Could pick up a sensor at an autoparts store and find out whats causing it, first guess would be an O2 sensor or Mass Airflow Sensor because a CEL is for emmissions usually.

I suggest scanned the PCM to know exactly what fault code is stored there. With this code number could send additional details to diagnosys and solve it.

I have a 1999 e430 benz and the check engine light is blinking what does this mean?

If the check engine light is on and blinking, this is an indicator of the computer getting a signal from a sensor in the engine compartment saying that there "may" be an issue. Given that it is blinking, the computer is recognizing a hard code and that it is present. The vehicle needs to be scanned for codes. Have it scanned and get back to me with the numbers. They will start with "P".

My 2001 Jaguar XJ8 seems to run rather hot; although no problems; however I have an amber engine light that stays on. My car runs fine other than that. I just went to Auto Zone and had the codes checked...

I am not familiar with the light your speaking of (I am assuming a warning light for engine heat?) if she's running warm the thermostate may be failing or stuck in a partially closed/open position.

If the light is an Engine Check light then yes is may be as simple as a faulty fuel cap not holding presure within the tank. You'll note some cars when you open the cap there is a small "huff" of air as the cap is removed.
I hope this may have helped,

Check engine light/2001 Mazda Millenia

The check engine light comes on when there is a problem with your engine and throws a code which it then stores. That code can be "read" by an OBDI/OBDII scanner and should give you the info you need. If it was scanned and the codes "read" the check engine light should of been re-set. If your car is running well have your mechanic re-set it; if it comes on again take it and have it checked again. No system is fool proof and there may still be a problem. Hope this helps.

Can i continue to drive my mercedes clk 30 with the engine diagnostics indicator lamp on, i think the problem is with the exhaust

Although your car may run fine fine for the time being, there is no guaranty that it will do so in the future. My advice would be to at least get it throughly checked. Remember that if you solve the problem before it occurs you may save yourself time and money.

Yellow engine check light stays on

take the car to dealership and get them to cancel the fault memory of the engine control unit. Then if the warning light comes back on you will need a full diagnosis check to establish what is causing thefault.
