Changed the plugs and wires of a 1988 sunbird car now goes from a slow idle to a fast idle . when the fast idle kicks on the check engine light now comes on.Car seem to run fine

Was there a problem before you changed the wires and plugs? Did you buy off the shelf wires or wires sized for you make/model? In order to replace the wires did you disconnect any rubber vacuum lines and forget to replace them?

Just purchased a 94 Sunbird SE for my son (today) Started fine. Drove for 15 minutes. Shut it down and it sat for 1 hr. Started again after registration and insurance. Drove for 10 minutes. Stopped once...

Take it back to where you got it and make them refund your purchase price. If they refuse and you finianced it go to them, There a law called "The Lemon Law" that makes it unlawful to sell something like that. Sounds like you sure bought one. Don't do anything to it just get hold of the place where you bought it and tell them to come get their junk out of your yard! dhgill1949

I have a 1993 pontiac sunbird. the check engine light keeps coming on and going off. i checked oil, transmission fluid...they are fine. what could this be?

If the check engine light is flashing,you have a problem that can damage the converter.If it comes on steady while running it has set a code. You need to get a code reader or have someone with a scanner like your parts store check the coded.If it is flashing while running it may be a miss fire detected and you need to have it scanned before you damage the converters

Engine runs rough after about ten minutes /idles really low

Just trowing some suggestions out there, but, I would check the idle air control valve (solenoid) or the throttle position sensor. If they check out then my last guess would be the map sensor or the vaccuum to the map sensor. Hope I was able to help. Best wishes.

Rough idle and/or stalls while at stop light. Check engine light comes on.

the ignition coil and or the ignition control module is out. you can pull the plug wire to find out wich cylinder it is. Then replace the proper coil. most parts stores can test the module.
