JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with Mitsubishi. The Mitsubishi Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: nothing is really wrong with it. it runs fantastic. it smokes just a bit but other than that it runs great. but its the check engine light is on and those were the codes it gave me.
JA: The mechanics have tons of experience in that area. Do you happen to have the code?
Customer: code po173 and po173 with a pat the end on top and a d at the bottom
JA: I'll pass this info along to the Mitsubishi Mechanic so that he can get you a quick fix. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: heavens yes. cant afford to pay anyone anything to help me. and is this going to cost me for this information?
