Hi, my first recommendation would be to take the plugs out and visually inspect each one and check to make sure they are properly gapped, if they look fouled at all i would replace them without hesitation. try throwing a set of NGK plugs in the car to fix the misfires. other than that you may want to look at the wires. good luck joe

2006 PT Cruiser Limited Turbo, check engine light on and flashed various codes. P0882, P0714, P0700, P01603, P0551, P0100 and P0101. Can i do pin test?


Code 100 and 101 are for problems with the Mass air flow meter.
Have you checked it ?
You can pin test the computer but you may need a shop manual to get the wiring diagrams.

Need description of obd drive cycle


This is my drive cycle a generic drive cycle i have used many times over the years and it has never failed me most drive cycles are too specific and impossible to adhere to for most drivers follow these steps exactly 1. make sure all codes are cleared and no check engine light is on 2 make sure the fuel level is between 1/4 and 3/4 full (this is part of the enable criteria for the evap monitor to run ) 3 let vehicle set overnight 4 start engine and let idle until the temp gauge is in the middle (this cold start enables the evap monitor and runs the O2 sensor heater test )5 drive vehicle around town avoid the highway stay at below 50 mph and when stoping at lights remove your foot from the gas and coast from around 50 to about 10mph or less if possible this will run the EGR monitor after about 3 to five miles of this proceed to the highway or freeway and travel over 50 but under 70 mph for about 3 to 5 miles this will run the catalyst test provided the O2 monitors passed if they didnt you will have a check engine light on before this point also i do a coast down on exit ramps (no braking) they make great places to get that EGR to run ONCE YOU START THIS PROCEDURE DO NOT KILL THE ENGINE OR SOME OF THE TEST WILL FAIL TO RUN

Check trans light comes on after a few blocks of driving


Go buy the repair manual for vehicle (about 20 bucks) AND a code reader.(between 50 and 300 bucks. Both specific to your vehicle AND vehicle year. Million reasons for check engine light - but that light is basically saying, "I'm seeing something wrong, so check my vehicle computer for what I'm seeing" and the fact that it goes away or may go away just says the problem may be intermittent or keeps being cleared for some reason, either the problem fixes itself or the computer clears code for some reason, probably the former.

Need more info as to which powertarin you have (V6 or 4 cylinder) They both have their own bugs. Let me know. Oh. and how many miles on it also.
