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. When the light starts flashing the computer is telling you to have the vehicle looked at now before other problems happen.

Engine sometimes simply cuts out while driving. After a few minutes it will start again but after driving for some distance it does it again.I replaced the fuel pump and relay and cleaned the tank and fuel...


it's either your losing pressure in your head... check your vacuum... it's causing no pressure in your engine which its losing power causing the belts to idle out of tune..
