Code 6 = ECT Sensor (Engine Coolant Temperature) defective circuit or unplugged / defective sensor

Usually will be the wiring. Check the two wires just by the connection at the head (wire color should be red/white and green/white). If I dont mistake, it's on the thermostat housing.

When this condition exists, just trying to start it will dump in excessive amounts of fuel and flood the cylinders. Correct the wiring and then you may have to dry out the spark plugs.

Hope helps.

Where are theOBD O2 sensor heater code po161 for a 1998 chevy. Silverado v 6


That is P0161 (letter "P" and four numbers)
P0161 Oxygen O2 Sensor Circuit Low ( engine cylinder bank 2 sensor #2)
What does that mean? This diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is a generic powertrain code, which means that is applies to OBD-II equipped vehicles. Although generic, the specific repair steps may vary depending on make/model.
It basically means the PCM detected either an excessive current draw, or an open or short in the circuit powering the oxygen sensor's heater circuit. This is in reference to the Heated Oxygen Sensor (2) located rear of catalytic converter (Bank 2).
A code P0161 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • HO2S heater power circuit open
  • HO2S heater ground circuit open
  • HO2S signal tracking (due to oil or moisture in the connector)
  • HO2S is damaged or has failed PCM has failed

What does the code P0011 mean and located


The code p0011 is for the intake camshaft position actuator performance.Some of the simple things to look for is make sure the oil level is where it should be and the condition of the oil is also crucial.This means that if the oil is not changed periodically.Which is about every 3 thousand miles.There is 1 actuator on each camshaft.One on the intake and one on the exhaust cam.If you are not familiar with the camshaft actuators you should take it to a reputable repair shop.Hope this info helped you.Good luck.

The engine warning light wont go off, (Mazda 6) even after oil, water and coolant have been added. is it time for an oil change?


Yes it is time for an oil filter and oil change specially if there is a lapse of over 10 months or a mileage of more than 5000 miles clocked since the last oil change.

Orange wrench light on all the time, what does this mean.


Hi, this light usually means it is time for service, or vehicle needs a repair.
You will need to have someone plug in a scan tool to retrieve a code, or you can pull up to an Autozone Parts store and they can pull any trouble codes from the vehicle. This is a free service they offer.

03 Mazda 6: Check engine light on, code po174


The oil pressure sensor does not have much to do with the P0174 code so the leak on the gasket is not the cause, usually it is the air mass sensor, or the intake sensor. if you have a leak of oil, this might as well mean that whoever changed the oil did not put the right specs of it and this caused the oil to get through. After some time you will experience that the rpms will reach only certain level and won't go higher. Change oil to the right specs and get the sensor cleaned if not to late or replaced (will be expensive). Gasket change wil be needed as well.

P0442 check engine light code


The computer that read the code for you can also reset it.  If you don't have one, you can go to your local auto parts store and have them reset it for you.  This is what your code means P0442 Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (small leak).  This is what Causes it and possible fixes: CausesA code P0442 most likely means one or more of the following has happened:
  • A loose or improperly affixed gas cap
  • A non-conforming gas cap (i.e. not factory/original brand)
  • A small leak/hole in a fuel vapor hose/tube
  • Other small leak in EVAP system
  • Faulty vent o-ring seal
Possible SolutionsWith a P0442, the most common repair is to:
  • Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the codes, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
  • Otherwise, replace the gas cap, or
  • Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses

Service engine soon light on. failed aircare.showing code po341 .


The service engine light DOES NOT mean change your oil. The change oil or maintence required light means change oil. The service engine light is the same as a check engine light and means that there is something (not always really bad) is going on with your motor and need someone that has a code reader to let you know what the code is. Yes that code is a camshaft position sensor code. It is located on the passenger side of the engine in the "valley" between the two cyclinder heads. Its not too hard as long as you have some tools and some skills. Its easiest to remove the serpentine belt and remove the bolts for the power steering pump. That way you can move the pump a little to gain better access to remove the cam sensor. Just replaced one yesterday on a 99 century. Hope that helps!
