Engine check light comes on intermittently when starting and car seems to misfire

Engine check light comes on when starting the car, however it does go out sometimes after a few seconds. During this period the engine appears to misfire and stagger but will clear IF engine check light goes off. The car was Mot'd only a couple of weeks ago and has not been used apart from local shopping a couple of times. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: 02 accent sounds like it wants to turn off while driving

trust the guy who said the other guy was full of it, I doubt it is the timing belt at 72,000 miles, more likely the idle speed control motor needs to be cleaned or a you have a defective MAP or MAF sensor...

SOURCE: I have a high pitched noise which appears to be

Could be several things. WHICH ENGINE?.. 4 cylinder (has three belts, power steering/water pump, alternator & A/C compressor, one tensioner pully A/C compressor), The V6 2.7 (has only one belt, 1 Idler pully and 1 tensioner pully), the V6 3.5 has two belts - A/C/alternator, and power steering - there are two tensioner pullys). Noises can be caused by the belt(s) themselves, pullys, bearings, pully bearings, water pump shaft bearings (or belts/pullys rubbing up against something). Let's not forget that there is also belt(s) behind the Timing Belt cover as well as pullys and bearings associated with the timing system. You could start by removing one accy drive belt at a time (alternator, water pump, compressor, power steering, etc) to see whether or not the noise goes away in each case. If after each case, you discover the noise is still there, it's probably behind the timing belt cover (idler/tensioner pully, water pump shaft bearing, crankshaft bearing, etc.). Good Luck

SOURCE: My check engine light comes on intermittently.

The car should be under warrentee and the dealer should fix it free. Don't try to fix it your self as you'll throw the dealer a loop that will make them take longer to fix it

Change #2 coil with #3 and see if #2 runs good.Now if the code comes up with #3 misfire you know you just need a coil and that is most likely what it is going to be if you go with the odds of causes of a misfire on that engine..

I have a check engine intermittent light with some shaking in the engine also intermittent, also air bag light comes on intermitently.

Something shaking is almost always a cylinder misfiring.
Which is usually a bad plug or wire. But it could also be an intake manifold vacuum leak.

It is missing when i first start it and check

It seems that your intermittent problem could be a cheap fix,and you can try a few things that might fix or eliminate the problem. Since the code pointed to the #1 cylinder misfire, You could change out your spark plugs and spark plug wires as a possible cause. If it doesn't fix it, they were 5-6 years old, and a new set isn't a bad investment. If the problem persists, then you are looking at a ignition coil, coil pack, distributor cap/ rotor,depending on your particular engine. Often if you have an ignition module failing, it will affect all cylinders misfiring, often randomly , so once you change your plugs and wires, have someone clear the check engine light, so if it comes back on ,you can check to see what the new code problem is...I hope you get a cheap fix!

2005 monte carlo seems to run rough / misfire when warm.

Remove your ignition module and take it to a parts house to be tested. This is common behavior for a failing module after it gets warm. Have them check it several times to insure it gets hot during testing.
