Hi i was wondering is there a difference between having your check engine light come or this service engine soon light if so what intails the service engine light to come on. I have an 89 vette.
Thanks Rich

The problem was the temp. sensor that sends the info to the computer. The sensor was telling the car it was way below 0 and it was compensating for that and flooding itsef out. Anyway $375 later it's fixed including the tow.
Again thanks for your help

Man, getting the code is easy, you should keep track of that in case a wire
falls off the sensor or it goes bad, if your not a mechanic thats one thing,
but knowing what wrong with your car before it enters the shop can save you a lot $$. Some of the sensors are very accessible and easy to change yourself, save the mechanic for the "tough" jobs!
