Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. First step is to find out what code turned the light on.

    Any independent service center should be able to check it for you. Or you can go to Autozone and have them check the codes for you. Let me know what they are and I can give you advice.

Where is my thermostat located on my 2002 Lexus gs300


Do you need to replace it? It's within the cooling system and usually in a hose just off the engine block. You can follow the radiator piping back to the engine. But you're better off referring to a repair manual

2004 trailblazer, after getting gas,check gages lite came on, then turned off. truck running rough and after going over 40 miles per hr, service engine lite flashes.


Sounds like there was water in the gas, which would make the engine run rough, service engine lite might go on. Try adding an octaine additive to gas.

If check engine light goes off then there is a trouble code stored. You'll need to retrieve the code w/ a scan tool and follow the proper diagnosis.

We have a 1993 Lexus gs300 it won't start, ran great when it was turned off has plenty of fuel, turns over fine.


Try check the engine control unit.. It's located at passenger side under the plastic cover food step side wall.. I repair more then 30 units of this GS300 n ARISTO all with the ECU failure if check everything with the engine n sensor.. Also check if there is fuel supply coz some model build with hi-low fuelpump control module.

1999 Lexus RX check engine light - lexus rx300


If it hasn't been scanned fo codes, the most common problem relates to gas caps. Evaporative emissions systems. When a cap gets old it will not function correctly. Consequently the check engine light will come on. Do not buy an after market cap. My experience with aftermarket caps have been very poor. The majority of times I tried after market caps on customer cars, I got return problems. Factoy caps seem to resolve that issue. Once you replace the cap, the light should go out in a few cycles. It's a cheap investment if it's the original cap anyway, it'll save you the cost of scanning and the gamble is almost 70% right.

ENVOY FUEL GUAGE PROBLEMS--- GAS GAUGE DOES NOT REGISTER ON FILL UP--- CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON WHEN YOU FILL UP -----THEN GOES OUT AFTER 1ST. 20 TO 40 MILES. BEN GOING ON FOR LONG TIME ONLY WORRY WHEN...


GMC sent me a letter saying that gas guage not working has been a problem and they will fix and pay half.
Also my mechanic says that it is common to get a check engine lite when you add gas to tank, especially when you fill it. Sometimes I will take off gas cap and let air out then replace cap and the check engine lite will go off. (usually). Nothing to worry about.
