      Intermittent Check Engine Light...Transmission Related.

      The 'check engine light' comes on....when I miss coming to a total stop. And then I 'gun it'...to move fast from a near stop, like doing a 'rolling stop'.....you know what I mean.

      Then I hit the gas it is SEEMS to drop a gear,like normal, to rev up....and the light comes on. It just strikes me as odd. Is it??? It clears itself on its own in 1-3 days. But has anyone had this happen to them??. Wondered if it is odd or this is what happens???

      Believe it or not, an almost bad coil, or worn plugs can give a transmission code. This happens when the transmission reads “torque value out of range”.....happens when you “gun” the engine.

      Hmmm....well..ill have to watch that then. the light went out today already. I dont get a 'trans. code'...the check engine light just pops on. But I'll keep this in mind when/if it happens again. Thanks

      If the light flashed fast when it happened, I’d almost put money on at least the plugs being worn. It’s cheap insurance to replace 4 spark plugs. Other people may say otherwise, but I believe these motors run best with the “cheap” Ac Delco plugs. Don’t waste money on any platinum ones.

      Hi. No it stays on. Not flashing. I have 'E3' plugs in it. About 1 yr now. It is off now. But it pops on sometimes when this type of shifting happens. Struck me as odd.

      Fancy plugs.
      Just for giggles, I’d still replace them with regular AC Delco and see what happens. Worst case...you’re out $12.
