Hi Sifu sekalian,

My wira 1.6xli check engine light is on and off during driving. The check engine light will on for few seconds during driving and off later. Any idea what wrong it that? By the way, my car does look fine as no jerking and etc. I'm wondering whether need to send it to service center to check the engine tuning.

Thanks. rolleyes.gif

do send it in as it could probably be one of the sensors giving way already..

I just send my car to service center today and they've check the tuning with MUT-II. They claim got error code saying the air flow to ekzoz got problem and have reset the code and spray some cleaner to clean the TB. Total spend is RM70. I'm monitoring it now whether the problem resolve or not else have to send back for them to check.

beemc,
i'm not sure what ur problem is. It may relate to your TB because I've my car jerking during driving and die off when waiting for traffic light few years back. I've send my car to check then they've changed the ISC gear in the TB but it won't last long. After 3rd set of ISC gear been changed but it happen again, so I decide to change a new TB and it last me for few year till now before i got this check engine light on and off intermittent during driving.(Touch wood)
