I have a 2002 Volkswagen Golf with a 2.0 engine. The 'check engine' light starts to blink and the car starts to shake violently, and it doesn't accelerate past about 25km/h. Then after riding it that way for a few minutes, the engline light stops blinking, and just stays on. The car shakes a little bit (not as violent), and the car accelerates past 25km/h but has a hard time doing so. I've taken it to the mechanic and the first time, they replaced the catalytic convereter and the spark plugs.

Couple of questions on a 1997 4 cyl Ford ranger; engine light stays on all the time. Sometimes its blinking nut mainly just stays lit. In addition the O/D off light comes on to let me know its off for no apparent reason. And last yesterday I checked the "fluids" as its running sluggish and the container that holds the radiator fluid was empty-what caused this? Its been 0-32 degrees out. thank you for your help.


First off, the check engine light. If it's flashing, that indicates the engine is misfiring. You should immediately pull over and shut it off - driving while misfiring can cause serious damage. The fact that it stays lit indicates that you have store ... Ford Ranger

I have a 2003 cvp. As I accelerate to get on the freeway, or under severe load, the check engine light blinks. Code was misfire in cylinder 6. A mechanic felt it was not the coil or the spark plug, but the injector. He told me to put cfoam (sp?) in a full gas tank and see if it helps. My gas pump then went out and I replaced it. This AM, I was driving and accelerated hard and the check engine light started to blink. I pulled over, turned the car off and re-started it, but now the check en
