If the engine check light is on, that may be anything, a very simple or complicated and costly problem. Sometimes this might be a false alarm, and that can be cleared. First you have to find the code and code explanation. Your local AutoZone can do it for free. After you have to decide to fix what caused the code, or clear it . You can clear the code with a scanner, or disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it. Be aware that in some cars you may not be able to activate the radio, if you do not have the code.

The A service and B service is an oil change and a long list of inspections. Unless the service is covered under warranty, or this is a new car and you want some piece of mind, I suggest only getting the oil change.

I have a 92 tercel that the hc is too high at first it had a reading above 15 then we added an additive to the gas and dropped it to 1.9 which is still failing it needs to be below 1.5 i would like to do...


Has the car triggered any OBD codes (ie check engine light goes on) which would help diagnose the problem?
I do not know a way to do "naturally" (no additives or cleaners).
Regardless....since the fuel additive helped once, an approach is too assume that the engine is just real dirty .... so you might try:
1-Add another batch of fuel additive cleaner
2-Pull the spark plugs and clean them ... they are likely to still have some carbon buildup
3-Put in new air filter
4-Clean the MAF (mass air flow) sensor which is in the air intake (between the air filter and engine). Use a MAF spray cleaner, and a Throttle Body spray cleaner (which also, cleans the iac (idle air control) valve.

2004 Sonata almost stalling and check engine light is on


Cleaning the fuel line was a good idea although it will need time to take effect. Another related problem could be clogged or stuck fuel injectors. Another thing to do is pull the spark plugs. Old or dirty spark plugs also contribute to engine sluggishness. Lastly, bring the car to an autoparts store that features free diagnostic tests. If there are any error codes stored on the car's computer, it would give you an idea where to look for any electrical problems.

Treated gas for moisture. Got high octane additive.


Even a small amount of bad gas can cause your problem.
So the first thing you need to do is remove your fuel tank so you can drain all of the old fuel out,then remove the fuel sending unit and fuel pump assembly thats in your fuel tank and clean the filter screen, after that you can reinstall the fuel tank,replace your fuel filter and I would have a fuel injector sevice done.
Unless you are very skilled in automotive repair, leave this one to a pro.

Sounds Like You May Have A Leaking Head gasket Try Some Fix A Gasket Solution From Your Local Auto Part Store. Also Pick Up Some Fuel Additive For Cleaning Your Injectors You'll See A Total Difference. And You Said Fault Lights Are Flashing Or Arent? In The Case That They Are Try What I Suggested Then Reset The Dash Lights By Unhooking The Battery For A Minute Then Plugging It Back In.
