the check engine light is on and it blinks

Thank you for that information. If the check engine light is blinking, this indicates that the computer on board the vehicle has detected a converter damaging misfire occur. So not only the engine is misfiring, but it may also be in limp mode which will prevent the engine from accelerating. The misfire condition will need to be diagnosed and fixed and the codes in the computer will need to be cleared in order to fix/resolve this condition.

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
