You never know when it is going to happen. Immediately pull over to a safe place and have your vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for repair. Why can't they rebuild my engine? So if there is a problem in one particular area that is preventing another self test from running, you can have a situation where one problem is fixed, but another still exists. The vehicle also had the same type of failure while at a stop light. Here is how we suggest you proceed.
Some self-tests are not run until preceding ones have run successfully. Question: I ran out of gas in my 1999 Silverado. Ignoring this problem will mean that a the vehicle will not pass the next smog inspect … ion, if you live in a state like California, and b you will likely get reduced gas mileage and possibly performance. And they can be vastly different from manufacturer to manufacturer. The contact currently has the vehicle parked at home and does not plan to drive it because he doesn't feel safe in vehicle. Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
Rent a pressure guage from advance or oreilley's and check fuel pressure if needed. Two separate mechanics agreed that this was highly unusual and a fluke. The engine or check engine light will illuminate on the control panel of your TrailBlazer when the vehicle needs routine maintenance, if there is a problem with its emissions control system or if the computer detects a change in engine performance. There is a sensor on the gas filler nozzle that detects the cap and its tightness. I have always purchased Chevy's but this will be my last one. Told me if it came back on to bring it back in.
So again, they keep the truck and they're going to fix it. These may work; I don't know. The oxygen sensors could also be the cause for the check engine light. If you are convinced the noise is new and present all the time you might want to consider asking the dealer to provide the labor to install a new clutch for free, as long as you purchase the part from them. The designers, engineers, and corporate rat bastards that delight and profit in this type of repair, should be in a jail cell next to bernie madoff.
So I took it back to the dealership and they kept it for a couple of days and called me an told me that Accelerator Sensor Pedal needed replacing, that's the code it's giving out now. The Check Engine Light may stay on steadily or it may flash when the vehicle is accelerated. This information is actually in the owner's manual. Also, I see that there were also alot of issues with the speedometer. It is best to pull over to a safe place and have the vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for a thorough inspection and repair. I feel half afraid to drive it anymore. When it is on sometimes it blinks?????? In Jan of 2009 my problem first began.
Keep me posted, Blessings, Austin C. Stopped at the shop anyway to explain to the mechanic what happened and he went out to check it, while the light was not on but told me the code was still coming up as a bad Map Sensor. Other possibilities include a sensor that's really dirty muddy , a short in the wiring, etc. I'd let it go for a couple of days and see what happens, sometimes it can be the gas cap another time it could be the oxygen senors getting a false reading. I've taken the vehicle to the dealer and they cleaned the throttle and changed some filters and 2 days later. If the problem does not reoccur, the codes will be erased by the computer. They repaired it and I picked it up.
Two weeks later I have to take it back becasue the speedometer went past 115 miles while sitting still, a week later the transmission starts stalling while going forward and the engine fan is running constantly even on start up. Through online research, the contact discovered numerous complaints regarding the vehicle. Had the car repair and P00017 keep come back on. This will help your mechanic evaluate the issue. The contact mention that the check engine light was illuminated prior to the failure.
For example, does it happen when you accelerating, driving on the highway or does it appear at low speeds? If you are unsure of any abbreviations, check out the acronym list by clicking on the link at the left. If the engine is overheating, the fan clutch will engage to spin the fan faster to help cool the engine down. When they raised the hood I see wires everywhere. The same lights come on and the engine power is reduced. The vehicle sounded as if it wanted to accelerate, but couldn't. If any engine light codes return, the truck will need further attention.
