The service engine light stays on. We have repalced sensors several times. Now, when waiting at a stop light for longer periods of time, the motor starts running rough and sometimes dies.

    A trouble code would be a huge help in telling you what step to take next. your local autozone should read the codes off for free.

The problem you describe sounds like what I had a few months ago. Have the trouble code checked at Autozone for free and if you get 172 & 174 then you have isolator bolt problems (The engine is running lean). The fix is to replace the isolator bolts ($7 each) and clean the ports. Should take about an hour or two. Contact me at cmckllar<at>bbtel<dot>com for futher help.

Car quit running at red light


Your no start condition is either lack of fuel(doubtful since it used to restart) or no spark. No spark could be from a failed crankshaft or camshaft sensor.

How can I determine with certainty the cause of a Service Engine Soon light?


Personally I would do a complete engine service, for example Air and Oil filters, Oil and Plugs (it may also be worth changing the coolant as I am not certain of the parameters that are monitored by the system) If the light still remains on then the most likely problem is the Engine Managment Unit or a sensor.

My engine light has appeared on my Honda a few months back, I unplugged the battery and the engine light has reappeared. I got a diagnostic test done at Partsource and the following codes appeared p1336,...


No, I doubt if the spark plugs are the issues. They never fail to fire,they just need repalcing after 60,000 miles of wear.

You have cylinder misfires shown, on several cylinders, as well as crank sensor and cam sensor, codes

You would appear to have timing issues,that effect those sensors.

Most likely your timming belt is worn, and it jumped a couple of teeth

Engine light on


A code P0420 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Leaded fuel was used where unleaded was called for
  • An oxygen sensor is not reading (functioning) properly
  • The engine coolant temperature sensor is not working properly
  • Damaged or leaking exhaust manifold / catalytic converter / exhaust pipe
  • Retarded spark timing
  • The oxygen sensors in front and behind the converter are reporting too similar of readings
  • That should get you going.
