...if your check engine light is flashing, then you are burning excessive amounts of gas which would indicate a rich condition.
hello firstly the cause of the loss of power and missing this is down to the timing belt it may need to be replaced and set this would cause loss of power ,check your plugs and set them with the proper feeler gauge hope this helps
I have 99 pontiac grand am and is misfiring the is code p0300 I have already changed the spark plugs and the two coils including the ignition coil cover. The car shacks when you turn it on and it smells like gas from the muffler. Also after a while the cadillac converter turns red from it heating up. Can some help me out?
When the light is flashing its indicating a problem that can cause more severe problems and should be diagnosed as soon as possible From what youve indicated it may be a misfire code which will cause catalytic converter problems
if you mean bad gas mileage (and only 77 miles on it) the engine isn't broken in yet, its still tight. it will take time to break it in, and you should see your mileage start to improve. check your intake and air cleaner, could be clogged.
