We just purchased a 2002 Rav4 with 98,000 miles on it. After 85 miles of driving, the check engine light came on. What are some things we can check BEFORE we take it in for the diagnostic?

Midas and auto-zone will do a free diagnostics free if the ck engine light comes on usually its the o2 -sensor , try removing the + positive terminal on the battery for a few minutes then reconnect it should reset the OBC and the light should go out if it re appears you need to understand why like i said a Midas will give you a Free diagnosis of your issue ....look for the obvious such as the oil as well as all fluid levels and cracked or dry rotted vacuum lines etc.

My 2009 vw jetta TDI has code po47a showing. What does this mean?


When my 2009 Jetta TDI check engine light came, I took it to my nearest VW dealer - about 100 miles away. $450 spent, and they said some kind of exhaust flap was stuck, and they replaced it. Within a month, the CE light came on again. Didn't want to drive 100 miles and get stuck up for another $500 so I purchased an OBD reader, and the code is PO47A. Apparently has something to do with the exhause pressure sensor. I ordered one, and repaced it myself (about $85) and cleared the code. After driving for about 10 miles, the CE light comes back on, and the error code is again PO47A. My repair manual for the car has codes for PO47B, PO47C and a few more, but no PO47A. the car runs just fine as it is, but I want to make sure there is nothing serious going on.

I AM LOOKING TO BUY A 2002 CHEVY CAVILIER WITH 112 THOU MILES ON IT WHAT MAJOR PROBLEMS SHOULD I LOOK FOR BEFORE I PURCHASE IT


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Make sure you check the engine compartment. Check for burnt wires, loose wires. Check for large oil spots on the engine and under the engine. If it has a lot, there may be a major oil leak. Listen for any noises the motor makes while at idle. Check to make sure all the fuses are there. Check the oil, transmission fluid, coolant fluid, and power steering fluid. Check the front and back axle. Ask to test drive it and ride it hard for a few miles. Check out the brakes, check all gears. Feel for any stalling or vibrations. Check all things such as lights, signals, air and heat, headlights, taillights, and brake lights. Check radio and wipers.

At low speed from deceleration or accelerating from a stop the car runs roughly and has stalled several times. 2002 3.8L 85 k miles auto trans. My code scanner shows no faults. No check engine light.


Sounds like a faulty cam sensor. ford is known for this to happen. This does not show up because it is a mechanically working peice. get it checked and replaced it necessary.

Check engine light sensors have been reset but don't show a reading


U will need to drive a mixture of stop and go, city low speed and freeway miles, this can take a week and 20-50 miles or so for the system to finish it's internal self testing. this is called a drive cycle test.
