Check Engine Lights

Buick LeSabre Check Engine Light On

Oldsmobile Alero Check Engine Light On

I drive a 2004 Oldsmobile Alero. My check engine soon light came on. What does this mean? I only have 70,000 miles on this car. I have never had to do anything but get the oil changed. When I press my brakes, I feel vibration and a humming sound.

1998 Ford Escort ZX2 Check Engine Light Comes On

I have a 1998 Ford Escort ZX2 (5-speed Manual). Intermittently, when I hit a bump on the highway my “Check Engine Light” goes on for a moment and the engine feels like it downshifting and the momentum of the car “pulls back”. Then almost immediately, the light goes off and the car drives like normal.

Pontiac Grand Am Check Engine Light Comes On

I have a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am. They say I need to have the gas vacuum hose replaced and that is what is causing my engine light to come on. I just had it in for replacement of electrical sensor chip and 3 hours of diagnostics to find this out. Why didn’t the diagnostics show the hose problem at the same time? Am I just getting ripped off?
