When my check engine light comes on, it is caused by the temperature sensor not working. As soon as the light comes on, my temperature drops to cool. If the light goes out, the temp gauge returns to normal.
Transmission jumping hard is the malfunction causing check engine light to come on,most likely its the tcc solonoid causing this or a possibility of causing this.
According to the 2006 Ford Expedition Owner Guide : The " CHECK GAGE " light comes on if the engine coolant temperature is HIGH or the engine oil pressure is LOW
NO it does not. The check engine light comes on when the ECU detects a problem with the emissions system and has nothing whatsoever to do with the outside temperature.
why do check engine light comes on
It's not supposed to be on. It comes on when engine reaches certain temperature. But if you see that temperature gauge is going in the red area you need to check the fan relay, its fuse, and the temperature sensor.
If an engine transmission light comes on in the dashboard there can be a potential problem with the drive-train. The engine's computer should receive a diagnostic to determine if there is anything wrong with the transmission.
Have electronic vehicle speed sensor in transmission checked out. It will cause loss of speedometer function and set a fault code(check engine light).
This vehicle does not have a dip stick for the transmission fluid. To check the fluid the transmission needs to be at operating temperature so the engine should be running and in park. There is a plug located under the car, near where the right axle comes out of the transmission. Basically, when you remove the plug the fluid should be level with the hole, so add fluid until it comes out. The car must be level to ensure that the proper amount of fluid is added. You do not want to overfill or under fill it.
Check coolant level Could be thermostat opening and closing due to engine coolant temperature flutuation
In my experience no, But it all comes down to what kind of car you have, All cars are different
If it is like my Ford Explorer , the check gage light comes on if the engine coolant temperature is high , the engine oil pressure is low , or the fuel level is near empty
On a 2002 Ford Ranger : The check " gage " light comes on if : The engine coolant temperature is TOO HIGH The engine oil pressure is TOO LOW or The fuel gauge is at or near empty
No , the CHECK " GAGE " light comes on if the gas gauge is at or near empty , the engine coolant temperature is HIGH , or the engine oil pressure is LOW
Check the engine oil, sometimes when the oil is low the check engine light comes on while sitting still and goes out when you accelarate.
If it comes on it means the temperature of your engine is too hot. Your engine is overheating.
The check engine light comes on at start up for a bulb check. If it stays on with the engine running the computer has detected a malfunction. You need to have it checked for codes.
Vaccum leak or transmission control problem comes to mind, need to diagnose.
You can buy the check engine computer and the book comes with it. I know, I bought one. When your check engine light comes on, you plug it in and check the engine and it will give you the code and you look in the book for that code and it gives you the answer.
No, the check engine light comes on when the computer detects a malfunction and sets a code.No, the check engine light comes on when the computer detects a malfunction and sets a code.
I am having a problem right now with my check engine light too. I don't know why your motor shuts down, but in the book it states that when your check engine light comes on, you are having a problem with your emission control. For you, it might be a sensor is shutting down your engine. I know last month Mister Transmission was having a free check out your engine special, so you might want to call there to see if they can put your car on a diagnotic. Good luck
Your transmission fluid might be low.
I had all sensors replaced in my 03 Trailblazer and the check engine light stiil comes on. Why?
If an check engine light does not come on it is a good thing. When your check engine light comes on, it means you need service done on your vehicle.
AnswerThe transmission needs to be at operating temperature. With the engine running and in park, remove the plug. it is located under the car, near where the right axle comes out of the tranny. Remove the plug and the fluid should be level with the hole, so add fluid till it comes out. This should be done on a hoist. If you do it in the driveway, you are probly using jack stands and the car wont be level, so you will over fill it, not good.
