What do you think about this video?

Martin Jimenez: ugh do electric vehicles have check engine lights? :-P Tesla!

Tom Ultimate gamer: Really a fuel cap can make engine check light come on

MickyR: Hi, i have a problem with my car, i bought a Ford, end of story lol

Liberate666A1: Also if it flashes when driving then it’s a major problem

IT'S YOUSEF - Gaming & Lets Plays!: so lets just say i change oil recently and filled up my car with unleaded fuel and i went pulling launching and belting the car on some hard turns and lets say the check engine light came on i double checked fuel cap wasn't the issue. I stopped for a bit turned off the car check engine light was still on for 10 seconds then it turned off then i turned the car back on drove for about 20 mins then back on again this happened 5 times same thing over and over i checked the temperature gauge car was a bit below half way to hot which is normal for it. I looked for any leaks no leaks made sure engine oil plug was tight and couldn't find the issue. The Check engine light was not flashing just to let you know it just came on and stayed on till car was turned off and back on

Tragic City: Thank you for sharing this wonderful knowledge.

King Gooch The Troll King: how to reset a check engine light

1. open the hood
2. check what the problem is
3. you found the problem
4. grab a gun
5. shoot the hell out of your car
6. repeat 5

that is how you check the engine light in your car

mmarkie1223: Very helpful thanks a lot

Rachael Dye: I don't suggest driving with a check engine light on, but there have been times where I couldn't get my car into my mechanic at the time (my mechanic is awesome). I've never done any significant damage as a result. The only time I get off the road immediately and call a tow is when my engine light starts blinking. I learned that the hard way, had to get a new catalyic converter because I kept driving when the engine misfired. DUMB idea on my part!

Ronnie Woods: Hi my engine light comes on and if I wait it will go out in 2 to three mins what could be wrong and where do I take it ?

Deadman 25: Well I still have a problem with my car the rpms move slightly and I replaced the spark plugs and it still does it so I might need to replace the cam positioning sensors or Knox sensor and if that doesn't help then idk

James lamson: I have a 97 Malibu that gives a PO341 error for the cam position sensor. And the car doesn't want to run smoothly all the time. And I had a problem with overheating and changed the temp sensor and then the fans run all the time!! Not supposed to do that. Should come on only when the car reaches about 220 F. But it also runs with less than full gas mileage. Best to get it checked at a parts store for what the codes mean if the car is driveable.

Glenw Weitzdoerfer: Driving a car with a bad O2 sensor does have a chance to cause engine damage by making it run too rich or too lean!

moyah8: Great video. Just came across this and will over the weekend go checking the various locations you mentioned for a possible cause of the "check engine light". Thanks again.

Rosemary Robartes: Yes ! I used a 1.5 k ohm resistor instead of the cat temp sensor to richen the mixture to pick up a bit more power through the Rev range . The light is on but the car certainly doesn't limp !

Abram Maripane: good video i like
