The check engine light comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Hi, my engine light on my ssangyong kyron 2006, comes on and when it does, when i accelarate it goes slower, please help


If the light you are referring to is the check engine light! This generates a code when on, if the light was on then it will hold the code in the memory, if you have had the codes read then they would have been able to access the code.....what is the code? From your description it sounds like your vehicle is going into limp home mode to stop further damage, retrieve the active or saved code and this will tell you where the problem area is!

Check the condition of your tires and suspension. this problem is usually caused by bad component or alignment. Special attention is given to camber and caster.

Can the mass air fow sensor cause hesitation when accelarating?


Yes it could be bad sometimes cleaning it works and sometimes it doesn't. You should wait for the light to come back on and get the code before you buy a MAF sensor as it is expensive. You need to replace your air filter because that is likely that the fibers came off of it. You need to use a high quality stock replacement air filter.

Sounds like your EGR Valve is plugged up or stuck open with a carbon build-up. Try taking it off and check to see if the above is true...if so, unplug and cleanup as good as you can. Re-install and hopefully you'll be good to go!
