Question about 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora
The car was sitting for a month (in the winter), and when I went to drive it home, the check engine light started to flash. This would only happen when I accelerated (going up a hill), and would stop when I would let off the gas. Any ideas what might be wrong? I am going to get the codes retrieved tomorrow morning, but I'm just a bit worried because I have to drive it across country this weekend. Thanks for your time.
It's a misfire in cylinder #6. Change the ignition coil pack which is located in the front of the engine. 2,4,6,8 are in the front of the engine.
