check engine light came on flashing
Isabel, the only reason the check engine light will FLASH is because of a misfire, otherwise the light will stay on solid for any other reason. You probably notice a jerking when accelerating, normally this is caused by something electrical, plugs, plug wires or coils. Good Luck

How do you change the spark plugs on the drivers side of my2002 Lincoln LSV8? I have changed the ones on the passenger side with no problem, but am having trouble with the others.

I read these posts and have to laugh, how do you expect people to answer your questions when they have no idea what you're driving. Cars are problem specific so give us a clue, Wayne from Spokane, WA Thanks

I have a 2003 Chevy 2500 van. Today all of a sudden my oil pressure dropped to 0 then jumped to 80.
It did this several times and then stayed at 80. Checked the oil, it was a little low but still reading on dipstick.
Can anyone help?

I have a 99 chevy blazer tha will not start. I put on new spark plugs, rotor and cap along with a new emissions control modual and coil. I thought it was an electrical issue. After all of that it still would not start. I found out that it is a fual issue. When i poured gas into the carborator it would run as long as i had my foot on the gas. But when u let it idal it would die and not turn over. I already spent every last dime i had could u tell me what it could be. I was told that it could be my fual pump. Is that right?
