Question Answered: WHY DOES MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COME ON THEN OFF

You may have an intermittent problem, so when the on board diagnostics system checks it - sometimes it checks ok within the parameters set, and sometimes it's not, which triggers the check engine light to come on. The codes will be stored in the history or pending, even if the light is not on. Have the codes checked to make sure something critical is not neglected, leading to a more expensive repair. Simply you can also check to make sure you are tightening your gas cap properly, because if it is loose the check engine light will come on.

This vehicle has direct ignition coils and your coil may have failed. It's important to check the condition of the spark plugs, if they are worn out the misfire can wear out the coils as well. There are other less likely causes to your cylinder misfire that would be inspected if the spark plugs and coil are working optimally.

Car Review: 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe
March 31, 2011, 12:57 PM
I have this 2000 Tahoe, mine's a Z71. It has about 190k miles and it's really an excellent vehicle for a family. Very roomy and comfortable. The leather is still in excellent condition. It has been regularly maintained. The dual air is nice to ensure comfort throughout this spacious SUV. We are just replace the a/c compressor and a fuel injector. The previous owner switched and put green coolant in, but we are converting it back to the original DEX-COOL (red) for Chevy's. These large SUV's corner a bit uncomfortably. Now I'm getting a little exhaust fumes when first starting.
