The check engine light/service engine soon (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.

You need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes. Once you know what the codes are you can narrow down the possibilities. It has nothing to do with filters or fluid levels. The computer has detected a problem with a sensor, computer controlled device or a computer monitored system. there are literally hundreds of codes and many more possibilities as to what the problem to be.

Once you know the code(s) post back and I'll be happy to help you out if I can.

Can not find the cabin filter on my 1994 Dodge Caravan--it is not under the glove compartment? van smells bad when air conditioner/heater is on- you suggested to clean the cabin filter but no one seems to...


I've had Caravans for many years and never had that problem however, if there is a cabin filter in the vehicle it is inside the air exchange box and you will have to open it to find the filter. Most likely in the top.

My 1996 Dodge Caravan is running smooth on drive but when I stopped and put it in reverse, it hesitates and I felt like it will stall.


I had a 1995 Plymonth Vorager. (3.0 L V6) These vans came with several engine sizes and types. On my vehicle I had a stalling problem in both drive and reverse. I found that the small engine idle passageway bypassing the air inlet valve to the main engine air manfold was clogged with dirt and sludge buildup from the fuel fumes when the engine is shut off. In this condition, it would not allow enough air to pass when the engine is in idle. At idle, the main valve is closed. Under load, such as being in gear and the vehicle stopped, the engine would die if it does not get enough air. I used carburator cleaner to soak and clean out the passageway. The air filter might also be dirty and need to be replaced. If you are not familure with this maintenace, I would suggest taking it to a trusted garage to replace the air filter and have them clean out the enigne air valve and inlet area. Hopefully it will be that simple. If you still have issues after this, you may have to have the transmission looked at.

Hope this helps.

06' Ford Explorer engine light wont go off after repair


Yes, that sounds correct to be calibrated.and probably is what is causing your problem. Mass air flow sensors hardly ever go bad. They get dirty and set a code. Garages will try to sell you one when you can clean it with a throttle body cleaner. If you have your old one, clean it and put it back on, try it to see if it works better.
