This car is actuelly equiped with 2, and it depends on what kind of connection you have. The OBD2 connector is located on the passenger side to the left of the glove box. The other connector which is a round connector is located under the hood on the drivers side next to the abs module.... It will have a round cover over it.

This is an evaporative emission code, you ether left the gas cap loose or the fuel system is leaking and will not hold a vacuum.

This is the code definition:

Check engine light hook up


It is located under the hood. You will need someone that has a scanner that will read a Ford EEC-IV system

I have a 1996 caprice classic _ v8 5.7 engine.. & my check engine light is on but the car seems to run perfectly fine.. I jus brought the car & plan on changing the spark plugs & wires, but...


you need to hook up a diagnostic code retrieving tool to the aldl < assembly line diagnostic link > this is located under the instrument panel on the drivers side, plug the tester into the link, then turn on the ignition key, but do not start the vehicle, the tester will cycle through the computer , and will retrieve any trouble codes that the computer has picked up, once you have recieved the trouble code or codes, write them down, and then turn off the ignition key, and unplug the tester, then compare the codes to the code booklet, and then it will tell you what the code stands for, and then you can check those areas to see what the problem is, also if you do not have a tester, a auto part store will check this for free, hope that this information has helped you.

My check engine light came on then after that the car doesn't accelerate rapid enough...


It could be a sensor. Most likely and commonly unless your fuel filter is plugged. Computer Check/Service engine lights are connected to the computer so any time anything electrical or electronical goes faulty, your check/service engine light will come one. You should have the car's computer hooked up to a code reader or diagnostic scanner which many part stores will test for free. This tester can tell you what's wrong with the car as well as shut off the service engine light.

Check engine light is on.


Hi, And yes it is. When the check engine light comes on, normally it indicates a problem in the emissions system of you're auto. Its a good idea to check fluid level to make sure they are where they are supposed to be if it does come on. What you can do though is drop by your local Auto-Zone parts store and for no charge they will hook up there OBD-2 meter to you're computer which is located just left of your steering wheel, below your dash. They just plug it in. It will read out a code that tells you what is going on. They can then erase it and it may never come on again.This is you're best bet. My light is on now due to an emissions problem, and will go off by itself for months before coming on again. I can't find anything wrong with it. Try this and keep me posted.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Can't get the check engine light to go out on our 2005 Trailblazer. Recently replaced the spark plugs, air filter and previous to this a recent oil change as well.


There could be a hundred causes for a check engine light. First step is to hook up a computer scan tool and see what codes the computer has. The next step depends on the codes.

Just bought a used Sunfire. Check engine light


I have never had to replace an ALDL plug in 28 years. This includes 4 years working for a GM dealership.

Check your manual for a fuse location for the diagnostic link. Also try the generic vehicle data stream on the scanner. Is this a good scanner like a snap-on or genesis? If it a cheap one, suspect that.

Try going to an Advance or Auto=zone store and have them try to scan it.

Hope this helps

EGR System


the egr valve is located facing the driver side so if you are standing on the driver side and looking in at the engine then you would be looking towards it.Now locate the black plastic cover that says 5.4 or 4.6 on top of the engine,and its just below that cover---its round and black with a hose hooking to the center of it.and it has a big metal hose hooked to the side of it that hooks to the exhaust..sometimes the holes inside the intake gets plugged with carbon but the egr valve is still good and will have a code.if its over 100,000 then its probably carbon/oil build-up in the intake.
