Hi John, I am not sure but it sounds like the 'Fail Safe' has kicked in. When the car is sick or a bit crook it gives you just enough time to get it fixed without blowing it up. Hope that helps Greg.

SOURCE: 1999 Lincoln Town Car (Check Engine Comes On)

you have to get a reading of the on board diagnostic system, Autozone read it for free . then they will print a code for you that will show which part is causing the problem (oxygen sensor or the catalytic converter )

99% of the time this is due to a defective gas gauge sending unit, this is located in the gas tank.

SOURCE: oil around spark plug and car mis fires

The oil around the plug may be a sign that the valve-cover needs a new gasket. Oil on the plugs can cause a misfire but it is important that you check everything over. The misfire could be due to defective wires, boots, coils, spark-plug/s, injector/s, and so much more. Take a look at the cars maintenance history, Maybe it is over due for a complete tune-up or oil change. The car is 11years old, how many miles are on it? How was it running before this?

Why is my engine missing out and engine light on?

Any time your "check engine" light comes on, that means that the onboard computer has detected a problem and has stored a "code". Take your car to your local auto parts store, most will read the code for you. You can use the code to know what the problem is, and likely know how to fix it.

At about 45 miles per hour the overdrive goes in and out once you get past that speed everything is okay.

45 mph is about the speed that the switch is set to engage the overdrive. Typical problem if you know of a good transmission shop they may be able to make adjustments. Unless it is slamming in/out rapidly frequently I would probably ignore the problem.

My 2005 Chryler Town & County 93000 mile is having transmission issues. The trans downshifts erratically-no codes-45-55 miles per hour. my mechanic can't seem to fix it. Thanks for your help.

Try replacing the throttle position sensor. They can get 'noisy' electrically which confuses the computer, yet doesn't set a code for the defect. This sensor is supposed to deliver a smooth transition from near zero DC volts to near +5 volts as the throttle position is increased. Hope this helps!

I have a 1999 wrangler and it tops out at 55 miles per hour but it doesnt mis and runs great around town

Top speed on a wrangler is typically about 15 miles faster than what you are getting. Check the air pressure, air filter, spark plugs and fuel filter. If all of these are good your carbeurator may be partially blocked. Begin with a fuel additive that will clean your carbeurator. I have had success with a product called seafoam which you add to your gas tank at a rate of one ounce per gallon of fuel. Use it for a couple of fuel tanks full of gas.

I have 2000 tow car. just recently change sparks plugs,for wee or two i get good gas miles. around 23, 24 miles per gallon on highway, then all off sudden i start getting 18,19 miles per gallon on highway...

Check the torque on your plugs, should be around 15 - 19 lbs - consult spark plug manufacturer on the torque - if you did not torque them enough, they may have become loose. Also check coil packs - make sure all plug wires are snug.
