    Check the oil , filter and pug. to verify and they are right so no loss of oil. Does the light just stay on? Does it flash in a numbered pattern? Does the light tell you what system like door open? The first tech is correct you need to hook a scanner to it to see what the code is. Most auto parts stores will do that as a free service. That is a starting point just because it says o2 sensor does not mean always the o2 sensor is bad. There may be a problem making the o2 sensor read out of specified parameters. You will still have to figure out the problem. When the recall was done the tech may have not followed the procedure 100% and it cause a code also. If it's possible you need to notify the shop where the work was done and let them handle it first is if it was their fault you will not have to pay. Some shops offer a free tow service to pick the vehicle up and save you the trip . This also assures that there may be less chance of any damage occurring that might cost them more than the cost of a tow truck. Ask if they have this free service as you fear the vehicle may be damaged if you drive it to them. People makes mistakes and honest people will try to rectify the mistake. Give them a chance but voice your concern.

Donna, please connect any scan tool and read the DTCs.
then post them for help.
THE CEL glows for smog reasons,at the least or for worst but does not glow for all errors. so alway scan first then ask questions.
or its all just water under a bridge.

The recall is expected to begin in December 2016. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-800-331-4331. Toyota's number for this recall is G05.

I have 2006 Honda Accord se, engine lite started flashing then permantly on bout 1 1/2 moths. Now won't start but belt still goes round, what could it be?

You drove with a flashing check engine light and then with it on solid. Flashing check engine light means STOP DRIVING and get it fixed. So this sounds like an abused and neglected car to me. Get the trouble codes read that are stored in the computer. Check for good fuel pressure and spark. Fix one or both.

Just got an oil change on wed- fully synthetic audi a4 2006 Today ( Friday morning) got the oil pressure light and the car started making very loud noise at the same second as I got this light. What can...

I don't enjoy being the bearer of any bad news, and I truly hope that what I think happened didn't happen.
It is completely possible that when the oil change was done, either the pan plug or the oil filter were not screwed on tight. This enabled the oil to leak out of your engine, causing lack of lubrication. When the bottom of your engine stopped being lubricated it caused a spun bearing on crankshaft at piston rod bottom. This is just a guess on my part since you stated oil pressure light and loud noise. I do feel that you should call the place where oil change was done and report this problem to them. DO NOT drive the car, let them come to you to inspect or tow back to there place. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

P0340 Problem Code for 03 Jeep Liberty

code p0340 refers to cam shaft position sensora bank 1-circuit malfunction===causes --wiring Cam sensor---ECM. The only connection is the ECM to both units so they may have unpluged the ECM to service the air bag problem. IT could be as simple as using a code reader to reset the CPU. I may also be a coincedence and there may be a fault in the cam position sensor.. I would discuss the matter with the dealer service department to determine what is what.

Air bag light on, dash indicator?

You will need to have it scanned by the dealer or a person with VAG-COM. That will help in determining where the problem is. There was a recall on this a couple of years ago. It may be fixed by taking it in for the recall if you haven't done so already.
