car, I make the levels do not go below the cross-hatched area on the
Could this make the check engine light come on? It will come on either
driving up a hill or going down a hill. I live in a mountainous area and
there really isn't any flat areas.
Well, Carolyn... if the lite comes on, there will be a code stored.
Find an autoparts store that reads out codes and post them here... do NOT
just let them sell you the fix.
Do not just accept their definition, post the exact codes.
Not really on the same topic, but mine has been coming on and then going off
by itself after a few days. When the light is off is the code still there?
There is nothing wrong with the car (96 Windstar) that I can tell. It starts
and runs fine.

Have it read out. Typical of that 'CEL on and off' but car runs fine
symptom, are DPFE/EGR problems.
Check the tubing running to the dpfe sensor to start, have the codes read
and report here.
