The engine bearings and oil pump are getting worn. Try 'high-mileage' oil next oil change (be sure to change the filter too). If you have been running 10-30 oil, go to 10-40 which has more viscosity and maintains oil pressure better. The sure fix is a fresh engine, but not cheap. We had a '96 Caravan that had over 300,000 miles and still running well on the original engine when we bought a later model Caravan.

Check gages light just flashed on my 2002 envoy


This is a good time to check ALL underhood levels...oil, water, etc. Also, check your gas cap...turn clockwise to hear 3 clicks...you may have to drive awhile before the Check light goes back out. Hope this helps.

EPC LIGHT WONT STOP in my 02 Jetta


When was the last time you changed your Air filter( A dirty filter can put MAF sensor out of range). How about the fuel filter (Fuel starvation). These filters should be changed every 30,000 miles . It is normal for all of the dash lights to come on if the engine stops running. Is the Jetta a Diesel or Gas. Perform The OBDII scan again to see if current faults are present. Do the cheapest fixes first. Also check oil often. The low oil sensor will trigger engine shut down if more than 1 quart low

Fast idle, wants too buck until step on gas then finally problem stops, goes over 50 for awhile then backing off gas check engine light goes on and stays on? replace the computer because of driving it...


air leak, possibly around tb, thus o2 sensor trying to compensate for rich fuel, thus excessive 02 emissions, so o2 sensor warning WILL come on and stay until ecm reset

At red light engine seems like it wants to cut off.


try changing your pcv valve. if its dirty it may be causing the shuttering. as for the check engine light going on and off, you may have a bad gas cap. if the cap is faulty it will cause the engine light to come on at times because of a poor air to fuel ratio.
