Question about 1994 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

The Check engine light comes on periodically, but goes off with a restart of the engine. An independent mechanic told me it would be $150 to diagnose the problem. Is there a less expensive approach?

Could my engine be gone it my car stopped and engine light came on?

If the check engine light has illuminated then you need to have the fault codes read from the OBD to know exactly what the cause is! There could be a whole host of reasons for this light coming on.

I have a 2008 Ford F-150 4x4 , 5.4 litre engine and the battery light came on so I had it diagnosed and was told to replace the alternator . It caused multiple trouble codes to come on as well so I...

The signal for charging system goes from the generator to the PCM, then to the instrument panel gauge. If that signal is lost or the PCM is sending a false signal the light will come on. Unfortunately, there is no way to check that without a Ford IDS scanner through a dealer. It may have a bad wire or bad PCM. I have seen loose terminals or broken wires from wiring connector at alternator. I would definitely check there before going to a dealer though.

Service engine soon light, loosing engine power light comes on. I hear signals going off. I feel the engine losing power. I pull over and engine dies. I wait a few minutes and it restarts. I drive it...

Sounds like you need to find another mechanic. A dirty throttle wont cause a loss of power. Sounds like fuel pump to me, but you need to have a competent mechanic check the codes, and check the fuel pressure when its acting up.

Check Engine Light came on after getting gas.

Get the computer scanned to start. If your cap was loose, and the check engine light did come on for that, your vehicle would still run fine. You may have bad gas, but that is an assumption unless you take a sample of it.
So, my advise, get it scanned to see why the light has gone on.

Check engine Light is on for a while, then goes off

hi the engine check light is telling u that a sensor on your engine or tranmisson is faulty it needs to have the fault codes checked by a mechanic.
