1992 Buick Skylark mileage: 38,000. When I drive my car on the freeway for awhile the check engine light comes on, when I get off an exit ramp it stalls, and I have trouble getting it to keep running without stalling again. I have to keep my feet on the gas and brake and floor it to keep it running. What do you think the problem is?
The check engine light will light when there is a malfunction in the engine management system. The fault code is then stored in the computer. The computer must be scanned to retrieve these stored faults to pinpoint the malfunctioning component. Because the check engine light indicates something is wrong, a trip to you neighborhood automobile service center sooner rather than later is recommended.
