Greetings Sir or Madam and welcome to JA! I will do my very best to assist you with your problem.

Do you have the code that was stored that caused the check engine light to come on?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
no, my local garage wanted $50. to check the codes...if I let him do that then I wouldn't need to ask you...I guess I'll just take it AAmco and let them do it Thanks anyway..Joe

Parts stores can read the codes for free. Then you won't have to pay the dealer to read the codes and I can assist you and also let you know if it is something you should go to the garage to repair.

you mean I can go to Advaned Auto and ask them to check my cars code and see which one made the light come on for nothing and if not how would I find out the code without have them check it with their equip...Joe

Yes, advanced or autozone will scan it for codes. For free! Then you bring me the could read like P0500, that is the code I need. That is just an example, what we call a P code. You get that and I can likely help. It might point us right to the sensor or whatever. I have the code descriptions.This will tell me if you need a sensor or may need a rebuild. It is vital to help us diagnose the car if it is related. It will really help
