"Service Engine Soon" light flashing 2001 Nissan Quest

Feels like my engine is stuttering and that it's going to stall on me any minute (it hasn't). Just started doing this today. Manual says it's a signal of an emission system problem. Checked the gas cap is tight. Any easy fixes or do I have to take it in...... agh.

    mine started doing the same thing the other day and the "service engine soon" light started flashing. you really can tell when you come to a stop, when accelerating it hesitates a few seconds until you pick up speed then starts to stutter when you come to a stop.

You may need to take it to a professional. 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. The list of possible codes number in the hundreds. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, or what engine parameter is out of normal range. A technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint cause and the proper repair. He will have the special equipment to check for emission problems. Even if you reset the light, if the underlying problem is not addressed it will come back on.

When the engine runs rough and the light flashes, it is indicating a misfire. If you drive it like that long enough it will foul up the emission control system and the light will stay on solid. You need a tune up and then you may need new O2 Sensors.

Service engine soon, TCS off, SLIP


The oil change wouldn't cause this problem. Just in-case, check the engine oil level.

There are many emission sensors in the car that will make the engine light come ON. Best way to find out what's going on is to have an auto-parts store hook up a engine code reader and tell you what the code means. Most auto-part store will do this for free.

The light "service engine soon" turn on in a nissan quest 2000 I read the manual but i'm not sure about if it is a big problem or not or if Is it a expensive problem ?

The service engine light on is not a big deal. you just aren't meeting emissions right now.

Go to Autozone and have them run a free scan to get fault codes.

Just remember this - do not ever change the knock sensor even if it gives a fault code. It is in the middle of the engine and a waste of $600 for no improvement. It will never affect your engine performance, good or bad.

report back with code here or on Villager- Quest website I gave you.
