rodeo: cylinder..wheel drive..My Engine light and trans light came

Customer Question

I have a 2000 Iszo rodeo 6 cylinderXXXXX My Engine light and trans light came on at the same time. Pulled over and found it needed motor oil.Added oil. Reset engine light but trans light stayed on. Went about 5 miles and engine light came on again. It's my son's car. He's camping 60 miles away can he hurt anything by driving it back? Seems like everything is good no noise or anthing.

hi there my name is don i will try to help you on this

how l;ow on oil were you when you topped it up
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Pretty empty. It took 4 quarts
Expert:  Don replied 6 years ago.
hi there
if you had to put that many quarts in the damage would be done already and you would have a knock developing
if you do not have this then you might have caught it in time
and no worries

just keep an eye on oil and temperature gages
hope this helps
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

There was no knocking. So I'm good there. The transmission light and engine light are still on. I reset engine light but came back on. Transmission light is also on. Any idea why these lights are still on?

hi there thanks for that great information

there might still be a active code you will need a ob11 scanner
it could be that you need a new oil filter change as well

you will have to scan to see what the codes are the transmission could be low oil

but until you scan it will be hard to guess

since everything is working fine that is the only way
hope this helps you
