The car started to...

The car started to hesitate immediately after adding 3/4 tank of 93 shell v-power.i drove for8 miles and put HEET (ISOPROPINAL ALCHOHOL) IN TAKE CAUSE I ASSUMED I GOT BAD GAS.. e\Engine warning lite came on after 3miles. I parked the car for 1 week and the car drove great for 1 mile.,but the engine warning like would not go out. I then disconnected the battery an after the lite was out. I drove the car for 3 more miles and then the wrench lite(limp home) came on. I got home ok but what's probably wrong? thanks.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

The engine warning lite(the shape of a motor) and the limp home lite(shape of a wrench.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 9-3 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No all I put in the t-bird(2004) was dry gas.

Also, do you have a scan tool we could check and see what codes are stored by chance? thank you.

full tank and no scan tool

Alright, I wonder if it's setting misfire codes and it has got water in the tank.

Ask Your Own Ford Question

Are you near a auto parts store by chance? that you could get them to scan for codes? that would give us a better picture as to why the warning lights are coming on.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
