I just had this problem with my 2005 PT Cruiser. I took the car to my local repair shop (Chrysler has abandoned this area in Florida) and had it connected to a diagnostic computer. Guess what? Loose gas cap. Looking at the cap you can see the gasket is getting funny. Repair shop recommended buying a new gas cap.

My honda ballade 160i tempreture gauge always go up bt the engine heat,water is normal.the fan smetimes does nt stop.even whn engine is off.


A fan running after switching the engine off is normal for some cars as this prevents overheating and the fan should cut off after a while. Only if it is still running long after switching the engine off is there any cause for concern.

When I push the gas on my car it won't go past


The car runs fine after it warms up? Is it running with the check engine light off? But it does come on with the key before the engine is started? If the coolant temperture senser is bad ( or disconnected someway) the check engine light will be on but the car might run OK at normal operating tempertures. Have the car checked for codes. It's OBDI so you might have to find a service provider that can ceck the codes on this pre OBDII car. If it turly runs good at normal operating tempertures and the transmission is'nt low on fluild then the coolant senser does'nt always turn the check engine light on if it's bad and still reading something but wrong. Truly running good and the coolant is full ( all the way). chage the senser and see what happens as thier cheap and easy to change with commn hand tools.654437604.jpg

Hi my kia sedona CHECK ENGINE light comes on now then. what could be wrong, can it affect performance.


Ususally when they come on and go out peroidically it is fuel related. Low octane fuel will give a bad oxygen sensor reading triggering the light for short periods. (Modern engines are recommended to use mid to high octane -grade fuel) Also a bad gas cap seal or not tightening it properly after fueling can cause that. (Manufacterers recommend replacing the gas cap every 2-3 years) Whatever it is , it is affecting your engine performance to some degree or the light would'nt come on. See if you can get a code out of the computer, that will give you a better indication of a potential problem.

Keep getting po102 if using a scanner to read codes but the engine light is not lit. does periodically have a stumble on acceleration. checked hoses, cleaned throttle body , replaced mass air sensor. runs...


if the problem for p0102 was repaired & the ck engine lamp is off then i would'nt be
concerned. the computor will erase code from its memory after it does'nt see the problem
any more.it will store in history codes for awhile

2001 Mitsubishi Montero XLS with 110K...check engine soon light came on while sitting idle ...IS THIS A CONCERN? CAR RUNS AS NORMAL


the computer is sensing something is wrong. If running normal, dont worry about it. Check your gas cap, cross threading it is a common "check engine".These lights are also called dummy lights. They are very sensetive.

I want to know what the check engine light looks


If you turn the key to the on position without starting the engine, one of the lights says check engine. that's the light you're looking for!!! if it dosen't come on there is something wrong with the light!
