2006 P T Cruiser, engine light keeps coming on and can not figure out why
False Check Engine Light Started when the Car was Only 2yrs Old
engine light on, dealership replace PCM, engine light on again after 20 miles, dealership has replaced TIPM, 4 times and the engine light still comes on saying bad TIPM, dealership says does not know what the problem is, therefore they can not fix it.
I get false check. Engine light and oil low light ofter
engine light comes on goes off after 4 or 5 days
had to replace the radiator after getting my last oil change cost was $529.00 which i thought was a bit high

I just had the PCM replaced , new not rebuilt, and the engine light came on. Need to get my car smogged but can't grrrrrr with light on
after getting oil change the light indicator symbol appeared. i don't notice a change in the way my car drives? could this be a false alarm?
