Hello and thank you for your question, My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.
The check engine light comes on when the computer is seeing a system fault and when this happens the computer will set and store a fault code and or codes. In order to determine what is setting the code you are going to need to start with having the computer system scanned. Most auto part stores such as Auto Zone will run the scan for you at no charge. If you can get this done and post back with the code and or codes I can direct you in the correct repair.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
