Dont drive a car with the light flashing. A flashing check engine light means that something is really wrong and you can damage the engine if you drive it.

The check engine light is not a big cause for concern. Most of the time it relates to emmision controls or engine controls, but it will not die on you from one of these conditions. Simply get a auto parts store to pull the code for you and find out what is causing the light to come on. I know Autozone pulls codes for free, once you find out what is tripping the light we can go from there on fixing it. If you do manage to reset the light if the problem is still there the light will return. What happened earlier was the cars computer reseting and relearning the idle speed.

Engine check light is on always now when engine is running,how ever car runs fine.car has a 170,000 miles on engine.


Any time you have a check light or any other lights. You have a possible system failure,and need to have it checked for a possible code,then diagnosed and repaired.

If you have inspection in your state,it will fail

Not to be hurtfull,but,these sort of lights have been on most all vehicles for 30 years.
There is no reason, anyone owning a vehicle, shouldn't have an owners manual,and be aware of the vehicles operation,as far as check lights.

This was brought about 30 years ago,in the US at least,as part of a program, to reduce exhaust emissions.

If you hear air in the engine, there must be a leak somewhere.
Check all the vaccum hoses for bad ones or dissconnected ones. All it takes is a pin hole in these darn emission systems to screw up the whole system.
It could also be a leaking intake manifold gasket.

06' Ford Explorer engine light wont go off after repair


Yes, that sounds correct to be calibrated.and probably is what is causing your problem. Mass air flow sensors hardly ever go bad. They get dirty and set a code. Garages will try to sell you one when you can clean it with a throttle body cleaner. If you have your old one, clean it and put it back on, try it to see if it works better.
