#1

was driving at 75 mph when my car slowed to 55mph. i pulled over and let it sit for about 15 minutes and then it was ok.It has happened a few times. Mechanic installed a timing valve solenoid and it surged a few times on me what is the problem. it has 217000 miles. other than problem mentioned it runs great…HELP…P.S. Now engine light comes on when it surges.


#2

If the Check Engine light is now coming on, the computer has stored a trouble code.

Have the mechanic pull the trouble codes from the computer, and it may indicate what’s causing the surging.
