My check engine light is on

I can not find where the computer plug in is on my car. My check engine light is on and i Want to get that checked out so I can fix it but can not find where to put a computer on it. Do you have any idea of where it is? its not visible where ever it is so maybe i have to remove a cover somewhere.

It is behind the 'Ash Tray.' Grab the ash tray and pull it toward you will remove it. Replacing it is just as easy.

Will not start. Fuel pressure ok, new plugs and wires. Turns over, wont start. What to check next?

Check for spark at 1 or more plug wires. If no spark, possible crank sensor/computer/fuse/wiring. Check for injector pulse. Remove 1 injector harness and install test light between the two terminals of the harness and crank engine. Test light should flash if computer/wiring ok. Make sure check engine light comes on when key in on position for bulb check. If no light, look for blown ECM fuse/s

Car won't start 2002 toyata ipsum nothing works apart from lights in side and head light's dash doesn't light up either ?? Any ideas

Start with the basics: Do you have all your fluids at normal levels? Does the engine turn over when you turn the key? Check the voltage on the car battery -- it should be between 12.8 - 14V without load, any lower and your battery may be too flat to start the car. That check engine light means the onboard computer does know something's up. Go get an OBD2 scanner and plug it in, read the code, and work from there.

If your engine is turning over, then the fuel isn't igniting for whatever reason. Check your battery, check your plugs, and check your fuel pump to make sure the engine is getting fuel.

Flashing check engine light

The check engine light is telling the driver the computer has a problem with something that can affect performance or emissions.
The problem is serious when the light is flashing.
You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed.

Po300 code

If the problem isn't fixed the error code will keep returning. You'll need to get the ignition system checked from the spark plugs back over, (plug leads, ignition coil, etc). The injectors might need checking as well.

My check engine light came on then after that the car doesn't accelerate rapid enough...

It could be a sensor. Most likely and commonly unless your fuel filter is plugged. Computer Check/Service engine lights are connected to the computer so any time anything electrical or electronical goes faulty, your check/service engine light will come one. You should have the car's computer hooked up to a code reader or diagnostic scanner which many part stores will test for free. This tester can tell you what's wrong with the car as well as shut off the service engine light.

Check engine light comes on and car idle's and drives with a shudder around 2500 rpms. First time check engine light came on put it on computer and said it was misfiring, so changed plugs and plug wires...

I found this; if it helps.
The injectors need to be cleaned, if an engine is experiencing any of the classic symptoms of dirty injectors, such as lean misfire, rough idle, hesitation and stumbling on light acceleration, a loss of power, and higher hydrocarbon (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions.
Lean misfire may also trigger a misfire code and turn on the Check Engine light on 1996 and newer vehicles with OBD II systems. The code often will be a P0300 random misfire code, or you may find one or more misfire codes for individual cylinders, depending on which injectors are most affected.
