OK, I have had tow shops tell me that the computer that reads the sensors is not working correctly. The various sneosrs have been replace, the egr, etc. One shop was the local Suzuki dealership ( of course they no longer sell them, but are the repair place in Mesa, AZ) the other an independent shop. Suzuki quoted a new system at over $2,000. Seems a bit much. With the check engine light going off the car will not pass AZ emissions inspection. They only read the ODBII codes not the actual gas coming out the tail pipe. It seems I need a new control module but can not find one on line. I have a repair manual that tells me how to replace it, if I had a newer one. Any ideas?

As mentioned in my first response, I would stay in contact with you. I've noticed you have not rated the post. So I assume you were not pleased with my help. I hate that you have spent money to get an answer but left not happy. Can you tell me why, or can I help more. If its more help you need just reply and we can pick up where we left off.
