The service engine soon light comes on for many could be as simple as CO2 sensor, or it may just be one of the lights that just stays on, ask your local GM garagre to reset the code for you..maybe cost you a couple bucks.

Can anyone tell me what this is on my suburban?

That is the ODB11 Code Reader Port. When your engine malfunction light comes on, you attach a code reader to that socket and the machine give a P Code. That code tells the problem as stated from the ECM (engine control module.

What could the problem be with a 1988 Chevrolet Camaro 2.6 V6 motor?

Hi Evie;
I would check the driver's side dash to see if the "check engine" light came on; if so rent an OBD-I reader (specific to GM cars) from your local auto parts store.
Once you retrieve the trouble code, go to the following website to interpret the code fault:
2008 Acura MDX Sensor Location

The title of the above link is misleading; it will bring you to the "GM OBD1 Codes Retrieval For Pre 1996 GM Vehicles" page. It is a single page reading, dedicated to the GM OBD-I DTCs; please read it first before attempting to pull the codes.

From there, you'll be able to get a general idea of where or what to look at, in the diagnostic/troubleshoot process, instead of the guess and try method.

For future reference, you should detail more information as to what led up to the problem; or what is actually happening; and what repairs were attempted to correct the'll certainly lower, if not take the guess factor out of the troubleshooting process.

If you need more help, there are plenty of assistants to help. :)

ABS light just came on, is it an easy fix. My abs warning light comes on often. It usually stays on until I restart the car, then it might stay off for days but will always relight. Often, I turn the...

The code scanner that you need is called ODBII code reader with ABS, and it works in the same way as the one that you connect to the car computer module (ECU) to read codes when the check engine light comes on, but the cheap ones that you can buy from $50 do not have the ABS brake scan function.

If the problem is the ABS, then it is often a wiring to abs problem, or a defective ABS control module, a scan reading is necessary to know what the problem is.

Below few examples of Code reader with ABS:

My 1991 Camaro

The backfire is only a symptom and is caused by unburned fuel entering the exhaust system while the engine is misfiring.
When it gets its 'groove' back, the returning spark ignites that fog that has made it into the exhaust system.

You do need to find the source since that backfiring is raising Cain with the catalytic convertor and possibly the muffler too.

Once it 'catches' again, does it seem to accelerate normally?
If not, it could be only a fuel filter that needs replacing.

If you don't have a code reader, it might be a good time to buy one.

The cost is very reasonable at $20 +S&H:

You can pay double if you really want to though-
