If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.

A solid light can mean anything from a loose/faulty gas cap to a transmission issue.

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially turn on. Until you get this code, it's impossible to determine what parts need to be checked or replaced.

2004 sierra 1500 crew cab won't go into park unless truck is slightly moving

Inside your automatic transmission is a cawl that engages a notched ring. If your transmission linkage has become bent for some reason, or the transmission has been moved (an accident, a damaged mount, etc.) then it might take some extra persuasion to get into park. Internal damage to the transmission is also plausible if the trans was abused in some way. That could include putting stress on the park mechanism, even as little as parking on a steep hill and relying on the transmission cawl instead of the parking brake. The vehicle needs to be put up on a lift to check for obvious linkage problems--otherwise it gets more serious.

Bad speedometer

GM has a special coverage for the instrument cluster. 7 years, 70,000 miles or up to 80,000 miles you get the cluster and pay for the installation. Some dealers will install the cluster without charge anyway. They know the clusters are junk.

07187C this is the special coverage bulletin GM goes by.
