SIMPLE YOU GET IT TUNED UP, OIL, FILTERS, SPARK PLUGS WIRES, AIR ELEMENT, ETC CHECK THE PC VALVE. THEN RESET OR REMOVE ONE OF THE BATTERY CABLES FOR 5 MINS AND HOOK IT BACK UP. BUT DONT GET ME FOR GRANTED IT CAN ALSO MEAN THAT YOU NEED A OXYGEN SENSOR OR OTHER PARTS. BUT REMOVE THE CABLE FOR 5 MINS AND SEE THEN WHAT HAPPENS. IF YOU HAVE SOME CODE ACTIVE IT WILL BE RIGHT. IF NOT YOUR NOT GONNA SEE THE LIGHT AT LEAST FOR A WHILE.

What causes co & hc readings to high


HC is raw or un burnt fuel. CO is incomplete combustion meaning the air fuel is burnt but not burnt completely. check O2 sensors for operation, fuel pressure, gas in oil or how long has it been since an oil change. check engine timing, dirty injectors. when was the last time a tune-up was done plug/wire condition is the air filter clean. just some things to check

well auto zone needs to diag cars like i need to be a brain surgen . what code do you have if its p2181 yout thermostat needs to be replaced what happens is the thermostat stays open too long and the engine sees that and it will set in about 2 to 3 drive cyles your pcm looks at all sensors all the time to keep emmisions down and your milage will pick up when it is replaced

Failed Emmission test


So you are saying the bulb for the check engine light is burned out and needs to be replaced ??
And the trouble codes you listed are for lean fuel mixture which could point to a vac leak or low fuel pressure.

How do you reset the computer so it can go through emmissions.


I would veture a guess the failure is an emission code problem and the conditions for the failed problem are not met. Make sure the fuel level is just below 3/4 full. That will allow the emissions tests to run. You can also disconnect the battery cable for 10 minutes and that will reset the fault counter.

I HAVE ALTIMA 99 AND MECHANIC CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO SOLVE MAP SENSOR PROBLEM. HE REPLACED THE MAP SENSOR, WHICH DIDN'T HELP-'SERVE ENGINE SOON' LIGHT GETS BACK ON AS SOON AS I SHUT AND RESTART ENGINE....


He's right both and the code is the EGR valve. The car won't run with the EGR valve removed but it may be disabled some way. Most of the time EGR vales leak or the senser line stopps up. There's a small medal ine coming up the the EGR senser from the exhaust and connects to the senser this line stops up and the senser knows something aught to be happing and it doesn't so it turns the light on. Your mechanic is right it's not hurting anything but it makes the light on. It can be fixed but it'll not run much different.

My service engine soon light stays on the car has 108,000 miles but runs great


Maybe something very simple for example a vacuum/air leak in the emmission system ie., manifold. The best way to fix this is to buy a code reader which will turn off the light and the diagnostic code will tell you whats wrong. You failed to say what year the car is so I cannot advise on the system. If it's fairely new 2000 or newer then it may have the OBDII system. Buy or rent the appropriate reader for your car. This will not fix the light problem unless the cause is fixed. but you will know how serious the problem is.

O2 sensor 1996 volvo fail emission test


If you have trouble codes stored in your cars computer for O2 sensors a fuse will not fix it. One or all of the O2's may need to be replaced. There are test that can be done to confirm which one.
