I HAVE A 97 PLYMOUTH NEON,WHAT IS THE DRIVE CYCLE?


A drive cycle is a test that the on board computer performs while you drive the car to prove out all the systems on the car that control tailpipe emissions, if it finds a problem it will trigger a check engine light and and the drive cycle will not complete. The correct name of this is the "OBD2 ELECTRONIC ENGINE CONTROL DRIVE CYCLE TEST". "OBD2" is short for On Board Diagnostics generation 2. The test is just driving the car at various speeds, stop and go traffic and idle time, make sure you have at least 5 gallons of gas in the tank as well. Many folks disconnect the battery to clear a Check Engine light when a smog is due, this resets the computer (known as the PCM) and then you must complete a OBD2 drive cycle, which of course will turn the Check Engine light back on.

I have a 1999 Dodge Stratus and when the car comes to a complete stop after its been warmed up, the oil light comes on. This goes away as soon as I step on the gas. I've checked the oil and there is a...


The oil pump may be going out - the light indicates the pressure is below the proper level and when you step on the gas it spins faster/raises the pressure back up to an acceptable level.

This is something to get checked RIGHT AWAY, as these cars have a history of engine failure....possibly due to low oil pressure.

Check this LINK for more info.

The emissions system may be related, but get the oil pressure issue fixed 1st.

Have the fuel pressure checked- this would determine if your fuel pump is working properly. Its really easy if you have a gauge. you might be able to rent one at a part store. or it could need a new fuel filter
