There is probably something wrong with your engine. There are a lot of things it could be, though. Go to a mechanic. -=---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SOURCE: 1998 Chevy Cavalier 2.2L: Car hesitates at idle and low speeds.

Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors 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 you need to diagnosed and repaired it. First step is to find out what the codes are that turned on the light. I would guess it is going to be a misfire code. And the head gasket leak, in the corner of the head on the side near the transmission? Common problem with the 2.2L and could be related to the poor idle. I would have the head gasket leak repair very soon before it creates more problems. Let me know if you need any other help.

go to autoparts store and use their scanner to scan the computer and get the code. you may have to wait until you can catch it back on again. You can try resetting the computer by disconnecting battery for 30 minutes and see if that works first

SOURCE: The "low oil pressure -

It could be. The best is just follow your instruction manual on what type the oil should used on your car. But since your car is has the year 2006, it should use specs. API... SL or SM. The viscosity will has range 5W30 -10W40. Again don't get be cheated by the newest oil products, The best oil for your car is the one recommended on your manual in many aspects.

I have 2006 Honda Accord se, engine lite started flashing then permantly on bout 1 1/2 moths. Now won't start but belt still goes round, what could it be?


You drove with a flashing check engine light and then with it on solid. Flashing check engine light means STOP DRIVING and get it fixed. So this sounds like an abused and neglected car to me. Get the trouble codes read that are stored in the computer. Check for good fuel pressure and spark. Fix one or both.

Check engine light is blinking on and off


it indicates a problem and should be investigated immediately
it reports on the engine ( check oil level, water level, charge rate ) and transmission ( check oil level if auto and gear selection process)
have the fault codes run asap to determine if the problem is going to costly or just sensor failure

Check engine light on


When the check engine light flashes this is a class a misfire. If this is a 1999 you have a spark plug or a spark plug wire bad. Get a tune up done and replace plug wires.
