The check engine light is an indication that the computer has detected a fault in one of the car's systems. Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for fault codes. The codes will show what faults the computer has identified. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. This will help narrow down the cause of your problem and help you make a determination on how you want to proceed. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Where is the daihatsu terios vehicle speed sensor located

Check tps (Throttle position sensor) to see that it is functioning right. I also had a car that the air flow sensor caused it to stall and loose RPMs. You can buy a spray to clean the air flow sensor.
Hope this helps

Dash lights on my 2010 venza won't go off when driving on dash

are there some that do go off, ????
the ENGINE light glows when there are engines problems
you scan the PCM and it reports errors, YOU HAVE ERRORs, scan it.
the brakes come on, if engine stalls. or RPM on engine falls real low
about 300 RPM the engine can stall, (engine problems) and when it does that the dash goes to self test of dash lamps.
turn key, no start, see all those lamps doing there self test? bingo that.
if engine RPM are normal and the brake lamp comes on,, all this is in the lost operators guide int he glove box.
Brakes failure or hand brake is left on, it says that clearly and is true.

check the vacuum lines on the engine.sometimes these will crack or develop a small hole or break and it will **** too much air in the engine causing it to act that way.

95 dakota dies when warmed up

yes it can but you may have a coolant temp sensor acting up which causes the computer to open the injectors to much which can also cause this 02 sensor code. when it stalls do u have spark and fuel pressure.

Hi, 96 vs v6 commodore.when changing between park & reverse car revs drop down as if going to stall but doesnt,and same for putting it in drive.I have changed the I.A.C motor problem still there

Look for vacuum leaks had a similiar problem in my car. a small split in a hose can cause havoc, and is usually only noticeable at low revs, like changing gears in an auto and sitting at a set of traffic lights.

It can be a long process checking all the hoses but it will give you a good look round the engine.
