The Exhaust Emission Light can come on if the car is driven slowly over short distances.It will not happen on cars driven at speed. A short trip of ten miles at over 3000 revs should reset the warning light,although it may not go out for a couple of days after you have tried it . Hope this helps and saves a bill at the local dealer. JK

Hi Angela,
It sounds like it could be a problem with the catalytic converter. If it is this, as well as the continued loss of power you may also notice that the exhaust emissions start to occasionally haves quite a strong and horrible smell.

If your local mechanic has an OBD lead he/she will still be able to plug it into the car and read the fault code from the cars ECU (computer thingy!). You don't need to wait for the light to come on again as the fault code should still be in the memory of CPU.

If your local garage does not have the correct OBD software for your car, you can still go to the stealership, ahem I mean BMW dealership (hehe..!) as reading the fault code is quick and very cheap to do. At least you will know if it the catalytic converter at fault, (I hope it is not as this one can be expensive to replace, sorry). Good Luck Angela.

I have a 2001 hyundai sonata, I have a light that is coming on, in the manual it says gas, exhaust light, what is that?


emmission light.
there is a small vapour leak in the fuel sytem of your car.
this doesn`t mean your leaking liquid gas -only a small amount of fuel vapours.
the emmission system of today`s vehicle are very sensitive, and when the car`s computer monitors this, it will display this information thru your dash warning light.
yor car is still safe to drive, but eventually you will have to fix this problem in order to pass a drive -clean -emmission test. See your service repair shop for further diagnostics..

Emmissions light has come on?


you need to get it scanned, i assume "emissions light" is your check engine light, or the "visit emissions workshop" message, which means, go to a shop and get it checked. The coolant disappearing means you probably have a leak. Another reason to check it,
