Never replaced a throttle body in 35 years of working on cars. Here's my advice don't go to autozone to fix your car, they sell parts not smarts. Did they tell you a code # or something. Usually engine performance problems stem from fuel or ignition problems. Does the engine perform ok? Let me know.

Check engine light has gone on, what could be wrong

A check engine light could be illuminated for 100+ different reasons probably, can you describe more about any problems you might be experiencing along with that warning light? Knocking sounds, engine running rough, poor acceleration ect. Also, does the check engine light blink at any point in time? If your vehicle is in operable condition you can take your vehicle to certain part stores such as Autozone that offers free code scans to better diagnose warning codes.

Do you have a check engine light blinking when this problem occurs? I assume you do because if it is missing and sputtering like you say the engine control computer would detect that and turn on the check engine light. Next step is to have the systems fault codes read through the diagnostic port under the dash in front of the driver, Autozone and others does this test for free.

Because I have a bad ground wire on my 1996 mercury cougar xr7 V8. Autozone can't scan the computer to see why the check engine light is on. But they told me if I got on line I could find out what pins or...

ground wire ? well that tell you about that autozone... are you lights working ? is the engine run ? then you have a ground wire. if you have a bad ground wire it will cause you lots of problems for one it will just cut out with no lights etc. or flickering lights. easy to fix a ground wire. replace the earth wire from the battery to the shell of the engine bay. 5 min job. now to your problem is it auto or manual auto if it has this problem with 2 to 3 gear its a sticking solenoid in the auto box... it will need replacing. manual it would be the gear gate warn out and will need replacing. also on a auto you will need to check the speed sensor as this tells the auto box to change gear if it is missing a reading it will be sluggish.

I have a 2000 Jetta TDI and the yellow "check" light stays on all the time. It has been on for several years. Garages can't tell me what is wrong. The car runs fine.

When Check Engine Light ( CEL ) turn on, you need to have the codes read. Some places will read them for FREE. There are some other threads in this Forum that recommend to go to Autozone (or another parts store) where they will provide you a code reading free of charge. Get the exact code (like P0XXX) not just their and post it back here.

In THIS LINK could find additional interesting information about TDI FAQ.

Regarding warning lights:
- if the coolant temp light comes on, shut off the engine ASAP
- if the oil warning light comes on, shut off the engine ASAP
- if a falshign MIL/CEL comes on, shut off the engine ASAP

ASAP means driving to the berm of the highway right now and not waiting for the next exit. But if the MIL/CEL is not flashing, then it's not an urgent indicator.

Its possible that one simple unplug or any bad signal sensor. Are you recently make any mechanical job there?

Keep us updated.

Check engine light showing - was told by dealer that both catylitic convertors need to be replaced

Your check engine light could be coming on for numerious reasons. Your catylitic converters could be clogged, but it could be O2 sensor or something basic like any little sensor cars have now days. I've heard of new cars check engine light come on just because of the gas cap not tight, lol. You can take it to autozone and tell them your light is on and they will run a diagnostic check on it and it will tell you the problem if it's listed on their machine and it's free so it wouldn't hurt to try. But your light has to be on for them to read why, when you go.

Warning light isn't coming on for a few seconds when the car is turned on, is this a problem? Also the warning light comes on periodically, even when the car appears to be running normally, what's wrong?...

I'd go to Autozone and have them read the engine codes. They'll do this for free at most autozone parts places. The codes will indicate what's wrong and you can then decide if you really need to fix it

Engine light on...osd ii unable to read codes...what wrong??

The check engine light will come on for more than just a engine problem but usually something else on the car isn't functioning properly. I had a car with a low fluid level in the transmission that would not read but the check engine light came on.
It is a warning and if it doesn't scan check the rest of the car for what isn't functioning since for sure it is connected.
50% of the time a check engine light comes on it is a loose or bad gas cap. Check that first. The oxygen sensor is next but it will read on your reader.
