Try replacing inline fuel filter.


Get the codes read at the parts store. Write down the trouble code number and post it here. Someone will advise the most cost effective solution.

So like autozone or advanced auto parts

If the check engine light is flashing it means there's a missfire. replace plugs and wires. If u keep driving it the unburned fuel will damage ur catalytic converter!
