We need the code from the light. It is an indication of a failure in the fuel injection system

AS FAR AS THE NOISE YOU ARE HEARING---IT MAY BE RELATED TO THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT BEING ON (MAYBE NOT)

IT WOULD MAYBE HELP IF YOU AND MAYBE A BUDDY COULD "PIN DOWN" THE LOCATION OR AT LEAST THE AREA WHICH IT IS GENERATING FROM

ALTHOUGH I MAY NOT BE THE ONE TO HELP YOU HERE.I DO IT THIS WAY MYSELF, EXCEPT NOW, I HAVE MY OWN INEXPENSIVE CODE SCANNER

SOMEBODY HERE WILL TRY, SHOULD YOU BE GETTING NOWHERE (EVEN IF I HAVE TO GO GET SOMEONE).I'M SORTA A PRE-COMPUTER KINDA VEHICLE GUY (JEEP CJs)

THE OLE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS THERE TO ALERT YOU THAT THE COMPUTER HAS SENSED A PROBLEM THE ENGINE AND SOMETIMES OTHER STUFF

IT IS CAPABLE OF SENSING MAYBE HUNDREDS OF PROBLEMS!

SO LETS SAY MAYBE 2 MONTHS AGO IT SENSED YOUR GAS CAP WAS LOOSE (JUST AN EXAMPLE)

WHO'S TO SAY IT DIDN'T PICK UP ON A MAJOR ENGINE PROBLEM A WEEK AGO. THE LIGHT IS ON, RIGHT?

HERE'S WHAT YOU DOEXACTLY!

MOST POPULAR AUTO PARTS STORES WILL SCAN YOU SYSTEM. USUALLY IT'S A FREE SERVICE!

TAKE PEN AND PAPER

WRITE DOWN EXACTLY WHAT THE CODE NUMBERS ARE. DUMB EXAMPLES ARE P0442, P0167

GET 'EM ALL

THE PARTS STORE GUY MAY GIVE RECOMMENDATIONS OR HIS OPINION AS TO WHAT MAY BE WRONG (HE MAY BE RIGHT) CODES CAN BE INTERPRETED IN DIFFERENT WAYSREASON FOR WANTING THE EXACT NUMBERS. NOT WHAT "HE" THINKS COULD BE WRONG

COME BACK TO THIS POST AND POST THE CODES. SOMEONE WILL HELP YOU. EVEN IF I HAVE TO GO GET 'EM

SHOULD YOU NEED PARTS, MAYBE EXPENSIVE ONES, AND CAN POSSIBLY DO THE REPAIRS YOURSELF (OR FRIENDS) LET ME KNOW 1ST, I MAY CAN SHOW YOU HOW TO SAVE $$$ ON YOUR PURCHASES. I GET ALERTED AS TO ACTION ON THIS POST, SINCE I REPLIED, I WILL BE ABLE TO SEE HOW YOU ARE COMING ALONG

GET CODED. NOW. WHILE IT WILL DRIVE

ONCE YOU GET IT CODED. MAYBE THE AUTO PARTS STORE WILL GIVE YOU SUGGESTIONS. LET'S INVESTIGATE THIS A LITTLE DEEPER BEFORE YOU TAKE ACTION (THIS MAY SAVE YOU TIME AND THE MONEY OF "THROWING PARTS AT IT

YOU MAY HAVE ONE OR MANY CODES SHOW UP

TAKE EACH ONE. EXAMPLE : "P0440"

AND TACK EACH ONE ON THE END OF THIS

OBD-CODES. COM/ "THEN EACH CODE, ONE AT A TIME, ON A NEW TAB"

NOW IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE THIS

OBD-CODES. COM/P0440 ENTER IT

NORMALLY THIS WILL BRING UP A PAGE THAT "EXPLAINS THE SITUATION"----"POSSIBLE CAUSES"----AND BEST OF ALL, "POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS"

SHOULD YOU STILL HAVE PROBLEMS OR QUESTIONS----GIVE US THE EXACT CODE NUMBERS THAT THE SCANNER SHOWED (NOT INTERPRETATIONS--THAT HAVE BEEN THROWN AT YOU)

WAITING ON YOU---GIVE US SOME GOOD NEWS!
