I take it the light stays on? You might want to check your air filter, might be stuffed. You can reset the Check engine light by disconnecting the battery while the ignition is in the 'on' position, either negative or positive( I generally go with the positive, feel better about it for some reason) leave disconnected for about a minute, during this time I turn the ignition to 'off'. Reconnect the battery, if the light comes back on, you might want to get it scanned with an OBD and see what error codes it gives you, could be an O2 sensor or anything.

I have 2004 Dodge Dakota. Runs great until it accelerates to about 4k rpms and then the motor spits an sputters. Anyone ever have this problem or know what might cause this? Would appreciate any advice!

Need more information. Is there a check engine light on? First thing I would check is the coil but you should have a check engine light on if that's the problem. Get the codes and it will help you alot on fixing your problem.

My 2004 v6 3.5 litre rodeo has been regularly serviced and maintained and now has 140000 kms on the clock but it has now developed a ticking sound which i thought would be the tappets and or valves but all...

look for obvious signs that the holden dealer did take off rocker covers and check/replaced shims for tappet adjustment you should have shims booked out on receipt if any were done. Alot of them dont do it because its very time consuming and a pain in the **** to do this job. This should have been done at 100,000km service. If the tapping noise is there constantly at idle and approx 1200-1500rpm and gets louder if you stab the throttle at this engine speed its a tappet or other engine noise(big end bearing), if the noise comes in and out at a constant engine speed idle and 1200-1500rpm your valve guides are worn. both of these were common for this engine.

2003 dodge cummins had to start runs great when started. i changed the lift pump/cp3 pump/2 injectors and cam sensor still have starting problems.

does the truck have any active codes, what is the fuel rail pressure getting up to while cranking, why did you replace the 2 injectors, why did you not put all six in? did you do this yourself, did you follow the correct procedure and properly torque everything. these engines are very sensitive to proper torque on fuel components.

Just fueled up 93 octane. drove approx 1/2 mile to work. started the car, check engine light came on and runs extremely rough and stalls. could it be the fuel and how do i check it. 2004 chrysler...

I would suspect the fuel is the problem, most likely water is in the fuel, but get the codes read to see what fault shows up that turned on the check engine light.

How do you get the check engine light to turn off or reset on dodge intrepid 2004?

The light should be scanned first to determine the problem. Most auto parts stores will scan your car for free, and tell you what it is. Some causes are simple, like a loose gas cap, others are sensor related.

In a pinch, you can disconnect your car battery, but that isn't recommended, because it clears the memory on the computer, and all the adjustments the computer has made to make the car run better are lost too.

2004 SX 2.0 (standard) everything turns on except the engine

It sound like the nutral saftey switch their is a swith thats connected to the clutch arm up under the dash. When you push your clutch in it tells the computer that it's okay for the car to start because it knows then knows that the transmission is disengaged and in nuetral for saftey reasons. It's a pain in the but to to sometimes depending on how much room you have to stick your head up under the dash. Get a flashlight and just push the clutch in and out you might hear it click to help you find it. It might be a little box conected to the arm itself or just a simple switch that just pushs in and out. I hoped this helped you out. It would be appreciated if you could rate my answer. Thanks, Good luck MIKE-
