When the engine light comes on the computer is probably going into limp home mode.......
Get the computer scanned for codes before anything really bad happens.........
More so if your over the 100000 km mark.

1999 Pontiac Montana 3.4L DTC P0300 Engine light came on and started losing power and making a noise


Well the code is a random miss rather than a specific cylinder.
The noise could be a cam or timing chain problem which would also cause running problems.

My subaru impreza 2.0 turbo AWD engine has cut out 3 time in the last couple of weeks! the engine just dies no warning lights come on and after a while it restarts as if nothing wrong! no unusual noises...


Could be an air flow fault, check all your air pipes for holes or splits and also check the air flow meter and sensor. just clean them up before going any further.

Also check the earth lead from the battery to the slam panel, and to the gearbox make sure all the earths have a good contact to the car body.

Check engine light comes on for several seconds on 1998 Subaru La


if you didnt have the issue with the check eng before then I would take it back for them to reinspect the job. And at least have then put a scanner on it to check why the light is coming on at idle.

Loss of boost and engine check light on


Please have the computer scanned for codes. Autozone or Pepboys will do it task for free. It sounds like it could be related to your fuel sustem or exhaust. But I need more info to be more spesific. Good luck.

Randomly loses power and sometime dies


1st thing to do is have the system tested for the code that caused the check engine light to come, you may also have a fuel pump starting to fail or many other things, the check engine light may be the key. How many wiles on the car?
