The check engine light is only telling that an error or problem had been encounter and you have a code to read. any discount auto parts store can borrow you a odb reader, connect it to the car, and find what is the error code.
once you know what is the error number, its easier to find what is the problem. it can be anything.

How to reset engine light chevrolet traverse 2011


The check engine light arises when ECU finds any fault in the vehicle. Check for error code using On- Board Diagnostic system and then repair the codes.

Have a professional reset by on board diagnostic: You can tell any professional mechanic who have on board diagnostic system to reset the check engine light. The mechanic would not charge you with any penny.

If you do not want to try any of the above method then try hard resetting the check engine light; for hard resetting, follow the steps below:

1. Remove the battery terminals

2. Switch on the lights and press the horn for few minutes until last bit of electricity is drained.

3. When the horn stops working, you can now connect the battery again.

I HAVE A 2001 CHEVY CAVALIER 84,675.00MILES . THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON AND HAS BEEN CHECKED BY A MECHANIC SEVERAL TIMES. I REPLACED THE GAS CAP. THE CODES KEEP COMING UP A READING OF P4400. ...


P0440 is a large evap leak, so it should be pretty obviuos. first check if the vent valve is closing. then check when the purge valve is closed that its not leaking. He needs to COMMAND the vent valve closed and then smoke it. He should be able to command purge and close the vent valve, then turn off the purge and watch the vacuum level to know if its fixed or not.

I have a 1999 ford taurus and i've replaced my egr valve about 2 years ago. i reset the computer and it stayed off for about 3 weeks then the check engine light came back on. I went to have the code...


You may be able to remove the egr valve and spray brake cleaner, carb cleaner, or let it soak in something like seafoam for about 15 mins and the spray it with brake or carb cleaner. This works for me. Good Luck

How to Clear a Check Engine Light and Reset the Computer.


you can use the scanner to clear the computer or even disconnect the battery for a minute or two then reconnect it but if the light comes back it needs to be fixed to keep the light off. just fixing the problem won't turn the light off

Check engine light stays on even after we have it checked


The mechanic is only clearing the codes for you.Witch will get the light out for you.But he isn't telling you your fault. knowing the light will come back on in time.Change the mass air flow meter.Then get the coeds cleared.You can remove and clean the EGR valve.if that is causing the problem.

I have mercedes ml 430. check engine came on at the same time fuel warning light was blinking. took the car to authorized mechanic, they checked and found po455ctrl system grass leak. they reset the check...


no
it is more likely that the problem is in the EVAP system
code p 0455 refers to evaporative emission(EVAP)system---large leak detected ====causes --hose connections ---intake leak---EVAP cannister---EVAP canister purge valve
I would suggest to you to tell the mechanic to replace the EVAP purge valve as the problem is more likely to be that than the fuel tank
