Re: check engine light

Oh ok...I wouldn't think the code would flash when you pressed the gas...but if the code system is that smart I'm thinking its related...fuel pressure?emissions? well let us know. Dont' any of the other shops test for free? what's this world coming to? I know Dreamstang said 20 but seems they can get more expensive than that in a hurry.

What part of CA are you from? Is there a shop you trust that can check it for you? A local shop did my timing for free and checks your car for free.

Do a KOEO test to get the codes.
