    Service Engine light ON!

    Last Friday I was on the way to an out of town meeting with my Eco and went through a road construction zone in the dark. I got a piece of metal in the sidewall of the tire and called roadside for assistance. They changed the tire and I got directions through OnStar to the nearest Chevy dealer. After the hour wait for them to arrive, I started my car and it ran rough for a few seconds and as I throttled the engine, it smoothed right out but the "Service Engine" light came on. When I got to the dealership, they replaced the tire (221.11 ouch!) and told me that there were two codes in the History but they were showing "cleared."- One was for 'Lean Condition" and the other was for "Boost Sensor Performance." They told me they could not find anything so I left. The light was still on and didn't go out until the next day but the car ran fine. On Tuesday of this week, the light came back on but the car is running fine. I have an appointment at the dealership that I bought it at next Tuesday. Any ideas or similar experiences?

    I've never encountered this yet. Its hard to say. They should've told you which code illuminated the MIL. Obviously it didnt 'clear' or you wouldnt be in this situation right now. Maybe take it to an autoparts store and have them retrieve the codes in the meantime, and see which one is still biting, or both. Regardless, I'd take it easy til Tuesday, a lean code can be destructive if the car is beaten on (Not saying you do, just a heads up lol).

    Here are the codes = PO171 and PO236. These were on the invoice from the dealership. It said they were in history but currently passing whatever that means!

    It's because your plugs aren't gapped correctly.

    Mine actually just did the same thing this morning except I didn't get a check engine light and I have no fault codes. Very rough idle for 10 seconds or so, gave light throttle and pretty much went away and never came back.

    My chevy cruze has codes p0106, p0171,po172,p1101 and the engine light was on. The car acted as if it had a fuel filter problem, it would die down then catch and run great. The dealership said the car was to new to them so they could not figure out what the problem was. They cleared the dtc's and done a road test and everything worked fine. Then today(two days later) the engine light is back on. I will be bringing it back in on friday. My problem is they act is if they don't know what to do about the problem. Any suggestions?
