Engine light comes on

I just bought my mx6 three days ago and the engine light comes on after about ten min of driving i see that the temp gage is on high side of middle so it's not pinned on red but no leek from water pump also first day i got it home i noticed little smoke comming from front of the car after about 30 min of driving but none since although i have not gone on any long drives.little worried that i bought a money pit but it was aprivate sale so no hope getting money back if it is a water pump will engine light come on ? and will it cook the engine enoughf to make it cook?

Yes, if its is the water pumo the light will come on. it can do what you said. it also could be the thermostat, or even a cracked block. its difficult to say. find out what your laws are in your state. you may be able to take to small claims court, if was sold for more that actual value.

I would have codes checked for MIL. It sounds like it could have a bad Torque Converter Clutch solenoid. If thats the case when they put the code scanner on it it should throw a TCC sol. code. Autozone and O'Reilys will check codes free of charge.

Your radiator cooling fan will only come on when the engine temp has reached the point where it needs to have air forced through the radiator and thus bring engine heat back down to safe operating range. If your heater is not working check to make sure the fresh air vents aren't stuck open (are the controls stiff or not going all the way across?) check also that the heater shutoff valve lever which is usually situated on the firewall at the rear of the engine and can be found easily by tracing the hoses back from the thermostat housing aren't bent and/or seized up.

What could it be if the temp gage dont move after being driving for around ten mile


sounds like the coolant tempurature sensor is bad. Some cars will receive a check engine light when the sensor goes bad and some will not. good-day !

Check engine light on after oil change three days ago


Your "check engine" light is an emission light. Oil is fine. You have to find the code to check whats wrong. Usually an engine light is just a tiny problem, but in other cases it could be anything from a sensor, to a bad cat converter. With a check engine light on a vehicle will not pass smog tests. You can turn it off by unhooking your pos side to the battery for about 3 min. Then you will have to drive it 30 miles non stop for the computer to put the code back in and the light will come back on
