Question about 1998 Plymouth Breeze

1 Answer

I have a 1998 Plymouth Breeze 2.0. The check engine light came on and stayed on. And it started idleing real rough. Someone suggested I disconnect the battery and reconnect it to make the light go out. I did that and the light is off. However it still idles real rough. Its starts out ok but then as it warms up its gets worse and worse. I have replaced the plugs, the pcv valve, and the fuel filter. No change. Any suggestions? Thanks Larry Nickel

    Did any of the plugs look different from the rest? (one black or a different colour or obviously fouled) Did you check all vacuum hoses for connection, cracks etc? Generally, if you have a sudden failure such as this it's associated with a sensor dropping out. Have someone put a code reader on the car and it will likely give you some direction to explore, instead of flailing around! But, you are doing the right thing by checking the basics first... everyone forgets there is an engine buried under all those electronics!

Hi my name is Allen!

When the check engine light is on this means there is a problem somewhere in the powertrain control system, which could be almost anything.

Here is what I need you to do, drive your vehicle to AutoZone or another auto parts store near you and have them pull the codes for you. Then get back to me and let me know what those codes are, and what the scanner say the code means.

We will move further with repair procedure after I know what the code or codes are.

Waiting for your reply!

HI Larry.... Did you ever get the codes scanned? or has the light not come back on. From what you are describing, It sounds like you may have an O2 sensor gone bad but there could also be other problems. If you haven't checked the codes and want to try the O2 sensor, it may be the cause but a code would really help. It will narrow the problem down . Hope this helps . Let me know if you need more info.

Check engine lite stays on

If you disconnect the battery for 1 minute and reconnect it the check engine lite will reset. when you start your vehicle again the lite shouldn't be on unless the problem is still present. If the problem is still there the lite will come on again and you should take it in to a shop and have it diagnosed for engine codes and see what the problem is.
Try disconnecting the battery first though before you go spending great amounts of money on something that was probably just a minor glitch in the computer.

Bets of luck and let me know if this has helped you.
