car   Service Engine Light On problem of Chevrolet Malibu

The vehicle is a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu. Since I purchased my car in the later part of 2012 (used with 40000mi) I have had several incidents starting with the radio, when I turned on the rear defrost the radio would go to complete static on all stations. While traveling approx. 30mph the service engine light would come on then after stopping the car and restarting the light would go off as well as minimal turning to the right the service esc light would display, in addition to the remote start not working half the time, I have replaced the key fob and gotten a new key and still the same problem exist. The dealership has replaced the radio with a brand new part and still the stations are not clear and while sitting in the car parked all of the lights in the dash sometimes come on for service and the car would idle low then high. The lights in the dash will sometimes completely dim and the display on the radio will be digital. My car now has about 65000 miles on it, and still the car sometimes stalls at stop signs, will be without power and the service esc displays as well as service engine. This has happed too many times to count at this point. Tuesday may 6 2014 my husband was driving approx. 25mph all the lights in dash came on and engine stalled on him so he restarted the car, upon restarting all the lights in the display turned off. Saturday may 10 2014 the radio was complete static. . . This is a constant issue, I keep my gas tank plentiful and have only owned gm vehicles. I am researching other makes at this point. This service engine light on problem happened on Jan. 1, 2013.

car   Service Engine Light On problem of Chevrolet Malibu

The vehicle was a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 1G1ND52J33_. I would like to commend your company for making a durable product. However, I purchase a 2003 chev-malibu in 2004 from carmax-raliegh, n. C. According to the carfax, there was only one previous owner. I purchased the extended warranty for only three years and had the vehicle serviced by rick hendrix Chevrolet in durham, n. C. After the warranty expired, I would take my vehicle to a certified mechanic in norfolk, va that I have dealt for the past 20 years. Consequently, I would have repairs done and he kept the car running as required. However, about year 2010, during regular maintenance - the check engine light came on, followed by the service engine light - then the vehicle would start but no display on the dash and no electrical functions worked? about 5-10 minutes later with car still running - the dash would light up and electrical functions operable. My mechanic was able to eliminate to check engine/service engine displays with required maintenance. However, the dash display and power loss continued? he decided to replace the ignition switch and shortly afterwards the same problems reappeared? now I have two separate keys, one for door/trunk locks and one for the ignition. Presently, even after maintenance, the vehicle has started missing/putting or possibly losing power? I contacted gm (800)222-1020 and (800)630-2438 and was told that my vehicle was not on the gm recall list? can you confirm that information and the reason why it is not on the list? do I really need to wait until my family is injured or worst before a defect is acknowledge?.

The first time 3/11/2014 was the day following my service for oil change and tire rotation. I was pulling away from my house and the car just stalled. I put it into park and the car restarted. The next time was 3/17/2014, again I was pulling away from my house and the car stalled, started beeping and a service engine now light came on. I restarted the car, parked and called the dealership. A towing company picked up the car and took it to the dealer. The dealer informed me that nothing showed up in the memory and they could not do anything because it wasn't happening for them. They kept the car for several days before I picked it up. Approximately 2 weeks later the car stalled again while I was on the freeway on ramp. I tried to call the dealer but the phone would not work. Ford took the car again and could not find anything in the memory. Within 2 weeks this happened again while getting onto the freeway. In addition to the stalling problem, the sync system has reset itself, the compasses are not functioning properly, the external temperature gauge doesn't work all the time and now the phone randomly starts calling people. I was given a phone number for corporate by the dealership. I called and after playing phone tag for several days the representative (joshua) told me that if it stalls again that I should not attempt to restart the car and I need to call the roadside assistance number and wait for them to come. In addition, he said under no circumstances should they attempt to restart the car because if they do it will reset the memory and Ford cannot fix the problem. I asked about the recalls on my car and was told there were none; however, I was on the website and there are 2. I asked why Ford did not send me a recall notice and he told me that Ford doesn't do that. I am afraid to drive my car. Its been to Ford 7 times now. Help!. This problem occurred on Mar. 11, 2014.

When she was completely stopped noticed the service engine light, a red batttery light and wrench light all came on. Waited 10 min for me to get to her. We restarted car seemed fine. I took to Ford dealer last night. Ford dealer called this morning as advised fuel throttle problem and said no problem warranty extended on that problem to 150,000 miles 10 years, you will not have to pay.

car   Service Engine Light On problem of GMC Sierra

The vehicle is a 2001 GMC Sierra. When my issues started, I would fill my gas tank and the gas gauge would plummet to empty. While driving, it would go to full, back to empty or be anywhere in between. At that time, there no no mechanical issues, just the annoying fact that you had no idea how much fuel you actually had. This went on until this spring, when I had the first potentially dangerous incident. I was driving down a county highway at approximately the speed limit and the truck's engine just shut off. No power steering, nothing. It happened just as I was coming to a stop sign thankfully. I was about 50 miles from home and was able to call a friend that manages the collision center of a local car dealership to see about getting a tow or his opinion as to what was wrong. After about ten minutes and after numerous attempts, it restarted. I talked to several mechanics and got the same answer from all of them: the fuel pump and sending unit fail in GMC trucks around the mileage, 95,000 miles, that I currently have on the truck. The gas gauge is still erratic, I have had two episodes of the vehicle stalling and now the service engine soon light is coming on and when it is put on an analyzer it says emissions, but there is nothing wrong with the emissions system. I have also talked to owners who have had theirs replaced and everyone says to get a factory made pump because the cheap aftermarkets break down even quicker. I googled the information and the problem appears to be widespread. This service engine light on issue occurred Jun. 9, 2012.

The service engine light went on and I had made an appointment. When I took it in for inspection, the dealer said they could not recreate what I was talking describing. In addition, when I drive the power steering has had some issues. It has never drove in a straight line after two alignments. And it can be tough to turn the wheel.

car   Service Engine Light On problem of Land Rover Freelander

The vehicle was a 2003 Land Rover Freelander. F-4 flashing on the odometer, both check engine lights on, and the hill descent/traction control lights coming on. Vehicle quickly dropped power to no power. Service engine soon light and car lost power while driving, something with the throttle was repaired the first time. Then the harness was repaired and two weeks later the vehicle is doing the same thing again. Mechanical problems continue now going on the 4th trip to the auto mechanic shop. There is no warranty left. Maybe there is something to be done. It is obvious that I am not the only one having the same problem and yet nothing has been done to correct any situation. I will never purchase another landrover in any model and will let anyone that is interested in purchasing a landrover of any model that they are not worth buying due to all the mechanical problems that knowingly seem to occur over and over. Where landrover is making no attempt to make it right or even notify such situations in their vehicle. I would rather drive a Ford at this point then to be stuck with this high maintenance problem of a high end vehicle. Landrover might not care about their consumers because they are selling the vehicle and who cares what happens after words we have our money. Thank you for taking time to read all reports of your worthless vehicles. Not impressed!. It was 02/16/2012 when this service engine light on issue occurred.

car   Service Engine Light On problem of Land Rover Freelander

The car involved is a 2004 Land Rover Freelander. The VIN of this vehicle was SALNE22224_. I purchased the 2004 Land Rover, Freelander in 2006. It has only 28000 miles on it. About a month after the purchase, I had to take it in to replace the window regulator. A few months later, I heard knocking noises under the hood. I took it back in (lr dealership) and they said there is loose washer somewhere. They were not able to replace the part, thus they only repaired the problem. I could still hear the noise, especially from a coldstart. I also had took it in for them to look at an ac problem. It sprays water out through the air vent. I report the problem at least 4 times. Everytime, they said they have fixed the problems. However, as of now, we still have that problem. Recently, we have a thermostat leak at 52000 miles. The SUV maintenance schedules are up to date. The SUV is 5 months and 3000 miles pass the warranty period. I have to pay $800 to repair the leak. Two days ago, will on the freeway (going 70mph), the service engine light came on. Then the engine stalled for a second and jerk forward violently. The service engine light went off and the tc (traction control) light turns on and the 'down hill' car symbol on the dashboard illuminates. The car was unable to start when I turned it off. I then let it sit overnight and was able to start. After the car has started, I notice the 'service engine soon' light illuminate. The SUV has only 53000 miles on it as of now. I feel that this car is poorly designed. Not only it put my life in danger, but it also put the lives of my wife and my 1 year old daughter. When we bought the SUV, we thought that it a safe SUV for our family. However, the incident two days ago almost put our lives in harm ways. This issue happened on 10/12/08.

I faithfully had my oil changed every 5,0000 miles max as this was drilled in my head growing up from my dad. Approximately some time in March I was driving to work I get this loud whining sound coming from the engine and the car loses all power the turbo went. I have a new turbo installed and still supposedly need another vvt just 2 years after they replaced this part and now there is a humming/whining noise coming from the rear of the car not to mention (2) tie rods are bad.

car   Service Engine Light On problem of Mazda Cx-7

The car involved was a 2007 Mazda Cx-7. Engine ceased on the highway while I was driving. Mazda says it is my fault for going 2000 miles over the oil change. However, oil light never came on; car was not driving any differently than normal; and no service engine light came on. Even though car is under warranty, Mazda is refusing to pay for the damage. It is hard to believe that a well-maintained card with a little over 50k miles will cease it engine because of 2000 miles over an oil change. It was 12/12/11 when this service engine light on issue happened.

car   Service Engine Light On problem of Mitsubishi Outlander

The car involved is a 2003 Mitsubishi Outlander. On 12/21/07 I had my car serviced for the 75,000 mile service at the dealer. Then on 2/14/08 I was driving home from work when all of a sudden my Mitsubishi Outlander starting shaking and the service engine light came on. I immediately telephoned the dealer to see what they recommend I was asked to bring the car first thing in the morning. The very next day I barely made it to dealer which is only 7minutes away from my home (in the same town). As soon as I pulled into the dealership the car turned off. I was told that the heating coil burned out which caused my spark plugs to burn out and the car to misfire. I am being told that I may need to replace the engine if any of the pistons were damaged if not then I only have to replace the parts which were damaged. What I don't understand is how can this happen to a vehicle which has had every recommended service performed to it on or before the recommended mileage?!. It was Friday, February 15, 2008 when this service engine light on issue occurred.

Shortly after purchasing our 2009 Nissan Murano in sept 2012 a loud noise was heard at times in the floor board. . . It was discovered to be a broken motor mount. . . This was replaced under 30 day warranty from place of purchase. The sunroof cover also was defective as it would not open completely at times and also required replacing. Since this time in 2013 the wipers do not work properly at all times. . . This has not been recreated for a tech to inspect. . . . Sometimes they do not go as fast as should if heavy rain and other times go too fast if barely drizzling, this is on the intermittent function. February 2014 was due to take in for routine oil change that day and service engine soon light came on that morning. . . Was advised needs new catalytic converter, was at 85k, manf. Warranty went out at 80k, extended warranty we purchased and paid extra for was to cover up to 150k; however, does not cover this part. Nissan says nothing on them, funny they are the ones who made the vehicle, and regardless of this being a used vehicle (we are the second owner) this is not something you can tell in advance is going out. . . We have not had any noise prior and this was first time light came on. This is very costly and something that has to be fixed in order to pass inspection or I will not have a vehicle to drive. This service engine light on issue occurred Sep. 18, 2012.

There was a loud popping noise and black smoke came pouring out and everything shut down. I have since noticed there is a recall for this same thing but was told it is not for my specific VIN number. I am arguing with the insurance company because they refuse to repair the engine part which they said was not due to the accident. I think the impact from the wreck knocked the oil filler cap off because when the geico adjusters had the car they could not find it. I found the oil filler cap down in the front between the front of the engine and front of the car. Oil was all over the engine and seized from what the geico adjusters said. I am placing a complaint with the insurance commissioner on geico for not picking me up for road side assistance, taking to long to repair the bumper, not knowing what they are doing taking so long to be able to repair the car. They tried charging me a $500 deductible when I had uninsured and underinsured motorists and several other issues with them. Information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6). This problem occurred on Mar. 19, 2012.

car   Service Engine Light On problem of BMW X3

The car is a 2008 BMW X3. Vehicle identification number (VIN): WBXPC93468_. Service engine soon light came on. Diagnosed at dealership that it was the dmtl pump that senses and gas leaks. I was told by service manager that it was out of warranty and I didn't have to replace it since I lived in PA in an area that didn't require it to work under our state inspections. The only problem was that the service engine light would be on and I would not know if something else was wrong with the car. Later I was talking to service manager at Lexus who was a former BMW service manager who stated it was covered under PA emission laws. I contacted manager at BMW who informed me that I would have to contact BMW. I registered a complaint with BMW who came back 3 weeks later denying any coverage. When asked why gentleman could not answer stating he was not a technician. I repeatedly stated from my research that PA adopted California emission law in 1996 and from my understanding it should be replaced by BMW. Once again I was told no coverage and I asked if his 3 weeks of research involved a corporate attorney. He would not answer. It appears that a BMW buyer is given 4 year warranty because after that everything is denied with no explanation as to why. This dmtl pump is a sensor for fuel leaks and could really cause a serious accident if not replaced. I believe PA emission laws understand the hazard and that is why they state it should be replaced. This problem with BMW goes back over 10 years according to internet forums. . I cannot understand why they have not been held accountable and made to correct this hazardous situation. It was Thu., Nov. 15, 2012 when this service engine light on issue happened.

Jim moloney, general director of customer service, asking me to bring the car in to have the ecm modified to prevent failure of a known design problem. . .

To prevent a failure that is almost guaranteed to happen!. It was Monday, Mar. 14, 2011 when this service engine light on issue happened.
