    Ok thanks. I will do that. Had it checked once and they told me that I had either left the gas cap not fully on ,or filled the tank with the engine running. I have to pump gas into it slowly also or the pump will kick off. thatnks

    We need to see what the code is for, can you get to an auto zone or pep boys store, they will scan the computer and give you the codes that were received for free, and then you can get them back to me and I will help you to fix the problem.

I would first check the engine codes. This site has a basic pre-code reading check up to do, then at the top it has a link to code database, to check and decipher the codes. http://autorepair.about.com/od/troubleshooting/a/OBD_codes.htm
Hope this helps. Cheers.

WONT PASS SMOG.. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS NOT ON


Even after resetting the computer it may take several days to reset the internal workings of the computer. When i went for my E Test they asked me if my check engine lite was on in the last thirty days and if I reset the computer I was to run the car and come back in two weeks. I drive an 2005 car.

Poor gas milage?


Thinking you are getting poor gas milage,Your engine is running smooth,no misses,Engine runs smooth while accelerating up a hill, Still poor gas milage, Check your tire pressure. I have a 1999 Chevy Blazer 4x4, 4.3 Ltr. Auto, loaded. I have just over 154000 miles on it,I change my fluids every 5000 miles. Summer driving milage got real bad. I drive a Blazer hard. I tow a 16ft trailor usally loaded to the top with wood. Tires get hot in the summer, while in the winter, they stay mostly cool. Always check your air pressure.Most vehicals are equipted with radials now days, So if you think a tire looks low, check it, Usally they low. Usally in the winter months, nobody checks tire pressure. It really does make a difference. I went from 17.2 MPG to 19.5 MPG, while pulling the same trailor loaded with wood. I cut my own wood then stack it in my trailor to sell. I have Good Year Wranglers size: P235/75R/15 I just replace these with new ones. The old ones are going on my trailor. Counted milage on tires are 65000 Miles. Tires were rated at 40000 miles, Under normal use.

Have a 2001 chevy impala runs great on acceleration but rough on idle engine light is on gas milage is down replaced plugs and wires wondering if i have an issue with the oxygen sensor


your check engine light will give you information that will help solve the problem-get the computer scanned, go to a retail auto parts store, they all do it for nothing. Write down the actual codes, and come back here with the codes, you will get the help you need.

Hey if i change oil in my gmc will the service engine lite go off


The service engine light will not go off. The Oil life monitor is serperate from the SES light. You can reset the oil life system if that's the light you are talking about. Turn the key on, engine not running. Push the gas peddle to the floor and back up to the top 4 times on the 4th time hold it down. Watch the light it will start to flash, once it stops shut the key off for 10 seconds and restart the truck. If it comes back on try it again until it goes out.

Check engine lite stays on


If you disconnect the battery for 1 minute and reconnect it the check engine lite will reset. when you start your vehicle again the lite shouldn't be on unless the problem is still present. If the problem is still there the lite will come on again and you should take it in to a shop and have it diagnosed for engine codes and see what the problem is.
Try disconnecting the battery first though before you go spending great amounts of money on something that was probably just a minor glitch in the computer.

Bets of luck and let me know if this has helped you.
