When i try to start the engine a light on the dash comes on and says check engine i've checked what i can but i cant seem to find the problem and when i turn the key theres nothing at all happening...


It sounds like your starter has stopped working. I could be a bad fuse able link but this is usually a problem on older vehicles. The service engine soon light should always come on when you start the car. If you turn the key to start and you hear absolutely nothing then odds are its the starter. If you take it out yourself, you can have it tested at a local parts store before you drop the cash to buy another. I hope this helps!

I have a Peugot 206 1.4 sport the engine diagnostic light keeps coming on the engine seems fine> Can I continue to drive the car. Small garages cannot get into the Peugot computer to diagnose the...


Turn the ignition on. Whats the status of service miles? If service miles are reached zero then the diagnostic light comes up to remind you to bring your car to service station. If needed check my other posts to find out the procedure to set off the service /diagnostic light.
Check that the motor oil and oil filter are changed at regular intervals.
For 206 1.4 sports ecu can be scanned by many garages, costs around 45 quids.

There is a green tube coming off the side of my egr valve and it seems to be cut will replacing this tube solve my check engine problems


Hello Malcolm.
The vacuum line to the EGR will certainly cause your check engine light to come on.
The vacuum hoses on these cars become brittle with age, I generally replace broken lines with a quality rubber hose available at your local auto supply.
The check engine light may take a while to turn off without clearing service codes.
If the light is still on after a couple days of driving you may have other issues turning on the check engine light.
Hope your repair goes well for you.

Car seemed hesitant when started service engine soon light on


There are many things that can cause the light to come on. Generally if it is serious most 'check engine' or 'service engine' lights will blink. The simplest (and cheapest) method to diagnose the problem is to take the car to AutoZone and they will read the computer codes free of charge and tell you exactly what it is (such as the oxygen sensor got a bad reading and needs a reset, or its time for an oil change... etc.)

Engine Bogs with Service Engine Lights on


Your car needs O2 sensors and if one or any are unplugged your car will operate as you described(like ****). To get your check engine light off you need to find out what is triggering the check engine light sensor. It it most likely in need of an O2 sensor replacement. If you can tell me what kind of car you have I can give you more information.

2000 Chev Cavalier, warning lights are coming on


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine, Service Engine Soon, ABS Or TC lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. The number of codes that can turn the light on number in the hundreds. I would take it to a service center you trust and let then come up with a solution. Sometimes a problem in one system will turn light on for other systems that communicate with it, but it doesn't mean there is a problem in all of the systems.
