You take it to an auto part store and ask them to scan the computer for you and they will do it for free and give you the code that has been stored in the Memory then you can bring it here and we'll see what is it. Good luck

SOURCE: 2002 kia rio rxv check engine light came on again..

the check engine light is not caused by any wrong fluid level or dirty air filter or anything else like that, it is caused by well over 100 faults that can occur in the computer controlled electronic engine and emission controls, u will need to go to a Kragen or Autozone parts store and get a free OBD 2 fault code test to get the code that set your light.

SOURCE: 2003 VW Jetta TDI Check Engine Light Issue

Try disconnecting the battery (unhook on of the terminals) wait for like 15 mins, hook the terminal once again and start the car. I also own a 2003 Jetta and once my engine light would come on after 2 mins of driving. Disconnecting the battery is like resetting the computer and hopefully the sensor.

2006 Maserati Quattroporte had a oil change done a week ago oil light came on checked dipstick no oil on dipstick does that mean damage to the engine


The oil light will come on if there is no oil or very little oil in the engine. You say you had the oil changed a week ago. Check the oil plug in the engine pan and see if it is very loose or missing.and leaking oil Also check the oil filter to see if it is loose and leaking oil. If you changed the oil using a company then you could have a complaint with them if something is loose or missing. If you changed it yourself you may have to say its a learning experience. Hope you never drove very far with no oil your engine just might be ok.

I can smell burning oil smell inside my car sometimes when i turn the heat on.and the engine light also came on couple of days after. i jus changed the oil and filters 3 weeks ago. can someone please


depending on the type of car, you might have oil leaking directly onto the exhaust system, which is dangerous as it could possibly ignite. I would take it back to the oil change place and have them double check the oil filter to make sure the seal isn't leaking. AutoZone or Advance Auto can hook a mini scan tool to the car and tell you why the light is on.

Changed the oil on my 2006 accent one week ago. Have made a few 50 mile trips since the change with no problems and no leakage. Today on the highway the oil and engine lights came on. Loud valve-type...


Have the vehicle properly diagnosed... it could very well be the oil pump - don't risk burning up the engine by oil starvation... get someone to check the oil pressure.

My car isn't leaking oil but I changed the oil about 2 weeks ago and went to check it and it was bone dry; also having a problem with the right head light low beam, changed the bulb also the harness wire....


If the car is smoking through the muffler then its burning the oil if not, check for a loose engine filter or leaky oil pressure sensor that leaks only when the car is running.

Check engin light


The check engine light may or may not have anything to do with your oil change. Take your vehicle back to the shop that performed the oil change and have them check the code. Maybe something was disconnected during the oil change, but most likely the cause is unrelated.

Oil light flashing, last oil change 7 wks ago


I belive they didn't reset the oil light timer. I belive the sequence is 1. key on (not acc with engine off)
2. step on the brake pedal 5 times within 10 seconds. 3. key off. 4. start car. 5. check if the light went out. you may have to try it a few times to get it.

Engine light is 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 or Service Engine Soon lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. Not fluid related, but could be a small problem that's easy to fix now. Even a loose gas cap can turn the light on. Have a code scan, that's the starting point.
