Generally the light will quit in a weeks time
if not take it in to have the codes cleared to get the light off

That's probably why car don't come with fuel cap, seller didn't want you to see check engine light. First, stop by any parts store and have a fault scan done. (OBII scan) then have them reset your light. If it comes back on your vapor canister or vent line from fuel tank is blocked. Vent line can be blown clean with compressed air.

It sounds like a sensor is intermittantly loosing the data stream. Since the engine light came on, I would go to a reputable shop and have them check for codes. Many auto parts stores will do this as well and sometimes for free. Can't beet free. If I were to guess I would say something like the camshaft postion sensor is going bad, Or the crankshaft postion sensor, Or something like that. The code will tell which one it is.

Good luck, and if you have any further questions please....ask!

as silly as this sounds, check your gas cap and make sure its tight. its a good idea to get someone to scan it to verify fault(check engine light). it will give you piece of mind as well. happy holidays

Last week, when I started my '89 Dodge Dakota, I saw that the "check engine" light was on. I put the transmission shift in "drive" and notice that the engine ran "rough" and I drove away. When I stopped at...


unless there are some other underlying issues, they may be there still unless you clear the codes and turn off the check engine light..or else in the distributor itself you will see two long metal pieces at the top..they should be screwed to the distributor housing. there should be two individual pieces..those are your coils..one is your "run pickup coil" and the other is your "start pick up coil" if your run pick up coil is bad then a tune up won't accomplish much..you will need to take that to your mechanic to have it diagnosed properly..if faulty, replace. if not, then perhaps its a fuel issue or bad alternator.

Can't get gas cap back on 1999 e320


Check the metal tabs on the gas cap they should be aligned with the little groves if there not the cap won't go on correctly or close all the way and you will get the engine light coming on. Happen to me and I used a pair of needle nose pliers to move the tabs back into place (wasnt easy) and then it worked fine...Hope this helps you.

P.S my cap got like that after I fueled the car and was in a hurry now I make sure everything lines up before I tighten it.

Just bought a 2006 chevy trailblazer. the engine light kees coming on. checked and replaced 2nd cylander coil. drove 150 miles engine light came ack on


I suppose the engine code said that cylinder was not firing or faulty? I would immediately get a compression check done on the engine. It is relatively painless. My burnt valves (compression 10psi vs 150psi) could not be diagnosed any other way. Does this help?
