1996 pontiac sunfire car running rough and engine light on


Hello
When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

Probably the sensor. Hair line crack in sensor can cause the check engine light to come on .When the sensor gets hot it expands and causes a fault reading.

Anyway to read out codes on a 97 sunfire , with out having a scanner ?


As far as I know there is no way to read codes without a scanner ( at least with anything made after '96 ). your best bet is to go to one of the larger autoparts stores (advance, autozone, pep boys, etc..) most of these places have scanners for store use and will scan your car for you as a free service, and will most of the time offer to turn the light off for you if you would like.
