The check engine light covers so many basis that it is hard to pinpoint without having it scanned. it can be a spark plug or wire if they havent been done yet. alsothe d.p,f,e sensor is pretty common on those and can cause an errattic running problem. I would get it scanned before buying uneeded parts

Fiat punto 2002 stutters when driven


The amber MiL light, lights on a number of problems. You need to get it sorted, you could miss a serious fault, and cause More damage. Needs to go on a code reader. From past experience with Punto's, the stutter could be a ignition coil fault (quite common) or a spark plug, both will cause the light to come on. Good Luck.

Engine stutters or stalls after a complete stop upon engaging to go forward


You'll need to have someone scan the computer for the codes.
Most auto parts stores will scan for free in hopes of selling you some parts. Once you get the codes you can research them online or in this question.

My Chevy Trl Blazer LS locked up on my wife as she drove my daughter to school. Could not start it and couldn't move anything. Had it towed to shop 20 min later where it started. Ran a diagnostic, but...


Has the check engine light come on at all? If it continues to sputter like that, chances are the engine light will come on eventually after so many drive cycles. Probably going to be either one of the coils going out or spark plug starting to foul. Also could be something as simple as the throttle body being very dirty.

Car turns over but will not start,it had bin stuttering while driveing


This could possibly mean a few things..
1) Flooded engine 2) Spark plugs/wires need to be changed 3) Dirty fuel filter 4) Inoperative / intermittent fuel pump 5) Bad gas in the engine or gunk in the engine
Do you have any lights that come on after you try to start the car (i.e. check engine?)

99 Toyota Corolla multiple misfire problem


This is what you need to do, change the plug wires, because if there is a bad wire you would definitely experiences sputter or a stutter, so do the plug wires and at the same time do the spark plugs, this should take care of your problem. if not let me know and i will give you the next step

Trac off and check engine light for lexus es 300 check engine & trac control off lights & engine stutters while revving in park. Engine seems fine in drive... Reset lights without them returning...


A week ago, on my Lexus ES 300 (2001), "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights came on. This coincided with me filling the gas tank to the brim to round the dollar to be paid. I cleaned the gas tank cap and the tank opening. However, both lights persisted. On the same day, when I turned on the car again, there was a hesitance, a stuttering to come on. Both "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights were still on.

The next day, the car wouldn't come on at all. It sounded as the battery was dead. I couldn't even jump start the car. So, I got a new battery from Costco ($59) and put it in. It took 15-20 seconds of cranking to get the car started. Once it was started, the engine sounded fine and the RPM normal. The "Check Engine" light was off. However, the "Trac Off" was still on. I cleaned the gas tank cap one more time.

The next morning, when I turned the car on, there was no problems. It came on instantly as it used to be, didn't have any warning lights, and drove smoothly.
