Question about Cars & Trucks
"CHECK ENGINE" LIGHT COMES ON AND CAR FEELS SLUGGISH THEN THE NEXT ON LIGHT ON AND FEELS FINE
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.

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.

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

Testimonial: "I knew that but thanks for the help. I,m way out in the woods too far to autozone or anywhere else without a good reason forgot about the Batt. reset"
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.)

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.
