Yep, I figured that A repair manual wouldn't tell me what those codes mean, would it?

Its the tips. The chrysler tip is slightly different. Trust me on this. I found out the hard way.

Also, there are different tips required for TBI as opposed to MPFI. Also found that out the hard way. Ask Pat for details on that story.


And I got the code check right on the first try.

The Neon'* throwing a code 55...Neon-slang for "all is well". My response to it was not rated G.

Does anyone know where all the random sensors are? Like, is there a coolant level or oil level sensor that would prevent the car from starting?
