How do I read the trouble codes? Do I need an external reader? I notice that several of them use a database starting with 1996. I am specifically needing to read the transmission codes. Thanks

What does check engine light mean on a 1996 Buick Century?

Check for applicable trouble codes? To check codes yourself, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader. Some of the national brand auto stores will check po codes for free. I don't know if they will check manufacturer specific codes?

How to access trouble code

year vehicle manufactured? if 1996 & later, OBDII scanner to be plugged into a port (typically, should be near the steering column, under the dash).
older models may have OBDI (no standard location of port) scanner specific to the make of the vehicle. search the web, on how to read manually (or without scanner) the code by counting the number of blinks of the MIL (malfunction Indicator light) (aka check engine, or service engine soon).

Code 4 and engine lite on

If the check engine light is on there will be OBDII and manufacturer specific codes. These codes start with a letter and are followed by four numbers (P0304 for example). These codes can only be read by an OBDII code reader or a scan tool. These are the codes you need to get in order to start trouble shooting your vehicles problem.

When I turn ignition,.vehicle starts, but immediately cuts out and engine shuts down when I take my foot off the gas. Could it be a loose throttle cable affecting my idle?

It could be related to several engine management components, it is very hard to say unless a trouble code reader is connected to the vehicle and scanned for trouble codes. This is the first this a tech would do after a visual inspection. Any reputable auto center will check for a diagnostic code for free, it is not hard to do.

My 1996 honda accord check engine light came on and it started to idle like the spark plugs have went bad. can you give me an idea of what the problem might be?

Not yet. The check engine light coming on is letting you know that the self diagnostic function of the engine computer has detected a problem and set a trouble code. That code can be read by a code reader. Most major auto parts stores have these code readers and will read your code for free. The code number can tell you/us where to start looking for the problem.

Stopped running. towed home. alternator tested bad. replaced. van ran for about 10 minutes. stalled. started and did same thing several times. now will only crank. tried adding gas and gas treatment in...

Did you charge the battery after replacing the alternator? Is the check engine light on? If so, rent a code scanner and read out any trouble codes. That should point you in the general and maybe specific direction to help track down the problem. Hope this helps!

I cant figure out whats wrong with my 1996 jeep cheroke country i have replaced the battery.starter,rotor,distributor cap,coil,crankshaft sensor,and none of these were the problem please help!

Are there any trouble codes stored in the computers memory? A code reader will allow you to read trouble codes if any exist. This is the first place any tech would start a diagnosis, otherwise we will only be guessing a repair solution.

Car keeps stalling

A fault code reader would be a huge help in diagnosing general problems.
It plugs in under left side dash and gives specific failure codes (this is what mechanics use).
You can buy an OBD-I code reader (for most cars before 96) or a OBD-II which reads all cars from 1996-on online for $80. It will also reset faults or engine trouble lights.

You may want to check your fuel pressure with a gauge.
