Hello. is there a check engine light on?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Battery is new but had to be jump started. Need to replace the radiator reservoir still.
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 10 months ago.

Ok so you will need to get the codes read. You can have a few issues

  • Failed ignition coil
  • Poor gas quality
  • Bad sensor reading false values
  • Internal engine failure

Also without the codes we can be guessing at the issues and since I am not at the car it's hard to be on the same page. I can definitely help and advise but we need a good starting point.
