Hello, sorry to hear you have broken down twice, that is always very stressful. It depends on what warning light has come on. Two very basic checks you can do yourself are make sure you have plenty of oil and plenty of coolant. The coolant is easy, just raise the hood and make sure there is enough fluid in the coolant reservoir. Then find the Oil Dipstick and check the oil level. Unless a filter is very clogged it shouldn't cause the light to come on. Sometimes a clogged filter can cause other problems which will cause the light to come on. If the oil and coolant are good, please leave a comment, and I will suggest your next move.

    Hello again, you are very welcome. It can be bad to let the vehicle go low on gasoline. What happens is the the "trash" which can be tiny particles of rust residue can be sucked into the fuel filter. If this is the case then a new fuel may be a good idea. Thanks for giving me more information, hopefully this fuel filter change helps, but if not there are other options.

    I completely understand your frustration. With multiple warning lights on, you might want to check your battery connections. Of course use all safety precautions. And a fuel filter might enable the car ti run long enough for you to drive it to somewhere to have the Diagnostic Trouble Codes checked.

    You are very welcome. I wish I could help more but the codes would be a great help in diagnosing this problem. If I can be of any further assistance please ask.

Hit a bump on the road and the engine cuts out. No warning, no warning lights. Engine starts normally after that.


Check to see that your battery is secured. See if you can wiggle it. Make sure all battery terminal connections are tight, and all ground wires.

Have an 04 lancer. Oil light comes on sometimes just flickers, but only after warmed up and at an idle. driving down the road the light stays off. Oil never low and just changed with filters, brand new...


Replace the oil pressure sender. The sender is what is turning the warning light on.If you replace the oil pressure sender it should fix the flickering light problem. If it does not , the light is an indication of more serious motor killing problem. Fortunately, the sender is under $10 and usually fails before the actual oil pump.

1997 VW 2.0 Engine Air filter / check engine light


Sounds like it could be a mass airflow sensor failure. Take your car do your reputable mechanic and have them scan your computer to find out what the error code is, and then go from there. If it says that the mass airflow sensor is offline, I would look to make sure that the connector is properly secured on the air intake hose.
