Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem also probaly because there is something wrong. If you don't have one already, get a Haynes or Chitlens Repair manual. They break down how to fix just about anything on the specified car. This will tell you how to check the ECM, or car computer. You will watch as the system gives you a set of blinking lights that are coded. You then take the number of long and short blinks ie. 4 long and 3 short, and go to the codes in the repair manual. It will tell you what engine part is sending a problem to the ECM, seeing as there are hundreds of different components that can go bad.
also have a mechanic check your turbo.most will tell u that a turbo blows black smoke but can aslso blow white smoke when turbo is malfunctioning

The check engine light is because all check engine light codes are caused by components that affect emissions. It's not actually an engine problem, it's a problem with either your O2 sensor, MAF sensor, fuel/air ratio, pyrometer, or exhaust.

get the fuel and air filters checked, if the're good get the pressure tested. this ethanol **** in our gas causes a number of problems in older vehicles including dissolving rubber hoses in the gas tank. it also causes water to form in your tank and goes bad 2-3 times faster than regular gas. could also be a clogged catalytic converter. never heard of a low fuel intake code, the guy scanning your computer also has to know what he's doing to read it right.

Same the above with my 2000 cherokee sport 6 cyl. Check engine light came on and motor vibrated and ran ROUGH, I checked the exhaust for smoke, oil for anti freeze, both negative. Light started flashing so...


all are very possible but you can go to any chain auto parts to get your codes read especially if your light was flashing this indicates serious trouble once you have the codes its easier to help you but it sounds like a misfire to me meaning bad spark plug,wire or coil.

Indicator light


The light is the check engine light, it tells you there is a problem with the emission system for the engine, you can take it to Kragen auto and they can test it for trouble codes for free, when you have those codes post them here, and I will try to help you figure out the problem. It's ok to drive it.
