Question about 1986 Plymouth Reliant 4 Door
The engine needs a correct air: gas ratio of 14.6:1 to perform.
You need to check out your Fuel distributor. The engine light is on since there is not a correct mixture then it reports through the Oxygen Sensor.
Other indication is at red light the engine is going to die.
You are losing power since there is not enough combustion efficiency due to incorrect Air gas ratio.

You need to do the on board diagnostics to determine what trouble code(s) it is giving. Here's how: cycle key to On (not start) position, then off, then on again, then off, then on, and leave it in the on position. (leave on after 3rd time on ) Now the check engine light will flash a series of 2 digit numbers, with a pause in between each digit. For example: 2 flashes, pause, then 2 more flashes, would be code 22. 3 flashes, pause, 5 more flashes would be 35. There will also be a little longer pause between the 2 digit codes. You may have more than 1 trouble code, so pay attention and write them down as you go. When you get code 55 ( 5 flashes, pause, 5 more ) that means end of message, or codes. Get back to me with those codes and I will tell you what area the codes are pointing at as a problem. Does the car seem to be experiencing any running problems currently?
