YAY! Check engine light...

Yuck. Livin' in kansas at the moment. Anyway, it's been hot as crap lately and very humid. I was making a drive to Kansas City (40 minute drive) and 3/4 of the way there happy check engine light comes on. Car drives and runs fine. Could the heat/humidity cause the light to come on? gotta get my oil changed soon and instead of doin it myself I'll probably take it to the ford dealer instead...icky poo

You're gonna have to get the OBDII code it's throwing to know what is wrong.

Re: YAY! Check engine light...

I think if you had a v6 with an eaton, you wouldn't have to worry about check engine lights. Push boost up to 20psi, and just worry about a new motor maybe replace it with a v8

nah all jokes aside, go get a scanner and see what's going wrong. check coolant, make sure any sensors off the exhaust didn't come out, change ur oil (i blew my v6 up that way when i had a 6er)... other than that, scan for the code.

Re: YAY! Check engine light...

I dont think thats whats causing your engine light. You really need to get it scanned.

If you were still up here in town, I'd scan it quick for you.
