car   Check Engine Light On problem of Chevrolet Impala

I cranked my 2009 Chevrolet Impala leaving a nearby gas station and the message service traction control flashed, then engine power reduced, and the check engine light came on. My car drove sluggish home at a very slow speed. Luckily I was only about 5 minutes from home. The next morning no message was displayed and the check engine light went off. I took it to advance auto parts and the code p2127 was displayed twice - throttle pedal position sensor. I see most of these complaints are similar to mine I just happen not to be on the highway. Is gm investigating this because this is serious with multiple occurrences?.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Chevrolet Avalanche

I was driving on a bridge when the check engine light came on and the engine power reduced. The truck immediately dropped to below 30 mph and I could not accelerate up the bridge and barely avoiding an accident, as this was in a heavy traffic area. I was able to get it to the dealership and are working on it now. This if the fifth time this has happened to my truck. My wife and I just sold our 2007 Chevrolet tahoe and the only reason was the engine power reduced error occurred on it seven times, three in month prior to selling it. This is a major problem and could have easily resulted in a severe accident. Both cars were only ever serviced at Chevrolet dealerships and each time, they insisted it was fixed and the problem was gone. We have no faith in Chevrolet at this time!.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Chrysler 300C

Purchased a 2006 300c srt8 in 2014. This is the 2nd time that this has happened. After the 1st refueling the car stalled and bucked and then after a few miles calmed down. I thought perhaps it was bad gas. During the 2nd refueling, with 93 octane, and just as the fuel clicked off, the engine stalled. No check engine light in either situation. The car was worse than the last time. The car stalled at each light all the way home. This happened approximately 4 times and then it stalled again as I parked it in my driveway. I called the local dealer concerning this and they said they are only ordering 6 replacement gas tanks a month and that 95% of the time an additional flex pipe or tube breaks during the repair procedure and that I would be responsible for this additional cost. What kind of a deal is that? I thought warranty work was to be at no cost to the consumer.

I started my car on Sunday August 3, 2014 and the engine wouldn't turn over, after waiting a minute the car started.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Ford Focus

I was traveling from the route 128 highway exit ramp onto the interstate 95 going approximately 50-55 mph, as I rounded the top of the ramp I went to accelerate onto I-95 when I found I was slowing in speed/decelerating and found that I had no pick up with the vehicle. I was actually coasting ,the engine appeared to be on but I was unable to accelerate. As I coasted to the break down lane the check engine light flashed on. I sat at the side of the road for approximately 5-7 minutes, the car did re-start. Due to what appeared to be a dangerous spot on the highway I attempted to continue driving towards an exit. Approximately 4 miles down the highway ( I traveled at 50 mph in the far right lane) the car again, stopped accelerating was decelerating, I was pumping the gas petal without success and I coasted to the side of the road. I had the car towed to rodman Ford in foxboro MA. The service advisor is telling me the diagnostic shows nothing is wrong with the car. He also reports even though the check engine light flashed on twice their is no indication of the computer registering any type of failure.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of GMC Acadia

My GMC arcadia 2008 constantly stalls on me the issues started August 5 and has continue up to last night August 17th. While I'm driving the car would shut off on me and the check engine light would appear. I wont be able to restart the car so I had the car towed to the nearest GMC dealer. After paying for a diagnostic report the mechanic told me they could not find any codes indication the check engine light even came on. Last night I was scared because I left work at midnight after driving about 10 minutes the car started jumping then turned off and the check engine light came on in the middle of the street . I called on-star and they were dispatching a tow truck because the car would not come on. After 45 minutes I tried to turn the car on and it came on so I cancelled the tow truck service. This is a issue that's been happening for the last 2 weeks. I cant get the issued fixed because the last 2 diagnostic reports that were ran states no issues. I also had on-star run a diagnostic report right when the issue happened and they also told me they don't see any issues. I took a picture with my cell phone when the check engine light came on but no one seems to know the issues the SUV is facing. Everything stays on the radio the lights just the car shuts off and wont start for like 45 minutes to an hour. I've looked on different GMC arcadia forums and it seems I'm not the only person having this issue with this same make model and year car. Someone on the forum suggested I make a compliant at the ntsa.

8/4/2014 dear american Honda motor company, inc. I am a proud Honda owner, and I chose Honda as my auto of choice for its compact size, its known reliability as well as great gas mileage. I have been holding on your customer service line @ 1-800-999-1009 for quite a while and a few days, and I have been unable to speak to a customer service representative, so I am in this letter corresponding my concerns to you. I own a 1997 Honda Civic lx which I purchase in 6/12/2006 new. My Honda has just legitimately clocked 90 thousand miles as of 8/4/2014, so I am queried I would be having problems. I was recently informed by a Honda dealer as well as I checked and read on line that Honda issued a recall on these models for transmission problems as well as the paint chipping off in several areas. I never received any kind of notification from Honda nor had an opportunity to have my Honda checked for these problems, although I had my Honda serviced in 3 major pennsylvania Honda dealership service departments on a regular basis. It was never reported as a major concern to me, my auto check engine light is on and off and the car stutters and jerks while accelerating indicating problems, I can drive without a major incident doing neighborhood chores or physicians office visits if the auto is going 40 mps or under, and when taken to be serviced by me and checked, it is not showing up. Recently my auto bogged down on the highway only going 50 mphs while the speed limit is 70, I was frightened by this occurrence and I felt the auto was going to stop and I would be unable to get out of harms way! I am a senior citizen on a fixed income and I am asking for ¿goodwill repairs¿� concerning these problem as well as a repair for the chipping paint. Would you please get in touch with me so these can be resolved?.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Honda Odyssey

Our Odyssey has always shifted a little rough, but I attributed that to its age but on 7/18/14 we were on grocery store visit and the check engine light, tcs light, and maintenance required light all came on. We took it to local mechanic to get the codes read and they said it was the transmission control system, but it was driving fine so I kept going and had our normal mechanic take a look at it about a week later. He too said it was the transmission control system, and that we shouldn't need a new transmission, so take it to Honda and get them to look at it. The service advisor kept saying "this vehicle isn't going to go very far, it's going to leave you on the side of the road" but, we don't have that kind of money right now, and since it's driving "ok" just shifting the same as it always has, we decided to take it home.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Hyundai Santa Fe

Driving on interstate 1 hour east of asheville, nc in heavy traffic. At approximately 230 pm on 8/20/2014 the check engine light came on, the car shuddered and lost all acceleration. Complete loss of power managed to coast to the side of the road and turned car off. Restarted and drove to Hyundai dealership in asheville, nc about 30 miles away. They performed a software update and stated problem was resolved. Continued driving on highway (traveling back to dayton OH), and within 1 hour check engine light came on, at about 700 pm, a complete loss of power and no acceleration, and had to coast to the side of the road, restart the engine, etc. Again, incredibly dangerous situation on a busy interstate. The same exact situation happened 2 more times on our way home on the interstate, until we could finally take it to our dealer where they replaced the throttle control assembly and did another software update. This was incredibly dangerous, could easily have resulted in a very bad accident and merits investigation. Please contact me if I can provide additional information. Thank you for your consideration.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Hyundai Sonata

We were driving highway speed when all of a sudden the cars check engine light, esc light came on while in the middle of traffic and the motor completely shut off causing no steering or any control of the vehicle, was able to coast to the side of the road and tried restarting the car with no luck. Called the dealership immediately and they stated it had done that to the previous owner but was not warranted to be fixed, but yet we only purchased this car 6 months ago. Sat on the side of the road trying to figure out what to do, when the tow truck came by and scanned in which I got the following codes: p2106,p1295,p2135. Its a sensor on the accelerator pedal and causes the car to shut off immediately because it cant respond to the throttle body. This is very dangerous as we could have been rearended and seriously injured. Please contact ASAP!!!!!!.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Infiniti G35

I have done some research online. Lots of people are having or have had the same same problem. Very prevalent. As you are driving the down the road the car starts to make some noise then it completely shuts down the motor, the check engine light comes on and does not start once it stops. There is no warning. It takes a while for the sensor to reset -- putting me and my vehicle in harms way. This happened to me on a very busy overpass. The vehicle shut down. I had a hard time steering and getting over out of the way. I was almost hit several times by other cars driving 50 plus mph. I had to have the car towed. Once we got to the auto repair facility. It started again but then shut off. I was googling this symptom and the year, make model (2005 infiiniti G35 engine stall) and this was all over the internet. Several other people were put at risk of injury. I was convinced this was my problem, too. The auto repair facility ran a diagnostic and this was the code they got as well. I already knew what the problem was going to be. So my question is. . . Why has this not been recalled if? it is dangerous. I don't want this to happen to anyone else. Thank god my daughter was not driving.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Infiniti G35

As I was accelerating to access highway, I was not able to accelerate my vehicle. It was as if I was running out of gas. I kept pressing the gas pedal and it slowly started to accelerate and seemed fine. A few minutes later when I was sitting at a red light, the car died. I put it in park and restarted and it was fine. A few days later the same thing happened as I was in the carpool line at my daughter's school. Car was running, while I waited and it suddenly shut down. When I restarted, the check engine light was illuminated and remained on. I checked my manual and thought it could be the gas cap wasn't on tight enough or bad gas. Filled up my tank and a few hours later check engine light went out. Today the car died as I was pulling into my driveway, however immediately restarted. Researched recall information and contacted Infiniti and was told my vehicle was not part of NHTSA campaign number 03v455000.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Jeep Patriot

I purchased my 2011 Jeep Patriot from kraft Nissan November 16, 2013. When I initially purchased it they printed out the vehicle history report showing that the vehicle has never been in accidents and that there was only one previous owner. Since my purchase I complied with every scheduled servicing and hadn't had any major problems. Well, July 15, 2014, as I was driving on the highway, the transmission overheating light lit up so I drove to the nearest gas station and immediately contacted the Jeep customer service line and the operator instructed me to let the car cool off before starting it back up to continue with my journey. After about an hour and a half, I began to drive again and I immediately contacted kraft Nissan to schedule an appointment to get my vehicle inspected. My appointment was for July 17, 2014, and I left my car there with them for 10 hours, finally I called them and they explained that my transmission fluid was dirty and that I needed to get it flushed and the price would be over $500. I declined the service because the price seemed to be a bit steep, and I began to call around to find a better price, meanwhile, I was charged a $95 servicing fee even though that service should have been covered under warranty. As I stated before, I have never had any major problems with my automobile, well, July 18, 2014 my check engine light lit up and has been on ever since. It is now Sunday, July 20, 2014 and the light is still on. I am planning on taking my automobile back in to kraft Nissan to see exactly why my 'check engine' has been on since my visit with them.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Land Rover LR2

On April 11, 2014, a check engine light is on and rmps goes up and down at idle. I went to the dealership and had to pay $340. 00 for diagnostic and software updates that should be free and covered by Land Rover, not by its customers. They use this trick as a high jacking point to squeeze money out of their customers' pockets. I have never experienced any such thing with any other vehicle I have ever owned. This is a summary of charges and codes: 66806 cja 2. 50 use dss tester to diagnose engine light on/ read codes p050b flaged nec to perform ltb00264 ecm update, then perform ltb00094 for stumble update bcm ipk solar sensor replace engine air filter 1 lr005816 filter - air cle 66806 cja 0. 30 install new air filter waiter engine light software updates. Please investigate these software system defects and make Land Rover liable for payment for its own defective software. They should be made responsible and accountable for any defects. I expect to be reimbursed for full payment as a result of this investigation. Thank you! elisabeth astafi.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Mazda MPV

Vehicle is manifesting rough idle when turned-on with check engine light on and/or flashing. Engine and vehicle is jerking intermittently when driving at any speed. The vehicle was repaired last year through dealership but this kept happening for the third time within a year. Dealership indicated engine misfiring due to burnt engine coil. If this keeps happening even after being repaired for several times within a year, something is terribly wrong with Mazda engineering. This is a tremendous safety issue specially for my family and other motorists, and this type of vehicle should be subject for recall.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Mazda CX9

I purchased a used 2009 Mazda cx-7 in June 2012. In may 2014 my check engine light came on. I took the car to the nearest auto service station which was not a Mazda dealership and the engine stopped when they tried to turn it on. I had the car towed to a Mazda dealership and had a quote of $8,000 because I was told I needed a new engine. I purchased a 5 year/100,000miles warranty with american guardian in 2012 when I purchased the car. I filed a claim with american guardian and was told that the engine fail from lack of oil. I presented all my oil change receipts which I had changed every 3 or 4 months over the last 2 years. The auto service company also sent out their insurance inspector to inspect the car to see what caused the engine to fail and if they would be liable. Their report stated that the timing chain jumped which cause the "cam shaft retard" code. The mechanic did show this code to me on their computer before the car was towed to Mazda. I reached out to Mazda USA and they concluded that they agreed with american guardian and cannot help me. Now I'm left with an $8,000 bill that no one wants to cover.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Mercedes Benz C280

Check engine light came on and would not turn off. Took vehicle to an authorized mercedes dealership I was told the issue was the timing in balance shaft of the engine. According to the the mechanic Mercedes Benz was well aware of the balance shaft issue at the time the vehicle was built, but the problem only shows up on some of the c-class models and due to the mileage on the my vehicle there was nothing he could do. If this is an issue mercedes was aware I shouldn't have to pay 6k to fix. There should be something mercedes should do to help owners with the cost of repairs. I had no indication this was a problem other than the service light appearing out of no where two months after my service visit which was two months prior to the check engine light coming on. The mechanic told me I could continue to drive my car with the engine light on if it doesn't bother me , however I'm afraid the car will quit running. I was planning on taking the car out of town on vacation next month I don't want to get stranded on the road in the middle of no where.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Mercury Milan

My car stalled suddenly in moderate 35 mph traffic on 8/16/14. I was nearly rear ended while I had to restart my car as there was nowhere to pull over. On 8/17/14, my car stalled suddenly after traveling . 5 mile from home (at approx. 20 mph), so I returned to my house. On 8/18 at 7 am, I spoke to sheehy Ford in richmond, va, and was given an appointment for throttle body repair to occur on 8/19 under their "customer satisfaction program" 13b17. I was told that I was not in danger of getting stranded, so I had my husband follow me to work on 8/18. The car stalled again on 8/18 while traveling at 40 mph. Rather than replace the faulty part which they did have in stock, Ford merely recalibrated the powertrain since the check engine light was not lit when I dropped off the car for service, even though I notified them twice of the multiple incidents (via phone on 8/18 and in person on 8/19). I have filed a complaint with Ford since the contaminated internal motor contacts of the throttle body remain in my vehicle.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Mercury Mariner

Check engine light came on while driving 55 mph on the freeway on 8/11/14. No signs of malfunction initially. Later the check engine light went off on 8/13/14. Took Mariner to firestone auto care to diagnose check engine light. They told me it was p0022 - vct solenoids, but the engine was still running fine. They reset the computer and told me the next time the check engine light comes on to take it into a dealership. So the check engine light comes back on by 8/17/14. Started noticing shuttering between 50-60 mph on 8/22/14. Took car into dealership on 8/27/14. Was told that the vct solenoids needed to be replaced at approx. $620 and this car only has 29k miles on it and of course is out of warranty. There is a service bulletin on replacing the vct solenoids but of course no recall has been issued. A recall should be issued and I should receive reimbursement for this repair for something that is obviously a widespread problem with Mariners and escapes from 2009-2011.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Nissan Altima

I¿m an owner of a Nissan Altima 2004 2. 5 (brought the car brand new). Today while driving on the highway, the check engine light came on. So I quickly got home and ran the diagnostic tool which returned codes p0035 ¿ crankshaft position senor and p0725 ¿ engine speed sensor malfunction. I found many and similar complaints by Nissan Altima owners with the crankshaft. I called Nissan USA and they offered no assistance. I informed Nissan USA that there were previous recalls on the crank angle senor (item affected: engine and engine cooling, date announced: 7/7/2006). Their fix was to reprogram the ecm but the issue is with their crankshaft. Per research and online, there are many issues with Nissan¿s crankshaft position sensor which could affect the engine/stall the engine. It¿s a matter of time, where drivers¿ safety and a person¿s lives are at risk.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Nissan Altima

Based on what my daughter told me, on Sunday 8/24 she was traveling on I-96 in maryland. She was on the millard e. Tidings bridge when she had to slow for an accident. While slowing, her car just shut down and would not start. She was stuck in the left lane of I-95 on the bridge. The check engine light kept coming on when she tried to restart the car and the car would not start. Aaa was called but the police had to shut down I-95 to push her from the left lane to the right hand shoulder past the bridge. She was towed to baltimore and the vehicle was dropped at a repair facility. The next day it was diagnosed with a bad crankshaft position sensor and repaired. I researched and there is a recall by Nissan for this very problem for our year and engine Altima. When I called Nissan, they indicated our vehicle was not involved in the recall. Huh? it appears that Nissan should widen the recall as this problem obviously still exists and it puts drivers in an extremely dangerous position of having their car and all its functions shut down and not restart. Can it get any more dangerous than an interstate on a summer weekend? I'm lucky my daughter handled the entire ordeal calm and collectedly or there could have been serious consequences. Can you get Nissan to acknowledge a larger pool of defective vehicle and to expand the scope of the recall? obviously they didn't get them all.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of SAAB 9-3

I'm not certain if this is a safety issue but it certainly qualifies as an emissions issue and a manufacturer's defect. On every cold start, the engine would run rough until I put it in drive and would run fine after a few minutes. I let it sit and idle for a while once and the check engine light came on as a result. A local dealership found low compression across 2 cylinders and informed me it was the dreaded valve issue (intake valve cupping they called it). The dealership had fixed a number of these and from various online forums, I see that a number of 2007 and 2008 SAAB 9-3 owners seem to have experienced the same problem. The repair consisted of removing and replacing all 8 intake valves, hand lapping them, removing and replacing all valve seals, and refinishing the head mating surface. The repair was very expensive, several thousand dollars. I've had the car back for a couple of weeks and the problem is gone. I was told this issue seems to happen around this amount of mileage and in cold weather states. Of course my warranty had expired 6 months earlier and I imagine this is the case with many other SAAB 9-3 owners with '07 and '08 vehicles. With the new parts, I was told I shouldn't run into this problem again.

I was driving my 2008 Suzuki Reno on the road on my way to work when the car started to slow down despite me trying to give it gas, and the check engine light appeared. I pulled over and put the car in park and turned it off for a moment. I turned the car back on and the check engine light remained on. When trying to shift back into drive, my car jolted and an x appeared over the d where the gears are located. Frightened, I turned the car off again and called the dealership, who told me to bring it in. They explained it was the transmission range sensor is going to cost me $200 to replace it because the warranty wont cover it. I highly believe it should be cover or do a recall on it. I give thanks to god I wasn't injured or I injure some one else please take me to consideration. Thank you and god bless you.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Audi A4

Took the Audi A4 quattro to the Audi connection of cincinnati dealership for a check engine light (cel) on p codes p2293 & p0089 which indicates a possible cam follower, cam shaft, and/or high pressure fuel pump (hpfp) issues back on Thursday morning April 10th, 2014. Later, I spoke with lee at the service desk who stated that the cam shaft was worn and would be a covered item on this internal Audi campaign; however, he would not be able to get to it until the next business day since it would take a full day to repair pushing it into Friday. I received a call Friday April 11th at approximately 11:30 a. M. And it was lee stating that the cam shaft would not be replaced due to an oil pressure issue that damaged both cam shafts and engine. He later stated that the engine would have to be replaced that could cost upwards of $8,000. 00. I later suspected oil sludge issues that were also on a recall. Yes, the Audi connection did later relent, after stating earlier that they would not perform the work, offering to perform the repairs at a later timeline; a timeline that I could not afford to be without a vehicle and paying on a rental. This particular vehicle; Audi A4 t2. 0 quattro 2006 year, make, and model has a history of oil sludge issues and Audiusa has had class action lawsuits on such events- all anyone has to do is to do their research and locate issues concerning the very issues I too have experienced.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Audi A4

I am writing regarding a sad story about my 2002 Audi A4 quattro 3. 0 sedan . While I realize that the car is not new, and with 152,000 miles on the road; I am still disappointed with the series of events that has happened to me, not once, but twice now! about a week ago, as I turned the engine on, I heard a loud knocking like something had been hit and fallen apart in the engine. At the same time, the check engine light came on (flashing). I took it to my trusted mechanic. At this point, I am thinking that the issue was with a coil – but not really since they have been replaced and not that long ago, might I add! while the car was being inspected, the mechanic heard a noise coming from camshaft adjusters. Once they opened the case, they found screws lose that had literally fallen off and broken. The camshaft adjustment housing was also damaged, amongst other parts (I have pictures). How can this be possible? after all, the bolts are encased, and it is not like anyone messed with them. The sad part is that the same had happened on the other side a year ago.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of BMW 328

A letter from BMW came in June 2014 stating that my vehicle is effected for important safety recall and that I would be notified when the parts become available to have it fixed. The recall was for vanos assembly bolts. The letter states that I may hear increased noise, check engine light may come on leading to reduced power leading to engine stall. I noticed on this website many people have had similar complaints and leading to steering wheel to lock and engine to shut off which can lead to injury and death of anyone on the roads. I have called my dealer as well BMW headquarters and both state that they have no idea when the parts will become available. So for now I have to drive a car with a safety recall and I can do nothing about it other than hope I don't cause an accident due to my car malfunctioning. This is criminal of BMW and needs to be addressed. I asked them if I could bring my car in and have a loaner instead till the parts become available but was turned down, unless I want to pay out of my own pocket. This needs to be addressed! thank you for protecting americans on the road!.

I am an owner of a 2007 BMW 328xi. Two months ago, I brought my car to a BMW dealership for check engine light issue. They told me that cylinder 6 was the problem. So they fixed cylinder 6 and replaced all spark plugs. On 24-Apr-2014, my wife drove the car to work and came home. That evening she took the kids to an event at their school and parked the car. After the event, she tried backing the car and the car won't go into reverse. So, I dropped the car off to the dealer ship and after they completed their dagnostic test, they told me that I have transmission problem which will cost $6000 to fix.

car   Check Engine Light On problem of Buick Enclave

After 66,000 miles of easy driving, our 2008 Buick Enclave has a broken wave plate and needs a new transmission! the transmission failure caused two separate dangerous driving situations, one of which could have been fatal. The first event occurred when stopped at an intersection to make a left turn. I had two children in the back seat. When the intersection cleared, I began to make the left turn, but the engine failed to accelerate and merely coasted into the lane of on-coming traffic. The left side of the vehicle and the 7-year-old child sitting there were left exposed to the threat of impact by fast-approaching traffic. After about 2 seconds, the engine accelerated and we were able to leave the intersection moments before on-coming traffic arrived. The second event occurred two days later. Traveling 45-50 mph on a local highway, the engine slipped gears and would not shift out of first gear. The check engine light came on. We returned home at slow speed. In the driveway, we put the car in park, then in drive and reverse. It barely moved in either direction. The next day, we were able to drive it to the nearby dealership. It shifted gears on the way, but the warning light stayed on. The dealership informed us that the wave plate is broken and that the transmission must be replaced. We tried contacting gm customer service but received nothing more than a recorded message asking us to hold on the line. We held for over one hour and received no customer service. A review of many website postings reveals a widespread failure of the Enclave wave plate and transmission, that gm is fully aware of it and has taken no steps to address it or to ensure of the safety of the thousands of Enclave owners and other drivers on the road. Failing any accountability by gm, we insist that NHTSA take action on this widespread safety hazard and issue a recall.
