Hi, I’m Cary and I’ll be helping you today.
Please understand that I can't smell, hear, or touch the vehicle, so patience is appreciated. Before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as needed, even after the rating..

Have you checked it for codes since the MIL is on?

That would be helpful to diagnose the problem. Once it starts and runs does it run ok?

Yea. We need to have the codes checked. AutoZone and most parts stores will do it for free. Can you have them checked and post back?
