    Hi - I have a fantastic 2003 Honda CRV that is one of the best vehicles I have ever owned. The little green outline engine light just came on but there is no performance problems and I just had the oil changed and fluids checked and yes I did check the gas cap. What else could this possible be? Is it serious enough to go to the dealer or do they really put it to you when you get in there? - Thanks - John

Yes, as long as the honda isn't doing anything weird, such as strange noises, poor performance, etc, you can drive it to the dealer. They'll check it for engine codes which will tell them what's wrong. Probably an emission component (such as a sensor) isn't working properly. countrycurt0

MY OIL LIGHT ON IF I DRIVE IT COULD IT HURT MY MOTOR


STOP DRIVING IMMEDIATELY OR AS SOON AS YOU SAFELY CAN PULL OVER. YOU WILL DESTROY THE ENGINE WITHIN MILES. CHECK THE ENGINE OIL DIPSTICK WITH ENGINE OFF. IF THERE'S OIL IN IT. HAVE IT TOWED. IF THERE IS NO OIL ON DIP STICK ADD OIL TO FULL LINE AND START ENGINE. LOOK FOR LIGHT TO GO OFF, HOPEFULLY. LISTEN FOR KNOCKING AND LOOK FOR BLUE, WHITE OR GREY SMOKE FROM EXHAUST. LOOK FOR WET AREAS WHERE OIL MAYBE LEAKING OUT UNDER CAR OR OIL STAINS WHERE CAR IS USUALLY PARKED. HAVE A SHOP CHECK FOR ENGINE DAMAGE.

Engine light is on and VTM-4. Safe to drive 20 miles to dealer?


If it says check engine, or service engine soon, or is a yellow picture of an engine. Then yes it is safe. If it is a red light that says oil or temp or pic of an oil can then no.

My low oil pressure light has come on in my Ferrari 599 2008. What does this mean.


It means you have low engine oil pressure due to a failed oil pressure pump or pressure regulator which IS going to lead to engine failure very soon or you have a faulty sending unit or gauge. Do not drive it, get it towed to the dealer! Not meaning any dis respect to your self, but have you checked the oil on your dip stick? Low engine oil level will also cause this...if it's very low or not on the dip stick again do not drive it but go get oil with a friend and top it up and start your car...if the low oil pressure light goes away you got lucky, but there is the possibility you have already harmed the engine depending on how long the light has been on and you may want to see your dealer...we're not talking about a hyundai here, your engine is probably more valuable! haha

Is there any problem that i should look for in buying one please


Hi, volvo's have pretty solid engines so unless you hear an load knocking noises coming from the engine or blue smoke coming out the exhaust you should be ok engine wise, but here is a list of things you should check
1, listen for knocking sounds from engine
2, look for blue color smoke coming out of exhaust, if you see blue smoke then walk away as it means engine needs rebuilding.
3, check the oil, check oil level and color if their is anything that looks like mayonaise then this means head gasket has gone and needs replacing this can be expensive, if the oil level is ok and looks ok then the engine should be fine.
4 have a good look around engine for oil or water leaks check on floor under engine for signs of oil or water dripping off engine,
5, check all wheel arches for signs of rust
6. go gor drive and test the brakes and check all the gears including revers as gear box work can be expensive.
7 check the car will turn left and right on full lock and listne for any knocking noise whilst turning round islands etc this could mean drive shaft or gearbox trouble
8 listen for knocking noises going over bumps if your hear any then this would mean ball joints need replacing, not that expensive to do but you could use this to lower the price f it does knock.
9 check all the lights and switches work inside the car.

that list should give you a good idea of what to look for if you have any concernes walk away their are plenty of other cars out their. have a look underneath at the floor to check for corrosion as it would be expensive to get the floor welded up and also ask about service history.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

I own a peugeot 207 and my info came on saying oil pressure is to low and the oil can and stop came on on the dashboard.Is it safe to drive to my garage about 5 miles away and what might be the problem....


Have you checked the oil since the light came on?

Make sure the engine is off and pop the hood. look on the right or left hand side for the dip stick. Pull it out and wipe it off and then reinsert it and pull it back out. Look to see where the oil level is on the dip stick. Fill accordinly. One notch on the stick is one quart of oil. If you refill the oil and start it up and the lights do not go off then it will be safe to drive it to the shop. Oil is in it. However, If there is loud tap tap tapping noise coming from the motor after the oil if full do not drive it. You have probably lost the oil pump and the engine is not getting oil. if you hear no noises and the oil light is still on you can drive it safely to the shop. Let me know how it turns out, Raz

O.K,first don't drive the car with that light on unless absolutely neccessary(as in if you need to get somewhere safe or something).Second,yes you can add oil, 5W30,will be fine (does not matter which brand)but you need to make sure you don't add too much.Look for the oil dipstick under the hood to check the level of oil.There will be some kind of mark on the dipstick to show you where the level shhould be, down towards the end tip of the dipstick.There may be 2 dipsticks under the hood,1 for oil and 1 for transmission fluid so make sure yourr looking at the right one.Hope this helps.good luck.

I have a 2000 vw beetle.  this morning the check engine light came on and i drove it about 60 miles today.  when i got home, i checked the oil, and it is EXTREMELY low on the dipstick.  i looked underneath...


Yes you can add oil as you go. this will be fine. Just dont make a habit of it as you can never tell where your oil level is without looking at the dipstick.
