Occasionally, the Check Engine Light may come on, this can be related to a failed air flow sensor. This type of fault is commonly repaired by cleaning or replacing the air flow sensor.

    The engine light turned on repeatedly following a 'reset' by my mechanic. He suggested using higher-grade gasoline with lower ethanol content, which seems to have done the trick over the past 2,000 miles or so.

  • I have had everything changed from the Oxygen sensors to the fuel pump and the light will not go off. I think it might be my gas cap as I noticed cracks around the seal. I guess I will have to wait and see.
