Hello, my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. This can happen for any number of reasons. Most of the time it is caused by a sensor that is not reading correctly. What you need to do first since the check engine light is on is have the computer scanned for codes. Most auto parts stores will do this for free. If you can have this done and bring me the codes it will help me to determine the issue.

Thank you for getting those. It sounds like you have codes for two different systems. They may or may not be related. Most of the time this is simply caused by a dirty or failing mass air flow sensor. This is very common. Before any sort of replacement I would remove the mass air flow sensor from the air intake tube and clean it out with mass air flow sensor cleaner. This may take care of it.

If this sensor does not read right then it confuses the computer. When this happens it will affect things like drive ability and shifting. This can also cause the traction control system to act up b

Is it anyway that I can check the sensor to see if it good?
Expert:  Fix_It_Man replied 2 years ago.

If you have an o-scope you can test it. Otherwise I would at the very least clean it.
