Check Engine light is on in your 2003 Mazda Pickup B-2000 Just bought it and had everything checked outIs it triggered by mileage?
Check Engine Light is triggered by a fault with the emissions system. You have a problem with the emissions system. Code is stored in ECU and can be accessed with an OBD2 scan tool. Maintenance Required Light is triggered by mileage and just means service is required, normally oil change.
When your vehicle's engine is checked and maintained as recommended in it's owners manual you may expect to?
What could be the reason for your service light on your 95 Volvo 850 is this just for a routine oil change or could it be something serious?
Not necessarily- it all depends upon how well maintained the engine has been, and also whether it's the vehicles' original engine or not. A high-mileage engine that has been well looked after and cared for, will be in a better running condition than a low-mileage one that hasn't. Also, if the vehicle has had a replacement engine fitted, then mileage will be irrelevant anyway as far as the engine's condition is concerned.
At 65, drive time would be about 3.75 hours, with best possible mileage. At 70, drive time would be about 3.5 hours, with worse mileage. At 75, drive time would be just under 3.5 hours, with atrocious mileage. Use cruise control if possible. Best possible mileage that way. Cruise lets the engine computer handle everything, instead of your foot controlling the raw fuel output and the engine responding likewise.
Everything is prone to wear-and-tear (which is what high mileage represents), but the engine and transmission are what you have to worry about the most if you're looking at a high-mileage car. Check to make sure rust hasn't eaten away too significantly either if you live in one of the snowey states.
The gas mileage of a 1964 bug depends on if you have had a new engine put into it, on average a 1964 bug has a 1450cc-1500cc engine in it. Meaning it will have around 50-56 hp. The lower the horse power, the smaller the engine. If you have a 10% smaller engine you get about 6% higher gas mileage. If your slug bug has an ac kit it lowers gas mileage by 3. On…
The size of the engine can affect gas mileage. The larger engine produces more power and can use more fuel. The engine size alone does not determine what fuel mileage you will get though. Factors like how heavy the car, gear ratio used, proper maintenance and how aerodynamic the vehicle play a major role fuel mileage.
2001 ford Taurus engine light came on sounds like marbles but it still starts and can drive it has plenty of power?
"Sounds like marbles" (!!) This does not sound good... Have your car professionally inspected for the cause of the sounds. The engine light may, or may not have anything to do with the sounds. But you should also get the trouble codes that triggered the Check Engine Light and those will give you good information about what also is going on with your engine. I also have to ask: have you checked the oil lately…
You cannot know by looking at it. This is why the belt is changed at a set mileage as listed in your owners manual. You change it when your vehicle reaches that mileage. You did not list make, model, & year so I cannot tell you the mileage at which it should be changed. Warning: If your engine is an interference engine and the belt breaks you will have serious engine damage.

If you have driven through water and the check engine light in your vehicle comes on, you should take your car to your mechanic. You will want to have your vehicle checked for any damage caused by the water. Probably will find that the ignition (plugs, wires, etc) got wet and triggered a misfire code (P0300). Allow the system to dry thoroughly and when the system detects there is no misfire after a few drive…
