O K I'm going to try and explain how to do this. What you need is the codes out of the computer. Here is how you access the codes. Turn the ignition switch on then off then on then off then on again. now leave it on and count how many times the check engine light blinks. Will say the code is 35, what you will see is the light will blink three times then hesitate then blink 5 times and this is 35. you may have more then one code in the computer so watch and count them all and write them all down. Then go to Auto Zone and give them the codes and they will tell you what's wrong. do not start the motor when you are getting the codes.

My 1993 nissan sentra 1.6 wont run and check engine light wont turn on,bulb is ok


Could be any of several things. If the crank sensor is marginal and not sending pulses, the fuel pump is shut off. This is for safety. The pump is energized for a few seconds as key is turned in preparation for starting then engine must rotate normally to keep the pump on. If it stops, in a few seconds the fuel is cut off.

Hi there:
Don't confuse this steady pulsing of the Check Engine Light light (usually one or more flashes per second) with a flicker (see above). The Check Engine Light may stay on steadily or it may flash when the vehicle is accelerated. This is very serious. There is a severe failure of the emission control system that is causing the engine to misfire to the point that the catalytic converter is damaged each time the Check Engine Light flashes. It may mean that the catalytic converter is overheating to the point that it will glow red or, in extreme cases, start a fire on the underside of the vehicle. Immediately pull over to a safe place and have your vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for repair. Vehicles can be severely damaged and even destroyed by fire if this condition is ignored for too long.

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, have a nice day.

Kia Rio cutting off


im assuming that changed the oil unit you mean sending unit ? if so could be electric short in the pick tail or worse wiring harness. second there is also possoble vacum leak .third while unit was being replaced something didnt get put back or got knocked loose. created a new problem. most times as thing are going bad they dont register until it is a prolonged problem as it took 2 days for the check engine to go out that also might have been normal. you might also notice while sitting at park when you turn the wheel you will notice ia differance in the idle, if its almost stalling then its probley your idle,needs re set, or your idle controle valve is going bad ,did it get checked or cleaned when they serviced the throttle body. and also could be your mass air flow sensor going bad or need cleaned

Cuts off while driving, starts right back up in park or nuetral


SCAN YOUR CAR. HERE IS WHAT YOU DO. WITHOUT STARTING THE CAR, TURN THE KEY ON,OFF,ON,OFF,ON. WAIT SEVERAL SECONDS AND COUNT HOW MANY TIMES THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT FLASHES.IT WILL GIVE YOU A 2 DIGIT CODE, AND IT WILL NEVER BE MORE THAN 7 FLASHES IN A ROW. RE. IF YHE LIGHT FLASHES ONCE PAUSE THEN TWICE THAT CODE IS 12. A CODE OF 5 5 MEANS THE SYSTEM IS FINISHED DIAGNOSING. PLEASE GET BACK TO ME WITH YOUR CODES. GOOD LUCK.
