Engine light/loss of power

Asked by Dec 24, 2015 at 05:08 PM about the 2010 Honda Fit

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The check engine light started blinking and
the car seemed sluggish like it was losing
power. I could only reach about 25 mph.
It's a 2010 Honda Fit- manual
transmission. When in neutral, the engine
light turned off. Other online forums said it
could be failure of the catalytic converter.
Anyone else have this issue before I take it
to the dealership?

A flashing check engine light is warning you that the engine is misfiring and damaging the catalytic converter. You'll need to scan the computer to see which cylinder is misfiring. If you have over 100,000 miles on your Honda it may just need a simple tune up. Most auto parts stores will scan the computer for free. If the check engine light does not remain on there may not be a code stored. I've run into that before. HTH. -Jim
