Question about Cars & Trucks

When I start the van up in the morning I get an engine light that comes on a few seconds later the light starts to blink and the engine starts to run rough and I f I try to drive it b UT runs rough, s

I took it to the dealership th hey said a o2 sensor was bad and the #5 cyl spark plug was bad. They replaced the plug and for the first drive everything was fine, but we turned it off and a couple of hours later when we started it up again the light started blinking again.if we go through the same routine of starting it up and shutting it off 4 or 5 times, it runs fine. What can be the problem?

Battery light came on while driving. 2 hours later I could not start the car.


Sounds like a bad alternator. Boost vehicle and when running disconnect positive on battery, if shuts down probably alternator no good, replace.

Blinking check engine light


its most likely an ignition coil. you are probably getting a spike in the electrical system. my lincoln ls does the same thing sometimes. the check engine light wiill blink for awhile then stop, and eventually it will stay on and run rough. every single time it turned out to be an ignition coil.

I have a 99 dodge grand caravan. Over the weekend the check engine light came on. I stopped at Advanced Auto Parts and had them check it for the code. Nothing came up and the light eventually went off....


The flashing engine light indicates that one or more cylinders are misfiring. If possible take to Advanced again and have them give you the code numbers. If you post the codes in here we may be able to help find a solution to your issue. Would start with basic things first such as inspecting wires and plugs for damage.

Van won't start


sounds like you need a new alternator.the battery light is triggered by the diode trio in the alternator. if the light comes on.99 times out of a 100 you need to have your alternator replaced.have your charging system checked first. most parts stores check them for free.with the engine running it should be around 14.5 volts.
