    I have the same problem only worse. Yes the check engine light stays and has for years with never any problems, but now the big problem is that the light is not always coming on and when it does not the car will NOT start. I have had it on a computer twice and it does not give any codes. A mechanic had us replace the crankshaft sensor. That worked for maybe 3 months. The car will not stay started anymore you may drive 1 mile or 20 miles before it quits and will not start back up sometimes for a week at a time. Please share any ideas you may find or have.

There are well over 100 electronic and indirect mechanical faults that turn this light on, go to any Kragen or autozone parts store they will test the system for free, post the code back on fixya for us to look at and we will try and give a remedy.

SOURCE: check engine light

Most check engine light faults are related to a vacuum leak in the system. It could be as simple as a loose gas cap. In my case, and the majority of other S70's, there is a small vacuum hose elbow, located out of sight from the engine manifold and behind the engine thermostat housing, that has deteriorated and is most likely setting the code in your vehicle for a fault. It is not easy to get to and will take some effort to replace. You can go to Autozone and they can read the code for you to see if you're going in the right direction. If it is a gross vacuum leak as determened by the code, then look a the rubber elbows/hoses in the charcoal vapor canistor vacuum circuit. Check out some of the forums such as Mathews or Bay13 for technical inof on the actual repairs.

Was told I need an ignition switch for my 1998 Sebring. The engine light came on and it stopped.


It is doubtful but possible. more info is needed .Does engine crank when turning key? Did vehicle overheat? Did you have any problems before this?

My 1998 sebring is hesitnant when going into gear and now the encine light is blinking and my car makes a banging noise and will bearly go? whats wrong with my car?


Call a tow truck, do not start the car.
A blinking engine light is a sign of severe engine trouble, continued driving may cause engine failure. The banging noise sounds like you may have thrown a piston rod in the engine, this means that it needs to be rebuilt or replaced.

Three problems so far. Check engine light stays


You might try removing the battery connectors for five minutes and replacing back.

If the codes do not disappear, please you might have to get a scanner to do that.

Cheers.
