Engine Light On and Off - Car Chugging/Sluggish On and Off
I drive a 2005 Dodge SX 2.0. It currently has about 86,000kms on it and I'm running into a problem and I'm not sure what to do about it.
About a month ago I was driving and my engine light came on while I was stopped. Shifted to first, started to drive, car got to about 2300rpm's and started chugging and sputtering like it was going to die. Did this in any/every gear. Turned the car off - waited 4 hours - same problem. Took my car into the mechanics because I thought it had something to do with the fuel filter. Mechanic looks it over a couple days later - takes it for a drive, no problems. I tell him to keep it and drive it every day for a week and sure enough - problem comes up again. Mechanic decides it's a fuel regulator and replaces it. I got the car back after the replacement and transmission flush and all is good! Three days later - engine light returns but this time there is no chugging. 2 days later - no engine light?
Today - driving and the light comes on, again, and the chugging starts up again!? WTF is what I'm thinking now. Park the car for 4 hours - start it up, and the lights on but the chugging is gone... AGAIN!
Has anyone here had a similar problem? Any thoughts/suggestions on what it could be? ANY ideas/advice on this would be awesome because this problem is driving me bat sh*t crazy!
