Hello, if you still have the engine light on you can take it to Advanced Auto or Auto Zone and they will scan the codes for free. They can clear them also. After they clear them if they come back then write them down and get them to me and I can let you know what may be causing your issue. Also, what is the year make and model? feel free to call once you get the codes if you like 561 615 0103 hope this helps. Regards, -Tim

SOURCE: changed the plugs and wires

Was there a problem before you changed the wires and plugs? Did you buy off the shelf wires or wires sized for you make/model? In order to replace the wires did you disconnect any rubber vacuum lines and forget to replace them?

Check engine light came on at 30,000.00 miles what could it be 2009 sonata

It could be anything. It can be even the simplest of things. You can't really know since your car s still working fine. The check engine is a warning light indicating that an error has been stored from the car s powertrain (engine or transmission sytem) run a scan to know what it is.

2002 Subaru Forester misses/runs poorly with slow acceleration when hot with a/c on especially after running 50-60mph on interstate. Problem is intermittant. Runs fine with excellent acceleration...

I have the same problem. But my check engine light comes on when this occurs. The car runs fine otherwise. The problem manifests when it's hot out and I've been driving for a while with the A/C on. When I stop somewhere (like the supermarket), shop, and get back in my car. It starts fine but when I put it in gear to go, it's extremely sluggish for a few seconds and the check engine light comes on. Then is runs fine but the check engine light remains on. The next day when I start it, the check engine light is not on. Also, I recently had the head gasket replaced. I took it back into the shop the first time the check engine light came on. The mechanic checked it and said everything checks fine. He re-set the light saying to keep an eye on it and bring it back in if the check engine light comes back on. It ran fine for 1.5 weeks and now this problem has started to occur.

Did you find anything out dwbradway? I wish I had a solution for you but I just have the same kind of problem. Any help would be appreciated!

Fast idle

Sounds like your throttle position sensor is bad.
Take it to Auto Zone and ask them to pull any computer codees that may be latched. Not sll codes trigger the check engine light

My 2009 Murano won't start in cold weather after sitting for more then 10 hrs. It attempts to turn over. Started once roadside assistance boosted it. Took it to dealer said there is nothing wrong with it...

Does the starter turn the engine over fast, slow ?
Is it dead after it cranks over a few times ?
I would say you have a bad connection, either positive or negative cable.
Something is loose.
If the battery is fine and has plenty of power to turn the engine over , that is one thing, but if it barely cranks it over and then looses power that is something different.
It sounds to me like there is some kind of intermittent problem with the alternator
You should have a check engine light coming on in your dash.
With this new of vehicle I would tell the dealer to keep the vehicle until they get it fixed and give you a new vehicle to drive until they figure it out.
Please let me know what happens.

Engine idle speed too fast some times. idle speed

Three things to check for:

1) High idle switch is on..*(vehicle thinks AC is running but it isn't.
You can try turning on the AC and see if the engine slows down to confirm this one.

2) Sticking or worn out Idle Air Control or IAC, You might get a check engine light with this might not if it's a mechanical failure.

3) Simplest of all. A vacuum leak. You can get the engine vacuum read while running if you go to a mechanic with a vacuum guage or an OBD 2 ecu code reader. There should be specs on what vacuum levels are normal for you car at idle.

Good luck and be careful!

2009 ford fusion engine light stays on steady

You just have to disconnect the battery for 1/2 hour. then reconnect and drive for 10 miles so computer can relearn your engine again. It may run rough. You should have the key off when refueling because computer sensed a fuel vapor leak during fueling and turned the light on.

Also, you can always drive with a check engine light on. It just means you are not meeting emissions. Do not drive if it's flashing on and off.
