You can do a self test to find out which trouble code is present. insert key in ignition. turn the key;
off-on, off-on, off-on. ( "on" is when the dash lights come on and "off" is one click back) The codes with either display on the digital odometer or flash out on the check engine light- the codes will be in pairs of numbers with 5-5 being the end of the test. report back with your findings so that we may help you solve the problem

95 sl500 check engine light reset and comes back on after it sits over night. any idea?


What code is it throwing ? Some codes are what are called two trip codes ! You clear the codes an start an drive the vehicle ,no check engine light . Park the vehicle over night an bam next time you start an drive the vehicle the check engine light comes back on .

??There are two types of DTC's, 1 trip DTC's and 2

trip DTC's

??A 1 trip DTC is for a condition that requires

immediate attention such as a catalyst damaging

misfire.

??A 2 Trip DTC is one that a condition must be found

during 2 consecutive trips such as an EGR fault.

??Most Monitors do not set a DTC and light the MIL

when a vehicle fails a test for the first time during a

DRIVE CYCLE. If a test is failed on a second

consecutive DRIVE CYCLE the MIL will light and a

DTC is stored in the vehicles powertrain control
module (PCM).

Light


This is the "Low Oil Pressure Warning" light. It is RED for a reason! When this light (or any RED warning light for that matter) comes on, pull over and shut the engine OFF at once. Allowing the engine to run with insufficient oil pressure can cause a catastrophic failure in mere seconds. Such a failure can cost thousands of dollars to repair.
This warning is most often the result of a very low oil level as indicated when checking on the oil dipstick. The engine oil level should be maintained as close to the "full" mark as possible - without exceeding it. Oil should never be allowed to drop below the "low" mark on the dipstick. If the oil level is shown to be between full and low, the light is probably coming on as a result of a faulty oil pump (the oil level should be checked with the vehicle parked on level ground, with the engine OFF). A faulty oil pump is unable to pump the oil with enough pressure to reach all the moving parts of the engine that require lubrication. Without proper lubrication, connected moving parts heat up, expand and seize. Moving parts are expected to move - not be prevented from moving.
If your engine shut down, it may be the result of some of the internal parts seizing. Hopefully, this is not the case. Check the oil level and top off as needed to bring the level up and attempt to start the engine and have the vehicle checked by a trusted mechanic.
Good luck!

2002 Chevy Impala wont start after letting sit after it warms up


Almost sound's like vapor lock , the fuel boils in the fuel injector rail , turns to vapor ! That was a common problem with carburetors , letting the vehicle hot soak after shutting down the vehicle an letting it sit for 10- 15 mins. The fuel would boil away ! Are the cooling fans working ? After turning off a hot engine the cooling fans can run on without the key being on , do you hear fans run ? What engine does your impala have ? 3.4 or 3.8 L . Has the check engine light come on ? The fuel pressure regulator could be leaking fuel . Pull the vacuum hose off the regulator after shut off the vehicle , is there fuel coming out of the regulator ? Dribbling out the end of the hose ? This could be bleeding the fuel from the fuel rail ! Good luck , hope i've given you something's to check that you haven't already .

the first place to start is the flashing engine lite. that means cylinders are not firing at all or improperly and driving it like that for even short period could cause heavier damage. particularly valves and cat converter(s) the computer really needs to be scanned for codes in order to proceed. did the oil lite come on before or after engine quit. after engine quit would be normal cause it stalled. its possible that it needs spark plugs and/or coils. or more

Check engine light on


If you disconnect your battery for 15 minutes it should clear a dummy light. However if it does not it you may have a bad sensor.
