You may have a coolant temperature sensor that has gone way out of tolerance. The CTS is a cheap sensor, but arguably one of the most important sensors on the vehicle. It should run you around $10-$15 and only takes a few minutes to change. You'll see it located on the thermostat housing. Keep in mind that you'll have 2 of them. One for the dash gauge and the other for the computer. You want the computer one. (Lots of parts guys get that one wrong! :)

I hope this helps! :)

Try changing the fuel filter. If it's been there awhile it's probably starting to clog and won't be able to flow enough fuel for the heavier demands the car has when going uphill or trying to accelerate hard.

Check trans light comes on after a few blocks of driving


Go buy the repair manual for vehicle (about 20 bucks) AND a code reader.(between 50 and 300 bucks. Both specific to your vehicle AND vehicle year. Million reasons for check engine light - but that light is basically saying, "I'm seeing something wrong, so check my vehicle computer for what I'm seeing" and the fact that it goes away or may go away just says the problem may be intermittent or keeps being cleared for some reason, either the problem fixes itself or the computer clears code for some reason, probably the former.

I just spent a bundle on this, the ABS/brake light is the ABS control module dealer says the module alone in1K plus just for the module , the 4WD not working is a 4WD sensor in the dash sucking me dry for another 200.00 bucks, Good luck and hope this helps.
