Good morning,

First, is you check engine light illuminated?

When was the last time the spark plugs were replaced?

Fuel filter?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Check engine light is illuminated. Spark plugs and fuel filter last replaced more than 12 months ago. What should I do?
Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

The first step should be to have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes. That will give us an idea of which system is experiencing the fault. Without that info we would just be replacing things and hoping it works.

Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

Do you have access to a scan tool or somewhere that does? Most parts stores will scan codes for free.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I plan on taking it to Pep Boys tomorrow. Will you be available to talk to me tomorrow when I get there?
Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

I will be around, but not necessarily online all day. If you can get the codes scanned and then post them here then I can give some insights.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok, will do. Thank you!
Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

You bet.

Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

I just wanted to check whether you still need help with this issue.

Please let me know if you do.
