A check engine light can mean a variety of things. It could be as simple as changing your oil to as complex as sensors needing changing. Most local parts houses will run a free diagnostics check to check why the engine light is on. Once the check is done it will show you what sensors have been triggered. Have your mechanic look this list over and make the best decision based on the information. Usually a check engine light can be a simple fix. Hope this helps, good luck!

I have an 05 Suzuki Forenza that has a flashing check engine light. This started on Tuesday. Had the codes looked up. Car is driving shaky and dash lights are blinking. Any ideas?


fix the anti freeze leak --before you blow a head gasket

what your codes mean

Check Engine Light On, P0300 Random Misfire Code. A random misfire means your engine is misfiring, but that the problem is not isolated to one or two cylinders. It is jumping around in a random way from one cylinder to another. A random misfire code usually means the air/fuel mixture is running lean.

What the P0700 code means. P0700 is set when the PCM detects a malfunction in the transmission control system. This malfunction causes the vehicle to set a Check Engine Light and trigger a failsafe mode. Once the failsafe mode is set it will remain until the fault is repaired or normal operation is detected.

I have 2005 Sunfire and my horn recently will start going on it's own. I'll hear a little clicking and then the horn starts randomly going off I had to remove the fuze for it to stop, how can I fix this?...


I would change the horn relay it is most likely the cuplrit, I will look into the CEL and get back to you, the light icon is telling you that you are running on driving lights. which is normal.

2005 Pontiac Sunfire is missing and lack the power (it wants to gain power but powers down (jumps)


I suspect you needto relace your coil pack. You are probably not running on all 4. the engine will run but only on 2 cylinders.
If missing replace coil pack. they go regularily on the 03/05 F style engines. You should be able to locate a good used one at a wreckers.

05 sunfire--I have loud ticking coming from engine 2.2 eco tech--have taken off valve cover for visional check,noticed nothing broken or abnormal,seems to have plenty of oil up there. Any ideas?...


You can check where it is by using short piece of hose and listening at the other end (like dr's stethescope). I would assume that it is in the valve train system. Hope this helps, Rick
