    I've a Nissan 2003 Sentra and SES lights went on from today morning. I took it to AutoZone and they said it's becasue of the Auto-Freeze oil low. I had to purchase cooler and even after max content level in the tank the light glows up. If you know of any solution, please let me know.

    Thanks. Sankar.

    I have the same issue as well. Check engine light came on awhile ago, the gas stopped wanting to pump correctly and just last week the car stopped working. Sent it to the shop they said it was the fuel pump, so he changed the pump and guess what it still isn't starting

erase code again , then disconnect battery for a few minutes, reconnect, see if code comes back. hopefully this resets computer. you don\'t have a reset button on steering wheel do you ? replace your fuel filter, if you haven\'t lately. maybe that will help.

Hello: Without being there when the smoke test was performed no one can say what the results of the smoke test were. I would go back to the dealer and speak to the service director/service manager and request a new gas cap.

If they forgot to tighten the hose clamps on the hose from the tank to the filler cap it could be setting it off. If they are all tight it was probably just the gas cap. The gas cap is usually ALWAYS the culprit. Let me know if this helps

Service engine soon light stays on could it be a sensor?

Could as simple as a faulty or loose gas cap. Have the car scanned at Auto Zone for the DTC codes that would indicate the issue that needs to be addressed. Auto Zone scan free of charge too, so you can save money and they will give you the recommendation to address the issues.

Post back the DTC codes and be glad to help. Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

Serv. Eng Light mystery

The evaporative emission system is designed to prevent fuel vapors from being released into the atmosphere. The vapors are absorbed and stored by a fuel vapor (evap) charcoal cannister until certain engine conditions are met, then the vapors are purged and burned in the combustion process. I would lean toward a faulty purge solenoid based on the condition that you describe. I would also look at a faulty gas cap. The gas cap is an integral part of the evap system and will cause these kind of problems if faulty and not venting properly. Hope this helps and that you find a resolution to your problem.
