Have someone put a code checker on it. Something as simple as a loose gas cap will turn on the check engine light.

Check the gas cap and make sure it is tight. That will sometimes cause the check engine light to come on. If that doesn't solve it, try going to an auto parts store that will check the code for free and find out what is causing it.

2002 Subaru Forester misses/runs poorly with slow acceleration when hot with a/c on especially after running 50-60mph on interstate. Problem is intermittant. Runs fine with excellent acceleration...


I have the same problem. But my check engine light comes on when this occurs. The car runs fine otherwise. The problem manifests when it's hot out and I've been driving for a while with the A/C on. When I stop somewhere (like the supermarket), shop, and get back in my car. It starts fine but when I put it in gear to go, it's extremely sluggish for a few seconds and the check engine light comes on. Then is runs fine but the check engine light remains on. The next day when I start it, the check engine light is not on. Also, I recently had the head gasket replaced. I took it back into the shop the first time the check engine light came on. The mechanic checked it and said everything checks fine. He re-set the light saying to keep an eye on it and bring it back in if the check engine light comes back on. It ran fine for 1.5 weeks and now this problem has started to occur.

Did you find anything out dwbradway? I wish I had a solution for you but I just have the same kind of problem. Any help would be appreciated!

The check engine light comes on but not always then it started appearing more and it doesn't turn on anymore.


Take the vehical to you local autozone store and have them scan the computer for trouble codes, you can start a better diagnosis of why the light was originally on, theres a possibility that the check engine light burned out and thats why its no longer on does the light come on when your ignition is in the on position and the engine is not running?

Cold start no problem. Engine warmed and driven,


I do not think it is the PVC valve. I could be the Idel air control vavle, the tps sensor (throtal postion sensor), and it could also be a vacume leak. Is the check engine light on? if it is then you need to run the codes to get a better idea of where the problem is. if not that does not mean that the computer is not picking up any codes. you should check the codes right after you experince the problem and you should run the koeo test. key on engine on test that will pick up any codes from the sensores while the engine is running. this is all asuming that you have a modern vehical that uses a computer. if your vehical is older and does not have a computer it could be a sticking float in the carb. or a few other posablitlys. What is the make model and year of your vehical ? with this information i will be able to give you a more definate answer

2000 Maxima just replaced 02 sensors & computer reprogrammed. Now engine light on again w/3 diff codes. This is a California car mechanic can not find the place for the speed sensor.Where does it go?...


Hello. I have never heard of a " Catalyic " code before, what was the number designated for that? The speed sensor should be located on the drivers side transaxle housing towards the rear of the housing. How does the vehical run otherwise? These are usualy very excellant cars. Thank you , Quinn
