You will need to get an OBD reading. to know exactly why the light came on. the light alone doesnt mean anything specific, hence the need for the OBD reading to understand why. Most mechanics will do this reading for free.

Fuel problem possibly, why would a 2001 blazer, at about 2500 rpms, engine doesn't want to run, bogging down. all started when I had the battery replaced, service engine soon light on also.


You can disconnect the neg, batt, cable for 5 min, and this should reset your systems. Let me know if this doesn't work.

Hope this helps Mike

Car sometimes jerks when idle and wont accelerate when this happens


crank sensors fail on these very frequently,causing running issues. if service engine soon light is on, then your mechanic should be able to pull something from computer. sounds to me like he doesn't know what he is doing. get your self a new mechanic. that light doesn't come on just for fun. it comes on to tell you that there is a problem. if a throttle body is an issue, he should have pulled P0507 ICS system. If so, there may be an issue with the throttle body. have seen few with computer issue causing throttle body code, but those are rare. most likely throttle body, but depend on code number.

My service engine light turns on when I am driving on the high way it will stay on until the car is turned off. when i restart it it wont be on but as soon as i drive for 5-10 min it comes back on what...


I would worry about the fuction of ch engine light at this point,,,what you want to know is what is wrong,,,
Goto your local autozone parts store and get the codes scanned for free and they give you a printout of what the codes mean,,,than you know what to buy and they will clear the codes if they ask if you want them to just say yes

Service Engine Soon light comes on


The service engine soon (yellow light) comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system you will seldom feel the car engine run any different, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Falls on Its face 3-5 min of driving


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.
