Getting rid of a check engine light with my chevy cobalt @ 100mph (160kmh) 2.2L
This is a video that I have taken randomly on a bridge just for fun and the funny thing is that at the last second when i stop the video, just before that the check engine light disapear when im rolling at 100mph. I never knew what this check engine light was for but its funny to see how it disapeared.
This cobalt is totally stock with the 145hp 2.2L engine.
Oh no! My check engine light is on. Now what?
Denny will tell you some main reasons the check engine light will go off.
He also explains how to avoid it from happening.
The triangle exclamation light is something to be taken serious. But don't
think that your car is going to blow up. The thing to remember is that your
car is an enclosed system. Check the obvious firsts: doors, gas cap, etc.

If you have the code you can look up what it means here
Sorry about the camera focus on this one, whenever I use my wide angle lens
it tends to do this. Aside from that I have a lot of video shot that I
don't intend to post here because of time constraints, these videos will be
made available at a later date through the EricTheCarGuy website. I used
this video because I didn't have anything else this week that I could use
for the show and I like to do at least one a week if I can. I have lots
more scheduled so stay tuned in the coming weeks.
As for Check Engine Lights they come in all shapes and sizes, sometimes
they are easy to diagnose and others can be a bit more challenging. I plan
to do an entire series on this subject so don't consider this the last time
I will cover this. The point of this video is to familiarize yourself
with the basic hook up of a scan tool to read the codes stored in the on
board computer nothing more, I got a bit carried away with my O2 sensor
explanation and had to cut most of it. Much of what I cut from these will
also be available at a later date as a series of "Tips" that may be made
available on future shows or on DVD depending on the subject.
I hope this video is informative if you have any questions you can post

I enjoy the process of testing theory because you always learn something
new, regardless of the outcome.
Using a spark plug defouler kit, I install a "buffer" in between the
downstream oxygen sensor and the catalytic converter. Quite often,
frustrated car owners get the P0420 code for reasons other than a bad cat.
I have heard of people getting the code just because they removed the
converter and reinstalled it. It can also happen if you run your vehicle
out of gas etc... etc...
It is also common for car owners to get the P0420 code, replace the
converter, and both o2 sensors-- only to have the code come back after 1000
miles or so. This can be a very frustrating, time consuming and of
course-- expensive venture. Here is one way to resolve the issue. Good
luck and have fun!

Resetting a Check Engine Light with your phone! (AKA Torque app for Android)
This is one of my favorite apps. Its called "Torque" and its for the
You have to have a bluetooth OBDII scanner (About 20-30$ on eBay) and this
app will tell you EVERYTHING about your vehicle. Speed, RPMs, MPGs, Avd
MPGs, Coolant Temp, Intake air temp, and probably 30 more.
It also reads Check Engine codes, and you can reset the codes (Turn your
check engine light off) with your phone.
