Question about 2003 Honda Element

1 Answer

My 03 Element Check Engine light came on as we were getting onto the highway. We were accelerating to highway speed and it sort of "hiccupped" and then the light came on and stayed on. Any thoughts?

You now have an error code in memory. Some auto parts stores will loan you a code reader, or help you with a reader to get that code. It will help greatly in diagnosing the problem. The code reader can also reset the light for you. FYI: misfire is a common fault. Old spark plugs and wires often are the culprit. Best of luck!

The engine falters at low speeds


The flashing engine check light means a code is being stored in the computer. You need to have this code read and this will tell you what system is malfunctioning.

Tune up spark plugs, wires, check fuel filter, etc... Check distributor, change transmission fluid and coolant. If you need a new distributor I would try looking for a used one online.

While merging onto the highway when my car hit 3 and 4th gear the engine seemed to "stutter/misfire" during harder acceleration. Check engine light also flashed briefly during hard acceleration. Dur


Could be a transmission problem or something as simple as bad spark plugs.
The engine is under the most load when RPM is low and you are trying to accelerate, such as when it upshifts.
You should have the computer checked for trouble codes and hopefully that will point you in the right direction to test.
If the spark plugs have more than 50,000 miles of wear you might start with replacing them.

Sounds like you may have a worn out CV joint and the clicking may stop with an oil change. Good Luck
