The method described by the other expert only gives the error code, long blinks = 10 short ones = 1
to actuall fix this and clear the error code will require the use of a scanner tool, eighter OBD1 or OBD2 depending on the vehicle. Its a bit expensive to actually buy one, then having to fix the error it dsplays then resetting it without causing further damage.
In my personal opinion Take this to a servcie center ,, you'll thank your self for it later.

    Chances are your engine timing belt needs changings, or the fuel injection system may require servicing

Engine Control Unit Indicator Lamp

If the engine control unit indicator lamp remains on or lights up again while the vehicle is moving, the fuel tank was run empty or a fault has developed in the engine control unit. The engine's power output may be reduced. Refuel and bleed the fuel system or have the cause traced and rectified by an authorized Sprinter Dealer. Bleeding The Diesel Fuel System, The diesel fuel system must be bled before starting the engine.
Turn the key in the ignition lock position 2 for at least 30 seconds. Return the key to position 0.
Start the engine three to four times. The engine control unit indicator lamp must go out.

Hope that helps........

1. Put the key in the ignition.

2. Turn key all the way forward - not to the point where the car starts, just to the point where all the lights come on. Do it in this sequence: ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON..

3. Keep a close eye on your odometer. You will see a series of codes display, followed by the word "donE"...

4. These codes will tell you why the "Check Engine Light" is coming on.

5. If you see "P0442" followed by "P0456". These codes mean respectively: EVAP sensor detection... SMALL LEAK. IF IT IS THESE SET OF CODES, fear not - nothing is wrong with your car. Simply tighten your gas cap, then...

6. Pop the hood, disconnect the NEGATIVE battery terminal - DO NOT DISCONNECT THE POSITIVE TERMINAL - FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. You will run the risk of shorting out the electrical system.

7. Wait a couple of minutes, then reconnect.

8. Start the car up and TADA! CEL is gone!

Hope this helps...

This sounds like it could be a paet called the canaster vent purge solionid. It could give you codes P0442 AND P0445 large and small leaks and also effect the EGR opperation P0403. Its located on the top of the intake manifold it opens and closes when comanded to to let fuel vaper in to the engine to be burned it the combustion chamber. If this valve were stuck in the open pisition this could cause all of these problems at the same time. No way to tell for sure with out looking at but this is well worth checking it vary well may be the olny problem you have

The engine malfunciton light is on that looks like a motor. Went to autozone for free test code P0420. said could be oxygen sensor, ignition system or couple other things. put in some stp for now. dont...


po420 is catalylic converter system efficiency below threshold, which means converter is not burning or cleaning exhaust good, i ve found that 90% of the time its bad o2 sensors they give off a false reading to computer, replace the frt and rear o2 sensors and reset engine light that should take care of problem, if cat con verter happens to be no good its no loss because new o2s should be replaced with new converter, but i think o2s will solve youe problem. hope this helps.goodluck.

1996 geo tracker think I need a new transmission???


cost ? your kidding?

the CEL lamp glows (check engine lamp)
says Fault in the engine controls or tranny.
the OD lamp only flashes to warn of tranny malfunciton.

any mechanic can pull the codes and so can Auto zone for free.

get the codes and post them
or go to the mechanic and ask for diagnosis and just an estimate.

it all depend on the codes and how tranny shifts.
you could , on the other and get a full power flush of the tranny with a new filter and pray.

you skipped that step at 100k miles right?

If your engine light came on, the engine module could have stored a code.
You need to have a scanner to check what code it is and that will point you toward the solution.
Possible causes could be (crank sensor, tps sensor or oxygen sensor).
Don't go replacing parts until you scan the vehicle for codes first.
