I think waht happened was that the EGR valve remained open and did not close properly for that one minute. causing the check engine light to come on. replace the EGR valve . the store should give you the proper one . give him/her make model seroes,and engne size.

Rough idling and engine light flashjng on a 2009 kia berrego


A flashing check engine light means you have a catalyst damaging miss-fire. you will need to get the fault codes pulled so you can see what cylinder/cylinders are causing the problem. Once you have this information a diagnostic path can be determined.

With that many miles, I would expect to find the injector as the issue. But it could also be a sticking valve. Or a valve that has problems opening as the oil gets hot. You may want to do a compression test hot and cold too.

2006 Kia Optima LX V-6 Engine light flashing engine running rough


A flashing check engine light means FIX IT NOW! It probably has a dead cylinder (most likely an igniton issue).Most likely,the PCM has figured out which cylinder it is aand turned off the fuel injector to it.You can get a cheap,basic code scanner(mine was 50 bucks at Harbor Freight Tools,made by Cen-Tech).It can read the code and has a book to tell you what the code means.If you find the cylinder with the misfire and correct the problem,you have to clear the code to restore fuel to that cylinder(this cheap tool does that,too).

A flashing check engine light indicates a cylinder missfire. A evaporative emissions leak (the result of a bad gas cap) wouldn't cause a rough running condition. How many miles are on the vehicle?

Try changing the plugs and wires first of all. If light is cycling on and off it is usually NOT an emission problem and can possibly be damaging if you continue to drive without finding the problem. If the light comes on and stays on, it usually signifies an emissions problem, which should be fixed but is not an immediate problem. However,a cycling check engine light tends to mean you should actually check the engine.

Engine light came on , it runs very rough,shakes, lost pwr


It sounds like an ignition problem. Make sure your battery is good and connections are clean. I would start by replacing the plug wires and spark plugs. This is a good tune up procedure anyway and will increase your mileage some. Clean or change the air filter. The obvious thing is to make sure the oil is new and filled to the correct level, not overfilled. Your engine will love you. I hope this helps.

Very Rough running engine


I think the auto-lite plugs are probably your problem. yes it sounds like mis-firing. That's one of the few times the check engine light flashes. I'd suggest changing the plugs to a NGK plug, that's the ONLY plug we use in our Audi's and VW's (work at a VW/Audi shop). Try that, and it should take care of the rough running, if not, it will probably need coils too.
