Will check engine light turn on if serpantine belt needs replacing?


No. The service engine soon light will come on for other reasons than a cracked belt that is largely still intact and turning the accessory pulleys.

My service engine light is on and the engine is running rough . What doni do ?


Shut down engine immediately before more damage is done. The engine oil and the oil pressure condition must be checked.
The timing belt condition or if the period has elapsed for changing the timing belt must be checked.

I have 140K on by 2002 S60 what service should I complete. Did big service at 75K, timing belt never changed. What do you recommend?


You should have changed the Timing Belt at 60K niles, by not changing the Timing Belt you are taking a serious gamble on the Belt breaking on you at anytime, leaving you stranded and costing you thousands of dollars in engine repairs. If your car runs fine, No Check Engine Lights, I would just do your regular engine oil changes, flush Radiator, Change Transmission Fluid and Filter, but change the Timing Belt ASAP.

Serpentine belt problem?? heater blowing cold air.


If the serpentine belt broke, the water pump would have also stopped turning, causing coolant to stop flowing...therefore the heater would run cold. Since the belt also turns the alternator, the charging system would also stop working (alt light).
Since nothing is flowing through the engine or radiator, the engine will quickly overheat. Since your engine oil also does a bit of cooling as well as lubrication, oil passing through the overheated block will break down and overheat as well. Hopefully the light came on for that before any internal bearing damage was done. Smoke was due to the overheat.
Your serpentine belt likely is not covered under a warranty, especially after four years.
Hopefully the problem is isolated to just the belt but I do recommend that if you have an automatic transmission you change the fluid in that even if you are not at the change interval recommended. Trans oil is cooled by the cooling system and a severe overheat can chemically change it. Doing a change now will avoid any overheat related trans failure. Since you can't remove all the trans fluid (at best during a change you only remove half) so I recommend using a bottle of lucas trans additive to bolster the remaining fluid.
Good luck!!

Service engine soon light on. failed aircare.showing code po341 .


The service engine light DOES NOT mean change your oil. The change oil or maintence required light means change oil. The service engine light is the same as a check engine light and means that there is something (not always really bad) is going on with your motor and need someone that has a code reader to let you know what the code is. Yes that code is a camshaft position sensor code. It is located on the passenger side of the engine in the "valley" between the two cyclinder heads. Its not too hard as long as you have some tools and some skills. Its easiest to remove the serpentine belt and remove the bolts for the power steering pump. That way you can move the pump a little to gain better access to remove the cam sensor. Just replaced one yesterday on a 99 century. Hope that helps!

Check engine light steady on. Replaced fuel filler cap. Problem still there. Disconnect battery. Light goes out but back in an hour or so.


Have had this problem more than once.

1. When you fill up with gas make sure you click the gas cap at least three times according to the manual.

2. When you have your oil changed make sure they push the reset button. Just tell them and they will know what you mean. If they dont, it can cause the check engine light to stay on.

3. Check your oil that can cause it, if the oil is low.

See if any of these work, they have for me in the past.

Good Luck!
