Run your car up to your local AutoZone and ask them to scan with an OBD2 scanner. they can tell you if there is a problem or they can clear the code for you for absolutely Free - No charge! That's Right! Making the trip should not be a problem, just do not forget to get it checked if there is a sensor going out though.

Service engine soon lights keep coming on and i check oil and water often


The service engine soon light is a tell tale light that reports to the driver if there are sensor problems with the engine. It looks at coolant temperature, Throttle position, altitude, outside air temperature, fuel mixture and other things to make your car run good and smooth with many years of reliability.

Car won't start--stopped running while driving appears to be fuel pressure did not overheat--trac off light followed by the service engine soon light came on while driving and within a couple miles the car...


Check the fuel pressure.
If no pressure, then check for power at the pump when cranking. If not, it is the fuel pump relay. You an pull it and put a jumper across the secondary leads to get it to run.

Check Engine Light on at 64K miles


As a Infiniti Service advisor for 5 years I can tell you a couple of things. First, check your gas cap. Make sure it is tightened past three clicks. The Service engine light only comes on because of emissions related issues. Generally if the gas cap is loose then vapors will seep out of the filler neck and the appropriate pressure inside the fuel cell will not be acheived and the computer will trip the light. If you had recently filled up before the light came on, then after the cap is tightened it may take a day or so to go off on its own. Other than that the next most common cause of the light is the O2 sensor(s). They normally do not completely fail but have hiccups so to speak. Their purpose is to measure the amount of oxygen in the exhaust gas, and if one or more of the sensors measures too much or too little it will cause the light to trip. The computer will automatically adjust the air fuel mixture to compensate for these diffenciencies, so it is best to have it checked and cleared. I would highly recommend a tune up as they are generally needed to be done at 30K and 60K. They will change your plugs, air filter, fuel filter, clean your throttle chamber to remove buildup, and sometimes run a fuel system cleaning procedure. Since the Check Engine light issue is always an emissions related issue, there is no need to panic, and you will not do harm by driving with it on. I have had many a customer drive the car 100k plus miles with the light on. But eventually you will want to get it looked at.

yes...they do program the computers to come on or give a "service engine soon" light so that you will bring them back into the dealership....if you have access to an obd2 diag tool you can reset the codes yourself
