What year Subaru? The check engine light indicates an emissions problem most likely. If your Subaru is 96 or newer, it is the OBDII system. You need to bring it to a parts store where they will plug a hand held scan tool into the car's diagnostic port, and check for any codes stored on the car's computer. This is a free service. They can tell you what the code #'s mean and suggest how to fix the problem. Post the codes here with any questions you may have after that.

I had the same problem after a service with my 96 Impreza. Turns out they must have broken the spark lead when changing the plugs. A replacement lead was fitted. I had three black leads and one blue. I then replaced all four leads and I have not seen the engine light since. Hope this helps. Cheers.

I have a 1998 buick regal it has been recently tuned up was getting very good gas mileage and runnin well now it is burning more gasoline...no change in performance and no engine light codes


Good gas mileage on this car should be 19City 27Hwy. Gas mileage can be affected by many things. Assuming that the car has been recently tuned as you have indicated, I would: Check tire pressure first<-you'd be surprised what low tire pressure can do. Check for low oil level <-engine friction Cheap spark plugs. Let me know.

Service engine light


Light came on due to the engine computer pick up a bad signal from one of your engine sensors, will have to get a code reading to know what's going on, most auto parts will do this service for free or some one like autozone, have it done and get back with us with the code number, so we can help you with your trouble code.

The mileage on my Jeep has dropped from 16 to 12 mpg in the last 3-4 weeks. I have been pulling a popup tent trailer behind it (only weighs about 1,600 lbs.), but the mileage drop has been evident even...


These are the most common causes for bad mileage.
Tire pressure is a huge factor (Tire should be set at the factory recommendation or 1-2 psi above, but never below - Tire should also be a Low Rolling Resistance Tire)
Oil level (you said it's OK, so I assume it's not above the full mark)
Running extra accessories (A/C, etc)
Dirty Air Filter
bad Ignition timing
engine running hotter than normal
fuel injectors may be stuck partially open
bad fuel pressure regulator
faulty emission control device (this usually triggers a check engine light)

Oil light flashing, last oil change 7 wks ago


I belive they didn't reset the oil light timer. I belive the sequence is 1. key on (not acc with engine off)
2. step on the brake pedal 5 times within 10 seconds. 3. key off. 4. start car. 5. check if the light went out. you may have to try it a few times to get it.

Burning oil, but dont know why


Nowdays 1 Qt. in 3000 miles, really isn't that bad, even some new vehicles claim that's normal. I know with my current vehicles, both at approx. 150,000-160,000 miles, they won't use any for first while after an oil change, but then after mileage starts adding up again, they start to use a little, approx.I Qt, every 1000 miles or so, until it's changed again. I've switched to the high mileage oil, just for piece of mind, as they say it revives seals, and has added protection for the higher mileage engines.This time around I'm thinking of adding "Lucas" & see how it works, as I've heard some pretty good reports on it, just to see if it will prolong that oil breakdown, at mid change.

Engine light is on.


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine or Service Engine Soon lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. Not fluid related, but could be a small problem that's easy to fix now. Even a loose gas cap can turn the light on. Have a code scan, that's the starting point.
