Last night coming home, my check engine began blinking on my 2000 Hyundai Elantra GLS. The engine seemed to get 'jumpy' when i give it gas. When parked it acted jumpy and sluggish like it wanted to die. Anyone know anything about this situation? Could it be spark plugs?
If it has a check engine light the simplest thing to do would probably go to auto zone or advance and ask them to do a code check,its free and will probably tell you the problem and take allot of the guess work out of it.

The Check Engine tells you that something is wrong about
your ride. Get your ride check for error code and take necessary steps to
resolve the issue. Also you can post the error codes so that we can help you to
solve the issue. Battery light lit means that your battery needs to be charged
or the electrolyte in the battery is low. Also it can be possible that the
battery needs replacement. Last the oil light alerts you to change the engine
oil. The engine oil prevents the engine components from wearing due to friction
and suppresses the heat generation keeping the metal parts in proper working
Did the 'Check Engine' Light come ON? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on. You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE and perhaps eventually fix the problem.
