Sounds like a O2 sensor is triggering a code. If the sensor got wet it could cause a accidental trouble code to come on. The first thing you should do is to unplug the battery, which should turn the Check Engine light off, if it comes back on then have a mechanic diagnose the problem and replace the faulty part. If it stays off, then be glad you didn't fix a problem that didn't exist.

Service engine soon wont go away!!!!!!!!!


Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

My car keep stopping itook it to a mechanic shop to be put on the machine it read the throttle position sensor is killing the mechanic say the car donot have a throttle position do i have to bring the car...


No, actually I would find a different Mechanic. 2000 and newer the TPS, Throttle Position Sensor, is pretty much standard to control idle RPM. Even in Fuel injection, it is just located on an Air control valve instead of a Carburetor.

2005 Chevy Impala LS. Will a bad upper intake cause an engine light to come on. I've been told I need a new Upper intake but currently have no engine light on.


the check engine light comes on when there is an issue with a sensor/sending unit/system/or something the pcm controls. The check engine light does not come on when there is a mechanical issue such as a bad lower intake gasket.

There are times when a mechanical problem can cause a sensor to read incorrectly and cause the check engine light to come on.

Auto start on my 2007 chevy impla stop working


Since the service engine light only comes on when there's a problem with the fuel, ignition or emission control system the car will automatically disable the car remote because it thinks there might be a problem with the emissions of the vehicle. I suspect it's to prevent further pollution if the car is in fact having a emission problems. In my case(s), the emssion sensor gets dirty and causes the sevice engine light to come on. Bring it to the shop and put the scope on it to make sure there's nothing wrong and reset the error msg. Next time, run it through a car wash, shut the vehicle off and start it again. The service engine light usually disappears for me (thus cleaning the sensor). If your engine light is not on check your fuses. <!-- from fixya rte -->

Emissions warning light stays illuminated while driving vehicle is a holden vectra 2001 and not oldsmobile as below. could not find a listing for holden.


The warning light has two states. A blinking light indicates a critical problem with gaseous emissions from the engine that is likely to cause permenant damage to the engine, exhaust sytem or catalytic converter. A blinking light must be remedied immediately, and the car should not be driven in this state, at the risk of causing serious and permenant damage to the engine, exhaust and/or catalytic converter. Repairing or replacing these parts can be extremely expensive. A reputable garage or a Vauxall/Opel garage should be able to diagnose and repair the problem.

A solid (unblinking) light indicates a non-critical fault in the emmisions exhaust system. Many faults are covered by this light including failures in emssions sensors, temperature sensors and a variety of other parts. This usually results in a higher than average amount of environmentally harmful pollutants being expelled from the car, loss of power and/or gradual damage to the engine, exhaust and catalytic converter. While the car can still be driven with a non-critical emmisions problem, it is highly recommended that the fault is diagnosed and repaired at a reputable garage or Vauxhall/Opel garage.
