    check engine only 2 times

    in addition, here i want to emphasis this too.. 1. ordinary place procedure scan -> clean speed sensor n clear codes -> asked to run, if check eng. comes again, asked to replace vss 2. advice by t.p call by tune up mechanic go ahead & replace speed sensor 3. the agent (TL) scan -> clear codes -> asked to run. if comes again, asked to bring for complete wire harness check. at this point, they had come to conclusion that this probably not something to do with the sensor as the nature of the issue is coming. lesson to learn -> ' the steps, procedure etc. of the agent is very professional & it associates their skills.... ' [it should be so in other hand u know ] just my 2 cents....... again hope for the best .....

    check engine only 2 times

    finally the issue went off its own for last 2-3days ....... hope for the best ...... 2 things done to the car b4 the result 1. fixed tire punch of a front wheel which had been for sometime b4 finally decided to check & fixed. 2. google god somewhere said, remove fuel cap & let fuel gas pressure built in to b released itself. did that too 1st one is silly but found the below in google. but think this car model is not that much advanced right? even iCVT equipped. " Low Tire Pressure On some of today's most new vehicles your car monitors your tire pressure. If it gets low your check engine light may come on. This is a great warning as low tire pressure can cause your fuel efficiency to drop by 10 percent or more. "

    check engine only 2 times

    Thnx Rumesh. But y this kinda 'check engine on' appearance. i mean 2 times per day in 1st journey only. if it's something to do with the sensor, shouldn't check engine warns continuously ?

    Power To Weight Ration & Wheel Weight

    hi, does car power to weight ratio take wheel weight in to account? i mean, alloys are claimed to be less weight to steel wheel. doesn't alloying car affect to original manufacture weight-to-power ratio?
