Hello, You need to get the van scanned. You can have that done free at Autozone, Oreillys, and Advance autoparts. The scanner should show more details about the problem. You can take the Code number and return to this site or ask the parts guy what you need to buy to fix the problem.

The parts people are knowledgeable about procedures for repair and some deal with Mechanics' shops on a daily basis. They would know of a local repair place if you want someone else to fix your van.

I hope you found my solution to be very helpful. Your van problems could be from who worked on it, or from a part getting wet while sitting too long.

Recurring emission warning light


Hi there, did they run an emissions check? If so what was the outcome?

It could be your catalytic converter has broken down inside and/or blown a hole through it. Does the exhaust note seem louder and brash?

It is not dangerous for driving, but it can be annoying having that light blink at you. Disconnect the negative battery lead for 20 minutes. This should reset the ECU and if the light pops back up then there could be a fault with the CAT sensor or the above fault with the CAT.

I don't think it is a reocurring problem, moreso the ECU is thinking that the emissions are out of sync. Does the car consume gas quickly? Does the car feel sluggish?

Reply back and I hope this might help a little (vote if you think it's helpful)

Check engine light came on and now blinks on. Very rough running, smelly exhausts. Still starts and runs just very rough. 2001 dodge intrepid. I have not check obd codes yet.


the emission code are the first you should check it is more than likely a vacum leak but if you let it go too long it will damage the catalytic converter and 02 sensors

O.D light blinks, won't shift, runs rough at low rpms 2003 F-150


This is likely your electronic speed sensor. On my 2003 F150 it would rev quite high before finally shifting into 2nd. and my O.D light would blink also. The speed sensor is located under the vehicle about halfway back on the frame on the passenger side. The part costs about $70 and is a fairly easy repair.
