Is this vehicle a 1996 or newer?My suggestion is have it hooked up to a scanner.The light comes on when the computer senses something wrong.It sounds like a runnability issue. It could be a sensor issue or in need of a tune-up.The computer should store any history of codes,and they can retrieve it with the scanner.

How to set timing for blue print s/b 396

If the engine has been blue printed with different pistons and cam the best way to set the engine time is to loosen the dist so you can turn it and then start the truck and move the dist to the rear until the engine misses or slows and then move the dist forward until the engine smooth's out and runs smooth. Once this is done quickly step on the gas and the engine should respond right now with no hesitation. You can also use this method for a regular engine timing setting.

Mitsubishi diamante 2003, changed two o2 sensors, still hesitates at start specially when warm

there should be 4 sensors in the system two are normal O2 sensors that are located after the cat converter and two are heated sensors HO2S sensors located before the cat converter. Use the special sensor removal/installer tool so that the wires are not damaged . If you only replace d 2 sensors then you may have missed the faulty unit. The check engine light will stay on until you reset it with a scanner

I have a 2002 Nissan Xterra and it dies when the bake is applied. Also as the accelerator is pressed, the car hesitates before moving forward.

I had the same problem so I dismantled my engine and found out both my heads were cracked allowing fluid to enter the combustion chamber therefore foreign fluids were gumming up my pistons causing me to lose power up hills and so forth. If you are a good mechanic replace your heads and your problem will be solved.

Check engine light is on and my car hesitates when accelerating. Sometimes the check engine light will blink (instead of just stay on steadily) during moments of hesitation/acceleration.

When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction. Once you pull/read this code, you may begin diagnosis.

1998 Volve S70. The abs light and the tracs off light stay on all the time. any idea why? the drivers seat automatic button will move the seat backward but not forward. All the memory buttons work and it...

On ABS light most common problem is ABS control module , they failing left and right.
As for the seat adjustment , sound like you need a new seat switch.
