It could be a number of things. The best thing to do is to take the truck to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for codes stored. Most parts stores will do the scan for free and getting the codes will eliminate speculation and will show what the computer has noted so that appropriate corrective action can be taken. If there were no codes noted, then they can reset the light with the scan tool. Hope this helped and best wishes.

I have a 2008 volkswagen jetta that has 9500 miles on it. this morning there is a yellow light on that resembles an engine? I think it is suppose to be an outline of an engine


Engine trouble or service light. Could just be wanting an oil change, maybe something more. Is it running OK? Check owners manual for details about the light. You are probably still under warranty anyway, check with VW dealer. It may not cost you anything to fix.

Electronic throttle control symbol illuminated this morning and the engine went to a limp-home, what does it mean, and is it costly? Driving to the train station in Atlanta this morning the symbol came on...


I would not recommend any trip until the car is repaired. The symbol in the dash means the car was in limp mode. It could be caused by the T/P sensor, this is the most likelt problem.

Service engine light stays on


the check engine ligth just means you are not passing emissions right now. Coud be due to loose fill cap at some time, or filling the tank with the key on.
Try disconnecting the battery ground cable for an hour. Then reconnect and drive for 10 miles until computer relearns engine changes. It may run rough for 10 miles.

If still on, go to Autozone and ask them to perform a free computer scan & get the fault code. It will tell you which sysem to check.

Couds of grayish smoke when starting


If it's the org. engine it will has over 200,000 miles on it.
It's normal to has the valve steam seal/oil seal on the head to leak oil into the cyclinder.

The smoke you see is the motor oil drop from the seals.

It land on the top of the cyclinders and it create black smoke at start up.

The inexpensive fix is to start using high mileage oil with seal conditioner.
This will help soften the rubber seals and help reduce internal oil leak.

The correct fix is to wait until it's time for a head gasket replacement and let the professional service the head.

Complete head service is the only method to stop this internal oil drip problem.

Engine light 2006 pontiac g6(reset)


first be sure that its the engine light and not the "service" light. the service light will usually illuminate if its time for an oil change. if its the service light ur owners manual should tell u how to reset it. if its ur engine light then try disconnecting ur positive battery cable for 1 minute. that should reset ur ecm and get rid of the engine light. if the engine light comes back on then have a diagnostic scan done to determine whats causing it.
