I have a 2004 Stratus that has an intermittent issue while accelerating. The check engine light comes on and the car starts to stutter. If I turn off the engine and turn it back on the engine light remains, but the stuttering stops. About two days later the check engine light goes off, and then the next day it starts all over again. The code for the engine light is the cam sensor, but that has been replaced twice now, the pcv valve has been replace, and the timing belt has also been changed.

The a b s light stays on most of the time,,I did notice recently that when I leave the key on for a few seconds before I start the engine the light goes off and then comes back on for a few seconds when the engine is started and then goes off like it's supposed to and then I know the abs is working properly but that doesn't work all the time,,,I don't think it's a sensor though, could it be the computer ?

The check engine light comes on and off on my 06 stratus. the first time it came on was about 2 months ago. I took it to the shop and they said I had steped on the gas to hard and had forced the vacuum, but that the car did not have any problems. The light was off.

My 91 corsica 4cyl 2.2 has started stalling at traffic lights. Restarts but stalls at next light. After a few restarts it won't start until I leave it for about 10 minutes.

Turns over fast enough but won't fire and I smell gas. I have to wait 20 minutes to an hour before it will start. Taken it to a garage 3 times but they can't find the problem becau

2003 Toyota Corolla oil pressure light flickers then goes to solid after a short period of time. Last time this happened, changed oil and filters and light went away. Now after maybe 1000 miles of driving, symptom is starting up again. Oil level is okay. When I stop the car and turn off the engine, the light goes off and I can drive for a while before it comes back on. Any ideas?

When im sitting at a red light, the check battery light comes on and it will idle really low to the point where it feels like the engine is about to die but it never does, what does this mean? also another question: sometimes when i first start the car up the speedometer shoots back and forth while im driving until i drive about 3-5 miles and it goes back to normal, what does that mean as well?

I have a Toyota Starlet. When I got it the radio displayed SEC, so I entered the code and it worked. However, sometimes after I start the engine, the radio returns to SEC as if the battery were disconected. It works fine if I just turn the key to ACC or even almost all the way to start the engine (i.e. when the dash lights go out and radio goes off), then back. It doesn't do it everytime the engine starts, but a lot of the time.

The car won't start every so often. I reset computer with mechanical and wait till next day for car to start. I think the dealership planted a bug in the computer system. The problem began after the dealer had replaced a bad catalytic converter. Since then the car won't start after so many starts. The next day it will start and the check engine light will be on. Again i reset computer by opening the door with the mechanical key. After three times the lite goes out. And then it seems like you get
