I bet it is the evap canister purge valve, I just finished fixing mine today. It is located behind the drivers side rear wheel. Remove rear wheel and tou will see it on your right side. Remove the hose and the wire harness, and turn valve counterclockwise to remove. Soak it in warm soapy water and then spray with WD40. Make sure that the spring and thin rubber membrane inside if valve is moving freely before putting it back on, I used a 2" nail to gently move the spring and rubber membrain. Dealership wants 300 to 400 dollars to do this, and it only took me about 20 minutes.

Service engine soon light only comes on when a sensor has failed or responded to slow to the computer,Sensors
are telling your computer that that your emissions are not at peak performance.you will have to have a code checker hooked up to your car to find which sensor it is.

Service engine light on my Infinity 2001 QX4 4WD goes on and stays on usually for a couple of weeks then stays off for weeks, the code shows up as 420-430 which I think is catalytic converter, it's been...


The Service Engine Light means, time for an oil change and other regular maintainance items like engine air filter, check all other fluids, lube chassis, it's a reminder to take care of your car. When the maintainence is done, then you or whoever works on it resets the light, and it will come on again at the next proper interval. Every 3000 miles or 3 months whichever comes first is the standard.
Take good care of your car, it will cost you a bit, but your car will be happy and it will take good care of you. Neglect your car, it'll cost you much much more and you'll be sorry.

I have 27000 miles on my Nissan Sentra (2006) 1.8S. For the last 3 months the "service engine soon light" has been staying on. I checked the gas cap, which clicked. But the light stays on. ...


Its telling you that you have a recommended service coming up at 30K miles. The dealer will reset the light when you bring the car in. Nissan recommends you to do your maintence's every 7500 miles. A 30K service will consist of an oil change, change air filter, coolant flush, replace PCV valve, in cabin air filter, along with checking many other systems in your vehicle. Hope this helps.

When I start my 2001 alero the anti-lock, traction light, service engine soon, service vehicle soon lights all stay on all the time. But my car seems to be running fine. Why is this?


the anti-lock and traction lights will come on together if there is a common problem with the two, since they are closely related. may be a wheel speed sensor or something similar. the service engine soon light indicates a problem with the engine computer, can be anything from an emission system problem or an engine performance problem. all of these lights can come on with no apparent running problems on the car. the service vehicle soon light is basically a maintenance reminder, an oil change light. take the car into a shop and have the codes read for these lights.

1998 Cheverolet Lumina, ''service engine soon'' and hard gear shift


I doubt the two problems are connected. I would try a new gas cap and see what happens since it runs fine. The service engine soon light won't reset on it's own right away.
