure out what is wrong with it unless you are planning on having them fix it. This is a typical ploy of trans shops. They get your car in and get your approval to pull the trans to check it out. You will not get your car back together unless they rebuild the trans so call around and ask about the price of having the trans rebuilt before you take it anywhere so you have an idea who is going to rip you off so you can avoid them right up front. With that said..... Assuming the transmission is filled with the correct amount of transmission fluid you should know that the major weakness with the the 7th generation Galants (1994-98 Galants) is the auto trans fails. Generally you will see a gradual loss of function. First it will stop going into some gears, then it will not even move the car at all for a short waiting period. In the end it just wont move the car period. Ultimate recourse is to either rebuild the trans or replace with a manual unit from a junk yard. Information on doing a 5 speed swap can be found here: http://www.thegalantcenter.net/showthread.php?t=38309 Infomration on galants in general can be found under the 7g section of http://www.thegalantcenter.net

I have a 1995 chevy camaro. when i shift in reverse it changes out and goes into reverse but when i hit the gas petal to back up the car goes nowhere.


check trans fluid when the engine is running and at normal operating temp. if it shifts and drived normally in forward, it may be time to go to the tranny shop.

Enhanced Traction System Warning Light (TRAC OFF)


Sometimes it's a complaint with the ABS braking system. If it comes on and you have no other problems and stays on for while, check your brakes. I have had this issue before and had my brakes replaced. They were worn but for some reason were not squeaking.
