I would pull into the closest auto store and have them put OBD scanner on it to know codes before answering that question.

there would have been enough induced voltage flying back through the electrical system to keep the motor running.This is not always a good test.A little bit more explanation would be helpful.Does that check gauge remain on or off while driving normally?When it goes off or on does it do it spasmodically or does it do it until you restart the engine?Regards

When you get a check engine light it means a fault has occurred and a fault code for that is in memory, now you need the fault codes or codes read to see what is going on and then troubleshoot the system.

If you have 25 miles to drive with that serious missfiring going on, I would first try to find a repair shop closer to you. It need not be a Volvo shop. Failing that, I would have it towed. Since the towing distance may be greater than 5 miles, investigate joining a road hazard protection program first (like AAA or others). Once signed up, then have it towed under the new protection. I think you will find it cost effective to do that rather than just calling a tow truck.

I have a 2005 toyota corolla with 44,000 miles the engine light just went on. I know it is time for an oil change, and the car sounds and drives fine, please help


Check that your gas cap is on tight (clicks). Take your car to an auto store and have them read the codes(usually free). They can tell you what the codes mean. You may only need a new oxygen sensor. I have a Mitsubishi that the light regularly turns on in the winter and off in the summer(196,000 miles). Gas mileage is stable. Your car is newer but a road trip may be all it needs to turn off the light.

94 Camry was running fine, suddenly became sluggish


How did you try to obtain the codes? Did you short pins E1 and Te1 in the grey connector under the hood?

When the light comes back on, short the above pins, and get back to us.

Without seeing the codes, I would venbture a guess that you first consider a good tune-up, and use Toyota plugs only. Any other manufacturer will not work very well. I see this every day, new plugs, and the engine runs poor. Toyota plugs fixes it right up. The heat ranges are diffferent in Toyota plugs.

I doubt they did anymore damage but i`ll bet that the engine was damaged from the training going out such as valve guides and seals and carbon build up on plugs ETC.

Your battery is dead, that's why the starter is not starting the engine. Install a new battery or jump the car, if it still doesn't run, lpease repose problem with more details of the status.
