Question about 2003 Dodge Sprinter

1 Answer

My check engine light came on so I went to O Reillys and had them hook it to the computer. The computer said it was just a mileage warning and it had no codes do all was fine. As soon as I started it to leave their lot it started smoking and had little power. Do you think it's the throttle positioning sensor?

Sounds more like an O2 Sensor or just a coincidence that you lost a seal or something that is allowing oil into the exhaust. The Smoke tells me it's oil in the Exhaust as in most cases with an O2 sensor you would just get an odor of Fuel because it was flooding.

Why would engine light,cruise control and abs light come on?


hello,do post your DTC'S,(diagnostic trouble codes) and may be i can help.many modern vehicles spring up a multitude of warning icon's on the dashboard,much to the alarm of it's owner,however,often it can be as simple as a dirty wheel speed sensor,which fails to provide the necessary information to the main (ABS/TRACTION control unit) and so then will inhibit the cruise control,as naturally it's unable to ascertain road wheel speed,and also throw up the engine management light,as the braking/traction control systems unable to supply correct information to the main engine computer(ECU,OR PCM) electronic control unit/power control module. hope this helps,but please supply any further information that you can,regarding your DTC'S, that are read out,try to get a full print off,if at all possible, cheers.

Chek apears on dashboard


You would need to know which warning light you are dealing with.
CHECK could be a check engine light, or check gauges light.
A check engine light means the computer sees a problem with the performance of the engine that can affect fuel mileage or emissions.

Will the check engine light come on, at or after 60000 miles


The check engine light has nothing to do with any certain mileage, it is warning light that comes on when the on board computer (called the PCM) has sensed a problem with the the engine, emission system many components performance, it is called the OBD2 (on board diagnostics generation 2) system.

My 98 accord check engine light flashes off and on and the car is sputtering pretty badly. what could be the cause of this??


There could be a million different causes. I recommend taking to Reillys, Autozone or another of the myriad of places that will code read your computer to find the problem.

My vsc trac warning light and check engine light went on


Please, make your mechanic check the ABS computer. My RAV4 did the same thing, but the mechanical components were alright. After a while, I almost fell off a cliff because my brakes stopped responding properly. When further checked, my mechanic discovered that the ABS computer was damaged. The part alone costs a whooping $3 thousand bucks, not including labor. So, beware and take precautions. Your life may be endangered.

Check engine light on; Gas milage went from 19 to 15, emission ba


YES!!, you had it tuned, it runs good, but gas mileage dropped, and check engine light is on,it sounds like the o2 sensors are slow or even dead, i would replace them for sure and that just might solve all your problems,good luck, hope this helps.

in each wheel you have a traction control sensor that feeds info to the computer. You may have pinched one of the wires. I also had the same thing happen and found that was the answer.
