Don't use any higher octane fuel than what the manufacturer recommends, that will cause problems with cold starts and other poss issues due to the diff of the fuel burn rate. As far as the check engine light goes there are 100 different things that turn the light on, all are related to faults that have occurred in the electronic control of the engine, emission control system and in some cases the transmission, have the powertrain control module tested for trouble codes, whenever the light comes on one is stored.

1999 Altima stutters, surges and stalls


You will have to figure out if it is a fuel or spark problem to proceed.
Vent in gas tank could be causing the pressure in the tank to cause a loss in pressure to the injectors. Something electrical such as a relay could be failing.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ?

LINCOLN MKX 2008 ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON THEN OFF FOR A FEW DAYS AND COME BACK ON AGAIN..... ANYONE ELSE HAVE THIS SAME PROBLEM? THANKS :)


So many parameters are monitored by the engine light and its system.
From O2 sensors to a misfire to even a gas cap not on correctly.

One cannot troubleshoot if the light if it comes on and back off intermittently.
Once it comes on and stays on can it be checked.

But, just a hunch...try putting in a tank of high test gasoline that has NO alcohol in it.

Check Engine lights are notorious for coming on due to alcohol being burned and that fuels ineffeciency.

Hope this helped...

Car set for 4 days and when I went to drive off it acted like it had bad gas... didn't want to go but it would go... put High test gas & gas Treatment .. was alittle better,,, had fuel filter...


If your vehicle doesn't call for high test fuel ,why use it?
Gas treatment was a waste of money. That does nothing.
Now you have a check light on,go to a repair shop, familiar with your vehicles systems, and have it properly repaired.
Sounds as though you don't understand, the cost of professional auto repairs, and don't care for the hard working people in the auto industry.

check intake manifold air temp sensor and engine coolant sensor...one may be out of range but not enough to turn on dash light. tests and specs can be found in chiltons or haynes, test is done with digital multi-meter.
