Question about 2006 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

Check engine light is on. recently had an oil change about 1 week ago. Filled up on Sunoco gas and a few days later the light came on. I have already done the gas cap thing. I have to make a business trip next week and I know that if it's the gas, it may take one full cycle of full before it right's itself. Should I wait or take it so the computer can get a reading?

2005 mazda 3 2.3l that is burning oil (no leaks)


possibly the pcv but check if your cars exhaust smoke is blueish or white in color if it does and your car doesnt have an oil leak then sure its burning engine oil along with fuel, the piston rings is defective, since you replaced engine oil the additive that the owner has put with the oil to prevent blowby is gone thats why it starts burning oil.....

Check engine light came on this morning, mazda 3 09', it has 14,500 miles, i just got an oil change at the dealership a few days ago, also i think the gas cap was a little bit loose i noticed the last time...


I would take it back to the dealer and tell them the check engine light came on not long after oil change. Have them run the code on their dime...it's a reasonable request!

A loose gas cap will defintely trigger the engine light, but in most cases, it will reset itself within one week. Some cars don't have a reset which forces you to have a mechanic reset it for you.

Oil light flashing, last oil change 7 wks ago


I belive they didn't reset the oil light timer. I belive the sequence is 1. key on (not acc with engine off)
2. step on the brake pedal 5 times within 10 seconds. 3. key off. 4. start car. 5. check if the light went out. you may have to try it a few times to get it.

Check engine light on for sometime; Response to throttle sluggish


If your catalytic converter is "below efficiency" or otherwise clogged, you will lose power as you drive and the vehicle heats. The more you drive the vehicle, the worse the problem will become. The exhaust can't escape properly through the catalytic converter, therefore your engine won't run properly. Your issues are related, and if you replace your catalytic converter they should go away.
