You should have the light scanned, but you most likely have a misfire. You will probably end up replacing spark plugs, wires and/or ignition coils. That is the most common problem for a running rough issue.

Why does Check engine light. Car misses or runs rough during initial warm up but runs smooth after motor temperature increases to normal operating range


If the check engine lite is on, check for applicable trouble codes. Around here some of the national brand autostores will check some codes for free. How long since a tune-up?
The basics for a rough idle, is to check for a leak of some kind, fuel--egr--vacuum, something of that nature.
If a temp issue, check coolant temp sensor.
I don't know year--make--model?

Rough idle. 70000 miles cleaned throttle body charge batter run good for short time then rough idle again


it has to have a code stored for the check engine to light up!

try a different obd2 scanner and plug it in

local autozone, advance auto parts, or aamco transmission shops do this for free

good luck!

2004 trailblazer, after getting gas,check gages lite came on, then turned off. truck running rough and after going over 40 miles per hr, service engine lite flashes.


Sounds like there was water in the gas, which would make the engine run rough, service engine lite might go on. Try adding an octaine additive to gas.

Rough engine idle and check engine light on and engine knock


take it to a dealer unless there is someone that you know that can work on that kind of a car, sounds like the motor is going to have to be rebuilt if there is rod knock

94 j-30 sometimes missing runs rough then 1 hour later runs fine


Check to see if your spark plug wires are not cracked or worn. They would make the engine run rough when cold or damp more often then when the engine drys up when warmed up- just an easy thing to check...

Check engine lite stays on


If you disconnect the battery for 1 minute and reconnect it the check engine lite will reset. when you start your vehicle again the lite shouldn't be on unless the problem is still present. If the problem is still there the lite will come on again and you should take it in to a shop and have it diagnosed for engine codes and see what the problem is.
Try disconnecting the battery first though before you go spending great amounts of money on something that was probably just a minor glitch in the computer.

Bets of luck and let me know if this has helped you.
