The check engine light is on, and it's starting to beep every time I start the car. Is there anything I can do, or is this something only a mechanic can fix.

I have an orange light in the dashboard. It does

you might have to get gas. if it goes away after you fill up, its your gas light telling you you need fuel. or it could be your engine light. ifit is oddly shaped and illuminates after you start and when you start your engine needs service. probably low coolant, low oil or something has caused it to go off. you will have to go to a mechanic and get you cars computer checked. as it will tell you whats wrong. tip: don't buy anything the mechanics tell you you need after they fixed your problem. they are lying and trying to get more money out of you. as you are obviously inexperienced and they will take advantage of you.

04 Jeep liberty can only feel air conditoner when jeep is moving the other day the jeep beeped thee times and the overheated engine light was on now its off

Sounds like a fan issue. The engine and A/C are only being cooled when the vehicle is moving and air is flowing across the radiator and condenser. I would start car with hood up and check that fans cycle on as the engine gets warmer and a/c is turned on. Don't let it get too hot, and keep clear of fans and moving parts.

1999 Z# 2.3. at times, car starts hard (3-5 seconds cranking) and when it starts, the check engine light comes on. Sometimes, the car will then stall. Other times, the car runs find and re-starts just...

ask a local mechanic to have a look for you ,could be a problem with anything and everything to be honest and really it needs a expert eye to sort it out as its one of them on and off things so i would suspect electrical but it could be non return valve in the servo feed pipe even .

I had the instrument cluster replaced in my 2000 windstar and now the engine is knocking.Engine light comes on for about three days and then it goes off.What could be wrong with my vehicle?

I don't think your gauge cluster has anything to do with your engine knock. I do, however, think that your engine knock has something to do with your check engine light. Start by checking your oil level. A knock could be something simple, or it could be something serious. Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to diagnose a 'knock' without being able to actually HEAR it first-hand, so I'll just throw you a few bones. If you live in a colder climate (especially this time of year) you might want to ask a certified mechanic what weight oil you should be running. A lack of oil to the top end of the engine could cause a knock. Bad gas could cause a knock (fill tank at a different station than the last one you went to). A timing issue could also cause a knock. If the knock persists or gets worse, take it to a mechanic for a diagnosis immediately. If the simple fixes don't do it, it won't get any better on its own.
