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

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.

I have a 2000 Volvo S40. A few days ago it began automatically accelerating while driving. I took my foot off the gas and the car took off as the tach got close to 4000 rpm I shifted into neutral and pulled over. I had to shut the engine off. The car would not restart. I let it cool down and after a few hours I was able to drive it home. This just started happening and the check engine light is on.

My car would shake when at a stop and almost turn off. The belts would make an awful noise. I took it into the shop and they changed my spark plugs and the connector wires, and they replaced all three of my belts. One the drive home the car did the same exact thing but worse, it wouldn't let me go over 25 miles and the light started to blink. I took it back in and they said it was my alternator and battery, both got replaced and now the light is back on. Don't really want to push the gas too muc

My 2002 Pontiac Montana had been parked outside in 20 degree weather for 3 days. I drove it without letting it warm up very much and as I was accelerating to pull onto the highway, it started jerking and the engine started knocking very heavily. It was like there was a clog in the gas line or like a car does when it is running out of gas. Feels like something needs to be cleared. I pulled off the road and let the car idle for a while, then revved the engine a few times. The same thing happened.
