Plug coil.
Service center can detect it as engine light lit up.
Quickly go to a service center.

no need check already, it is knock sensor......plug in computer ,u can see the error. To repair under proton....whole engine need to take out from chasis and open up the engine to change it.... my SC already finish done a PREVE. My flx also 3 times already.

I have also had the problem where the engine can't start, seems to happen around 1-2 times a week since the last 3 months.

Every time this happens, I open the front hood, kibas-kibas sikit and then the engine can start. I don't think it's caused by high engine temperature as it happens even when the engine is cold.

Has anyone found out the actual reason for this problem? What should I tell my mechanic to check for? Each time I go to service my car at proton SC, they told me to use the petrol treatment to prevent this problem but even after using it the problem still occurs.

my saga sv (6 months old) is giving same problem since 2 months ago. occassionally (about once a week), it will only start after a few cranks. however it will start after a few attempts (probable 5 mins). i took it to the Damansara Jaya (Petronas) last week and the technician reset the ecu. it has been 2 days, there has not been any starting problem. i read somewhere it could be a faulty sensor. anymore here could offer proton solution to the problem?

My nearly 3 year old FLX has happen twice.
After letting it cool down about 15 minutes it can start, frightening.
As usual, the service center just say they will check whether it is solved or not I don't know.
