Hi, My name is Jay

Since you disconnected the computer you may have to drive for up to about 50 miles before the check engine light would come back on for O2 sensor codes to see if they will come back or not. It takes this long for the computer to go through all the emission monitors to show pass or fail. If the problem was just a poor connection at the ECM then the light should not come back on unless there is a problem. Anytime light comes on you should get checked as soon as possible to see what failure is and then depending on failure you may need repairs right away or some problems do not affect the way it drives and would just need to be fixed when convenient to get it done.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
