SOURCE: engine light is on ,code P0171, hesitates when start driving

Hi. These are symptoms that represents poor fuel distribution. i recommend changing both the filter and fuel pump in this case. I would also inspect the entire injection system for fouled wiring or damaged housing(injector housings).

IF the spark plugs haven't been inspected or changed in 9 months, i would pull them for a visual inspection as well. replace the wires and plugs if they are not in a proper condition.

Last, i would add a fuel system cleaner to scrub the fuel lines and rid the system of any carbon deposits that may be present in the intake manifold.

Check the Intake manifold gaskets for damage.

There could be a hundred causes for a check engine light. First step is to hook up a computer scan tool and see what codes the computer has. The next step depends on the codes.

My 1991 Toyota Corolla drives fine and then suddenly it starts to hesitate.


mine did the same thing and it was oxygen sensor
since engine light came on there should be an error code
on computer.Get a diagnostic checker or take to a garage and have them hook uo to the diag connector. I bought a diagnostic checker few years ago and it has come in very handy
sure hope this helps!!

Engine hesitation, the trac off light comes and car hesitates.


This is just a shot... Get a Can of "SeaFoam" and pour it into your gas tank with a full tank of gas. Then take it for a "Spirited" drive on the freeway or highway for at least 30 minutes to an hour. (Longer is better) i have had many cars with a little hesitation or sputtering fixed with this awsome product. it is a very powerful cleaner that has chemicals that other brands simply do not have. Conditions should have improved after your 1 hour drive. and will continue to improve as you continue to drive with that treated tank of gas. If the problem persists then you need to get the OBD trouble codes and let it direct you to the failed part. At least you would rule dirt "Out of the Question" (Also read the can for other things that Seafoam can fix on your car and how to use it) also does wonders for a couple cap-fuls in the lawn-mower...Chainsaw....Snowblower...etc i Hope this helps you out... Good Luck!
