I'm buying a used truck/SUV. It disclosed an engine light code p0128. My question is it more expensive to purchase parts & repair myself. Or would it be worth having a mechanic fix it & look it over?


It depends on the vehicle. 9 times out of 10 this code means the thermostat has failed, of course I'd try that first. I do not know what mechanical skills you possess or what type of vehicle you're asking , so I can't really answer the second part of the question. Some tstas are easy, other ones require a lot of work.

P0068, P0171, and P0446 and new ones down below


-I hate to say that but absolutely NO. If you don't know much about car. All these codes are emission code.
P0068 Mean Throttle position sensor.
P0171 Mean system too lean.
P0446 Mean evaporator emission control system has not correct flow
P0507 Mean Idle air control is too hight.
P0116 Mean engine coolant temperature.

Need to have a mechanic to check one by one to determine which part is effect before replace it.

Good luck

2004 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON


So did you check your engine? I don't mean to be a ****, but these warning lamps have been around for about 30 years now. They mean pretty much what they say. Some of them even have little pictures for those that can't read. Whenever they come on while you are driving, it means that there is a malfunction in your engine management system that needs to get fixed.
Continuing to drive the vehicle with these warning lamps on can potentially damage some REALLY EXPENSIVE parts of your car. I highly recommend that you get your engine checked.

Check engine light on, oil shortage


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. There are many things that can cause your check engine light to come on. When it does come on, this means the computer has detected a problem with the vehicle. Every car has this system. Anytime it is on, you can usually get a code number off the computer scan. The hookup is under the dash in most cars. You can buy a cheap one for around 50 dollars at most auto part stores. If you do buy one, you may need to find what each code means. If you don't own one or you can't get to one, you can take it to Autozone or Advanced Auto Parts to get your vehicle scanned. Most places do not charge for the scan. Autozone and Advanced Auto Parts do not charge when your check engine light is on. They will be able to scan it for you and give you the codes. They will let you know what it says and what parts you will need as well. if you ask. If your check engine light is flashing, this means there may be internal engine failure. If this is your case, get it scanned as soon as possible. The longer you go with the light on, the greater the chance you have to make the problem worse. Some of the newer vehicles has this system already built in. You will need to know sequence though, to make the code appear. You need to find out where the oil is leaking before you can fix it. Any ideas?

you can take the car to your local auto parts store and usually they can check your engine diagnostics code and tell you what part you need to replace. or what is making the light come on by the engine code the computer stored.. good luck!

Service engine soon light


a check engine light or service engine soon just means you are not meeting emissions. definitely not a big deal.
go to autozone and have them do a free scan and get the fault codes.

Also, try this first - disconnect the battery for 1/2 hour and see if it turns the light off. Drive for 10 miles and it may run rough until it relearns your engine controls.
let us know results.

Where is the oil pump on a 2004 Dodge Neon?


Oil light that comes on while in idle means the oil pump screen is clogged or damaged, cause low oil pressure to the engine. That part is only $30. It could be a bad oil pump though, if that is the case the pump can run you $100. Either way you need to get it fixed ASAP it can cause major damage to the engine in a very short period of time!
