Have you got your car scanned?If not,then i advise to get it scanned at car diagnosis you mentioned that engine light gets on/off.So this engine light flashes when the computer(ecu) in the car notices any kind of problem.At car diagnosis center they scan the car and give you the error code as per the error code you will get the exact faulty part which is causing the problem.At its free to get car scanned.Or if in case your regular car mechanics have the car scanning tool then ask them to get it scanned for you.This will help. Thanks.Helpmech.

Engine Malfunction Light...drives at reduced 40kmph

Oh you can drive it, but drive it to the shop and have the EGR(Exhaust Gas Recirculation)valve replaced. That is what's causing your lack of power. It has to work in conjunction with all other emission control systems and once it' goes bad the engine will have no power but seams to work fine otherwise. Change the EGR valve.

I have a 99 intrigue and my ck eng abs trac off and service eng lights all came on while driving? car is running fine

OK, the abs traction control lights are usually turned on when there is a problem sensing speed in any of the 4 wheels of the vehicle.

The speed sensor in the wheel hub or this area may be the culprit.

I'm not sure why the service engine light would go on at the same time, though, unless there's a problem with computer.

I would try to hook the OBD-II computer up to a scanner for ABS Brakes using an Actron Brakescan tool, for instance to try to get plain english descriptions and numerical codes to try to narrow down the problem.

A regular OBD-II Engine Scanner won't tell you about the ABS brake problem, though, but might shed light on the check engine problem.

So you need 2 separate scanners to diagnose the problem.

Good luck on this diagnosis and repair.

Engine Light On

there are over 200 reasons for the check eng light to come on, have a scanner hooked up and see what trouble code is present in the memory, likely causes are MAF sensor or a low fuel pressure condition or engine missfire
