SOURCE: Check Engine Light came on while driving. No


Thanks for using FixYa. The check engine light is on because ECM (Control Module) detected a fault with your car's system. ECM has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at. You'll need to get the codes checked from a nearby dealer/mechanic. Please revert with the codes so that I can tell you where exactly the issue is.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

SOURCE: just replaced timing belt, water pump, radiator,

What's the code stored in the engine computer or PCM (ECM)?

That's a good place to start.

What are the possible causes of the check engine light coming on and the engine vibrating heavily, even when it is idling and in gear? the car is a 2002 mitsubishi lancer CE sedan manual

the check engine lite lets you know that the computer senses a problem and saves it as a code in memory and still leaves a code even when the light resets itself so the scanner should be able to retrieve it ---go to an auto store most offer a free scan and have them give you the code ---the code will be your start point towards correcting your problem

Engine lite on--code 304--also reader says-- cylinder 4 misfire--multiple

Could be a spark plug or fuel injector. Replace the spark plug first because it's cheaper. Is the car making any strange noises or doing anything unusual?

Stalling when turn back on

all stalls end in CEL check engine light on. that is normal
but CEL glow. when engine running , means you had a failure, and it stored DTC error codes, so scan it.
lots of causes. huge list.
get a tune up , tops list.

SCAN it to be sure all sensors work. running.
all fuses in car good.
by stalls , i assume the engine stalls and engine RPM is 0 RPM.
the stall cause the whole dash to light up, all the warning lamps come
on (self test) oil , charge , CEL. come on.
what is important is the stall and the cause.

i will tell you the 3 ways.
lost electrical power to engine EFI system (seems not)
bad engine, (lost compression hot)?
bad spark , spark died.?
bad fueling, lost all fueling (starves and stalls or floods and misfires horribly and stalls (black spark plug tips are big time clue)

if non eof the rings a bell.?
get the car serviced.

this car is newer nicer car, you (we) can scan and drive and log data.
allowing faster easy diagnosis.

Using too much fuel

This could be a lot of things. Start with the basics. Since it is dark right now, if the car is in a safe area where there is little lite, raise the hood and start the engine. Do not use a flashlight, but look under the hood where the spark plug wires are and the coil wire. If you see what looks like sparks or a soft glow coming from the wires, they are bad and need to be replaced. Do not attempt to touch the wires as you'll get a bad shock.

I just changed a set on my car and gained 3 mpg.

If that isn't it, look for any loose vacuum hoses under the hood using a light. Clean the airfilter and check the spark plugs themselves to see if they are worn enough to warrant replacement.

Good luck

Car is missing check engine light is on

check your spark plug wires. it sounds like cracked spark plug wire that is arcing. the best way to check this is at night , start engine and look for sparks around the plug wires.
