Check engine light codes emission and no known fix? Drives fine most of the time. Every once in awhile there is a loss of power.
Check Engine like on, does not seem to effect engine performance. Pricey repair estimate from the Dealer; over $2,000.
SAME ISSUE, BUT NOW LIGHT IS OFF BUT EVAP CODE ON CODE READER
I had problems with my car for about two weeks. the check egine light had been on since i got the car in summer of '10. recently car started to act up and i found out one of my vacuum hose was unhooked and melted & had holes in it.
Lose power
check engine light came on. ran with a month on no motor problems. went to get checked said evap canister was leaking... 1100 to repair. seems if there are MANY of us having an issue, shouldn't it be a recall issue??????????
Emission light comes on and off. Car runs fine but guess I'm going to get a scan
On the engine at service. Most likely a sensor I guess
Catalytic converter and vacuum leak
My yellow Check Engine light is always on. Has been since I got my 99 5-speed turbo in 2010. Personally, I ignore it. Doesn't seem to indicate anything problematical.
a code indicating low secondary air pressure.
