Hi, due to how the newer cars and trucks are built, the only way to actually find the issue here is to run a diagnostic scan. most of the time when the check engine light illuminates, its because of a bad sensor that is either not connected correctly or it has some sort of internal malfunction that cancels out its signal producing abilities. Example- If the crank sensor becomes unstable, it will cause the ECM to send the code and it will simultaneously shut down the fuel pump as well, rendering the vehicle useless.

Most auto zone stores can preform this diagnostic scan fo a reasonable price. they can pull the code and you can purchase the troubled sensor or part there as well.

Please rate and god bless:)

What does the MIL code "PO 320" mean, please?

code p0320 refers to cam shaft position (CKP) sensor/engine speed (RPM) sensor--circuit malfunction=== causes --wiring--CKP/RPM sensor ---ECM
because the engine runs ok until it is on cruise control I would be investigating the RPM sensor for a fault
The cruise control takes its control from the RPM sensor and if that circuit is interminable the the cruise control doesn't know what rpms to maintain.

Take it to an auto parts store that offers free code scanning first. Might be a simple sensor fix..

The problem is with the spark plug or in the starter . Otherwise the area you are living in may be causing this problem as the engine gets damaged during start up.

Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on. You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE and perhaps eventually fix the problem.

If the fuel pump is not making enough pressure you will have sluggish performance. The onboard diagnostics on modern EFI is very reliable. Ask if the parts are covered under the warranty.
