Driving my bmwz4 2005 auto suddenly no power. After stop then it starts again in about 5 minutes. Am desperate please help!!!!

Does the Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light come on? If so, there is an error code stored in your car's onboard computer. This code can be read and interpreted to provide a starting point for troubleshooting the problem. If no light, I would suspect bad gasoline (water or contaminants in fuel), loose wiring to the fuel pump, clogged fuel injectors or fuel filter, or an ignition electrical problem. Without additional information, it is very difficult to diagnose. If the Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light illuminated, take your car to a larger auto parts store and ask the counterperson to read the error code with their diagnostic scanner. They can interpret any code and advise what corrective action(s) may be required. Good luck.

Emission light on in laguna car

If you mean the Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light, there is a Diagnostic Test Code(s) (DTC error code(s)) stored in your onboard diagnostic computer. An OBD II code scanner can read the code(s), and an auto parts store counterperson can tell you what the code(s) means. In fact, at larger parts stores, the counterperson will have a code scanner available for use at their store free of charge...and they might even connect it and read the code for you (they are in the business of selling parts, ya know?). Then you will have to decide whether or not you want to try the repair yourself. Good luck.

I have a 1999 Saturn sc3. It was fine until the hurricane this past weekend. As soon as I turned the car on, the l"Service Engine Soon" light came on. I am wondering if it is safe to drive or...

The Service Engine soon light indicates that something is likely wrong with your emissions system. It could be any number of things but it is OK to drive to a repair shop or parts shop to get the codes read. Some of these issues can cause damage if you don't get the vehicle repaired soon but you can drive it a little bit (you won't need to get it towed).
I would recommend an Autozone or Pep Boys to get the code read as it may be something as simple as replacing the gas cap.

What all is involved when your service engine soon light is on.

this light can come on for many different reasons. the way to find out what the problem is to read the codes stored in the computer. most auto parts store such as autozone or advance auto will read the codes for free and give you probable causes for the error. most commonly if the light comes on and the car appears to be running properly it is most likely a oxygen sensor gone bad, but to be certain get the codes read.

Service engine soon light keeps comming on

Have had the car serviced lately? Oil change, tune up, things of that nature? It may be time to do that stuff. Does that car have a "Service Engine Soon" light and a "Check Engine" light? If the car has been serviced recently and the "Service Engine Soon" light is coming on, it's because who ever serviced it, did not reset the light. To reset the light, this works on most GM cars, turn the ignition to the "on" position DO NOT START THE CAR!!! Now within 5 seconds push the gas pedal to the floor and release it 3 times. That should reset the light if that don't work, you may want see what it says in the owners manual. Or you may have to take it to a shop. If the "Check Engine" light is coming on then there is a problem with the vehicle and there should be a "code" in the computer. Most auto parts stores will put a scanner on your car and read the codes for free. Those lights are there for a reason, if ignore them your car will let you down.

How do I check my 1998 Dodge Caravan fault codes. My service engine soon light is on but I'd like to check it out before I take it in to the shop.

Take it to an auto parts store or rent a diagnostic tool to read the codes before taking it to dealer. Most auto parts stores will do it for free if equipped.

Service Engine Light Appeared - 1998 Ford Taurus

Take it to your local Auto Zone store. They will hook it up to a scanner for FREE and read the codes saved in the computer. They should give you a printout with the codes and possible problems with your car. You can decide where to take it to get it serviced knowing what the problem is. It's usually a bad sensor. Auto Zone could quote you a price on the part so you have an idea of what your repair bill should be. Auto Zone only sells parts. They do not install them. Good Luck!
