SOURCE: When the car is idle

what happened is that when they took of the corroded cable then reconnected it , the ECM (computer reprogramed itself. then it started back up because the problem was not resolved. try this suggestion.
The problem may be a buildup of carbon or fuel varnish deposits in the idle speed control valve (also called the idle air control valve or IAC valve). The cure for this condition is to clean the valve with some aerosol throttle cleaner or engine top cleaner. disconnect the air ductwork from the throttle body. Start the car and run at about 1500 rpms spray the cleaner directly into the throat of the throttle body. Turn off the engine and let sit for a few minutes. Then repeat the process a couple of times. if that does not work, you can remove the IAC and clean it by spraying into the two holes on the underside of the valve. If not, then you need to replace the valve.

Only way to know whats going on is to retrieve the trouble code for the check engine light by using a OBD II diagnostic's tool, it's likely the poor hesitation in the vehicle's acceleration is causing the check engine light to appear, the OBD II diagnostic tool plugs into a data link connector under the driver's side dash, you can buy one at most auto parts store's, or if you don't want to buy one some auto parts store's will do a autoscan of your vehicle at no cost.

SOURCE: Engine Light

Hi, due to how the newer cars and trucks are built, the only way to actually find the issue here is to run a diagnostic scan. most of the time when the check engine light illuminates, its because of a bad sensor that is either not connected correctly or it has some sort of internal malfunction that cancels out its signal producing abilities. Example- If the crank sensor becomes unstable, it will cause the ECM to send the code and it will simultaneously shut down the fuel pump as well, rendering the vehicle useless.

Most auto zone stores can preform this diagnostic scan fo a reasonable price. they can pull the code and you can purchase the troubled sensor or part there as well.

Please rate and god bless:)

SOURCE: Random check engine light appears on acceleration and then off

Take the car to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool and retrieve the fault code(s) from the computer. Most parts stores will do this for free. The fault codes should narrow down what the problem or potential problem may be. Hope this helped and best wishes.

SOURCE: after check engine light on

I had a misfire problem with my 2004 mazda 6. mine was the V6 and it was the #5 that was misfiring. i cant imagine what the loss of power feels like if the #1 is misfiring, but i replaced my ignition coil. I cant be too sure what the 4 cyl engine block looks like, but if you have the v6, its gonna take some time to replace because youll have to remove the air intake manifold thing on top of the engine block to get to the #1, #2, #3 pistons.
good luck!

Engine management light on car runs fine

Service engine soon or check engine light? Engine light needs scanned for codes. Service engine soon is for oil changes and such. To get rid of service lights, turn the key on, press the gas pedal three times within five seconds. The light will flash. turn the key off. it's reset. At least check or change the oil and filter though.

Everytime we stop at light the oil light comes on then turns off as soon as gas pedal is pressed

The oil lights come on because there isn't enough oil pressure in the engine... When you come to a red light, the engine is at idle in a lower rpm and there isn't enought oil in your engine to cycle, thus creating low pressure, and the indicator comes on, however when you rev your engine or press the gas pedal, the remaining oil that you have in your engine is being cylce because of higher rpm, thus bypassing the oil sensor. Solution to this, is you need to add oil to the apropriate oil level AS SOON AS POSSIBLE or get a oil change before driving this car any longer as major mechanical issue may occur if you do not get this taken care of. You can buy a quart of oil at walmart or your local gas station and add it and get you by until you get it to the gas station. You may want to constantly keep a eye on the oil level as maybe your engine is burning oil, in order to avoid engine break down.

Check Engine light goes on and off

run a trouble code test to see what part is causing the check engine light to flash. I would lay my money on an O2 sensor.

Fuel System

is your check engine light on? you may have a missfire meaning either a bad plug, plug wire or coil pack. if the engine light is not on, you may want to try changing your fuel filter, or possibly your fuel pump filters/ the pump its self.
