A flashing check engine light means you have a catalyst damaging miss-fire. you will need to get the fault codes pulled so you can see what cylinder/cylinders are causing the problem. Once you have this information a diagnostic path can be determined.

SOURCE: 1998 Ford E-250. Rough idle/hesitating

Hi, since the check engine light (CEL) is on you need to get the trouble codes read. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. If there isn't one nearby, any shop should be able to read it (for a charge) or you could buy your own code reader.

The code(s) you'll get will be in the format PXXXX like P0171 or similar. Once you have the codes you can look them up here to get a description - http://www.obd-codes.com/trouble_codes/

Or post the codes back here and we'll help you out. The next step is to get those codes though so you know exactly which areas of the engine to concentrate your diagnosis efforts on. Good luck!

SOURCE: 2001 Jaguar XJ8 Idles rough while sitting

o2 sensors often cause a rough idle at stand still. Previously my xj8 had crank case ventilation (pvc valve essentially) issues that caused the check engine w/ restricted performance. I noticed a severe drop in gas mileage as well. Jaguar dealer fixed my problems in a few hours and it was surprisingly cheap. Its worth taking it to advanced or auto zone to see what the computer says. Then decide if you want to shell out for a dealer fix or if you can tackle it yourself. BTW, just to justify myself this is my third jaguar. I have a '94 xj6 with a chevy 350 inside it, previously owned a 95 XJ6 and currently have the xj8. They are wonderful cars if you can put up with their rough times.

SOURCE: 2003 ford f 150 4.6 v8 and the idle went from

have the vehicle scanned for error codes at autozone, its free. Post codes for more help....These engines have issues with the COPs (ignition coils-over-plugs) failing prior to 80k miles. When they fail typical problems are: Sputtering under load/acceleration, rough idle, random misfires, random stalling, light or heavy jerking under load (usually at 15-35mph and 45-65mph)..hopefully this helps!!

I have a 2009 Chevy Silverado 1500 2wd pickup. The check engine light along with the service stabilitrak and traction control lights also came on. It runs rough at idle or low speed. Where do I start?


Have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . If the check engine light starts flashing , park it . The flashing check engine light is telling you there is a catalytic converter damaging miss fire happening . An they can be damaged very easy .

2001 kia sportage engine light flashing, car spuddering and rough idle


Hello, You can get a free scan at Autozone, Advance, or Oreillys. This will read what the "check" light is trying to tell you. All of the symptoms can be something the scanner can read. Check to see if your gascap is tight.
