I have the same problem. But my check engine light comes on when this occurs. The car runs fine otherwise. The problem manifests when it's hot out and I've been driving for a while with the A/C on. When I stop somewhere (like the supermarket), shop, and get back in my car. It starts fine but when I put it in gear to go, it's extremely sluggish for a few seconds and the check engine light comes on. Then is runs fine but the check engine light remains on. The next day when I start it, the check engine light is not on. Also, I recently had the head gasket replaced. I took it back into the shop the first time the check engine light came on. The mechanic checked it and said everything checks fine. He re-set the light saying to keep an eye on it and bring it back in if the check engine light comes back on. It ran fine for 1.5 weeks and now this problem has started to occur.
Did you find anything out dwbradway? I wish I had a solution for you but I just have the same kind of problem. Any help would be appreciated!
Well, the engine management system has something wrong. Pull the codes and explore the code(s) given.
Car running fine with the check engine indication is not unusual. Something is wrong, get after it.
Check engine light can be any number of reasons, dirty air filter, need oil change, or more serious engine trouble. The temp gage issue is normal, this is the computer resetting itself. My car the fuel gage and temp gage do this...don't be alarmed. Take it to Advance Auto Parts and they can run a free engine diagnostics test on it to see which error code is tripping your check engine light.
dear friend-filling the tank has nothing to do with the engine light.in order to cancel this light,disconnect the battery and leave for a while.reconnect battery and check light,it should be of,if the same happen again take vehicle to a dealership for a diagnostic report.
The check engine light indicates a problem, many times the car will run fine, or seem to, but u should get the codes read to determine what's wrong, and correct the problem, as it can lead to other troubles. Not sure about parts stores in Australia, but in the US they offer free car checks of trouble codes when the engine light is on. They plug a hand held scan tool into a port under the dash, and 'read' any codes stored in the cars computer. Write down the numbers for your records, and ask them what the codes mean, and how to fix the problem. If u have any questions, post them here w/ the codes for help.
