Have it checked for codes, That is the same as the check engine light.
I have just had mine done at the weekend, the gearbox needs to come off along with the driveshaft and various other bits and bobs that get in the way, took about 5 hours in all.
Most likely needs a tuneup done. Check the timing and change the normal tuneup part.
A check engine light comes on for a reason. The engine computer has detected something wrong somewhere in the engine management system and your car's computer needs to be scanned for fault codes to determine the source of the problem. If you have done all that then your cars check engine light needs to be reset, how this is done I am unsure. Get the engine serviced! The dealership can provide the service and cancel the alert.
The cost can range from about $500 to over $2000, depending on what exactly needs to be done. If your car is old, you may do better just trding it in. But ask your mechanic first to see what needs to be done.
can't be done without dropping subframe
That will depend on what damage was done. A good mechanic can tell you whether it is safe to start or needs to be towed.
needs to be done with a diagnostics machine.
You can either get under the dash and disconnect it, put a piece of tape over it if it bothers you or you can buy and engine analyser for about $69. Most of these have a button on them to shut off the check engine light. If the reason your light is on is because of a service that needs to be done and you did it yourself instead of paying a dealer, it will stay off. If there is actually something wrong, it will come back on when you restart your engine.
yes they but it on a scan tool and they should tell you what the problem is and what needs to be done.
A transmission transfers power from the engine to the wheels. If your transmission needs to be repaired, you need to have this done in order to drive your car.
There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.
You can't it is a closed system and it needs to be done by a professional.
Apparently it is at the back of the engine(under doghouse). I haven't done mine yet!!
To make a 318 into a slant 6 engine on a 1970 Dodge Dart you will need new engine mounts, fuel lines, and bigger radiator. What needs to be done first is to remove the old 318 and add the new engine mounts first. This is not something that should be done if you don't have the proper tools and equipment.
if its the vauxhall 2.0 dte, the answer is NEVER ...the engine has a chain, not a belt!
There are several things that needs to be done for a tune up on a 1996 Chevrolet Suburban. Some things that need to be done are an oil change, replacing spark plugs and plug wires, and a new distributor cap, rotor, PCV valve, air and fuel filters.
the amout of work done on the engine
Not a job for any one except a trained professional. Severe engine damage can occur if done incorrectly.
The maintenance required light just means there is regular scheduled maintenance that needs to be done. Look in your owner's manual and it will tell you exactly what needs to be done. Can be just an Oil/Filter change. This applies to the Maintenance Required light and not to the Check Engine light.
it all depends on how well you take care of your engine. if you change the oil, all filters spark plugs, etc when it needs to be done; then you can for sure see quite a long life-span of any engine.
Management tels personell what needs to be done and who and how it needs Tobe done.
YES it will fit right in there and bolt right up. But it won't run and transmission won't work. You will have to install a 1996 ECM / ENGINE CONTROLL MODULE / Computor. 1996 model 4L80E transmission, compleat engine and transmission wireing harness and then change the fuel pump too. So there you go. Getttter done.
You have to replace the Whole engine and all the controls and most of the fuel delievery system. Buy a different car
What work needs done? You will need a good set of metric tools, and the rest depends on what is wrong with the engine.
