Known Problems

A defect in the throttle body can cause the Check Engine light (MIL) to illuminate. Replacing the throttle body will repair this issue.

The computer can misinterpret a low battery voltage and can cause a false Check Engine (MIL) light to come on. Updating the PCM can correct this issue.

If the engine is knocking or pinging when accelerating, the PCM may need updated software.

The PCM can misinterpret data from the air fuel sensor and set a false Check Engine (MIL) light requiring a PCM update to repair.

The PCM can misinterpret misfire data and set a false Check Engine (MIL) light requiring a PCM update to repair.

A sticking intake manifold runner solenoid can cause the Check Engine light (MIL) to illuminate. Replacing the solenoid will repair the issue.

The exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR valve) can fail, resulting in the illumination of the Check Engine Light.

A faulty transmission range switch can cause a no start condition and  Check Engine light (MIL) illumination. Transmission removal is not needed to replace the transmission range switch.

The Check Engine light may illuminate with a transmission fault code. The repair for this concern is to replace the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and flush the transmission.

Impact damage to the front of the vehicle can cause the primary oxygen sensor to blow fuse 15 and cause the Check Engine light (MIL) to come on. In most cases the primary oxygen sensor needs replacing and a new fuse installed to repair the issue.

On certain models poor igniter connections can cause misfires and catalyst deterioration. Cleaning and securing the connections will correct the problem.

Contamination can get in the distributor, cause a misfire and set a Check Engine light.

A Check Engine Light can come on because some models may misinterpret the ratio of air and fuel being burned for combustion. The powertrain control module (PCM) will need to be replaced to fix the problem.

Some models can have a problem with moisture entering the fuel pressure regulator and affecting the amount of fuel being burned in combustion. This would set a Check Engine Light.

A worn speed sensor drive gear can cause a surge when using cruise control and illuminate the Check Engine light. Transmission replacement will be needed.
