When the engine ran out of gas it most likely misfired as the last of gas was used up, this will cause a check engine light to be set by the system called the Misfire Monitor. Clear the code, it should'nt come back.

Ran out of gas recently. when refueled and started again,check engine symbol stayed on? well mainted and has always ran great since new.


Sometimes the check engine light will come on if the fuel cap is not on tight enough. Check the fuel cap for an intact seal and install at correct tightness.

A major auto parts store will read out the stored trouble code in the car's computer for free. If the code pertains to the fuel EVAP system, the code probably set because you ran out of gas. Copy down the code and then have it erased. The check engine light should go out. If it comes on again, have the code read and the problem checked out.

I have a kia sportage diesel 2002, it acelarates by self, without stepping on gas. What could be the problem?


May want to check the throttle cable. Sounds like it is sticking. You can spray sum WD-40 on it that usually helps. The throttle cable is the piece that moves when the gas pedal is pressed. Near the intake on top of engine normally.

Engine check light is on what i can i do


Most of the time Check engine light will come due to Gas and gas cap issues. If you ran out of gas and gas lost pressure it will bring the light on. Make sure to fill take with premium (91 octane) gas and make sure gas cap is closed completely. loose gas cap will cause the engine light to come on. If after doing this you still get the engine light warning, take to authorized mercedez deal for code check.
