Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Expert:  rpmdiag replied 11 months ago.

You need to first get the codes read that are stored in the computer. Most parts stores will read codes for you for free with their code reader, but a better way is to use a scan tool so you can also read sensor data.

The parts stores normally loan these out too, then you can tell me what the codes are and we can go from there.

Thanks, Ron
