My check engine light came on, 'i had it read, the read said that the coils were bad, I filled the gas tank and the light went off, what's wrong?


Hard to say. The gas cap might have been loose. That will turn the Chk Eng light on. When you filled the gas tank you made the cap tight again.

Get the codes read again if the light comes on again.

sounds like your canister vent valve is blocked or the charcoal canister is flooded with fuel. if you drive alot of dirt roads you can clog this vent valve causing backpressure in the tank. you may have to go to a reputable service shop so they can test the evaporative emissions system and get an accurate diagnosis.

My 1994 Mercedes c220's fuel gauge stopped working


Fuel level sensor is in the gas tank, may be faulty or just dirty, make sure to fill the tank entirely full with premium unleaded, ad a high quality fuel system cleaner / de-gunker, this may clean the sensor enough to feed back to the gauge. It could also be the fuel gauge itself, but that is less likely. Mercedes will be happier with at least 1/4 tank of fuel at all times, and don't skimp on low octane gas!
As for the check engine light, you may have a bad gas cap... believe it or not a gas cap that doesn't seal properly will throw the check engine light. If you get the codes read (for free) at an Autozone or similar parts store it will likely read "evap system" as the problem, which will likely end up being the gas cap.
Take your car to a service center that does a true "flush and fill" of your a/c system. Those little canisters will just waste your money, and they never truly clean and re-lubricate the system like a flush and fill will do.

My Mazda MPV randomly begins to "chug" and act like it will die at a stop. the check engine light comes on. Started about 6 months ago. Seems to happen more when it rains. If I tighten the gas cap it stops...


the gas cap and check engine light thing are related in terms of the EVAP system, or the evaporative emisions system. This is NOT where your surge, or "chug" is coming from. The surge could be coming from a Exhaust Gas Recurculation valve that is starting to bind or "hang up" a bit. DO you notice this happens more at lights, or when coming to a stop? if so it could be an idle air control vavle.

2 PART QUESTION, PARKING LIGHTS IN FRONT NOT WORKING AFTER REPLACING WITH WORKING BULBS, BACK LIGHTS WORK .... REPLACED THERMOSTAT HEATER STILL NOT BLOWING AS WARM AS IT SHOULD GOES FROM COLD TO WARM BUT...


Concerning the heater problem.Sounds like you have an air pocket in the system.To remove the air pocket take off the radiator cap in the morning when the car is cold,fill radiator to top.Start the car.Turn on heater to high.Allow car to run until it gets to operating temperature.Now you will see the fluid in the radiator start to go down.This means the thermostat is opening.As fluid goes down fill radiator to top (with 50/50 antifreeze/water mix).You may have to wait a moment for it to continue to move down.Once it stops and the radiator fluid isnt going down,slowly bring up the rpm's (by either turning the throttle with your hand or have someone put their foot on the gas) to about 2000rpms and hold the rpm's there steady.As you hold the fluid will go down a little more.As it does fill to the top again and quickly put the radiator cap back on while the rpm's are steady at 2000.After the cap is correctly on release throttle.This should remove the air posket.

My check engine light came on on the right side, and then my fuel gage went bonkers. I was in park and the fuel gage went to empty. I turned off and then it took awhile to come back up to full. I filled up...


I hope you did not top it off because filing it up like that will wreck havoc on the evap system. The engine light should go away as the gas in your tank is used up, or it may take some time, but hopefully it goes away. Just next time you fill up don't top off when it clicks off thats it. Also make sure the gas cap is tight. A loose gas cap can make the check engine light come on. I am an emmission repair specialist, and deals with these crazy things sometimes lol.

Check engine keeps coming on, i dont see anything wrong with engine, but i have a locked gas cap and the last time i put gas in and sealed it back up the next morning the check engine light was gone


The fuel tank and lines is a pressurized system that is monitored by the computer and will set a emission code if there is a leak or you fill your tank with the vehicle running.

Trac off and check engine light for lexus es 300 check engine & trac control off lights & engine stutters while revving in park. Engine seems fine in drive... Reset lights without them returning...


A week ago, on my Lexus ES 300 (2001), "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights came on. This coincided with me filling the gas tank to the brim to round the dollar to be paid. I cleaned the gas tank cap and the tank opening. However, both lights persisted. On the same day, when I turned on the car again, there was a hesitance, a stuttering to come on. Both "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights were still on.

The next day, the car wouldn't come on at all. It sounded as the battery was dead. I couldn't even jump start the car. So, I got a new battery from Costco ($59) and put it in. It took 15-20 seconds of cranking to get the car started. Once it was started, the engine sounded fine and the RPM normal. The "Check Engine" light was off. However, the "Trac Off" was still on. I cleaned the gas tank cap one more time.

The next morning, when I turned the car on, there was no problems. It came on instantly as it used to be, didn't have any warning lights, and drove smoothly.
