Try resetting the computer. Disconnect your battery for 5-10 minutes and reconnect. This should get rid of the light if the gas cap was the problem. If it comes back on take it to an Advanced Auto or Auto zone and get an Engine Diagnostic, they're free. Hope this helps

2002 GMC Yukon XL flashing check engine lite


Hello
When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

Dealer says that I need to replace right rear strut. Noise generated when going over a rough road. The dealer cost is 700.00. This sounds high to me. I've changed struts on vw's before. Is it...


This is in the realm of DIY but you will definitely need a spring compressor if this is in fact a strut-type assembly. The coil springs are under a great deal of tension and disassembling them without the compressor can be lethal. It is known that Toyota parts and service can be costly but if you intend on doing your own service, I highly recommend you invest ~$25 in a service manual for your car. These can be had on line:

or at auto parts stores.

What to look for when buying 96 chev cav 4 door


Unless its CHEAP, I would keep looking. These were cheap cars, and most people that bought them were cheap, and did not service them regularly. If you really want it, pay a mechanic to look it over BEFORE you purchase it. If its really good, the seller wont have a problem with that, If they do, then pass.

Heating problem in winter times


I read in one of the TSB's that there is an issue in the 04 M3 in that the air flow past the AC condenser. Diggin this out of my memory... but as I remember it, the air flow is too fast (?) and the air does not get temperature exchanged efficiently. The TSB had a fix to put a damper in that would slow the air flow down. Don't konw if it's the same thing or not, but might be good for a conversation with your Service Manager. .. check this link for that TSB; http://www.protegefaq.net/tsb/07-005-04.html .. and this one for all TSB's; http://www.protegefaq.net/tsb/
