Hi Habitsi1982,
make sure that it's firing on all cylinders....Has any one played around with the firing order of the spark plugs?....I'm not sure what vehicle it is that you have.....If the engine check light comes on, the onboard management computer has picked up a fault....take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan and that will tell you very quickly what the problem really is.

Regards

'97 volvo 960, Orange W-mode arrow blinking, then lost power. What is wrong?


The usual cause of this is a bad PNP switch or gear position sensor.
The "W" is flashing because the transmission control module is stuck in the Winter mode. If you are not familiar with sensor, I suggest you go and have the transmission codes read and reset to begin with and then post back the results.

Replaced o2 sensor (front) Drove car for 1 mile , then engine cut out. Would not restart. Dashboard warning lights were flashing when cranking the engine. No injector pulse. disconnected battery for 2...


Hi R, As the vehicle started after replacing the oxygen sensor I don't believe the two problems are linked. Have your mechanic carry out a diagnostic scan and we'll go on from there. As a matter of interest, why did you replace the oxygen sensor? Regards John

Engine light came on , it runs very rough,shakes, lost pwr


It sounds like an ignition problem. Make sure your battery is good and connections are clean. I would start by replacing the plug wires and spark plugs. This is a good tune up procedure anyway and will increase your mileage some. Clean or change the air filter. The obvious thing is to make sure the oil is new and filled to the correct level, not overfilled. Your engine will love you. I hope this helps.

The flashing is telling you that the engine is mis-firing, the dealer will run a test to determine the cylinder that is mis-firing, chances are it is something simple
