Hi there

has the check engine light come on? was there any recent work done to it?

Customer: replied 10 years ago.
Reply to Sam C's Post: Yes the check engine light did come on the next day. The last work done to it was about 6 months ago when the alternator was replaced.

Ok, we need to find out what turned on the light. go by a local auto parts store and have them scan the computer for codes. Places like autozone will do it for free, and let you know the code that turned the light on. once you know what it is, write it down and let us know what the code is. This will help greatly in diagnosing your car quickly and accurately

let me know what you find
