    Take it to an auto parts store. They will scan it for free. Then go to another auto parts store and see if the answers match. [don't tell them you already had it scanned] If the answers are two different "diagnosis", then mention it. The guys at some auto parts stores can be very helpful. Some. Other stores make it their policy not to give advice. None of us on this site will be able to help you because we don't know what code it's reading. Plus, many of us just don't have the code books for all the makes and models of cars out there..

Yes have the system scanned for the fault code or codes that are recorded in the engine control module when the CEL is turned on.

SOURCE: light just came on: service engine soon... 2005

Just take it to a shop and have somebody look at it. It could just be maintenance that needs to be done. When was the last time the oil was changed? Newer cars are programmed to turn that light on at specific intervals to ensure proper and timely maintenance is performed.

Car sometimes jerks when idle and wont accelerate when this happens


crank sensors fail on these very frequently,causing running issues. if service engine soon light is on, then your mechanic should be able to pull something from computer. sounds to me like he doesn't know what he is doing. get your self a new mechanic. that light doesn't come on just for fun. it comes on to tell you that there is a problem. if a throttle body is an issue, he should have pulled P0507 ICS system. If so, there may be an issue with the throttle body. have seen few with computer issue causing throttle body code, but those are rare. most likely throttle body, but depend on code number.

I meant how do you replace an egr sensor in a 2005 rendezvous?


A faulty egr would not create a high idle issue. if an egr valve were to open while idling then it would create a heavy stumbling engine or it would die right out. if there is a check engine light on (or service engine soon light) have the codes pulled. Failing that then I suggest taking it to a reputable shop

How to reset engine lite in dash


Check engine light comes on and off, these are indication that there is some error code stored in your vehicles ECM. The engine module computer needs to be scanned. These will give the code and as per the error code the further problem can be detected and confirmed. The engine light indicator blinks or remains steady on dash when engine computer noticed any problem with any engine electrically operated components.

"service engine soon" light came on while driving on interstate. had the code checked by autozone (P0455) which indicated evap problem, check fuel cap. found cap to be loose but after several days...


Usually takes quite a few starts before it will erase/reset itself, such as 50 on some vehicles. Can always return to autozone and ask to scan and erase, then see if it comes back.

2005 Infiniti G35 coupe Service engine soon light comes on, how do i reset it?


You need to have access to a code reader to turn the light off.  The best/cheapest way is to go to a local auto parts store and most of them will read the code for you for free and then turn the light off.  I would strongly suggest taking the code to see what might be wrong though.  Good luck.
