check engine light

  1. 98 SH rpm jumping on idle

    5th Gen
    I started my car one morning to go to work and after my car had warmed up, the check engine light and ATTS light turned on and my rpms started to jump up and down. I don't know much about cars, any info would help. Thanks. I just checked the codes P0505 P0401
  2. Poor Idle/Shutter/CEL/Lights Flutter

    I have a '99 Base.. I have a few issues. I am hoping they aren't issues at all. I just got the rear main changed, clutch replaced, and the serpentine done.. In the past week, I went to vtec and then had a flashing CEL... but it went off after 10 seconds, took my OBDII and no codes were found...

  7. new air intake causes check engine light.

    3rd Gen

I used dryer hosing and hose claps, but i didn't make a way for the vacuum hose coming from the valve cover to fit in, because i was told it was not a necessity, that i would just need to put a filter...
  8. 5th gen check engine light on?

    5th Gen
    Hey I put on a new exhaust not too long ago from headers all the way back. Both oxygen sensors are connected but the check engine light code reads a problem with the sensors-this only happened when I changed my exhaust, can anyone help me figure out how to get the light off?
