    fuel cut off issue?

    now and then (maybe like once a month/2 months) i'm driving on the highway and i'm pushing the car a little hard and it jerks forward and the check engine light comes on. is this a fuel cutoff? the car doesn't turn off though, its still running, but i'm just curious what it is. I thought maybe it was because of the o2 sensor because my exhaust is catless( actually 1 cat). but idk. thanks

    The CEL doesn't come on just because of fuel cut. You haven't specified whether you're hitting redline. That's the only time the fuel cut kicks in.

    you need to pull the code with an OBD2 scanner. Either buy one (car parts store) or have somewhere pull the code for you (car parts store, tire shop, speed shop etc etc). We cannot help at all without you pulling the code. However, if all the lights are coming up you need to figure it out before you keep driving.

    I'm betting the third light is the ABS.

    Without a code(s), this thread is pointless.....
