    The check engine light is there and has something to warn about. it could be as simple as a missed periodic maintenance check. to a dirty sensor which the computer box just keeps nagging you about. are your emissions still in the green? do you ever had have rough idling?

Hi,

The correct procedure would be to have your vehicle's computer scanned to be able to get the error code(s). This in turn will pin point the defective component. Which I sincerely doubt if available with most dealers.

Would it be possible for you to have your EGR flow valve/sensor checked/cleaned? It can be done by most knowledgeable mechanics. To give you an idea how to go about it, pls reference this link. This page might also provide you with some additional insights. Should cleaning the EGR prove to be corrective of your "CHECK ENGINE Light", an online source for replacement parts may be found here. An explanation of the function of the said component may be found here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I'm having same problem on my 2000 model rodeo 4wd 3.2L V6. Other day check engine light came on. I checked engine bay nothing abnormal, or power loss. Next day light was gone. 2 days later drivin


Where I live there is a Schuck's auto parts...and they have a hand held diagnostic tester that plugs right in to your harness. This will tell you whats is wrong.It only takes about 2 min and they don't charge you.On my car it was the mass air flow censor.If you can't find a Auto parts store that does this...take it to a shop soon. Good Luck

Check engine light on and it uses alot of petrol, mitsubishi colt 1989


Hi there:
If the Check Engine Light illuminates, stays on, and there are performance problems.
This means that a vital component of your emission control and engine management system has a serious problem. It usually involves a component or system needed for the vehicle to run at all. In most cases, drive the vehicle as little as possible. In many cases, the vehicle is not safe to drive at all -it could stop or stall out at any moment. It is best to pull over to a safe place and have the vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for a thorough inspection and repair.



I suggest visit Autozone or Autoshope with OBD scanner reader tool, sometimes they make this job for free.

WHY IS MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON


Hi Thomas:
When the Check Engine Light is flashing ON it means that the computer has detected a misfire in the engine.It is not good to drive a vehicle that has a flashing check engine light; one or more sensor in your vehicle is advise about an code fault. I suggest scanning for know what code is in there and solve it.

In some vehicles, a red check-engine light means the car needs absolute immediate attention while a yellow check-engine light means you need to make an appointment soon. The light is used to indicate PCM (Powertrain Control Module) problems that are associated with your vehicle's emissions system.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

About once a week my 2004 Isuzu Rodeo will totally cut off in the middle of driving and the power steering goes out and the brake, check engine, air bag, and oil lights come on. I will turn the car off and...


i suggest you get the code out of the vehicles diagnostic system it could shed some light on why vehicle cuts out.
does vehicle start straight away?
things like a relay, crank sensor, wiring loom or connector problem or more expensive things like engine ECU could be at fault.
i have seen all these but the most common for V6 engines is the engine harness wiring loom breaking and bad earth crimp on LH head to guard area.
