SOURCE: 2000 accent keep getting check en light on codes 300, 303

  • Here are the most common causes of a ,misfire.
  • Base engine mechanical faults (valve train faults, excessive carbon buildup, low compression)
  • Air Intake system is restricted, or there is a restriction in the Exhaust system
  • Fuel pressure problems (fuel pressure is either too low or too high)
  • Faulty fuel injectors (leaking, restricted or dirty fuel injectors)
  • Faults in the Ignition system components and wiring
  • Faults in the Ignition system components and wiring
  • Vehicle driven while low on fuel, or it was run completely out of fuel
The light will flash if the PCM detects a misfire that could result in damage to the Catalytic Converter so driving the car with it flashing could cause more problems.

Hope this helps,

Dave

SOURCE: check engine light was constantly on, now periodic flashing 4x's

Its your pcv and the hose running from your pcv to the top it should have a hissing sound if so follow it and move the hose around make sure hose aint pinched somewhere not allowing air flow.

Run standard misfire tests--pull plug, attach to wire, ground plug threads to engine and crank to observe spark. If spark is absent or weak, try a different plug/wire to narrow down to spark problem.
If spark is good, run compression test on bank to check for bad valve/gasket.
If compression is good, suspect injector.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6715318-causes_gasoline_engine_misfires . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

I have a 1994 Firebird 3.4 that runs rough intermittently when warm.


I can't imagine anything being affected by changing the oil other than the valves in the heads. I assume you have good oil pressure hot or cold. I suppose you could be moving a wiring harness around when you take the oil filter off.
It would depend on if the rough running is mechanical or fuel or ignition related to say what to check first. I would have to figure out which area is affected first.
Something like a sensor or a dead miss on one cylinder could turn the check engine light on, but most fuel and mechanical issues will not do it on a car of that year.
If one of the coils was failing when the engine is hot, changing the oil should have no effect.

OK, if you have a misfire at a high rate of speed and it is intermittent, I wouldn't worry about it unless it makes the engine lose power or affects gas mileage.

If you want the engine to work perfectly, however, I would find out which cylinder is missing, and correct the problem by replacing coil packs or what not until it doesn't do this anymore.

Also, a bad O2 sensor can cause a 'random' mix that may come and go over time.

Service engine soon light is flashing


Have the car scanned for the code's origin. This could mean that the engine will not work as well as it should, and could cause driveability isues.

A constant service engine soon light means that a hard code exists. A flashing light means that an intermittent code exists, but it could become a hard code very quickly.

Tcs light, check engine light flashing and constant shaking..


Use an OBDII scanner, some auto parts stores will do this for you free of charge.
Codes P0300 through P0306 indicate mis-fire and you may also get codes reflecting Cat damage from running that way.
I know of one TL from this series (2000 3.2 TL) which had a warranty REPLACEMENT OF TRANSMISSION!!! free of charge and this very problem was solved. I still do not know why they were related. Talk to Acura customer relations about this.
