Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi! Welcome to JustAnswer. Thanks for coming! I'm Ron Z and I'll be helping you with your question today.
Any engine performance issues like skipping or stalling?
Ok. When the Check Engine light blinks, this is "Random Cylinder Misfire". Which means the on-board computer sees one or more of the cylinders aren't firing correctly, but it doesn't know why... yet. When the light turns solid, the on-board computer now knows the root of the problem. Unfortunately, there are many things that can cause a cylinder misfire; worn spark plugs, a faulty ignition coil, a faulty fuel injector, etc... So, at this point, we'll need the Diagnostic Trouble Codes (aka "P-Codes") scanned from the computer. These p-codes will more accurately point us in the direction of the root of the problem. You can have these p-codes read FREE (except in California) at any local "big chain" part store (ie. AutoZone, PepBoys, Advanced, etc). More commonly here will be plugs, coil or injector.
