I'm assuming that you are talking about REDUCED ENGINE POWER LIGHT...

the last month when coming - d87d18c.jpg

This light will come on briefly when the ignition is turned on.

If the reduced engine power light is on, but there is no reduction in performance, proceed to your destination. The performance may be reduced the next time the vehicle is driven. The vehicle may be driven at a reduced speed while the reduced engine power light is on, but acceleration and speed may be reduced.

This and other details can find in the 2006 Pontiac Solstice -Owners Manual in Instrument Panel Section.

If this isn't the waning light that you need solve, tell us more details.

Other way to know what happen there is make one scan to ECU for knowed OBD fault codes, try it.

Hope helps.

    Ths is one warining toa any engine sensor fault; definetly, you need scanning to know what faul code are there; when you have this code number we can send additional details. Sometimes go from O2 sensor at EGR valve and vacuums leaks.

    Keep in touch.

    I read your comment after I posted mine. I am almost certain it's the coolant level indicator light. AP

No. It is not possible for the transmission fluid to do that. You have not stated what symbol is in the yellow light. Does it have a temp symbol inside the yellow light, or anything that indicates oil? There is no way of knowing what it could be without knowing what symbol is in the yellow light. If you can, can you please find out what that light is and let me know? I would appreciate it very much in order to try and determine what could be the cause.

    It looks like a symbol for an engine. AP

  • apoynor Jul 17, 2010

    I haven't heard back after saying that the symbol looked like an engine symbol! AP

  • apoynor Jul 17, 2010

    looks like an engine symbol. Thanks, AP

  • Steve Arceneaux Jul 19, 2010

    Just read your message. You said it looks like an engine. It may be a check engine light...some cars use the symbol of an engine. I take it the oil light does not come on?

  • apoynor Jul 19, 2010

    No sir, It started out only showing up at the bottom of a hill at a stop....then after driving mostly down hill an coming to a stop...Sat. it happened twice on a 15 min. drive home, still at a stop and off when I proceeded. 40,000 miles AP

My Mazda MPV randomly begins to "chug" and act like it will die at a stop. the check engine light comes on. Started about 6 months ago. Seems to happen more when it rains. If I tighten the gas cap it stops...


the gas cap and check engine light thing are related in terms of the EVAP system, or the evaporative emisions system. This is NOT where your surge, or "chug" is coming from. The surge could be coming from a Exhaust Gas Recurculation valve that is starting to bind or "hang up" a bit. DO you notice this happens more at lights, or when coming to a stop? if so it could be an idle air control vavle.

Stops accelerating and check engine light comes on


The check engine light indicates a fault in the engine management systems. Your car has stopped accelerating because it is locked in fail safe mode and normally you should be able to accelerate just enough to limp to the dealer where they wil scan the computer.
Cheers.
