Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

  • WORK TIME, I am here 7 days a week but not all hours of the day, do not worry I will respond.
  • FEES, I am user of the website like you, not an employee. Any fee or account questions need to be addressed to the website.
  • PHONE CALLS, I will never offer nor ask you to pay more for a call, calls and memberships are pushed by the website..
  • UPLOADED LINKS, if I upload dropbox links, without the phone app use the box in the top right for direct download.
  • RATING ANSWERS, please let me know what you need from me so you are pleased with my answer.

The check engine light flashing means the computer has detected an ignition misfire is occurring. A scan tool will be needed to see which codes are stored and which cylinders are affected. The likely issue here is an ignition coil that is weak and not working optimum.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

When the car sits for a few hours and I turn it on and start driving all looks normal for about 30min then the check system comes on again

Thanks for the extra details. Once you can get a scan tool connected. We will then know much more on the exact repairs needed.
