SOURCE: nox sensor. What is it? How much does it cost to repair?

Well, it could be either and oxygen sensor or a knock sensor.

Oxygen sensor monitors O2 levels in the exhaust.

The knock sensor listens for engine pinging and adjusts the timing as needed.

Prices vary on repair. I would recommend having the owner of the car either show you something from a repair shop that has the sensor name written, or take the car to a parts store that offers free code scanning and see what comes up.

SOURCE: mercedes clk 270 cdi check engine light

hi, unfortunately this is one of them how longs a piece of string things, you could purchase a code reader reset the error code but, what you have to think of is what caused it to do it in the first place, accelerating to hard should not cause an error ( i do it all the time in my car lol ) but it might be related to the 02 sensor getting to much unburnt fuel passing it which would cause the engine light to come on, though if the car is running as normal i doubt that will be the issue, i would myself on a car like that take it to the main dealer and get them to check it out, as buying an inexpensive code reader might not cut the mustard with this one, and parts being as dear as they are for merc's i would play on the safe side, spend a few bucks to save a load...sorry not much help

I have a 2006 Equinox and the check engine light came on three weeks ago and my service guy told me it was not a problem and to replace the gas cap which I did. The light never went off and now he is...

Sounds like the big repair is the camshaft actuator.

You didn't list a code for the O2 sensor so I'm not sure if you didn't relay the info?

All of those are really common problems for that vehicle and motor. It is unlikely that driving it for three weeks caused additional problems. I would bet the check engine light initially came on for any one of the problems that they discussed with you and the other issues came up as pure coincidence since none of them are specifically related and all of them are, once again, very common.

I can tell you that it is not uncommon for us to have customers come into the shop I work at with check engine lights that have been on for years with no major issues as a result.

I know its unfortunate to have to have such a large repair bill but I am confident one problem did not cause another and that this scenario could have played out many ways.

For example you could have brought the vehicle in three weeks ago for the check engine light and they could have found and repaired a bad t-stat. The next week the check engine light could have came back on for the O2 sensor. A week later it could have came back on for the Cam actuator. It can and does happen and I know its frustrating for you and the other customers that this can happen to.

Without knowing what there schedule was its hard to say if there is any fault with the repair facility except that they blindly told you to replace the gas cap in the hopes that the problem would go away (BTW gas caps are also a pretty common issue so you may have taken care of that problem before it became a problem). A shop is in the business to make money and if a customer calls with a concern of a check engine light I want to see it as soon as possible so I can make money!

If the customer pressures me into possible causes I will let them know everything that it could be that I have run into in the past. Once they become aware that blindly diagnosing a check engine light is not good and can be more costly than to just have it diagnosed and repaired they are usually happy to bring it in and have it checked out.

On the bright side the t-stats are also known to stick shut on these engines (V-6) and cause the motor to overheat which in turn usually causes the head gaskets to go bad. That's roughly a $3000 (yes three thousand dollar) repair bill. So at least you avoided that repair.

I hope that helps with some of the frustrations you are having. I hope everything goes well with the repairs.

How much should it cost to fix an intake valve on a 2002 chevy trailblazer LT, I was told it is a 24 hour job, so it is expensive is this true? I went to have the oil changed and was told I needed an...

The labor sounds like it is in line with the standard labor guide if your Trailblazer is a 4X4. I can only guess how the repair went from oil change to intake valve. Was the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" Light on when you took it in? Did they tell you that your engine has a misfire that will require the replacement of a valve to fix? If so, this sounds reasonable. Otherwise, I don't know what to tell you without knowing all the details.

Hi Team, Good Afternoon. I purchased a 2005 Toyota Corolla 1 month ago (Used Car). As soon as I got the car I got the check Engine light. I took the car to Toyota of Irving and they told me that it was...

Did you buy this from a dealer? if so, you should have taken it back ASAP I dont know why you didnt have the Toyota Dealer fix the car, now your in the middle of a mess, getting 2 shops involved, and the car still has a problem. When you bought the car, whoever you bought it from, knew there was a problem, cleared the code and it took a while for the check engine light to come back on. So now you will just have to pay someont to fix the car. The trans shop told you it needed a converter and solenoid, the problem is still there, so make it their problem. I think you need someone who knows toyota . theres no recall that I know of. Recalls are free, anyhow. . ecm is warranteed 8 years or 80k miles. Have the dealer check it out. Have them Check Bulletin TC008-04 and T-SB-0378-08

ABS Light

Turn the ignition off then restart the engine. Is the light off? If yes, start driving. Is the light on? If yes, you have a faulty wheel speed sensor. You will have to find out Which one is bad. If you live near an AUTOZONE, they offer free diagnostic.
