You'll need to pull the codes. There are hundreds of possibilities. With the code(s) you will be able to identify the problem a lot easier. Call around, some parts stores will pull codes for free. Shops will usually have a fee that includes the diagnostic time to figure out the cause of the code and determine the correct repair.

Some common things are loose gas cap or O2 sensor issues but like I said it could be any number of a hundred or so different things.

I Have A 2011 Dodge Nitro An the check engine light will flash and I will loose power on the highway in certain spots. What is the problem??

Your check engine light flashing means that the on-board computer has detected a problem, as a result there is now a Check Engine Light (CEL) code which you can have retrieved using a code scanner. Many auto parts stores will come out to your car and retrieve the code for you for free. Call around and find a parts store to do this, or obviously any mechanic with an OBD-II scanner can do the same thing. Once you have the exact code we can help more.

2008 dodge nitro change oil light how to turn off had oil changed did not go out

Directions are in the book, but you would put the key in and turn it all the way, just don't start engine. Pump gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times slowly, but it has to be with 10 seconds. Turn key off and when you start again, oil changed chime and warning should not be on. If it is, try again.

Day light

turn the headlights on and off until the nitro beeps at you, that means you have manually over ridden the head lights. I own a Chevy S-10, and I can mash the button 5 times and the lights will shut off.
