For me, after much frustration, I found the problem to be the actual plug that the bulbs went into. The gas cap seal had a wrinkle in it, allowing air into the system. In order to get an accurate reading, the oil must be warm and the vehicle must be on level ground. My advice is to take it do a mechanic to get it checked out in case it is very dangerous. Anyway, new plugs have to be spliced in.
It means something is wrong with the brake system. If nothing leaks out, pour some fluid in until it starts to run out and then replace the plug.

The contact stated that the failure would occur sporadically at various speed and road conditions. Otherwise there would be some type of oil leakage if external. Also, the shifter cable could have came off the transmission making the vehicle only travel to second gear as it would be stuck in low. I drive a lot and have put over 100,000 miles on it.

Now you have a squeeze-bottle making it easy to fill through an inconveniently placed hole in a hard-to-reach place. Either way, you need a read out box to clear codes. I have a handicap son and we use that car since it gets great gas mileage to get to the doctor appointments farther away and I do not want to break down on the freeway with him.
