In order to find out what is wrong, you will need to take the car someplace and have the computer scanned for trouble codes. Auto parts stores like Auto Zone and Oreillys do this for free. Be sure to write the codes down. After you get the codes, use the reply button to get back with me and I will try to help you solve the problem.

The service engine light is blinking rapidly and the engine is running rough


There is a distinct possibility that the oxygen sensor or engine coolant temp sensor have failed.
There is also the possibility that the engine needs a bit of TLC.
How long since its had maintenance servicing?

Runs smooth then runs rough & rough back to smooth running.


If your check engine light comes on get it checked. To me it sounds like an engine misfire probably cause by a coil pack or spark plug wire going bad. The misfire should cause the check engine light to come on maybe even flash if the misfire is bad enough

Have 1999 nissan qust runs fine when started but if you drive very far. it starts chugging and running rough. doesnt seem to get hot. but doesnt run well at all.


First check fuel pressure with engine cold, and hot at engine side of fuel filter. There shouldn't be any difference. If you get a significant pressure drop after running engine until warmed up, replace fuel filter and check results again. If that still doesn't help your fuel pump might be on the blink. This is assuming your car is in good tune(plugs,wires).

Running rough


A blinking or flashing check engine light indicate misfiring. I suggest you check the components of your secondary ignition system especially if it worsens when it's damp.

My 2002 a-6 3.0 suddenly started running rough-engine light is on and blinks at 45mph. runs doggedly


Check oil and coolant levels (at the radiator cap) first. Run fault codes to find which sensor triggered the engine light . The light is to tell you that the engine is in danger of failure so do not dismiss the light as not important.. Hot smells mean that the engine is very hot and you may not have any coolant in the system to activate the temp light or gauge.

Blinking check engine light


its most likely an ignition coil. you are probably getting a spike in the electrical system. my lincoln ls does the same thing sometimes. the check engine light wiill blink for awhile then stop, and eventually it will stay on and run rough. every single time it turned out to be an ignition coil.

Engine light is blinking and it runs very rough/low power in gear.


Check the coil pack. Same symptoms on mine. It went at 74,000.
You can get the resistance specs from a shop manual. I have been told the plastic engine cover traps heat and makes short life of the coil pack. I removed the top engin cover, cosmetic only after replacing mine. You will probably need spark plugs also they are probably fowled by now. If you have not changed spark plug wires in awhile in would not hurt.
