Default Woo Hoo!!

The check engine light I mentiuoned in another thread went out. Yay for me, as I can't afford to fix nothin' right now, or lose a vehicle to down time.

Quick question tho. Would a bad batch of gas, combined with our sudden cold sanp, be able to cause it to light up? The reason I ash is because I was down to about 3/8 of a tank of gas, in our first stretch of consistent freezing weather. The wife and I agreed we hoped it was water in the fuel or something.


And Gordy, if you're stll up to it one day, I'd still like to see what codes it stored to verify or refute any theories.

I know that light can come on with something as simple as a loose gas cap. If it was getting cold out and the cap was on...but might have been a little loose...who knows.

Glad it went out...but keep and eye on it (I know you will) as it could be an indication of something a little more serious coming up. Your best bet is to read the code and at least see what it was. Might just be a bad O2 or something...not that serious.

That scantool will give your history codes. I'd definitely follow up on it. (you may have more than one code stored).
