Does it run any worse when this happens?

Does it do it on all temp settings including A/C or just when you switch to heat?

I'm wondering if it's an electrical problem with the blower motor. try unplugging the blower motor and see if it still sets off the check engine light.

Did you pull your code from the computer? It would help to know what it is. Are there any other symptoms? Could you punctuate once in a while so that I know what is a single thought? It is difficult to read without the punctuation.

Thanks tom checked it. No I didn't j can't check the code cars to old don't have the tools. When car is idle heat gets lower and smells a little, when I accelerate gets higher smells a little also. I'm thinking it has to do with the heater core and definitely going to replace the coolant, and add cleaner coolant.

But you do have the tool. That's one nice thing about OBDI.



Checking codes with a paper clip.
