Question about 2006 Mitsubishi Colt

Service Engine Soon

I bought car 7 years ago brand new and never experinced any problems. However, less than a year ago the "Service Engine" light came on (and stayed on for a few days) then turned off. This tends to happen sporatically. Car never cuts out, lags, etc. Any ideas as to why this particualr light comes on? I have noticed the rpm clock not work like it should when I'm driving vehcile with service engine light is on.

With no noticeable change in performance, chances are that the problem is a failing oxygen sensor - which will affect pollution output and possibly cause your car to fail its next safety inspection, and the tach failure indicates a possible cam sensor failure. The only way to tell for certain though is to have the car's computer scanned. Your mechanic can do this (for a price), and many parts stores will run a limited scan at no cost (in the hope of selling you something).

You can have the code checked when its on, but check the fuel cap for integrity

I have a 2001 L100 seires Saturn and My service light and the security light both are on and the car wont start. the battery seems to be fine all the lights work i left it alone for a while and it started...


No, the fuel gauge not working wouldn't have anything to do with your not starting problem , probably the gauge is bad . With the SECURITY light lit , anti-theft system problem ! Service light ????? Service engine soon ? Or service vehicle ? With the light's on code's DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes are stored . Have it checked , don't guess as to what the problem is. This would prevent the buying of un needed parts .

My 2006 Honda Fit shudders whenever I drive off


Hope this would be of help to anyone facing judder or sudden vibration (in quick succession) whenever you accellerate (pick up):

Bought my Honda City/ Fit Aria Year 2005 Vtec brand new and drove for 7 years;
I experienced the above said problem in 2010, changed a set of 4 brand new original Honda (Made in Thailand) plug coils (please refer attached picture) and the problem came back after just 18 months.
Again I had them replaced but this time I bought used ones from "half-cuts" car yard (those junkyards that deal with half cut cars like half Front part & half Rear part of any cars) because those half cut Honda City/Fit Aria's engines are from Japan and the coils that I salvaged are of BETTER Longer Lasting Quality !


Important Note: VTEC Engine - Plug Coils X4 pieces;
: I-DSI Engine - Plug Coils X8 pieces.


From where I came from its Quite Expensive when I replaced the brand new Thai-made coils....almost USD300.00 inclusive labor but those USED ones only set me back by less than USD115.00 all in. I-DSI owners have to fork-out DOUBLE due to 8 spark plugs in their engines !!

I have had a pinging under my hood since I bought my ES 350 brand new two years ago I complained and complained after 52000 miles they just called and they are picking up my car and replacing the cam shaft...


There have been very limited issues with this engine, often times they are sporadic and hard to pinpoint, but Lexus takes the correct approach, rather than leave you hanging. Once an intermittent problem comes to light they will work very hard to make you happy, as long as they can pinpoint it. Tolerance for assembly in a Lexus is 3 times as stringent as a Toyota, you are driving the number 1 brand in reliability 14 years running
The 3.5 liter engine is shared by the GS, best selling RX and the IS350 and several Toyota vehicles as well.. It is VERY reliable but the odd one has an issue.
Relax , enjoy your free loaner and the ES when it returns...for many more miles.....You said it all , they are picking up the car for you, that is service!!!!!

Service engine soon & brake light stays on


the service engine light is prob due to the oxygen sensor being damaged, not replace or you having the catalytic converter taken off---just messing with you. start at auto zone and have then do a free code read then go from there. you should troubleshoot the low fluid level switch for your brake fluid. unplug it and see if the light goes off and if it doesn't jump the two terminals on the harness. oh the car will have to be running.
