    nothing normal about that... if you live near an autozone stop in and have them scan the codes and it should hopefully tell you what the problem is

What would caused myJeep to burn excess fuel only averaging 9 miles to a gallon.

The first thing to check is the oxygen sensors. They are supposed to be changed every 65 thousand miles or so.

I have a 2007 Jeep Wrangler X with 53,700. I have started hearing what sounds like the engine valves rattling when I accelarate. What could be causing this problem

When was your last oil change? Is the proper viscosity oil in it? Modern engines do NOT like oil other than what over-paid engineers have designed it to use, and NO additives. Have the Oxygen sensors checked. They could be leaning out the engine. My personal vehicles get the oil changed every 3 to 6 thousand miles, without fail. I've spent thousands of hours trying to convince customers to change their oil more often than 10 to 15 thousand miles to no avail.

2008 traction control and engine light on

your powertrain warranty will cover the check engine light most likely as long as you are under a hundred thousand miles and the traction control light is most likely related to the engine light, Take your vehicle to your local chevrolet dealer, or if you are beyond the mileage have autozone or checker pull the Diagnostic trouble code out and it will lead you to the most likely cause of the problem

2000 Monte Carlo has a slow oil leak started noticing oil on the garage floor. I also noticed that if I park the car on a small incline such as my drive way the leak goes away at least there's no oil on...

as a mechanic I will say it can be multi things that can cause a leak. but when you say it goes away on slight incline that normaly means it is toward the front of the engine. I must say just because their is low miles does not mean a seal will not go out. I have replaced seals on cars with only 10,000. It is normaly caused from vibration or misplacment of seal. If you look under the car look for a wet spot on the engine or its components then email me back and I may be able to help you narrow it down. I would not freak out to bad though monte carlos are easy to work on and should not cost much to fix it.

My check engine light came on (blinking) I know that I am behind in oil changes, and I checked my oil, it is low. Will this cause the light to blink?

Your check engine light---indicates a possible system failure,nothing to do with oil
You have it checked for codes,diagnose the issue and repair

Your oil should never be low.
If you go as much as 5000 miles on an oil change and really drive it hard,you may loose a 1/2 qt in 5,000 miles

Engine light is on. I think it is the oxygen sensor on a 2000 Dodge Intrepid. How do I check or change it - I am mechanically inclined.

you can buy an inexpensive code scanner at any pepboys or autozone and most parts stores scan your computer then go from there bank 1 is the side of engine where the number 1 spark plug is located they usually go anywhere from 80-120 thousand miles

99 taurus running rough smells funny light flashing

The reason the check engine light is flashing instead of on steady is because it is missing bad and the car companies did this to tell you to stop the car as soon as possible to prevent damage. That is the only time the light will flash off and on instead of being on steady.
The cause is a little harder to diagnose. It could be a fouled spark plug, a bad plug wire, an injector, stopped up fuel filter. I can't remember if that car has the distributer or the coil packs but you could have a problem there. If you have never changed the spark plugs or fuel filter, it is well over a hundred thousand miles to do so now. They say to change them at one hundred thousand but 50 to 75 thousand is better and you will get better mileage. The fuel filter needs to be changed every 20 thousand miles now days because of all the cheap gas we have to put in the cars.
This is for mechanics or technicians. If no one out there believes me about the mileage on the fuel filter, then take the filter off and see what comes out the back. Looks like black water to me.
