If the check engine light is on you need to have it scanned for trouble codes next.
The trouble codes will direct a mechanic where to look for the problems.
What do you mean by ticks ? A relay ticking, or the hot exhaust making noise ?

SOURCE: SUBARU AUTOMATIC GEAR BOX CAN NOT CHANGE IN DRIVE SHIFT

Check the transmission fluid level. If it is low, fill it. Otherwise, if you happen to have a Subaru Select Monitor or equivalent, then you can read the fault codes for the 4EAT transmission and it will tell you which internal solenoid valves are sticky. At that point you can either add a quart of stuff that says it solves transmission problems and hope for the best, disassemble the transmission and change the problem valves, swap the transmission for one that works, or take it to someone to have it repaired.

SOURCE: CHECK ENGINE FLASHES WHENEVER I DRIVE THE CAR.

The Check Engine light usually means the car has an emission system problem. Diagnosis requires an OBD2 scanner.

But first, check your gas cap. Is it loose? How good is the O-ring or gasket? A poor seal is the most common Check Engine cause.

Good luck.

It probably is the converter. The check engine light has nothing to do with maintenance at all, nor does it really directly concern the engine. The check engine light comes on for emmission purposes. Such as converter, loose gas cap and all kinds of sensors.

SOURCE: '98 subaru wont shift from 1st unless rpms are high- morning only

When you first start driving it usually takes atleast 4 miles to warm the transmission to operating temperature. The temp of the motor may say it is warmed up, But, the trans fluid and differential fluid only begins to warm as you drive and the parts are actually working. THe computer has sensors that keep the trans from shifting to OD until the temp is up as not to add stress to the motor until warmed properly. Hope this helps and have a good day.

Drop in to an Autozone, or Pep Boys, or similar big parts store & they will usually scan for codes free. This will hopefully eliminate all the guess work, or at least point everyone in right direction for better diagnosis. If not obvious from codes what the problem is, get back to us and we'll help you out.

1988 Buick Century 3.8 stalling issue starts back up. fuel pump/filter replaced it stalls out randomly at all driving conditions. I am stumped on this one. anyone have help for me on this?


Does it seem to do it more once it runs for a bit? It could be a bad DIS module. They are known to fail once they get hot. Either that or the ignition switch located at the top of the base of the column.

Once undone the light assembly should pop offf from the outside of the trunk lid, then you can access the bulbs, and get a new one at the auto oarts store

I always wonder why some mechanics just cant say they dont know.I drive a 2001 century every day with 93,000 miles on it.It developed a ticking noise at 80,000 that i diagnosed as a lifter noise.I change my own oil and I put a quart of auto trans fluid in the engine oil and drove it for a week before i changed the oil and the noise went away and stayed gone.This is a trick I learned from my dad who is also a mechanic and shop owner for 35 years.Give it a try and let me know.Good luck.

How to replace a coolant level sensor, 2000 buick century


The coolant level sensor is located on the radiator. If you are looking at the engine from the front of the car it will be on the left side. There will some kind of clip holding it in the radiator. Removed the clip and pull the sensor out. You will lose coolant so try to swap it out quick or drain some of the coolant out. Once new sensor is installed, install clip to keep the sensor in place and reconnect the wires to the sensor. Crank the engine and make sure the coolant level is full. This should correct your problem.
