Take it to autozone and have them tell you what the check engine light code is (it's free!).

You can get a FREE engine scan at Autozone, Advance, and Oreilys. This will explain the engine light. Most likely you have a temperature sensor that is bad or your thermostat is stuck wide open.

I noticed you talk in KMs instead of Miles so you are probably in another country. This may mean you will need to go to a different autoparts store or garage who can scan your car. Your car may be stuck in the "cold" cycle which sets the throttle response and other driveability parts.

In a foreign country, you may not have the Pollution controls we have in the States so some of the responders may give you solutions for parts that are not on your vehicle. If you have catalytic converters, they can clog and give you some of the problems, but a cold engine usually means the coolant is circulating full blast and the thermostat and Electric cooling fan are over cooling your motor.

The oil pump is inside the oil pan on the bottom of the engine on most models. I doubt it would have anything to do with a burning smell.

code 15 is ignition output signal, an electrical problem. The engine computer sees no spark signals coming from the igniter. This is a good job for a Honda mechanic who isn't afraid of electronics.

Car has gas smell when heater is on


my question is do you smell gas when outside the vehicle? chances are it is pulling "fresh air" from outside the vehicle and might be pulling vapors due to thew fact you have a gas leak under the hood. check your engine while running and if a gas leak is seen. turn it off imediately and repair it. do not drive it until then. happy holidays

Can I use my didgital multimeter to test my check engine light on a 93 mercury topaz?


I dont beleive you can BUT you can check the sensors(O2,map,knock,tps etc) that are setting off the check engine light with your multimeter.You have to find the manufacturers output specs on each sensor(which unfurtunately I dont have).You put your ground lead to ground and your positive lead to the voltage wire on each sensor (with multimeter on voltage setting) If you take the car to AutoZone or Pepboys they'll scan the check engine code to ID the sensor for FREE

Check engine light on in 93 Lexus


The only way to check why the check engine light is on is to have autozone or a mechanic put a scanner on the car and read the engine codes. This will tell you exactly what is wrong. Many part stores will test it for free. Mechanics will charge about $40 But you will definately know exactly what the problem is.

If gauge is fine and car smells hot. It is probably due to plugged exhaust unless you have a wire laying on the exhaust manifold and it's melting.
