Question about 2006 Mazda 3

1 Answer

My check engine light is came on this morning on my way to class. I checked all fluids and guages and everything seems fine. I also checked my gas cap to make sure it was tight. The car is driving just like I bought it. It hasn't made any noises and the transmission does not seem to be slipping. What else could cause this CHECK ENGINE light problem?

There are lots of things that will set the light, and not necessarily a safety issue or noticable to the driver. Have the car scanned for trouble codes and send them to us. Many parts stores offer free scans (autozone, advance, etc.)

I just bought this car yesterday & after i put regular unleaded gas in the check engine light came on...I checked the engine and everything is good the fluids are fine...I cranked it this morning light...

Tighten up the gas cap.Since it came on right after you put gas in your car this is most likely what it is.After a number of cycles of the key the light should go out on its own.(Don't remember the number of times you have to cycle the key)

Might be speed sensor or fuse. very strange problem, but it is probably diagnostic hint that engineered to let you know there is a particular trbl in electrical sys,.. check a manual or dealer.

92 toyota camry automatic le tac went crazy and sudden loss pwr

check you ignition components to see if they are worn or faulty, this is usually the cheapest part that can cause this problem since your tach runs off the ignition.check fuel filter before fuel pump as this could be clogged and also not as expensive as a pump or oxy sensor. a faulty oxy sensor will set a code.

Engine turns over fine , car will not start.

well the first part of your question i was all ready to tell you to put a new fuel pump in, now not so sure, there is a relay for fuel pump, can you hear pump cycle and relay click? relay under hood you will have to listen close they don't run long maybe a couple secounds, if you don't relay bad. if you do pump could be bad, do fuel pressure test pump could be weak. don't think sunroof and turn signals are related, but stranger things have happend.
