#2294 of 2315 engine check light flashing when turning on ignition
Sep 24, 2011 (2:34 am)
This problem started to occur about 6 months ago now and again but now its daily.
Turn on ignition- Lamp test then engine check light dissapears allowing engine to be turned.
When not working
Turn on ignition- Lamp test then engine check light stays on and flashes quickly. Engine will not crank.
Turn off ignition and repeat. This cycle is repeated untill flashing light goes off allowing engine to be cranked.
Yesterday I had to repeat 6 times. When engine did fire it died almost straight away. I then repeated cycle and started successfully.
I've plugged in my elm 327 code reader but no codes are logged.

that happened to me also, if you smell gas its your fuel intake gasket which I had to replace twice. Not cheap either. But the mechanic told me it could be dangerous.

Thanks for your reply. Interesting. Don't know what gas could be though.
diesel is safe right uptill its high flash point.
A mechanic I was talking to said it sounded like an immobiliser problem and because the engine light doesn't stay on its not recorded in the fault codes section of the computer.
Has anyone else had a flashing engine check light on ignition?
Has anyone else used a code reader that can read codes from immobiliser system?
#2298 of 2315 Gas Smell but No Leaks
Dec 14, 2011 (11:28 am)
My 99 Rodeo (3.2L V6) had an intermittent gas smell in the engine and cab, and rough idle. I replaced the EGR, IAC, PCV and Fuel Filter. Runs smoother now, but gas smell has become constant. I do not see any gas leaks anywhere inside the engine or out. I have read different comments on it being leaks in the Injectors, the Fuel Vapor Canister, Vapor Solenoid or Fuel Pressure Regulator. Before I go spending any money on these I wanted to see if there were any ideas out there. Thanks.

Solved. After replacing the Fuel Vapor Canister and Fuel Solenoid the smell went away.
#2301 of 2315 Interchangeable Parts
Jan 30, 2012 (11:46 am)
I have a 2001 Rodeo LS and I'm in need of a passenger window (glass only). There is a 1997 Rodeo at the junkyard. If it has power windows, is it interchangeable? Also need to replace the tailgate. Is that interchangeable, as well?
Looking for any help. Thanks.
