This is the key-in-the-ignition test:

Locate your check engine light on your dash/cluster. When you initially turn the key on (but not starting the car>) does this light up, and show "power limited" "power Loss" or "check engine" ? If so, proceed to the next step. If not, pull the cluster out of the dash, and replace lights in the dash accordingly.

With the CEL (check engine light/power limited light) known good, and illuminated, shut the car off.

Now turn the key to the "on" position (not start) and then turn it back one click to "off" (but not lock - the position where you can remove your key)

Then turn it back on, then off. Then turn it on, and leave it on. You need to do this on-off-on-off-on procedure within 5 seconds of the initial key "on". This is referred to as the "key dance" or "Checking for Codes"

Now once turned "on" for the 3rd time (the last step in the dance) the check engine light should be illuminated. It will take a few seconds, then shut off.

Keep watching it, and eventually it will start flashing (the speed of flashing is variant on thevehicle>, I have found some are faster/slower at these flashes than others)

As soon as it flashes, you will notice it will flash, maybe pause, then flash again. The number of flashes it flashes on the CEL is how you retrieve codes. It will always flash in quicker sucession for the first digit, make a pause, then flash again for the second digit.

All codes are double digits, remember this.

Say for instance, you disconnect the battery, reconnect it, and then try to retrieve codes before you crank the car. This will show a code "11" which is "no crank signal after loss of battery power" So that code would show up like this -

(after the initial CEL illumination, and shutoff) pause - flash - pause - flash (pause - 1 - pause - 1)

Same for other codes. a 23 will look like this - pause - flash-flash - pause - flash-flash-flash - pause

SOURCE: Do a mechanic need to raise engine to get to oil


  • On a 1995 Dodge 600 no, not at all. You can just raise the front end up, set it on some jack stands and and drop the pan. No prepping has to be done to drop the oil pan.

1985 dodge 600 turbo white exhaust only on startup


this usually indicates worn valve seals, when you park enough oil drips onto the pistons and when you start it, the engine burns off the oil first.
I don't think the parts are that much but the labor can add up
Ask if they have the means to replace them without removing the head, this means they use air pressure in the spark plug hole to hold the valve in place while they replace the seals,this way it is a same day repair and should only take a couple of hours
