Engine light flashing on and off, runs rough when accelerated. really runs rough. can;t drive very far afraid it will break down. I live 20 min from the nearest parts store.

Hi Sherri,

A flashing (check) engine light might be due to a direct engine misfire. This may be a Type A misfire due to the flashing engine light. This can be severe and can cause "mechanical damage" to your car. It can ruin your catalytic converter, though you might also want to have your spark plug and spark plug boots checked to see if they should be replaced as well.

It would be best to bring your car to a mechanic and have it checked.

Car overheating and engine light on

well, driving it 30 minutes after it over heated might have cause serious engine damage, warped head, and other bad engine wear, let the engine cool down park it in a level place and check the fluids, if the water has a milky substance in it then you have a bad problem, if the oil is low then check for leaks, check the transmission fluid for proper fluid level and that could stop the hard shifting.

the smoking could be coming from the fluids that leaked out and when they get hot will start smoking, antifreeze residue will smoke for a short time, it might just need to burn off

Flashing upside down arrow/ slow acceleration

This is a common problem of Volvo S40. You can try this trick to turn off the flashing arrow light.

1) Turn off Engine
2) Turn key to "On" position (Not start the engine), you will see the panel light will on
3) Step on the break paddle
4) Shift the gear from "P" to "L" 10 times
5) Turn key to " Off" position
6) Now you can start the engine.
7) If doesn't work, you can repeat the procedure.

Hope this tick help
Good luck

Engine light comes on

yes, if its is the water pumo the light will come on. it can do what you said. it also could be the thermostat, or even a cracked block. its difficult to say. find out what your laws are in your state. you may be able to take to small claims court, if was sold for more that actual value.

2003 VW Jetta TDI Check Engine Light Issue

Try disconnecting the battery (unhook on of the terminals) wait for like 15 mins, hook the terminal once again and start the car. I also own a 2003 Jetta and once my engine light would come on after 2 mins of driving. Disconnecting the battery is like resetting the computer and hopefully the sensor.
