Check engine lights can be caused by many many things.Technology is usually good,but this light is not good(whoever developed the system).You could put it on a computer,it tells you what to check,you replace it,and it still stays on.I have seen it,also this.You could spend thousands on all kinds of stuff an it will still be on unless you get lucky.You should just check your fluids,oil,antifreeze(overlow container full to cold point)Transmission fluid(check that with car running after about 5 minutes),brake,steering,and any other fluids I may have left out.If it is not an issue for vehicle inspection in your state,I wouldn't worry about it.If you want to computer check it for peace of mind,that is fine too.Unless it starts running bad or overheating,no worries.If you ever do get overheating,if it even gets close to the red pull over and shut down.You will save your engine.Good luck!

You may want to check the speed sensor of the car. IT should be located in between the engine and the transmission. At high speeds if the ecu would not get any feedback from the sensor it would normally light up the check engine light.

Air Bag Light, Brake Light, & ABS Light came on in the dashboard.


Check and see if your alternator is charging
Low voltage will cause those lights to come on, as the computer is shutting down.

To check your alternator you will need a volt meter... WITH the engine running you should have about 14 volts coming out. IF NOT you need to replace the Alternator!

1998 Chevrolet Metro engine fails


is your check engine light on? If so, have it read from a neighborhood store (i.e. Checker, Autozone), they tend to do it for free. That will give you the reading on what it is. You may also want to take a look at your MAS air flow sensor. It will allow you to start your vehicle but will tell the engine that it is gasping for air and will shut down. (That is usually connected right after your air filter)

I've had the same problem on my 2001. It turned out to be the battery. Apparently the voltage had dropped to the point that the computer began to malfunction. I'd first go to a battery shop and have it checked under load before looking for other solutions.

Sounds like a mass air flow problem. It's located somewhere between the air filter and intake, but usually right after the air filter box.
Check to see that the big rubber hose there isn't cracked or ripped, check to see if the mass air flow wires aren't frayed or broken or disconnected.
Start with that, and ur check engine light must be on as well.
