The check engine light (yellow light) comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system u will seldom feel the car engine run any different, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Where is diagnostic connector locationon 1994 toyota base pickup


The check engine light is used to blink out the trouble codes. The diagnostic connector is usually under the hood on driver's side, back near the firewall. Sometimes under the driver's dash. Use a jumper wire and connect terminals TE1 and T1. Then turn key to on, not start, and the check engine light will blink out the trouble codes. If no codes are present, the check engine light will stay on constantly. Remove jumper wire when diagnostics completed. To clear codes after repairs, disconnect the negative battery terminal for one minute, and then reconnect.

2002 Mitsubishi Galant will not start, sometimes. This just started when I got home today. Car sat for about 1 hour then wouldnt start. Engine was turning over but would not start. Waited about an hour...


Check your fluids, oil and coolant. May need to check radiator fan operation. And check for trouble codes. If the cel light came on, it should set a code that can point to the problem.

My abs light and check engine light comes on some times when i start it, and stays on till i turn it off, but sometimes they dont dont come on at all?


You should have the computer scanned for trouble codes. When the check engine light or ABS warning light is on the computer should record trouble codes to direct the mechanic as to what to check.

I have a 2006 Cadillac STS 3.6 V6. When I purchased it from the dealer on 8/8/11, there was virtually no oil in the engine. I put in 3 quarts of Mobile 1 synthetic and I only fill up with premium unleaded...


Probably a crankshaft position sensor problem. Is the check engine light on, and if not, does it EVER come on? People sometimes do remove trouble lights to sell troubled vehicles!

1996 dodge avenger when cold, the transmission go in limp mode


Is the vehicle's Check Engine Light on? It should briefly light up when you turn the key on (before you start the engine) to show that the light is working correctly. Based on what I've read I believe you should have one or more trouble codes. A place like AutoZone will read the trouble codes for you for free, and you can look them up here - http://www.engine-light-help.com/generic-check-engine-light-codes.html

My 1990 Camry jerks and sometimes stalls


The 1st thing to do is have a trouble code retrieval test run to see what is making the check engine light come, this is the source of the problem.
