Hi,


The check engine light comes on mostly when you have bad gas tank cup,or you don't tight enough the gasoline.Go to any auto-zone and request the obd scanner,at no charge just leave your driver license or credit card,connect the scanner follow the instructions.They will check up and the check engine light will come off in the next 3 to 5 days.


Thank you !!

Do you mean the Check Engine Light? If so you need to get the engine codes read with a OBD code reader! This is the only way to be sure of the problem area!

Starts then stops


The spark plugs may have become oil fouled. Nothing to worry about. Just replace the spark plugs, start the engine and let it idle for 10 minutes.

Warning light problem


Look for a 10amp fuse marked "indicator or Indic "
It may be in the fuse box in the passenger compartment or in the box in the engine compartment.
Keep in mind if the fuse is blown you will need someone to check for a short or the reason the fuse was blown.

1995 jetta oil light buzzer problem


You need to install an oil pressure gage. If the pressure is good then check the wiring to the sending unit. It could be a bad sending unit but don't replace it until you test the oil pressure. If you don't want to add the gage inside the car you could install it under the hood or use a manifold gage, it's mechanical so oil flows right to the gage instead of a sending unit, you don't leave it on the engine. Mechanics use them to test engines and transmissions. You can buy either at a auto parts store. If you have low oil pressure then either the pump is bad, the oil pump pick up screen is clogged, or the engine is worn out (bearings, valve guides, piston rings).

Oil light flashing here and there..weird


is it getting noisy... that's usually the first clue... to rule out anything serious have the oil pressure checked.

Hi, I have primera., i check the engine oil, and it's too low so i bought 4 ltrs of castrol engine oil and put all of them in the engine., and after driving the car for abt 3 miles smoke came from the tail...


If you low oil light is not illuminated it is ok to drive to the dealer. Putting 4 quarts in might have overfilled it leaving it to leak overboard on engine. You did not say that the smoke was coming from the tail pipe.
