Ok, is the check engine light on steady, or blinking on and off?

Can you describe the noise when accelerating - growling, humming, roaring, etc?

Please remember that I am not there to test drive it or listen to it, so I rely on you to be as specific as possible and provide as much detail as possible

The noise is like a whistle as when an air hose breaks .. sounds when accelerating normally and when a constant speed is maintained and accelerated slowly also feels that whistle ... Also the motor changes sound like when you disconnect a spark plug ocaciones ago as a small explosion ...

Sorry, one more question. I just need to make sure that the check engine light does work. When you turn the key to the on position before starting the vehicle, does the check engine light come on?
