Hey how are you

is there like an advance or auto zone where she is , where she can take it and have it scanned & retrieve the fault to see why the check engine light came on ?

they scan the car for free and give her a print out with fault codes

you can post them back here for me & i can tell you

we need to know is it an emission related code or engine misfire code or transmission code, based on that we can know if it is safe to drive

if emission related be okay ,but engine & trans code no ,will have to be addressed

Please let me know

Thank You
