The ECT/power light is controlled by the ECT switch on the console. WHat it does is stretches the shift point from 1-2 and 2-3 when you are carrying a large load, or towing something. For maximum fuel economy, the light should be switched off.

When I started my car this morning the drive lights were all flashing and the engine light was on. there was a faint rattle but other than that the engine seems to be running fine.


Drive light on or flashing with the engine running means a transmission problem. Often it's a bad sensor. Many auto parts stored will read the odd code for free, in the hope you'll buy pat from them. Don't delay diagnosed, even if you have go pay a deal er to read the code.

I have several questions: Number 1 the initial minutes of my premio (corona) D4 2-litre engine raves at above the 1500 rev per minute but eventually returns to less than 1000 after some minutes;...


George,
1) Yes It is normal for corona Engines to have that high rev when the engine is still cold. It automatically adjusts to the Normal Rev/min when the engine gets warm so don't worry about that.
2) The Buttons are use when you are running on road. PWR means Power meaning that you lock the car in gear Five while sprinting. MNL stands for manual transmission.
3) Econ tries to show you that you are using a higher gear like say 5, therefore your fuel consumption is now being economized and thus low consumption. Actually, its always good if you drive your car with that light on coz it saves on your fuel. It get on automatically.

Don't forget to vote my solution if it was of help to you.

My pwr light came on this morning. What does this mean?


The POWER light just means the transmission is in it's performance mode, there should be a button to switch from normal/economy mode to power mode, I don't have a sportage in front of me right now, I believe the button is on the dash between the steering wheel and center console area.

Check it (remember rated this help) Good luck.

Engine light came on this morning. Staying on solid. Seems to be running fine. I put gas in after i saw the engine light on. It's still on. Tire pressures seem fine. Manual says it has something to do with...


If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.

A solid light can mean anything.

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain off. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially go
