    Is it the "check engine light" that comes on. If it is, this could be caused by many different issues. The first thing I have done is check the gas cap on your fuel tank and make sure it is on tight. If this looks ok then drive to autozone or your friendly auto mechanic and have them "pull the code" from your car's onboard computer. This code will tell you where the problem is. You should not have to pay anyone for this since it is so simple, if you have the right tool. Mechanics have tried to charge me as much as $60 for this service. I gave up trusting mechanics and invested the money a bought a "code scanner" so I can diagnose my own car.

    Hope this Helps.

    The light is an indication that something is wrong. To be on the safe side, I would suggest you take it to a mechanic to determine what the problem is. Otherwise, you may end up with bigger problems. Unfortunately, cars seem to start having problems after about 5 years or so. Once the problem has been resolved, to reduce future engine problems, apply measures to take proper care of your vehicle. Measures that will reduce your vehicle’s operating and maintenance expenses and extend the life of your engine.

    P0306 Cylinder 6 Misfire Detected P0316 Misfire Detected On Startup (First 1000 Revolutions) P0411 Secondary Air Injection System Incorrect Flow Detected P0511 MAZDA - Idle Control System Malfunction P2195 - "Oxygen (A/F) Sensor Signal Stuck Lean (Bank 1 Sensor 1)" sounds like something is wrong with ur Mass Air Flow Sensor. make shure ur idle control above ur throttle and ur MAFS is plugged in or has corroded wires. id also check for a hole in ur intake system that could also be it. most likely the miss-fires are because ur car is running lean and the fuel mix ratios isn't good enough to get proper ignition. and the reason ur car runs good at first and then stops running good after codes come on is it probably goes into a limp home mode. which in most cars means instead of sequential fuel injection it uses continues fuel injection and the miss fires + the combo of this will make ur car run like crap. P.S. sry my grammer sucks

    There are literally thousands of reasons why the MIL(malfunction indicator light) could be illuminated. Some may be okay to operate the vehicle under, others will bring a quick demise.

    It needs to be diagnosed and repaired by a certified technician.

  • 1 decade ago

    Let me say that it's not going to blow up your motor,but it might start to run bad.It could be one of many things that causing the light to come on.Means on right now and i fix the things that it said was wrong with it .You can take it to most auto parts store's and they will put a machine on it to tell you whats the problem.It's free of charge as well.If you need the car then drive it ;.
