Is the Check Engine Light on? Does it light up momentarily when you turn the ignition key to the START (not ON) position?

Do you know what was good about the good old days? I wasn't good, And I wasn't old!

Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....

No there is no engine light , but the gas in the engine is about 2 years old, I put new gas in but I'm thinking maybe some sort of relay or fuel filter
