Engine Light
Hi guys my engine light is on, and my cruise light is blinking... im confused anyone ever had this?

the cruise light will always blink if the check engine light comes on. I've had my cruise control light blink without the check engine light but thats a different issue.
you should go to advance and they can pull the code for you for free, then you can work from there. it could be a simple problem such as, gas cap or something more serious like a misfire. so get it scanned and work from there.

Miss in cylinder 4... but the spark pplugs and coil are brand new... so i replaced the wires... still drives the same (drives great) so idk what else could be wrong :(... im going to clear the code then see if it comes back.... by the way cylinder 4 is the back right cylinder when your looking under the hood isnt it?

Could also be a vacuum leak. Check all the little hoses and make sure they're are connected, along with the "T" fitting underneath the intercooler, behind the intake manifold.

^2 make sure all of the vacuum hoses are connected. how do you know the plugs and coils are brand new? did you replace them or?

Might be possible that the #4 spark plug could be fauling out, even though it might be new. A dirty fuel injector could not be spraying properly, try some fuel injector cleaner.

AWDylanW 10-31-2012 12:16 PM

i still havent reset it or anything either yet its been snowing and raining here and i have no grage :/ ... but ill get some fuel injector cleaner, oh and the two times it has turned on and stayed on, it only turns on when i let it run at idle for over like a minute or two.
