    My have 1997 Volvo S90. It is also having a similar problem. The "Check Engine" light stays on and many times I get a yellow color flashing light. When I get this yellow color flashing light the speedometer does not work and there is a slight misfiring. What could be wrong?

Check the timing belt. It should have been changed at 60,000 miles. Sounds like you have lost some teeth on the synchronous belt resulting in lost timing. Damage to valves can occur. look under plastic cover on the end of the head for the belt

Brake juddering, failure: ABS or master cylinder, or anything els


i would say have your abs system bled. this only requires a computer and someone who knows how to use it. after bleeding the abs then the rest of the system should be bled. if you had a bad secer it would set what is known as a hard code and the light would always stay on.

Ford Focus engine warning light on


Check the pcv hose from the intake manifold to pipe with the car running. They get soft with age and will collapse while the engine is running. Just fixed my 2004 for this problem. Remove battery cable for a few minutes to reset ecm. Also a loose fuel cap will turn light on also.

It means that the pre heat is in operation.It is a system that burns diesel to create heat to warm up engine quicker so that warm air comes into car sooner.The smoke is the exhaust gasses from the system and normally the whistleing and smoke stops when engine reaches running temperature or on short journeys approx 1 minute after engine is turned off
During summer when no heat is required and air con is on cooling it should not light even when starting from cold

hope this helps

Change oil light stays on for a few seconds


you must reset the oil life . WITHOUT STARTING THE ENGINE, put ignition in the ON position with the dash lights on. NOW this MUST be done within 10 seconds. Push the gas pedal all the way down to the floor and release 3X. This should clear the light. Sometimes necessary to repeat if not done in a timely manner.

Engine knocking on toyota corolla after replacing damaged sump


oil pan and sump damage are very likely to lead to oil distribution problems, this is not temporary, if you hear a knock have it checked by a local mechanic who can verify it for you, it is possible that the engine is damaged internally.
