Anytime the check engine light comes on, it will store a code in the memory. This code will isolate the problem area. You will need to have that code retrieved from the memory. Once the code is retrieved send it to me and we can track the problem down form there. A lot of auto part stores like Auto Zone will retrieve these codes for free.
