SOURCE: 2004 chevy trailblazer 73,000 miles

the first place to start is the flashing engine lite. that means cylinders are not firing at all or improperly and driving it like that for even short period could cause heavier damage. particularly valves and cat converter(s) the computer really needs to be scanned for codes in order to proceed. did the oil lite come on before or after engine quit. after engine quit would be normal cause it stalled. its possible that it needs spark plugs and/or coils. or more

SOURCE: like 3 days after i got my oil changed in my 2006

This is an idication of a severe oil leak. Check the oil level in your engine to see if there is any in it. Add to the full mark and return to the oil change shop and ask them to see where the leak is. Do not operate without oil. Severe engine damage will occur. Hope this helps Moe

SOURCE: in my 1997 Chevy Lumina 3.1L the CHECK ENGINE SOON light is on

If it was a stock rebuild the original PCM settings should be fine check all the fuses and wiring possibly something was damaged or left loose this stuff happens to the best of us.next the SES light needs to be reset with a scan tool make sure to record all codes stored in the computer as this will aid in diagnosing any problems. the car must be ran thru a drive cycle usually normal driving conditions of say a mix of city and highway driving until the PCM relearns all parameters like o2 sensors emissions sensors ect... this can also be checked with the scan tool in the readiness moniters these monitors will be reset every time the SES light is reset. when pumping the gas pedal 3 time you are just resetting the maintenance light.

SOURCE: A light comes on in my car that says oil pressure

If the light is only turning on during acceleration or deceleration and then goes off, this is normal. If the light is constant, and you are sure you have oil that is up to the "full" or "max" level on the dipstick while hot, then it might point to a faulty oil pump or worn gaskets that will no longer prevent the oil from staying in place in the engine. Is this light accompanied by a check engine light. If so what is the code. You may also have a faulty oil sensor. Hope this helps

Check Engine light on and flashing, engine running rough


When the Check Engine light flashes it means there is a significant emissions problem detected and it needs to be fixed very soon. Continuing to drive with this condition will destroy the catalytic converter. You may have gotten debris in one or more of the injectors when the gas got low.
The first thing to do is get the codes read and find out what the computer is reporting bad.

I have a 97 Chevy Lumina. It has 276,*** miles on it. I bought it used 4 months ago. It was running excellent then the service engine soon light, low coolant light, and change oil soon light started coming...


The fact that the oil was low would not be from the oil pump, but from wear in the engine. If it is not smoking when you start it or as you drive, you can probably keep it running by just keeping the oil level checked at each fuel fill-up. As for the car shutting off, you didn't say if the engine seized or got real hot. A low oil pressure problem should have triggered a warning light before the problem got to the point where you lost the engine.

If the car ran after you added the oil, you got lucky and need to always check it.

Low idle on chevy colorado


The best thing to do is run a trouble code check on it.
Other than that check for a vaccum leak, the EGR valve, or the idle air control valve.

My 2004 Colorado 4x4 is at 91K and running better than I would have expected. It seemed to break in at 80K. Still getting 21 mpg. Haven't changed spark plugs yet. No major repairs have been needed except for the power steering pump I'm about to replace because of a squeal.
