goto a sears automotive center,walmart,pepboys or some place like that, they sell OBD 2 code readers for the car, you connect it up to the computer and it will tell you what the code is that is setting the light off on the dash, if it is what you fixed, then you click on the the button to reset the light and you are done... the OBD2 readers can be anywhere from $20 to $40 or so dollars from those places. just get a cheap one cause that will save you a lot of money. but atleast then if the light ever comes on again you can connect the reader up read the code and fix the problem that is causing the check engine light to come on...hope this helps and saves you money

Ok, i would ave the ignition coil pack tested for its operational valve asap if possible. this is either an ignition coil pack issue or, a bad ECM. the ECM controls the ignition timing in this vehicle so, the problem will be there if the crank shaft sensor and cam sensors are ok.
I would pull the trouble codes asap as well. this will help diagnosis this issue correctly. this can be done at a local auto zone or a local mechanics shop as well.

The missing ABS fuse will not set this code as ABS is not part of the emissions system. This code is caused by a leak in the EVAP system. Replacing the fuel cap is probably the cheapest solution if you're lucky. Very rarely will the cap be bad. You'll need to check the entire EVAP system for leaks, loose connections, bad hoses etc. The main problem that will trip this code is the EVAP control solenoid. If after checking the system you find no bad hoses or other obvious leaks you'll need to replace the EVAP solenoid.
The solenoid is located under the car behind the fuel tank on the rear cross member. It looks like a little black boc with an electrical connector and two hoses coming from it. Good luck.

there is a lot of questions here so i will start with the codes P0028 & P0026 both are verable valve timing codes first we should talk about how this system works, the engine is equiped with veriable valve lift units that when oil is pushed into the units they push on the camshaft, basicaly they roll the shafts in there saddles witch changes the lift and duration of the camshaft this is done to maxamise the performance of the engine, basickly alowes the engine to be tuned down at low RPM and load but when there is a demand for power the cames are advanced to give the engine more power. when we see these codes the mose common problem is the engine has not been serviced reguarly and their is gunk built up in the oil passages to the veriable valve units, most of the time changing the oil and adding some addative like marvel mistery oil will fix the problem, if not then you may have to replace the veriable valve lift units.
the skip under load might be the verable valve units advanceing one cam and not the other, this would cause a surge and maybe an engine miss fire, but i would change the spark plugs as will as the oil ( it never hurts to replace the plugs ) but make sure to use what the factory used don't chepen it up spend the few extra dollers to get the right plugs.
the check engine light is the verable valve units.
now the flashing cruse and the TCL these are most likely related, and you should be able to get a code from the BCM that will leed you down the right path, but best guess is a speed sensor is not working, all 4 wheel have to be within 1% of each other or the cruse will not work, and the TC wont work and probly the ABS.
its a lot of info but i hope this helps.

No, there is a problem with the EVAP system. If you have already tightened the gas cap and reset the check engine light with a scanner then your next step is to check for leaks between the fuel tank and the engine, this could be something as simple as a loose fitting at the fuel filter or something much more complex that would require a mechanic to test the entire fuel system.
