Almost any parts store like Autozone will read the codes for you, and then we can tell you better what to do. Often it is just cleaning the mass air sensor, because when it get oil foam on it from the PCV, it does not read correctly. But you have to remove it before cleaning, so you don't get cleaner in the intake manifold. But it could be O2 sensor, etc. We need the ODBII codes.

you need to have the trouble codes checked with a obd2 code reader.
it could be the throttle postion sensor if the car would not accelerate but there is no way to tell for sure until you see what trouble code the vehicle is throwing. most auto parts stores will check them for free. hope this helps

it means its due for service. If u wanna get rid of it without servicing the vehicle then as you start the car simultaneously push the ODOMETER reset button on the dash and it will wipe it. This will however just delay the point your car needs servicing.

Alot of times a voltage drop to the O2 Sensor can cause your check engine light to come on. Even tho the O2 sensor is wrong fine.

Interesting problem.. since not US spec. Is there a 'remote keyless (fob)' programmed for this vehicle? That's the only way to DE-arm the immobilizer (anti-theft) feature (based on US specs). Unless you have this key fob (keyless entry remote... which must also be programmed for this vehicle), the only other way is wait 5 minutes with the existing key in the ignition, then it should start (US specs). You will still need to have an 'ACTIVE' keyless remote programmed for this vehicle... otherwise, you'll continue to run into this problem.

Engine clatter


Have a mechanic or shop put a mechanical oil pressure gauge in the oil pressure sending unit's mounting hole. Check oil pressure against the spec for your car. Does the warning light turn on every time this happens? If so, try to check oil pressure when the light is on-you may have an intermittent oil pressure problem, or oil pressure may just be too low. Don't believe it's a sensor, don't know how, but not familiar with your newer ride. Something as simple as a pick up tube gasket that leaks could cause low oil pressure. If that happens, the top end of engine will clatter-not getting enough oil up there.

I would try cleaning the throttle valve body and also the automatic idle speed control valve mounted to the throttle body, this is a common symptom of a dirty throttle valve and idle speed control valve. Use a product called "CRC" Throttle valve cleaner, run the engine and spray it into the air intake of the engine with the supply hose removed, hold the throttle up while you do this as it will try to stall, use up about half the can and then shut it down and disconnect the battery NEGATIVE cable for 5 min's to reset the system learned strategy, drive it for a few days and see if this corrects the problem.

1995 jeep wrangler just stops running without warning.


A bad crank sensor will shut the jeep off suddenly, while driving down the road, then restart later and it repeats over and over until you replace it.

I have a 1996 GMC Jimmy with a v6 vortec in it and i have a huge problem. When i bought the truck it started missing so i thought plugs and wires and oil change and its good. Well the problem isnt always...


Check fuel pressure it should be at least 52 psi if anything less replace fuel pump.If pressure is good then pull vacuum line off of the fuel pressure regulator and if fuel runs out replace regulator.

Warning engine light


I could not find a code for the neutral switch . The neutral safety switch only works when you start the vehicle, so it will not start in gear. I would take the car to another shop for a second opinion.

Low coolant light


I have a 97 Cutlass. The low coolant light is on as well. After talking to some of my mechanic buddy's this is a know problem with this model of vehicle (Cutlass/Malibu). You can either replace the coolant reservoir with the sensor or just ignore the problem as even with replacing the parts it is likely to come back on.

Hope this helps
