Check Engine Tip O Da Day
So you are driving down the road and all of the sudden you see an extra light on the dashboard…darn, it’s the check engine light. Now what? A trip to the dealer is a $100 loss when you pull into the parking lot and that is not on the top of my list of things to do. So, how about a trip to the nearest Advance Auto Parts or Auto Zone? These places have the diagnostic computers compatible with most cars and, get this - they will do it for free! Yep, you walk out of there with the secret little code to tell a mechanic so they know the problem area. Nice huh?
Along the lines of car tips, I sent my last payment to Honda today, which was very exciting!
Check engine light usually means that youve gone 5000 miles since your last oil change (or you forgot the reset the counter) or that your oxygen sensor is going bad.
Oh, Check Engine on my car meant that my gas cap wasn't tight enough...it's the Maintenence Required light that means oil change.
