Hi Ronnie


No there have not been any repairs done due to expense. I had the diagnostic done at the dealership and the response was that the reason the car not passing the emission is due to EGR VALVE everything else seems to be fine. The cost of repairs quoted was too expensive and I need transportation now.


Please help!!!

As long as the problem hasnt been resolved the light isnt going to go out and its not likely you can pass the test. You can try removing the negative battery cable for about 10 minutes and this will turn off the light but if the cause of the light to come on hasnt been repaired, it will return.
