Engine management light reset


The car is trying to tell you something - limp mode is there to protect the engine if a serious problem is detected. Stop driving it and get someone out to scan the codes and diagnose this.

Had car scanned codes PO601 came up 1x code Po420 came up twice. sum say the ECM going out


code p 0601refers to engine control module (ECM)--memory check--sum error=== causes --ECM
code p 0420 refers to cat converter system bank 1--efficiency below threshold===causes cat converter --wiring --- heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) in exhaust manifold before cat converter
At this point get a known good ECM unit and substitute it for the old one as all indications are a problem ECM unit

Have the on board computer scanned for trouble codes. There is now way to determine the cause of the check engine light without the codes.

Reduced engine power


hi there my name is don i will try to help you on this
when your reduced engine light comes on that means there is a active fault code in one of the sensors that is cusing this
you will have to get it scanned or retreive the codes from the dash

once you shut it off and turn it back on it temporarly resets until the diagnostics go through it again and it will reduce the power to the engine
it could be something simple like a gas cap or tire pressure but you will have to get it scanned to find out
thanks

Gas Light comes on


Hi,

The amount of mile that you can drive after your gas light comes on differs from car to car. Most cars have around 2 gallons in the reserve tank. Generally you should be able to go 50 miles after the gas light comes on, but that's pushing it. Of course sometimes you can go much more, but that depends on the type of driving you are doing (city or highway, is it a flat road & the condition of your car).

Sediments sink to the bottom of the gas tank & I don't like the thought that these get sucked into my engine, I think you would like to avoid as much as possible replacing your cars engine.

Calculate the size of your reserve tank

1) Read the car manual.
2) The moment your light comes on, fill the tank to the very top, now subtract the number of gallons you filled from the size of your gas tank, and you have the size of your reserve tank.


If you like adventures, and you know your car mpg, the moment the light comes on, bring your trip meter to zero, & drive the car till it comes to a stop. Now you know both the estimated miles you can go on your reserve tank & you can calculate its size. Make sure you have a can of gas in your trunk, to fill up after the car stops. This is the least recommended solution.

I don't recommend pushing it beyond 50 miles after the gas light comes on.

All the best.
