The ECM is in limp mode so it is necessary to have the fault codes read asap to find what sensor shut down the car. I suspect from the smoke and the cooling down and the stoping that you have cooked a motor.

sounds like you have a blown head gasket this would explain loss of coolant and running poorly excessive smoke.

The only fluid expansion tank I know of is for the cooling system,and if that is the case you my have a leak in the transmission cooler that is built into the radiator.

SOURCE: I was driving on the interstate when my oil light

Your oil pump is loosing power, this light is going on when you have driven for long periods or in high temperature, the hot oil looses viscosity and gets thinner, try changing the oil with a high mile one (cars/trucks with more than 100,000mi) or add an oil pressure restorer treatment, this will do the job for a while but your truck "has warned you already" it will need a new oil pump soon. Good luck

SOURCE: 2006 Subaru Outback: all of a sudden, the cruis

Hello, whenever the check engine light comes on the cruse light will flash as well, that is normal. The check engine light will not come on if fluid levels are low or if the temp is getting to high, I am pleased to know that you checked all of the fluids, most wouldn't have even the slightest thought to even try checking them. The On Board Diagnostics or OBD-2 for short only sets a check engine light when the ECM or Electronic Control Module reads a sensor value either too high or too low, but it has to read that same fault 3 consecutive times in a row to turn on the check engine light (w/ flashing cruise). Otherwise your check engine light would be going on and off all the time. I would go to your local parts store and have them check the codes for free because a dealer will have to charge you labor for them to check due to the knowledge needed to use the highly sophisticated scan tool they use. That way you can go either to an independent shop or a dealer with what the other scanner says is wrong which cuts down on the cost of repairs. They will probably ask you if you fueled up just before the engine light came on, in which that would be code P0440:EVAP leak(very small leak), that means the fuel tank sensor doesn't like how you put the fuel cap on. Subaru recommends AT LEAST 3 clicks when tightening your fuel cap. But until that code is checked you won't know whats wrong, if nothing went boom or bang you'll probably be ok. If it does end up being a fuel cap leak, then just loosen the cap put it back on and just make 1 full revolution, and just keep driving it. The light will go off within 3 full warm up cool down cycles or (drive cycles). I hope this info helps...(subyguru)...

Where is the fuse panel that controls cruise control on a 2001 jimmy gmc


It may be in the fuse panel under the hood. If it is ok, check the cruise control kick out switch operated by the brake pedal. If mis adjusted or knocked out of position cruise will not work.

What does the MIL code "PO 320" mean, please?


code p0320 refers to cam shaft position (CKP) sensor/engine speed (RPM) sensor--circuit malfunction=== causes --wiring--CKP/RPM sensor ---ECM
because the engine runs ok until it is on cruise control I would be investigating the RPM sensor for a fault
The cruise control takes its control from the RPM sensor and if that circuit is interminable the the cruise control doesn't know what rpms to maintain.

Cruise control doesn't work in 2010 pontiac g5


Tricky. If you're unfamiliar with the operation of GM cruise control systems, refer to a qualified GM technician.
Things you can try:
  1. Lubricate the actuator switch;
  2. Lubricate the brake switch (yes, the brake switch is in the circuit);
  3. Lubricate all actuator switches for the cruise control system at the steering wheel;
  4. Check for vacuum leaks, damaged vacuum lines, or other visible problems around the cruise control servo (under the hood).
  5. If your vehicle is equipped with a TRIP COMPUTER, and the trip computer is not updating mileage, replace the SPEED SENSOR.

You need to find out what fault caused the check engine light to come on, until the fault code is retrieved from the engine control module memory you are 100% guessing. I think you have a misfire.

Cruise control light will not come on after truck warms up 2004 dodge ram pick-up Cruise works ok when first using it , after driving to my destination, shutting off the truck. 15 min later driving again,...


After the light goes out does it come back on while driving down the road?
If it does this sounds as if you may have a heat sensitive problem at the cruise motor. this has a sensoe that turns the light on when it is engaged. when you turn it off and sits a while does the heat under the hood goes higher expanding the circuts an open circut. You may have to replace the board in the motor.
