Question about 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

Check engine light on

We checked all fluids, and filters and it won't go off. How do I get the code for this car. I know it is different from my ford and I can't figure it out. How many times do you turn the car on and off any help would be appreciated.

Tried getting ford f150 4.2 2003 inspected. Replaced air filter and fuel filter already. Check engine lit was on before replacing them . Now check engine light is out . But won't pass inspection.


As for your codes p1131 and 1151: Ford - Lack Of Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 1 Switches - Sensor Indicates Lean


Last week I had the very same catalyst, evap and ECG codes come up on my 1999 Mercury Mystique which is like a Ford Taurus. A friend was able to find a hole or leak in the hose connected, replaced it and it runs fine. I havent run it a full and straight 50 miles yet to clear the check engine light but that repair alone changed the entire way the car was poorly driving. Im sure that hasnt fixed all the probs but thats a good starting point.

Service engine soon light what repairs might i need?


First, check if this warning is a SERVICE SOON or a CHECK ENGINE light. First just is a reminder that you need check or change fluids, filters and periodical maintenance. Check engine light measn that some fault code is detected and some sensor is sending this signal to the coputer car, you will need scanned the computer car with OBD scanner reader tool in order to know exactly what is the fault code number stored there.

Hope this helps.

What does 'check' warning light on instrument panel mean on daewoo tacuma


no, it's not the transmission. No monitors for that. It sounds like your check engine light.
When your engine computer detects a problem with it's engine management controls, or when an emissions problem is detected, the computer will turn your check engine light and store a code or codes describing the problem.
Autozone will scan your codes for free. Then you'll know if the light means a major problem (fix right away) or a minor problem that needs attention. When it's fixed, the light will stay off.
You won't know what that light means until you get the codes read. Good luck.

When I start my car the "check engine light" stays on. Its running fine and all the fluid levels are fine.


Some fault code is stored in the PCM (computer), generally could be some emissions code, but to know excalty what faulto code is, you need scanned the PCM. Some Autozone or Autoshop with scanner reader sometimes make this job for free.

Hope helps

2003 ford expedition... shaking when driving and during stop. check engine soon light keeps flashing. recently had spark plugs changed.


will try to help.the shaking during braking may be a warped brake rotor,shaking while driving is in the wheel alignment. you have several issues to deal with.as far as the engine light flashing,check all your fluid levels in the engine. oil,low coolant, brake fluid,transmission fluid. top off fluids as needed. you can reset that engine light by disconnecting the positive cable from the battery for 10mins.this will reset the cars computer. but if you have a sensor or other issues,that light will come back on.the only way to know for sure is to have it code read a garage or dealership will be able to plug it in to get the codes for you.hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

Engine light has been for a week and a half on my 06 caravan......air filter is clean?.....any suggestions


You need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes. Once you know what the codes are you can narrow down the possibilities. It has nothing to do with filters or fluid levels. The computer has detected a problem with a sensor, computer controlled device or a computer monitored system. there are literally hundreds of codes and many more possibilities as to what the problem to be.

Once you know the code(s) post back and I'll be happy to help you out if I can.

Ford f150 with 80000 mile running real rough and check engine light is not on


first start with the basics, chek your fluid levels(oil/coolant), make sure they are full, if you have the means to check the fuel pressure then check it, if you havent changed your fuel filter in a while then change it, dont forget to chek your air filter, also do you know for sure that your check engine light is not on, when you stick the key in the igntion and turn the key to the first spot, before you start your engine, your dash lights should all come on and do what called a bulb check, make sure your check engie light is coming on, if it does then i would still connect a reader to your engine and see if there are any fault codes, autozone will do this for free.

Won't shift from 1st.to 2nd. when i start from a complete stop.


No engine problems? Then the transmission filter is clogged, most likely its never been changed and the fluid has lost its lubricity. Different transmissions show different symptoms. If you take it to a shop it will get expensive. They'll probably suggest ether changing the transmission control module (TCM) or transmission itself. Just give it a tune-up. Before anything check the transmission fluid level. Make sure its not low, if it is let me know to help you find the leak. If you have a leak you'll have to fix that first. No matter what you still have to give it a tune-up.
