1996 Chevy Cavalier 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 145000 miles
Just purchased this car from friend. Running fine until antifreeze level adjusted by mechanic then temp gauge would spike and then go to cold tho sometimes would stop in middle momentarily. Check engine light came on when gauge spiked then go out when cold.
Problem now: check engine stays on but flashes periodicallly. (Had fuel pump, temp sensor, and knock sensor replaced along with head gasket sealer
put in). Mechanic says timing off 13 degrees and needs new timing chain (by alpha code reader). Could Engine light possibly be bad or a bad fuse?
have the same problem?
