well they dont do engine readings i was told it has to be 1996 or newer..... but neways heres a way to save 80 to 100 dollars! find your diagnostic plug under glove box typically, look for plug with two wires attached might be stuffed up behind your glove box more then some other wires, take that plug and run a paper clip or small needle pliers and turn your ignition to on ( dont start car) then watch your check engine light it'll flash. Long Flashes equal 10's, Short Flashes equal 1's. so LONG LONG LONG SHORT SHORT SHORT SHORT SHORT SHORT SHORT= 37 hope this helps out. The throttle position sensor is used by the computer to determine how much fuel will be sent to the cylinders from the injectors. The engine may run rough, accelerate poorly, run extremely lean potentially burning valves or extremely rich wasting fuel. To properly determine the cause of the check engine light you will need to use a code reading device. Many of the auto parts houses, such as Auto Zone, Checker Auto, Kragen Auto or Schuks auto have code readers that you can borrow or rent.

A fuel level sensor will not affect performance. Fuel level can due to weight of fuel and accumulated heat in the returned fuel from the engine.

A bad crankshaft position sensor on your Chrysler 300 will cause the engine to run very rough or not run at all. The malfunctioning sensor can cause damage to your engine, if not repaired.

po320 is the engine speed circuit malfunctioning.( AKA) crank sensor.

The check engine light for the 2001 Isuzu Rodeo often comes on because of a sensor that is damaged or malfunctioning. The most common sensor is an oxygen sensor and when reset, this often allows the light to be reset.

It is the engine speed curcuit that is malfunctioning. Replace the Crankshaft position sensor.

Not likely. A bad O2 sensor would illuminate the check engine light and the engine performance would suffer.

There are several signs and symptoms of a bad MAP sensor. Some of them are increased emissions, poor engine performance, and engine surging.

the lambda sensor regulates the air and fuel mixture going into the engine. if the sensor is not accurate then the outcome is a loss in engine performance and worse gas mileage (less economical).

One of the most common issues related to overheating on the s-series is a malfunctioning engine coolant temp sensor.

If the service engine soon light is flashing on the 1997 Geo Tracker, you might have a sensor that has been activated because your vehicle is due to be serviced. You could also have a sensor that is malfunctioning.

A bad O2 sensor can affect gas mileage. It is an emissions sensor, so when it goes bad, it does not reflect emissions performance on the car, which could cost a lot in gasoline.

Nothing. The knock sensor is a passive part that will not affect how the engine runs.

User Avatar

It is the Intake Air Temperature sensor usually located on the air inlet housing. When malfunctioning it will post error code P0111 and illuminate the Service Engine Soon warning llamp.

Possibly the coolant temperature sensor. Once it heats up the sensor takes action and if it's malfunctioning it could cause it to run lean....or too rich. Possibly the coolant temperature sensor.

a knock sensor will retard or advance ignition spark, improving gas mileage and will not shorten engine life , if any thing it will extend engine life.
