Why does my key light blink after I turn off engine?
my check engine light came on and the code was for the coil pack. i replaced them both. before the light came on my car was losing power in first and second gear and hopping a bit. after i changed the packs it got way worse. i have to keep the rpms atleast 2300 just to keep the car from hopping. the check engine light turned off when i changed the packs so i have no way of checking codes. it is my only car and it is driving me insane.
Car will not warm up unless moving engine will be warm and the second you move warm air comes out. A/C works no matter standing still or moving no antifreeze has been changed for a while (2 years or more) so I cant imagine it would be air needing to be bleed. possible thermostat but why not all the time is there a sensor to prohibit cold air blowing going faulty? IDK any help is appreciated.

I am being advised that I need to have the left head replaced due to low compression to the tune of about $4,700.
That is for a 12 month 12,000 mile warranty. Recommend whole engine and don't have price on that yet. I took it in to dealer because of check eng light/real ruff idle. No problem noticed at high speeds. I really don't have the $4,700 and I am hoping maybe some other cheaper issue like sensor or wiring. I am not a mechanic but will try simple maintenance.

I have owned this car for four years. It now has 88K miles on it. About three times a year an ASC light comes on. When I turn the engine off for a couple of minutes the computer resets and the car will return to normal for three or four months. Four times the ASC light came on and the accelerator became totaly inactive and the engine will only idle. This happened this morning at 65 mph on 405 (6 lanes of traffic)in LA and nearly caused a major freeway wreck. The dealer has reprogramed the computer twice trying to solve the problem. What to do?
Loosing break fluid but no sign of leak. I have to add fluid about once a month.I replaced both rear brake cylinders about 6 months ago.
