I had the same problem. Your mis-firing. It could be a number of things. I changed everything from spark plugs wires and coil packs. Make sure the neg is disconnected from the battery, that way the computer can reset itself, and the car will start w/o the engine light on.

When climbing hills and the transmission shifts down the service engine light flashes on and off. I also start to lose power as I'm climbing the hill. Whats causing this?


You did not post the year make and model BUT you should not drive the vehicle because when the check engine light flashes, you can cause damage to your engine. You need to get an OBD reader from a chain autoparts store and see what codes are present.

Idal adjustment


The idle is computer controlled and not adjustable. You may have a intake manifold vacuum leak that is the cause of the high idle.

Idalls good give it gas and motor starts shaking like it is out of time and check eng light is on


start by doing a code self test.

insert ignition key into the ignition. then turn the key in the following sequence; off-on, off-on, off-on. ( on is when the dash lights come on, and off is one click back from on) codes will either flash out in pairs of numbers using the check engine light or will display on a digital odometer. write down the codes and google the findings or report back here for futher assistance.

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.

What engine oil is recommended for a GDI Mitsubishi Galant 1996 MODEL?


Engine oil will not cause a problem like that. Your oil prevents wear of internal moving parts. The problem you have seems like a fuel management problem. Have that checked out.
Any good quality 10w 30 oil will work well in most applications. Keep it full and change at regular intervals.
Fuel problems can cause some excess fuel to contaminate engine oil therefore after you get your problem solved, change the oil as a precaution.

Help me pleas my 1990 honda civic hatch back needs help any sugestions


Well first things first if the light flashes on and off now and then this means you are getting a miss fire, i would check or change as necessary your spark plugs, wires, distributor cap / rotor and go from there a badly misfiring engine will run rich and can cause damage to the catalytic converters, and also cause engine damage due to over fueling, please rate this solution and good luck, if the light is steady all the time the same applies but have your car checked for trouble codes and report them back here -Jeff PLEASE RATE !
