Ask the mechanic that told you what the problem was,
the cost to repair

Why did you not leave it to be resolved?

I guess you have no idea the purpose of a check light or never think to check for codes, to get some idea of the issues

You don't drive around for 2 days let alone 2 months with a check light on, or someday you will damage the car

Gas treatment is a waste of your money

You won't benefit from a few onces of any product in
many gallons of fuel,common sense, or see that in any
manufacturer recommendation ever

SOURCE: 2002 Sable LS 43,000 miles. Check Engine light on again!

without a fault code its impossible to diagnose. try pep boys or aamco or auto zone they will pull the code for you, usually for free. The code will relate to a sensor or area to be fixed. This will save you money and needless parts . post the code or codes so we can help

Hi, this is an issue that concerns the coil pack on your engine. It is malfunctioning. and, i recommend testing to make sure of thsi issue.

Check for dirt, corrosion or damage on the terminals and repair as necessary.

Measure coil primary resistance between ignition coil pin 4 (B+) and pins 1 (coil 2), 2 (coil 3) and 3 (coil 1) .

Resistance should be 0.3-1.0 ohms. If resistance is out of specifications, replace the coil pack. If resistance is within specifications, proceed to secondary windings testing.

Coil 1-cylinders 1 and 5 Coil 3-cylinders 2 and 6 Coil 2-cylinders 3 and 4

Resistance should be 12.8-13.1 kilohms. If secondary resistance is not within specification, replace the coil pack.

You can jump this link below for a good look at a diagram of the coil pack.

My engine has been on for about 2 months and now the light flashes sometimes. I'm getting a tune up this weekend but do you think that will solve the problem?

yes that may solve the problem because their is a reset sensor in the computers main brain that turns off that engine light and it is reset by a computer a mechanic uses.
