1988 Buick Century Repair Question
What causes the check engine light to come on when warmed and idleing
could be any of 1500 different items. you need to have the code pulled and get back to us with the number so we can further assist you
What kind of scanner could I use on a vehicle that old? Most of the ones i see don't work on 1988's
its an obd1 stystem. you will need a shop to pull the code for you. they will most likely charge you for the service.
I used a paper clip to get the check engine light to flash me the code and i got 35, I found a page on this site saying that it means idle air control sensor circuit fault. Where should I go from here? I believe this is something i should be able to fix myself, I'm very mechanically inclined, just need to know what direction i should go in with this.
in the big hose to the throttle body is the iat sensor. make sure it is plugged in and the wires are not broke. if all is good, replace the sensor and see what happens
