Hello, thank you for writing in. At this point there are a lot of possible causes for your vehicle’s symptoms. To gather more information, we need to start with having the vehicle scanned for diagnostic troubleshooting codes. This can be done at most automotive parts stores, or by a technician equipped with a scan tool. From there, we can gather the information from the computer regarding what issues are causing the warning lights. We can then use that information to narrow down the possibilities. You may be having issues with the fuel supply, with an air sensor, with your ignition system, or several other components. Only further testing will tell. For more diagnostic and repair help, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.
