Have codes read and get back. some parts stores will read ,em for free. the codes will point us in the right direction.
Just remember a code doesn't necessarily mean a part is bad, just where to look and test.

SOURCE: Check Engine Light

It sounds like you may have a failing Mass Air Flow sensor, seems like Ive been seeing these tied together quite often. Its a little tricky but a good repair shop should be able to test this sensor. I dont want to tell you to replace it without having it tested cause they are a bit pricey but check around, you never know. Hope this give youu another idea where to look.

SOURCE: my 2003 chevy cavalier check engine light keeps

go to autoparts store and use their scanner to scan the computer and get the code. you may have to wait until you can catch it back on again. You can try resetting the computer by disconnecting battery for 30 minutes and see if that works first

SOURCE: Check engine light keeps coming on. Lean fuel

A lean code can be caused by several different things. The most common, if you are getting a lean code on BOTH banks, is a dirty Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) Cleaning the MAF usually fixes it.

If not, it could be caused by anything from a crack in a vacuum line to a bad fuel pump. (Anything that could make the engine run lean.)

SOURCE: car hesitates and feels like it is going to stall

you very well could have a short somewhere. I reccommend going to any parts store and having them scan your computer. The computer will give a code and they can decipher it for you and tell you what the problem is.

2002 Subaru Forester misses/runs poorly with slow acceleration when hot with a/c on especially after running 50-60mph on interstate. Problem is intermittant. Runs fine with excellent acceleration...


I have the same problem. But my check engine light comes on when this occurs. The car runs fine otherwise. The problem manifests when it's hot out and I've been driving for a while with the A/C on. When I stop somewhere (like the supermarket), shop, and get back in my car. It starts fine but when I put it in gear to go, it's extremely sluggish for a few seconds and the check engine light comes on. Then is runs fine but the check engine light remains on. The next day when I start it, the check engine light is not on. Also, I recently had the head gasket replaced. I took it back into the shop the first time the check engine light came on. The mechanic checked it and said everything checks fine. He re-set the light saying to keep an eye on it and bring it back in if the check engine light comes back on. It ran fine for 1.5 weeks and now this problem has started to occur.

Did you find anything out dwbradway? I wish I had a solution for you but I just have the same kind of problem. Any help would be appreciated!

Gauges work fine when engine's started, then oil gauge falls below zero and warning light comes on saying "Check gauges," so I check the oil and transmission fluid levels and these are fine but...


start by checking the ground strap to the engine, and engine to body. The oil pressure sender unit may be bad. You may have to hook up an oil pressure gauge to the oil pressure sender port to verify proper oil pressure. Senders are cheap- I would just replace it and go from there.

94 Camry was running fine, suddenly became sluggish


How did you try to obtain the codes? Did you short pins E1 and Te1 in the grey connector under the hood?

When the light comes back on, short the above pins, and get back to us.

Without seeing the codes, I would venbture a guess that you first consider a good tune-up, and use Toyota plugs only. Any other manufacturer will not work very well. I see this every day, new plugs, and the engine runs poor. Toyota plugs fixes it right up. The heat ranges are diffferent in Toyota plugs.

Car driving sluggish, then service engine light comes on


There is no reason to guess. If the check engine light is on, take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any fault codes that are stored there. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. Getting the codes will eliminate speculation and can save you time and money. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Sluggish acceleration traction light comes on


this must be a 2.3 miller cycle. it is going into "limp home" mode. when this happens, it wont rev over about 3k, and tcs off/tcs lites come on. it feels a lot like fuel cut. probably the check engine lite is also on, and what codes are stored? most common is P1525/26 and 1540, which are the solenoids that control the abv. the abv controls boost, and when this valve is not working proplerly, the pcm stops communication with tcm, and it goes limp home. if you can locate the solenoids, they are on the back of the engine, right next to the egr valve. from right to left, you need to look at the second and forth. you need to ohm them when they are hot. normal is around 26. if they are over 30, or 0, they are bad. there are other possibilities, but this is most common

2005 chevy cobalt check engine light


make sure the gas cap is on tight. vapor recovery system depends on the closure of the gas cap. if that did not solve your problem, I would suggest to get a new gas cap first, before going to the dealer or any repair shop for a turn-up.

Check gearbox light, car drives sluggish,heater cuts off.


You have a bad gearbox position sensor located on the transmission. When the transmission computer sees the fault in that sensor it goes into a protective mode in your car starts out in second gear that's why it is sluggish. This is a very common failure on that car. The heater issue is not related.
