If your engine was misfiring, then your engine light would be flashing.

A solid light can mean anything (but it sounds like a fuel or ignition issue)

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain off. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially go on

Car shakes and jerks


If it was a coil it would read "service engine" after about two weeks of driving. I would replace the motor mounts.

Volvo s40 white smoke and jerking, can it be plug coil problem?


It could be a coil. Or it could be a fuel injector. Also. Record your gas mileage by filling the car up and recording the number of gallons that the gas tank took. Reset the trip odometer and drive as normal. At the next fill record how much fuel again went into the gas tank. divide the gallons of gas at the second fill with the miles driven and that will be your mpg average. If your getting anything lower than 19 it's probably a fuel problem and should be taken to a different mechanic for a second opinion.

Since engine wash yesterday eng.check light come on and today engine is jerking as it reaches 3000revs


Have a air compressor? blow all electrical areas out real good. fuse box, spark plug area (with the spark plug in just pull one spark plug cable off at a time) and next time you wash your engine bay don't do it with the high pressure thingy lol. any water left in areas you missed to get dry or could not get dry should dry up in the next couple of days with the ENGINE HEAT, so drive it!!! just dont drive like a mad men no, V tech for you lol if the engine light stays on after "jerking" goes away. go to auto zone and have them erase the code...GOOD TO GO

Car jerks when put into drive


check the engine/trans mounts. A good way to check yourself is to have someone standing in front of the engine with the hood open obviously, while you shift the tranny to drive or reverse, if your friends see's the engine moving vigorously, it's worn out mounts.
