Next time the light is on, stop by any autozone where they can pull code's for free and get back with us so we can help you diag. your trouble code, the light come's on because your computer pick up a bad signal from one of your engine sensor's, but the light has to be on to be able to get a code from your system.

When the service engine soon light goes on any car, it's a good idea to have the car's computer scanned.

Your car has an OBD-I system which is older, and so you must find someone with an OBD-I scanner who can read the codes off and maybe find a clue.

I would start there. Some codes may be recorded in the memory.

Why is the muffler turning red on a pontiac grand am se


You've got a lot of unburnt fuel getting into your exhaust or the catalytic converter may have failed too. I would expect the "check engine" or "service engine soon" light is on.

How do you remove the "Service Engine Soon" on a


the check engine light alerts you that there are problems. There will be a code or codes stored in the engines computer. You can retrieve these codes one of three ways.

1. call your local auto parts store. Many times they will do this for free.

2. buy an inexpensive code reader. Available just about anywhere that has an automotive department. They will start at about $50.

3. Bring it in to a shop to have a check engine light diagnostic done.

Once you know the code you can then start to focus on a repair. Once a repair is made the codes will be cleared and the check engine light will turn off. If you do not make the repairs the light will not stay off. It will continue to come on and stay on until the proper repair is made.

My change oil light never goes off even though I had it changed and now my service vehicle soon light is on even though its been running fine


The change oil light needs to be reset after each oil change...some shops are not knowledgeable on how to do this...Your owners manual will instruct you how to reset the oil change light...The service engine soon is a catch all for low fluids and other needs...Be sure to check your oil level again...to clear the service engine soon light, you can disconnect either battery cable for 15 minutes then reconnect...if the service engine stays on...then you need to have your Grand Am checked...Auto Zone does a free diagnostic of check engine light codes...:)

The SERVICE ENGINE SOON light in my 1995 Pontiac firebird has been blinking for about a month and one day it just stayed on. At the same time the engine began to shake and now whenever it starts up it...


If your service engine light is on that means that you can find the problem by having a local garage run an engine diagnostics test,it usually runs around 50 bucks and is much easier than trying to find the problem yourself,and most of the time it is cheaper !

Sounds like you have a bad wheel speed sensor. You need to have it scanned. Since it's been sitting, it might just be a bad connection to one of the speed sensors.

There are 2 things that will cause this to happen. 1. The thermostat needs to be replaced and, 2. The coolant sensor can be bad. When I had this problem, I changed them both at the same time, she been just fine since then. Also, I had the check engine light on, and got the code from AutoZone (it's free!)
