It is very common for many vehicles to drive nicely with the Check Engine light on. This is why so many people simply ignore the light. (BAD MISTAKE)

The true fact is that the computer is trying to tell you that there is a malfunction in one of the many different systems and/or electrical circuits that are monitored by your onboard computer network. Some of the possible malfunctions are simple and do not require much in the way of diagnosis or repair. Other possible problems are not so easy.

At the very least, you are wasting expensive fuel. The engine computer cannot properly maintain the correct air/fuel ratio when there is a system malfunction and the light is on. At worst, you could be causing severe damage to some very high-priced parts of your car(including the engine and/or transmission and catalytic converters) if you continue to operate it with the light on. Chances are very high that the longer you drive it with the light on, the more expensive it will be to fix it when you do finally fix it.

The only way to find out the nature of the failure is to scan your onboard computer network and retrieve the Diagnostic Test Codes (DTCs) (AKA - Fault Codes) that have been recorded as a result of the malfunction. These codes are then used to identify the correct diagnostic and repair procedures.

Hi.

If problem is only on startup and when idleing, then the problem is likely IAC system, also a vacuum leak will cause the same problem.

If problem is not only on startup and idle, but also when driving, then MAP sensor and EGR system must be checked.

Check also accelerator cable state and setting.

The first thing to do is pulling out the OBDII fault codes stored in the ECM. This is done connecting a code reader to the ECM diagnostic port. The job can be done for a small fee at any local garage, and it is done for free at AutoZone.

The codes will help locating the problem.

About possible faults:

Problem is stalling when idling and during startup, but engine idling fast all the time. Problem not starting at times it is due to the fact that the wrong mixture is being sprayed, this is probably causing flooding and misfire. Since the CEL is on, one of the codes returned is probably misfire.

Check accelerator.

Check IAC system. This is composed by a valve and a solenoid that check and control amount of extra air air when the engine is idling. The IAC valve is located on top of the throttle body.

Check the vacuum system and try cranking with gas tank cap off. Vacuum system is tested using an hand tool gauge onvacuum lines while spraying card cleaner on the hoses (or heating them with a torch). If there is a leak, pressure will go up. A big leak will also do hissing noise, and will often result in a lean code when doing an OBD code scanning.

This kind of symptoms can also be caused by weak wiring to MAP/MAF sensor (MAP in this engine).

If the car also drives very rough and is revving up and down in a weird way, check the EGR valve.

As first thing I would do a code scanning. This car is OBDII. The scan can be done for free at the nearest Autozone, or for a small fee at any garage.

If you get any OBDII code from the scan, report it here, so that we can individuate the possible reason for the problem.

If you repute my solution helpful, then please take some times to accept the solution. Providing good repair tips requires time and skills, and your feedback is important for us.

Regards.

Ginko.

try haynes.com or your local parts store for a Haynes manual.  For around $20 they are frequently as good or better for home mechanic than factory manuals for $100.
