My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help. Would you happen to know what code(s) are stored in the vehicles computer in relation to the check engine light? This would be helpful to me in determining the problem. Most places like Advance Auto and Auto Zone will scan your computer for free and tell you what codes are there

My son is coming over in an hour or so to give me the codes.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My son, just came over. Had same problem this morning. Car would barely move, then take off for about 2 minutes at ever stop sign or light. All lights came on. Stoped the car lights went off except check engine line & car drove fine. Just went out to plug machine in to get reading. Check engine light never came back on. Seems to happen only when car sets for hours on end & is cold. The code my son came up with was O2 sensor.

Does the car shut off completely?

Nope.. feels like it's going to stall out though, but doesn't.

I'm working with very little information so I need to gather as much information from you as possible. Do you notice if the dash lights flicker at all when the car is acting up?
