Some thing going wrong in vehicle engine department thats why your control module giving you check engine light to let you know you should check the engine. If you able to get the code your self and give the code i can give you better info. If you cannot you should go to service to read that code and solve the problem soon as you can before problem getin worse and worse.

Take the car to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieive any fault code(s) that are stored in the computer. Most parts stores offer this service for free. Getting the code or codes will narrow down the problem or potential problem. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Runs smooth then runs rough & rough back to smooth running.


If your check engine light comes on get it checked. To me it sounds like an engine misfire probably cause by a coil pack or spark plug wire going bad. The misfire should cause the check engine light to come on maybe even flash if the misfire is bad enough

2001 buick lesabre is running slightly hot. i just replaced the thermostat and 2 elbow joints (sorry dont know what their called) and did a complete flush about a month ago


replacing the thermostat is exactly what i would have suggested for your vehicle for the overheating issue. try this,with the engine running at operating temperature,check to insure that the cooling fans coming on when the engines gaining temperature. your cooling fan may be going bad and not coming on when needed,in this case it may be a bad cooling fan sensor,or just a bad cooling fan altogether.with the engine running after you've driven the car until it gets warm,open the hood and look visually at the cooling fan to insure it's running{the engine fan} in front of your radiator. if it's not running {fan} check in the main fuse box under the hood for a bad engine fan relay 1st if no bad relay,then check for a bad engine fan motor.with the key switch in "off"position try to spin the engine fan manually by hand. if it does spin by hand it still may be a bad fan motor. or bad fan sensor.do you have a check engine light on? if so you can have it code read at any auto zone or advance auto for free.this may be of great assistance to you if the check engine light is on. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

Check Engine Light On. Vehicle runs and drives fine.


A vehicle check engine light can come on for a variety of reasons. Many times your vehicle will run perfectly fine even with a sensor that is bad. You still want to get these fixed due to the fact that it can cause lower gas mileage or in time cause problems with your vehicle. If you go to Auto zone they can plug a computer into your car for free and tell you what is bad. Once those problems are fixed the same place can check your vehicle again and clear the check engine light.

Would a bad fuel filter cause the engine light to come on and also make my car run rough


A bad fuel filter can make the engine run rough, but by itself it won't make the check engine light to come on. It may have caused other symptoms and that's what is making the light come on.

When my SLP light comes on, my 2002 Altima will not accelerate. When it goes off the car operates fine but the check engine light stays on. what does the car need if the SLP light comes on from time to...


On many nissan altimas I have found bad ignition coils. Usually one bad one will creat a problem. The slp gets gounded through the ignition coil. When the ignition coil is going bad it shorts out other systems. Go to autozone or use a method to retrieve check engine light. If i knew the code it would be helpful. When the car is running rough disconnect one ignition coil with car off. Restart car. If car runs worse that means that coil is good. repeat process. If you have one coil disconnected and the car runs the same that means that ignition coil is not sending spark to your spark plug therefore creating a misfire and making your car run rough. That check engine light is most like likely linked to your slp light. If you find a bad coil using this teqnique replace it, your car will run better. I would like to know your check engine codes and this will determine problem better. If you have a misfire code or a po1300 code that points towards a bad coil

Check the spark plugs and small air lines throughout the engine compartment. One bad air or vacuum line could easily offset the firing in one or more of the pistons.
