replace the distributer coil. and fuel filters. also your converter may be clogged. a muffler shop repair from 100 and up will help.
depending on last exhaust inspection you may concider doing all.

The light is on for a reason! It sounds like you replaced the parts Advanced told you to buy, is that correct? Don't just change parts, do a proper diagnosis or you're just throwing money away.
Next step, get the codes read (again), look them up here - http://www.check-engine-light.com or post back here.
Without those specific codes (e.g. p0420, p0301, etc.) it could be a whole lot of things! The specific codes will help narrow down where the problem actually lies. For example, with the p0420 code, it's cheaper to replace the rear O2 sensor but usually (95% of the time) the problem is the catalytic converter needs to be replaced.
So get those codes and do some research and diagnosis before replacing anything else. You don't *need* to go to the dealer to get this fixed. They'll likely solve the problem faster though :-)
Good luck, keep us posted!

Testimonial: "You ROCK! Inquiry was for friend who has since put car "down"...dont mind research at all, in fact, it helps me make a better decision. Thank you!"
Check to see if the electric radiator fan works, run the car and turn on the a/c on high to see if the radiator fan comes on. If it doesn't come on then check the fuses and relay to the fan and wire harness to the fan. Check the radiator it self, check the out side to make sure the heat exchange finns are not plugged up with winter mud and dirt, and the inside look clean and corroded or plugged with rust.
If that is ok then change the thermostat and the hose, a soft hose will collapse and restrict the flow of antifreeze. The last cause would be a bad water pump and not pushing the antifreeze as much as it should.
Good luck and hope this helps.

The most likely cause of that symptom is a failing Crakkshaft Position Sensor. It is not hard to fix. It is located in the transmission bell housing just behind the engine block and is held in by a single 10mm bolt. A new sensor should come with a locating "Dot". This is a stick-on piece of thick paper that you stick on the end of the sensor. This sets the proper gap between the sensor and the flywheel. (The flywheel simply knocks it off of the sensor when you start the engine.) To find it on the engine look at the transmission bell housing/engine area and look for the wire that connects to the sensor....It will be the only thing with a wire going into the bell housing. The sensor looks like the picture below. You don't even have to take the bolt all the way out. Just loosen it and slide the sensor mount up off of the bolt.
