    I got my check engine light on and trying to figure out where to start. Put it on computer and it has a fault but can't remember what it said. I put a new ignition coil on it first but it come back on after 3 days. It runs fine but want the light off. Before I put ignition coil on it it was blinking and lost alot of power. After it cooled off it run great again but light is on. Any suggestions?

    Get the engine codes read then post them. Lot of auto parts stores offer free scanning like Advance Auto.

    X2 what is posted above -
    many auto part stores will scan for FREE get codes and post someone will reply.

    FYI a flashing CEL is a priority if not addressed it will get expensive quick as catalytic converter damage is likely.

    Did we mention FREE. Do not purchase anything without posting first
