If it still runs, probably a faulty O2 sensor. Don't worry about it unless you hear a noise or something.

I ran my 4 runner for about a year with the check engine light on and it did no harm.

Google your car make, year and model with check engine light and you'll probably get some helpful information.

Re: %&*@ Check engine light and i cant afford to fix shit.
In some cases you can damage the engine by ignoring the check engine light..

Check the code it is throwing.. might be a cheap fix.

Could be as simple as a gas cap no longer sealing, as the poster said.

Your car only needs to run for another 3 weeks cause everything is over on Dec. 21. Expect more electrical issues in the coming days due to stronger magnetic fields from Planet X as it gets closer.

As posters say...OR...Low oil equals bad...Low water in radiator equals bad.

Do you check your oil and change every 3000 miles?

If it's running well, do what I mentioned.
My truck has it's light on now for 15 years,
almost 300,000 miles on it. Just do what I mentioned.

May your vehicle always get you to where you gotta go.

Don't buy anything based solely on the codes....they may have been caused by something else and you may spend money unnecessarily.

O'Reilly Auto Parts will let you rent the code checker for free. You simply write out a check for the purchase price of the checker, run the check on your car & then return it, they'll give you your check back.

After fixing the problem you may have to disconect the negative lead off of your battery to turn off the light.

Just disconect it for a minute and reconect to see if the problem is gone.

A flashing engine light usually means a missfire and the car needs tuned up.

Before doing that I recommend pulling the cables of the battery for a minute to reboot the computer. Sometimes the engine light will not come back.

That is for cars older than 1996 equipped with OBDI or something similar. 1996 and newer cars don't do that...thank god, I hated counting the flashes.

DO NOT disconnect the battery before you document what the code was. It may be needed later....speaking from lots of experience.

Re: %&*@ Check engine light and i cant afford to fix shit.
your gas filler cap may not be seated properly, setting an EVAP code. Take the advise of ASE Guy and get the code pulled at Auto Zone and have them clear it from memory after noting it for you.

My engine light came on 4 days ago,had the auto zone guy pull the codes....

circuit condition or idle speed higher/lower than expected

Explanation:
The ECM has detected that the IAC counts higher/lower than expected.the engine speed is not in its expected range.
Probable cause:
Vacume leak on engine
dirty throttle body
IAC motor defective
Poor electrical connection to the IAC valve

2002 dodge ram 1500 quad 5.9

Help please

Rpms jump while idle and driving
acts like its not getting power/enough air, sluggish.

BS if its 96 or newer the "check engine" light won't come on unless there is a problem.

The maintenance or service light on Europeans will come on for the purpose you posted. Maybe you are mixing them up.

The OBD2 system on these cars is only looking for problems, it is not a maintenance reminder.
