That code indicates a misfire was detected. It would have to be pretty consistent to trigger a fault code. Replace the plugs and wires. Afterward, remove the negative battery terminal for 1 min then reconnect. Start the vehicle and see if the code returns. If it does, scan the code again and see if it is the same code. If it is then Get the Haynes Repair manual on your vehicle and go through the troubleshooting steps it list.

Service engine light

repost with codes and you will recieve the help you want... the systems monitered by the light are all directly related to a running engine. turning over slowly could be battery or starter (cold weather does affect battery charges).

2004 Jetta: my check engine light is on in my car im not sure ...

VW's somehow got around disclosing what the check engine lite codes mean to anyone except a VW Dealer. Therefore, to eliminate another service charge from a local repair shop I recommend you take the vehicle to VW and have them scan the vehicle's ECU for codes and do the repair accordingly.

Im buying a 1986 bmw 325e and it has a check engine light im familiar with locations and diagnostics of obd 1 and 2 vehicles but im not sure how and where to pull codes off of this vehicle is there a plug...

You can get hte codes from this BMW by turning the ignition key to the run position and then press the accelerator pedal to the floor 5 times, it will enter the diagnostic mode, count the flashes just like obd 1. Hope this helps, let me know

Wen im driving there is a flat spot in the engine

Did the 'Check Engine' Light come ON? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' (Service Engine Soon) light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on.
You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE the problem and perhaps eventually fix the problem.

Service engine light comes on and car stalls/engine shuts off at light when im stopped..occasionally

If the check/service engine light is on, take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the vehicle's computer for any fault code(s) that are stored there. Most parts stores offer this service free of charge. It will help identify the cause of the problems you have been experiencing. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

Service engine soon light

an oil change will not turn the light off, this light means a fault has occurred in the electronic engine/emission controls, the easiest thing to do is go to any Kragen or Autozone part store and have them run a trouble code test,it is free, then post the code(s) back here on Fixya.
