Hi:
The check engine light is basically telling you that your car's computer detected a fault, and usually those faults have a code that corresponds to a system or component. When your mechanic checked out your car, and cleared the code, did he tell you what the code was? You should have your car scanned again, and find out the exact code. If it was the same as the one your mechanic cleared, your car possibly has an intermittent problem, and he needs to dig deeper!

Why is battery draining ford 2002 Taurus SES


Remove negative cable from battery, connect a test light to negative terminal, opposite end off light to negative battery post. ( let sit for 3 to 5 minutes). Then start pulling fuses, when the light goes out that's your bad circuit. God-Bless! Its worth a try.

Why won't my car pass emissions test even if the check engine light isn't on??


the computer meters fuel based on a signal from the coolant temperature sensor. The check engine light sometimes does not come on when the sensor fails.If the sensor is causing your problem you will have a strong odor of gasoline when the car starts,It will be slow to start the first time, turn it off and it will start right up. lol

It may go out on its own, the next time the computer does a routine system check. If two or three runs around town over the next few days doesn't clear it, only a dealer or a good mechanic with the proper scanner can turn it off.

If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Check everything with engine cranking. If your missing all three, check your crank sensor. Can you check applicable trouble codes?

If your saying the starter motor won't even crank the engine, that is a different issue?

Check engine light on after oil change three days ago


Your "check engine" light is an emission light. Oil is fine. You have to find the code to check whats wrong. Usually an engine light is just a tiny problem, but in other cases it could be anything from a sensor, to a bad cat converter. With a check engine light on a vehicle will not pass smog tests. You can turn it off by unhooking your pos side to the battery for about 3 min. Then you will have to drive it 30 miles non stop for the computer to put the code back in and the light will come back on

Land rover 2003 check engine light on. Drive cycle needed


Clear the codes per factory specs, you must drive the car for at least a week normal driving in order for the computer to reset itself to have all sensors in ready mode to be scanned for emissions testing or it will fail emissions due to the computer sensors showing NOT READY MODE, which the mechanic may not tell you about in order to sell you services you don't need.

Check engine light comes on, gauges light comes on


What sensors did you replace? It sounds like a problem that could be caused by something in the evaporative emission system, like a faulty purge solenoid or evap cannister problem. Does the tank take fuel slowly when filling up? You could also have a faulty gas cap. That is the first thing I would look at. It is an integral part of the evap system. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Engine light comes on 2003 Jeep grand cherokee laredo


Check the Fuel Pump Relay, it may be malfunctioning and need replaced. Also, in some vechicles, if the batter is disconnected and reconnected, the service engine light will come on from time to time, going off and on simultaneously. Have a diagnostics done to see if any codes show up. If no codes appear, then have them all cleared and drive for another 200 miles. Sometimes the computer will need to be cleared a couple times before the light will stay off. Make sure that all fuses and relays are good, and securey in place. Check all factory installed lights to make sure they are good, and securly in place as well.
