If you are unsure about what your diagnostic trouble codes mean; have your Express 1500 diagnosed by a professional automotive technician. Good luck with your knock sensor issue! Need to make sure you get the distributor aligned corectly or that will cause all kinds of problems as well. Christ if I wasn't wrong! If the oxygen sensor proves to be faulty, it would take longer to replace that. If they do not find a place that does. If so, there is a code stored in your van's onboard computer.
It was often worse in wet weather and at one point the vehicle would die for no apparent reason usually on a rainy day. Any service place can pull the code s for you. Question: 2001 chevy suburban 2wd 5. Solid vehicle mechanically otherwise though. Since the code refers to the circuit, simply buying and replacing the oxygen sensor won't definitely fix the code.

Flashing Check Engine Light: If your check engine light is flashing, stop driving your Express 1500 and have it towed to your nearest mechanic - you probably have a very serious problem with your car and you risk ruining your engine by driving it.
If your pump has the remote reservour loosen the clamp on the reservour hose also. The solution they came up with is New Crate Motor. It sounds like the sensor to me. They thought the crankshaft position sensor was bad. This reservour is held in place be two throught the pump bolts which are removed at the back of the pump.
If you have the factory specs, you could even check the resistance of the sensor to determine whether it's working correctly or not. The garage didn't tighten up the drain plug, so I drove it on the highway and the oil drained out and seized the engine. It isn't a problem to turn it off, but it is an inconvenience I would like to fix. Family friends coworkers neighbors business people and delivery people. The intake manifold is warped and no longer seals with it's gasket Apparently they have since redesigned them, However, this problem happens so far down the road that there's no way Chevy is going to do a damn thing about the cost for the repairs. Based on what you've told me about your Random Misfire problem, this appears to be beyond simply replacing plugs, wires, and coils. The service engine soon light, commonly referred to as the check engine light, on a 2000 Chevy Silverado, or any vehicle, can have a number of meanings depending on the issue.
This week hooked up the camper started to tow. I was hoping it would come back as an oxygen sensor or something minor. After being at the Chevrolet dealership for almost a month mainly because I didn't need the van as I told them my problem was eventually solved. After being adjusted to zero, if it moves from zero it's a good early warning the the distributor gear is being eaten by the cam gear. Oil pressure dropped down when I stopped, then came back up while driving. I'd recommend inspecting all the wiring and connectors leading to the sensor before replacing it. When the test is active, it will read in degrees of retard or advance in the relationship and needs to be adjusted to zero.
Certain tests require specific conditions to be met before they complete, such as the vehicle being off for a certain time or traveling for a certain distance; this can result in the check engine light staying on until the conditions are met and the tests are completed. Vehicle Problems Find out what , view the , or keep up-to-date with the. These entail inspecting specific components for failure. If you find the code maybe post it here and then you will get advice on where to go to resolve it. Also, if it were the sensor, where would I find it if I wanted to replace it myself and is it an easy job? Any ideas or experience would be appreciated. If you want to continue diagnosis, here are some things to read first - ; ; ; Good luck! How did you adjust the position of the distributor when you replaced it?

However, if the light flashes, it indicates a severe problem that could potentially damage the catalytic converter. When the truck ran out of gas it likely set a misfire code, and possibly other codes. If gas is getting into the crankcase then your O2 sensors should not be your next concern. Is there a problem that I may have created that need to be looked at? Look for a clean looking busy place with nice people running it. Posted on Jun 17, 2009 most any sensor going bad can cause the check engine light to come on,try disconnecting the posative battery cable for 15 seconds ,then put it back on,will reset the codes, or take it to auto zone,they will test your computer for codes at no charge to you. You may also need to remove the fan shroud.
And their scan tools cost more than mine. Remove the three mounting bolts, place a large pan under the pump to catch drips, and remove the prevously loosened hoses. It should be located behind the grille in front of the radiator. It's entirely possible the problem has nothing to do with O2 sensors. You didn't say how many miles are on the Chevy, but given it's nearly 10 years old and the symptoms I'm going to guess the miles are starting to get up there.
You need to get it hooked up to a scan tool or code reader. They go by hat the scanner tells them and nothing more. Shortly after that, the light went out. Did you re-check the distributor adjustment with a scan tool? A good repair shop should be able to find it. This must be done with a scan tool.
