Kia Optima 2002. Diagram of engine has come up on the dashboard display saying check engine, its flickering on and off and the engine sounds like its missing. It has plenty of engine oil?

The "service engine" light will illuminate for many reasons. Was the engine running good before the light was noticed? It could just need a tune-up (Wires/Plugs/Rotor & points). But you could have had a sensor go bad (Oxygen, EGR, etc) The best way to handle it is to read the computer error code.

Many auto parts stores (ie AutoZone, Napa, Advanced Auto, etc) will read the codes for you (for free) and advise you what you should do.

Check engine light stays on

Go to Autozone and have them scan it for free. They'll give you a slip that has the code and possible issues with the car. Many times it'll be an oxygen sensor or catalytic converter. You can try resetting the code and see if it comes back. They can do that through the scanner at Autozone. It's a nice service they provide. Also, check to see if your engine needs to be tuned up. My 2000 Honda Odyssey had a check engine light around 105k and I had the parts to tune up (plugs). After replacing the plugs and resetting the check engine light the check engine light never came back.

My engine light is on, I have a 2002 chrysler sebring

Engine light is usually actuated by oxygen sensor, have it checked and replaced if necessary, if sensor is ok, then you might be running a bit too rich. might be time for a tune up depending on when you had the last one done, reset engine light with scanner.

Check engine light

Your check engine light is on because the computer has detected a problem with the vehicle. Take it to Autozone or Advanced Auto Parts to get your computer scanned. They will do it for free and they will let you know what the code is and what might be needed to fix it.

Service engine light is on, and overdrive light is flashing. what should i do. I have a 2002 F150 SuperCrew

Take it to Autozone or the likes and have it scanned for the codes that are being reported.

Get the actual code numbers ( should be in a Pnnnn format, where n=0 to 9, i.e. P0174 ), not what the guy at Autozone thinks needs to be changed.

With the OD light flashing, could be part of what is going on with the engine, but that is usually a transmission error reporting, something wrong with the solenoids or shift mech in the trans.

Truck drives for over two hours and losses power.. does not turn off or stall and motor does not miss.. this is a 1990 ford f 150 2x4 automatic over drive tranny, 4.9 l engine EFI system

clean your air filter, clean or replace your cap and rotor, basic tune up stuff should help you. that 6 cylinder is reveared by ford guys like my self as being bullet proof, hard to kill, but you gotta keep them tuned up, if you have alot of miles on it, over 200000 which is very common for that engine to achieve then tuning is important for longevity

2002 Kia Spectra Jerking Problem

check engine light comes of when the computer gets a sensor reading out of range. This could be an oxygen sensor(most likely) which will reduce performance of the engineand cause jerking. Most auto parts stores-autozone,advanced auto or O'rieley-will scan computer and tell you which sensor triggered check engine light. good luck

Truck runs like **** and idles rough and has no power running lean on one side and rich on the other

There is a good chance that the O2 sensors are worn out to cause fuel imbalance. If the check engine light is on, take the truck to Autozone or similar business and get a free scan of your computer. (they will be happy to sell you any needed parts) If the truck hasn't been tuned up lately, it may need plugs, plug wires, fuel filter, air cleaner, etc.. The scan should at least show problem areas and maybe specific components. Hope this helps!
