Not exactly, but they are checking emission that are released into the atmosphere, and if you have bad rings, which that is nortorious with Saturns, this would cause you to fail the test. One way to check this out is to see if there is oil deposits built up on your spark plugs...if so, there's your problem.

2003 2.7 grand Cherokee holds in low gear when cold it's an auto box

2.7? diesel, the engine we dont have,, in USA.
Turbo diesel;?
so what up, ELABORATE please.
WJ JEEP is a USA jeep, in Europe its a WG, jeep, and runs different engines and trans,
yet another post with no country, like most here, and FAILED.
what does holds in low gear mean.?
try to know that engine power and a/t shift points are complex.
means, tell what works and not, pretend the helper is blind
and has no hands nor legs. bingo.?

now my wild guess, based off 2 words.
hold and lowgear.
i guess you are saying the engine runs perfectly with full power.
but the transmission will not auto up shift from 1st gear to 2nd,
is this correct?
if yes,
  1. check transmission fluid levels. do not overfill it, or guess.
  2. check fuses, we test them.
  3. if the trans , fails, now, the Diesel has a special version of the transmission, not petrol box. and most have an external TCM controller, unlike ours, totally. but it must be SCANNED.
  4. or you will never know why failing !
  5. The scans will show errors, telling you why the TCM tranny brain, can not shift, (sensors errors? comm errors/ many...)
  6. there you go, there is more, but illl stop here, the service manual tells you in clear English , all on car checks for tranny. if read.

my WG book, shows even Diesel shift'er module, is unique
and can not communicate, and fail.
and the TCM is controlling all this.

Learn to scan all modern cars first (means 96'+)
and save time, and money.
guessing will not work. sorry.

if you had scanned it and posted errors we could wax 10x more savvy, for sure.
  1. buy a scanner use it. (save big money for life of car)
  2. Get it scanned. (all shops can)
  3. call mobile car service, and they scan it?
  4. tow car to any shop they scan it.
our cars show P07xx codes. for trans or P17xx.
in Europe they have EOBD, (simular to our OBD2, we invented)
so that is your tool, that works. (wild guessing country I am)

here is one example
P27xx , are all trans errors, lots

this means the PCm can not talk to the TCM box.
if it cant, the the PCm can not send engine load data to it.
or worse.
service manual, WG , chapter 21, covers all this.

My speedometer is not working can anyone tell me what is the problem. ..and my check engine light is on can anyone also tell me what it means

My first guess would be the speed sensor has failed.
You can check for trouble codes in the engine computer to verify.

What does mil cmd fail mean?

MIL is your malfunction indicator lamp, (check engine light)

CMD is the computer interface port, or OBDII port indicating a malfunction communicating with your cars computer

check all the fuses, primarily any marked pcm and retest your vehicle
note: your check engine or MIL has to be on in KOEO state (key on engine off), if the bulb is burned out everything will still work and the OBDII test computer will show MIL status ON, and if you don't have a computer to tell you that, you must get that light to light in the koeo state.

Error codes p0108/p0203/p0303 what are they

what engine, cant fix,them not knowing that.. so what engine is there, opted day 1.
they are failed ECU/PCM tests.
thats correct the light means the EFI (or other parts) needs service.
if you had the FSM , and read the page under P0108 youd
see the book telling you what the test does, and how to isolate
that problem, to the CAUSE.
the PCM does not EVER know cause, only what tests fail.
303 is cylinder 3 misfire.
108 means the Baro MAP sensor is reading too high
203 means injector 3 , is reading wrong.

Id first check injector 3 , for connector fell off or wire damage there.
or pins corroded
then disconnect it and measure the injector coil resistance.
infinity is a blown coil.. it will read the same as the other 3,
if all read 10 ohms then that is correct. (im not locking up the spec here, you can RTM , FSM or and see it)

203 is a hard fail. i do them first.
the map might read wrong do to a dead #3 cylinder
and #303 misfire, id bet is a victim of bad injector #3

Check engine light comes on 2007 toyota hiace

scan it
the CEL means, in barstool jargon
hey mista, the engine brain found and error, its bad, and want
to tell you the test that failed. so scan me.
if lamp flashes, that means the CAT is burning up. $$$
the operator guide tells this much better, but there you go.

use any OBD2 scan tool, in USA> any autostore, will loan it, ask.

My Ford Taurus Failed the inspection, we have replaced 1 oxygen sensor, but the reading still failed. Went to the Autozone & & did a reading came up with two codes P0430 & P0125, is this to...

PO125 means the ECM sees the engine is too cold to go into closed loop and runs rich for too long.
PO430 means the ECM doesn't like what it sees coming out the exhaust.
I would check the thermostat and make sure the engine is getting up to 195-200 degrees after 5 or 10 min of drive time, and if it is then check the temp sensor for the ECM to make sure it is reading the engine temp correctly.
Fixing the code 125 should take care of the code 430.

Yellow engine light is on but car is running just fine.

The check engine light is a warning light that is telling you that something is failing. It usually means that there is something going on with emissions, but it can really be anything. Until you have it scanned there is noway of knowing exactly what the problem is. usually Autozone will scan it free of charge and tell you what the fault is.

What is code p1133 and the battery light is on

P1133 is the code that tells you that your HO2S (Heated oxygen sensor) is not performing correctly. This can mean that sensor has failed to function correctly at least twice in a row and so the computer will store the data that occured the first time it failed and turn on the Check engine lite. Most likely you need a new Heated oxygen sensor.

What does the orange engine light means in my 2008 Caravan.

Hi, this light is signaling an issue the concerns the state of a failed sensor or electrical component. I recommend taking this vehicle to a dealership or local mechanic as soon as possible for a diagnostic run on the ecm. this diagnostic scan will tell you and your mechanic what the specific issue is and, how to fix it.

In most cases, it will be a failed sensor or a failed sensor wire/housing.
