    Does the light go out after you shut off the car and restart?

This will either be a Throttle Position or Cam Position sensor. Need to put a code reader on it.

How to fix check engine light 90 skylark 2.5 engine ?


If u know of someone who has an old scanner u can easily access the codes. Otherwise u need to jump pins a and b in the doc together with the ignition.on but the motor not running. The check engine light will flash codes. Long flashes are r tens and fast flashes r ones. It will start with 12. One long and then 2 fast. This will sequence 3 times and then go on to more codes. Once u have the codes u can look them up to get to the correct failure area. U may still need a pro to diagnosis it further but u will have a clue to the affected failure. Fyi the 12 is just a distributor code that will show up
since the engine is not running. This is a normal code and should be ignored.

I have a 2005 automatic ponatic gram when check engine flashes and my trac light is onit wont accelerate even when i push the petal down then it will just catch and go alittle faster also when i come


I am assuming you have a Pontiac Grand Am.
You would need to have someone scan the computer for trouble codes to proceed. The codes will point you in the direction of the problem but not tell you what to replace or repair.

2004 buick lasabre, right side turn signal blinking fast.


Check the front turn signal bulbs. This will affect the resistance in the circuit and cause the working light to flash at a much faster rate.

WHAT IS THE COURSE FOR THE ENGINE WARNING LIGHT TO GO ON IN A NISSAN X-TRAIL2,5SE 2005 MODEL


The warning light comes on for a variety of reasons, anything from an ignition problem to vacuum leak. You can take it to your local dealership or auto parts store and they can usually hook up a reader to the computer in your car and read the trouble code which well tell you exactly why the light came on.
If you would like to read the code yourself here is what you do: To check the fault code yourself from the comfort of your own garage, put the ECM in "Diagnostic Test Mode II" by doing the following:

1) Sit your **** in the driver's seat.
2) Turn the ignition key to the ON position and wait three seconds. (Do not start the car.)
3) Fully depress and release the accelerator pedal five times in less than five seconds. (If you've got bad ankles, give up now and drive the car to the dealer.)
4) Wait exactly seven seconds. Fully depress the accelerator pedal and hold it down for about ten seconds until the MIL light begins flashing.
5) Release the accelerator pedal and start counting flashes to obtain the four-digit trouble code. Long flashes (0.6 seconds) indicate the first digit of the code; count the blinks one through nine and write down the first digit. (Ten blinks indicates a zero.) The next three digits follow in turn in the same fashion except with faster blinks (0.3 second) and a 1.0-second pause between digits.

The ECM code repeats intself until you turn the ignition key to the OFF position, at which point the ECM resets itself to standard get-in-and-drive-the-car mode. You can look up the trouble codes in the ESM/FSM; there's a bunch of them. In the ESM, refer to page EC-639. Additionally, if you get four blinks of ten (0000), the ECM is indicating no malfunction.

You can clear the code (and the annoying MIL) by holding down the accelerator pedal for more than 10 seconds while in Diagnostic Test Mode II. When you release the pedal, the ECM erases the trouble code(s).

My check engine light comes on and my car will not accelerate fast and acts like it wants to cut off and sputters. This lasts for a couple of times I start the engine and than goes away and than comes back...


This sounds like a problem with the throttle position sensor. Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for fault codes stored. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. Getting the codes will narrow down the cause of the problem and should eliminate the need for speculation. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
