    no that is a totally seperate problem, read below about the reasons a check engine light comes on, and buy the way i wrote most of this.based on my 30 years of electronic engine control repair.







    Why my Check Engine/Service/Check Engines Soon light comes on?






    The engine computer or PCM/ECM


    All modern vehicles have a computer or the ECM (Electronic Control Module) that controls the operation of the vehicle powertrain (the engine and transmission). The main purpose of this is to keep the engine running at top efficiency with the lowest possible emissions. With constantly growing demands for better fuel economy and new strictest emission regulations it's not very easy to achieve. The engine parameters need to be constantly and precisely adjusted according to various conditions such as speed, load, engine temperature, gasoline quality, ambient air temperature, road conditions, etc. That's why today's cars have much more electronics than in early days - there is a large number of various sensors and other electronic devices that help the vehicle computer or ECM to precisely control the engine and transmission operation and monitor emissions.
    The vehicle computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at. To properly diagnose what is wrong, you need to take your car to a mechanic or a dealer. The technician at the dealership or a garage will then hook up the scanner to the car computer and retrieve the stored trouble code(s). Then he (she) will look it up in the service manual provided by a car manufacturer. The service manual contains the list of possible codes (about few hundreds) and describes what each code means and what needs to be tested. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, what engine parameter is out of normal range. The technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint a defective part.

My 2004 ford expedition message center is telling me I only have a mile left until E. I got gas this morning and it did not update the miles to E


What does you fuel gage say? Does it show it to be on empty? Your fuel tank sending unit may be going out on you.

If my fuel gage on my 2005 Chevy Aveo doesn't work, how do you fix it? This started @ 78,000 miles


If your mileage has dropped to half, I would be worried about what is wrong with the car. Chances are it is running very rich and using way more fuel than it should.

Odometer reading has changed on 2005 Sierra 1500 GMC truck


These year models are very bad with problems related to the gage cluster. You can replace but first I would reset the trucks computer by disconnecting and reconnecting the battery for about 20 minutes. This will reset the computer and maybe fix the reading on odo. Thanks.

2008 x5 v8 my gas gage and on board computer wrong readings


Faulty Fuel Pump, and run an injection cleaner into your gas tank (you can buy a bottle at your local parts shop) then get the fuel filters checked or replaced.

Chances are contaminated gas clogged your fuel works.

For a quick fix: Open the gas cap at 1/4 tank to relieve the vacuum. it will make your pump work less.
