It's guess work without the codes. Since the CEL is on, there is a code or codes stored. Check with some of your local auto parts stores, they will scan the car for free. Post the 4 digit code back here.


Thanks Tom That was my inclination One other observation................ The car in question had be regularly fueled with high octane fuel 93 but the last batch of gas is 89 Octane dispensed in error there is still a 1/3 tank left. Would that have been a factor in this sluggish performance?
