SOURCE: 98 Honda Passport check engine light on. Need to drive home..

You should be able to take it to any chain auto parts shop and get a free engine scan. Heck, even your unreliable little shop should be able to hook up a hand scanner for free or nearly so (def not more than $5).

I'm betting you'll get a P0401 Code - EGR Flow Insufficient. That's a common problem for the 3.2 Honda/Isuzu engines. If that's the case DO NOT blow $200 on a new valve. A $10 gasket and a $4 can of air intake cleaner are all you need.

Even if it's not the 401, the check engine light is typically not a HUGE concern as long as the rest of your gauges are within usual limits and the vehicle operates normally. You're usually good to go until you can get to a reliable mechanic. Just don't put it off too long - that's when the serious problems develop.

SOURCE: Oil Pressure Warning light

Sounds like possiblity of the oil pump being bad, and is setting off other sensors on your car.

SOURCE: Engine will die

There is a Communication problem between the Transmission Control Module (TCM) and the Engine control module. That is the bad news and is why it's shutting down the engine. 
The good news is i believe there is a TSB recall on the 2004 - 2007 chevy aveo for the P0700 problem so it should be covered under warranty. 
Believe the TSB# 05-06-01-030D
Good luck and hope this helps and hope it's not a bad ECM. Check the wire harness to the ECM and TCM, look for broken wire or the harness it self gone apart.

SOURCE: 2004 subaru forester, 99,000 miles. Check engine

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.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the great suggestion . I'll have Autozone read the codes on Monday. Thanks again!"

The warning light means the engine oil pressure is low, not necessarily that the oil level is low.
The problem could be the pressure switch, or you really could have low oil pressure.
Driving the car with low oil pressure will damage the engine.

What is the check gauges light


CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance
