You can reset it by either an OBD II scanner (auto zone, car quest, pep boys, etc) or simply by disconnecting the battery cables from the battery posts and touching the cables together for 30 seconds... then reconnect them to the battery posts.

2001 Expedition - check engine light came on. Oil change on 1/27/11 not due for another 1000 miles. It just started to tremble and is running rough.


your oil change has nothing to do with your check engine light. probably needs spark plugs and a coil or 2

My 1999 Audi A4 1.8T when the engine is warm i have a misfire in the lower end of revving the engine once it has run for a bit and i change into higher gears its ok, what could cause this to happen???


It could be a number of things. Aged spark plugs, failing ignition coil, oil soaked spark plugs, maybe a vacuum leak, etc. Is your check engine light on? This may help narrow the issue. Please let me know if I may further assist you.

Changed oil and spark plugs in my 2000 volkswagon jetta and now the check engine light is on any ideas why its on


I don't believe the oil change would cause the problem. The only thing I can think of that would cause the engine light to be ON is maybe the spark plug gap isn't correct. That may cause delay or pre-firing the fuel in the cylinder.


But, there are many emission sensors in the car that will make the engine light come ON. Not to mention the big list of trouble codes for the engine light. The engine light code will give you a big clue of what's causing the problem.



Best way to find out what's going on engine light is to have an auto-parts store hook up a engine code reader and tell you what the code means and the problem. Most auto-part store will do this for free.
If you get a codes like P0300, P0301, P0302, and etc. Then the spark plugs need to be look into.

I have a 2003 vw passat 2.8L while changing the spark plugs I noticed oil in the spark plug holes. After gapping and installing the new plugs I drove the car about 20 mile and the check engine light...


Unfortunately the check engine light could be caused by hundreds of things and yet it could have something to do with your changing of the plugs. Do me a favor and take the car to your local auto parts store and they will check the code for the engine light for you for free. Bring that code back here and I will help you figure out what is causing the light and the slugish engine. Sorry for your problem but I'm sure I can help you get it fixed. Thanks for using FixYa!

2001 daewoo lanos check engine light


oil is non conductive so I doubt that's the problem, but the oil leak should be fixed to reduce problems down the road.
as for the misfire could be a couple things, fouled plug(s), a plug wire(s) that has cracks, or even valves that are not seating which i doubt from your explanation.
I would change your plugs and wires first, and fix oil leak. if this does not fix the issue there are other things going on.
