The engine light just came on ....what could it be?


run the fault codes first to determine the failure
engine lights report on engine and transmission
check coolant levels , sump oil levels, over heating, transmission oil levels for obvious problems and the codes will report on sensors and the like

I have a 2004 Mazda 3. The car started revving on its own even while driving. Now the engine light and AT light is on. What does this mean?


This is not an uncommon problem on the Mazda 3 autos of various years and it is an automatic transmission related problem even though the check engine light comes on when the AT light displays.. The AT light is a warning that there is an issue with the auto transmission.

You will probably also find the auto transmission is not changing as it should or not going onto particular gears and the increases in engine RPM when driving is caused by a problem with the transmission.

The cause is primarily neglected maintenance of the transmission by owners .

If you stop the car and restart it you might find the warnings go away and the car starts behaving normally for a very short time. The problems will definitely come back and both warnings lights will come back and the auto trans will start playing up again.

If you do not address the problem the computer system could send the vehicle into limp mode or stop it altogether as a preventative measure to save the transmission from damage. You need to take the car to Mazda service and have them check it over with their diagnostic equipment. They have seen all this before with the transmissions in other Mazda 3s/. For this issue I would strongly recommend you don't take the car to some independent unless the business is a very competent specialist in Mazda vehicles.

Transmission


Could be TCC solenoid, or something similar. Check computer for trouble codes. Even though it's transmission related, it will still trigger a check engine light and store a code in the ECM.

2006 pt cruiser. check engine light comes on, automatic transmission will not shift out of 2nd gear. does not do it all the time though. Computer Problem?


The check engine light means there is a trouble code has occured.Even if the problem clears itself,the code is still stored as a history code.if you want to know what that code is,you can buy a cheap code scanner for about 50 bucks.I bought one out of the Harbor Freight catalog made buy Cen-Tech.It comes with a code book that only gives you engine trouble codes,but the scanner will also read transmission codes(I have to do a Google search on these to know what they are).Hey,it was cheap! This thing has paid for itself 10 times already!

Nissan Sentra 2005 lags in changing 1st to 2nd gear


You need to have the systems computer tested for fault codes, that is the very 1st thing that needs to be done. If they rebuilt the transmission for $900 they did not replace very many parts or do a through job, the average cost is more like $2500.00

Even though you replaced the sensor, and the light went out, the computer still retains the original codes until the codes are cleared using a scan tool. It's possible the computer has put the engine in a reduced power mode because the trouble codes haven't been cleared.

What does it mean when your gear shift indicator in d position starts blinking?


this means you have a problem in the transmission. just like a check engine light. the pilots have alot of problems with the transmission. usually if you have less than 100k. the dealership has to replace the trans for free

Transmission doesn't shift and the speedometer doesn't go over 40 mph


Do you have a check engine light, or is the O/D or Trans light flashing? I've had a similar problem on a Dodge and it was a sensor on the transmission body. It triggered a check engine light. Autozone read the code and even found the replacement part for me.
