Re: Check Engine Light

You need to get the computer read so you can see what it says. It is impossible to guess what it could be as there are lots of things that could cause it

biggrin Got the problem fixed !!!!!!!!

Hey..

thanks for helping out with computer.. i called few other place for the computer hooking up .. cost approx 80 to 90 bucks per hours just to diagoned the problem.. so i had one brilliant idea ! drove my truck to the BOCES place.. im sure some of you have heard of it.. drove them and they had the computer up to date.. all the information so they hooked it up and the computer diagnoed the oxgen sensor is shot off the roof bad ratio with gas and air.. so they replaced it with bosch oxgen sensors. and its bye bye check engine light !!!!!!!!!!!

so anyone who is on tight budget.. go to boces !!!!!!

they r awesome place wonderful !!!!

Re: Check Engine Light

You do know that you can go to AutoZone and they will scan it for free. Just so you know.
