Take it buy Auto Zone when the light is on and get them to check the code for you. I don't know why it would do it while cold and not hot.

Runs smooth then runs rough & rough back to smooth running.

If your check engine light comes on get it checked. To me it sounds like an engine misfire probably cause by a coil pack or spark plug wire going bad. The misfire should cause the check engine light to come on maybe even flash if the misfire is bad enough

Temperature needle does not move for awhile and when it does the check engine light comes on but the temperature needle does not read hot and moter does not get hot

When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction. Once you pull/read this code, you may begin diagnosis.

2002 Subaru Forester misses/runs poorly with slow acceleration when hot with a/c on especially after running 50-60mph on interstate. Problem is intermittant. Runs fine with excellent acceleration...

I have the same problem. But my check engine light comes on when this occurs. The car runs fine otherwise. The problem manifests when it's hot out and I've been driving for a while with the A/C on. When I stop somewhere (like the supermarket), shop, and get back in my car. It starts fine but when I put it in gear to go, it's extremely sluggish for a few seconds and the check engine light comes on. Then is runs fine but the check engine light remains on. The next day when I start it, the check engine light is not on. Also, I recently had the head gasket replaced. I took it back into the shop the first time the check engine light came on. The mechanic checked it and said everything checks fine. He re-set the light saying to keep an eye on it and bring it back in if the check engine light comes back on. It ran fine for 1.5 weeks and now this problem has started to occur.

Did you find anything out dwbradway? I wish I had a solution for you but I just have the same kind of problem. Any help would be appreciated!

When its hot outside my car will start but than just turns right off.

it is very hard to tell. but if check engine light is on get it scanned for problem codes then repost . it could be anything from fuel pressure to a bad crank or cam sensor. auto-zone will scan vehicle for free to find the problem codes. a bad coolant tempurature sensor will keep vehicle from starting when cold. get it scanned if check engine light is on. I know that a check engine light will not allways come on if a sensor is failing. so just check it out. have a good day !! on some vehicles the thermostat and radiator pressure cap have an effect on car when its hot out. check out thermostat first.

1990 acura, when it gets hot outside, the check engine light comes on and wont let me start my car. Happens after about 12 hrs of sitting outside. Starts fine in the morning on my way to work, but then...

unfortunately anything could be causing your check engine light to come one. You'll actually need to have it towed to autozone or someplace like that to have the car scanned to determine what is causing the issue
