Why does check engine light stay on?


A rattle could be a lot of things. Many auto parts stores will do a free diagnostic readout of the code causing the check engine light to come on.

Yes a head normally can be milled (shaved) down and a new gasket installed to fix the engine. Be sure to fix WHY it overheated too. Of course change oil and coolant too!

My Toyota Vigo Hilux develop smoking then was leaking oil then someone tried to fix and now cannot start at all.


all that , scares me, sounds like car is falling apart,
why not get it serviced? golly gee?
no year stated, fail 1
no engine stated, (gas or diesel or displacement size)
smoking at tail pipe end or just where.? and hot and cold engine?
or just smokes on hills,
NO start, well, does it crank, no car with A./T starts unless cranked,
automatic trans, is it? (a key fact that)
  1. if it cranks and the engine is gas, then spark is 2nd.
  2. got spark to all cylinders, ?
  3. if spark is good, and timed correct, next is test fuel
  4. does test fuel start engine? y/n
  5. yes, the fueling is bad,
  6. no? then engine is bad or spark was bad.
  7. tell more get more..... its not hard, each step , every test is by ORDER, not guessing.

I was driving my kia and losss power black smoke came out of exhaust and would not start on hot start


Most likely the engine cylinder head gasket has blown causing oil and coolant to flood the engine and cause smoke. This will prevent engine from starting. Looks like a big job ahead to fix. Try not to keep cranking the engine as the pistons could seize inside the engine cylinders. I hope it is not as serious as I may have made out to be. Please tow the car to mechanic asap.

Yesterday, there was smoking coming from under the hood. There is an atnifreeze leak there but today, it wasnt smoking. Is it safe to be driving?


More than likely the antifreeze was leaking onto the hot exhaust manifold and/or muffler pipe. Since the car isn't hot anymore, its not smoking. Driving is not a big hazzard unless the steam prevents you from seeing or if you run the antifreeze too low, which will overheat your engine. I would fix the leak ASAP...

2004 1.6 vvt renault scenic smoking and juddering and ``check emissions`` message on dash and orange light ?


White smoke is a symptom of coolant entering the combustion chamber which usually indicates a blown head gasket. Blue smoke is a symptom of oil burning. Black smoke is a symptom of an overly rich fuel/air mixture. Have the ECU scanned with an OBD2 scan tool. This will retrieve the cade that has been set by the ECU. That code will tell you what part is being effected and where to start looking. If you see white smoke STOP driving this car immediately as serious engine damage will occur if you continue to run the engine. It must be repaired ASAP.

Ouch! you've got engine coolant in the exhaust from a leak somewhere...DO NOT run this engine until you get someone (dealer is best in this instance) to diagnose ($50-125)

First check the timing belt. Open the oil cap and have someone crank it while you look inside and see if the camshaft is moving.

I cant locate the iat and the maf sensor wires on my car.


I can tell you that the mass air flow sensor is up front on the drivers side of the engine. It will be located on top of the round black tube that runs behind the air cleaner box. The IAT, or the IAC valve should be located closer to the engine towards the end of that same tube. That's where the throttle body is located. I would suggest going to your local library and referencing a Mitchell or Chilton repair manual if there is one available for that new of a model.
