Hi, thank you for posting your question to Just Answer. My name is***** am an ASE Certified Auto Technician with over 45 years of real world experience in dealerships and the aftermarket. I was the owner/operator of an automotive repair shop for 20 of those years. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please remember I do not know your skill level. I cannot see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle, so it may take a few back and forth replies or a phone call to get to a satisfactory resolution. I will make every effort to get you all of the information you may need with the expectation you will give me a positive rating once you are satisfied. Please be aware that I am usually working with a few people at a time, so occasionally it may take a few minutes to respond.

Is the check engine light on as you drive or is it flashing?
