Check engine light on at idle - HELP!

92 eclipse, (base model)

As the title says it - When I come to a stop and the car idles the check engine light turns on, when i tap the gas pedal it goes off then comes back on once back at idle.

The only thing I have changed before I had this problem was the idle control sensor.

Do you have an idle issue like surges? And watch your spelling because you will be suspended if you don't follow rule 7 just letting you know.

Re: Check engine light on at idle - HELP!

Well, I should start by asking why did you change the sensor?

And, what modifications do you have done to the car? Sometimes it can be the cause for the check engine light coming on.

Re: Check engine light on at idle - HELP!

I did have a power serge problem and that was the reason i changed the idle control sensor. After I changed it the car runs good again.

The one and only mod it has is a MagnaFlow exhaust that was on the car when i bought it. $500 and been sitting in the driveway for the past 2 years. LOL!

The engine has a slight lifter knock but its not bad. Now that I think of it, the car does have an oil leak. Do you think think that may have anything to do with the light at idle?
