Check engine light meaning

I do not have a manual. The check engine light has come on in two different ways. It came on once blinking and then it has come on and stayed on. What does the blinking on and off mean and what does the solid on mean?

If the check engine lught blinks it usually means you've got a lttle problem. steady could mean a bigger engine or transmission problem. My engine light came on, I had it checked it showed a huge vacuum leak. my gas cap needed replacing end of light.

Check engine light is on and my car hesitates when accelerating. Sometimes the check engine light will blink (instead of just stay on steadily) during moments of hesitation/acceleration.


When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction. Once you pull/read this code, you may begin diagnosis.

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON AND STAYS ON EVERY NOW AND THEN IT WILL FLASH ABOUT 13 TO 15 TIMES I NEVER CATCH IT WHEN IT BEGINS TO BLINK. BUT IT ONLY BLINKS ON THE FREE WAY !


A blinking check engine light means you have a misfire bad enough to harm the emission control devices IE: catalytic converters. Have it scanned at the local auto shop and it will tell you where the problem is so you can repair it. Autozone will scan for free usually.

My check engine light will come on and my car will run rougher if I put in "subatandard" gasoline for too long. If you look in your manual, it will tell you the same thing. The easiest way for me to fix it was to go to a higher-end gas station like Chevron or Shell, fill up my tank with mid-grade or higher and throw in a bottle of good fuel injection cleaner. The manual says that you need to put at least 8 gallons of fuel in for it to make any difference to the sensors. It has always worked for me. The check engine light has turned off either immediately or within a few miles. I hope this helps!

After i had van serviced, check engine light came on


go to any auto parts store and ask them to read the codes and if none
then ask to turn off the lite. if it comes back on in a few miles there is a problem and you need to fix it to keep light off.

Check engine light blinking 10 times


The pcm (powertrain control module ) is telling you it has a set code in the memory. Take the car to a parts place like (auto zone ) and have them to run a scam on the pcm for a trouble code. Once you have done that then you will be able to correct the problem. Hope this will help you.

Cavalier 1996 2.4 motor, change plugs, new coils, control module test OK Misfires will not stay running. Engine light will blink when running. Will not run well enough to drive. Has been avery good runner,...


one of the injectors could be the problem. if the check engine blinks in a continuous mode the fault will have to be pulled from the module, but if it blinks in different series Example: 2 times and then 4 times, it's giving a fault code of 24. A long pause between blinks is a new code or repeat of the same code. these will have to be referenced with a manual, which auto zone could help you with. You can go to the auto zone, advance auto web site and it will help you to narrow the problem down.

Engine light comes on, stays on, doesn't blink,


The last chime is most likely an audible reminder that the check engine light is on. It would be advisable to get the car scanned to see why the light is on. Even if the car seems to be running ok, your fuel economy or emissions could be worse than they should be.
