THANKS - YOU GUYS ARE GREAT. Here are my answers to your questions:
If this guy has a o2 sensor tester which they do make them have him test it's probably going to test bad because of the mileage. So which code did he say was turning the check engine light back on?
- he didn t find a code turning the check engine light back on. It just looked like it didn t clear from the time he put in the NEW EGR valve so this time he unhooked the battery for a couple of minutes instead of a short time
So the guy that fixes your car just take's the battery cable's off to clear the code's?
- yes besides putting on the new egr valve
He doesn't have a tool to do that?What doesn't make sense is when I asked you about codes you said you asked about that and were told you have none.
- no I said I didn t have the codes myself as I had not asked for them this time I asked and found out what the history of codes were. And those four codes that I told you about were the only ones showing up this morning
Did he check for code's then?Because now you have all these code's come out of no where that are suppose to be history code's from the egr repair. Make's no sense to me.
-. Simple misunderstanding with time delays. The codes are not new no new code for today just the history of codes showed up
The 76 and 77 has to do with the egr valve
- yes I know that because it showed for ports # 2 and #3. And that s why he put in a new EGR valve
the 35 has to with the idle air control valve that control's your idle
-interesting. Because I have a real problem on cold start s. The engine rev s toooooo high. And then calms down once the car is going
Here's the funny thing that code 54 that he said you could have a clogged fuel filter or bad fuel pressure regulator I think I would find a new guy to fix my car. Here is the code description for code 54 it's for the fuel pump electrical circuit not fuel pressure or flow
-OK. FOR CODE 54. I just had the FUEL RAIL LINE REPLACED A MONTH OR SO AGO. Sounds like they didn t set it right? Thoughts on this as it affects SMOG?
Since new EGR put in. And ports cleaned - new catalytic converter. DO YOU THINK CODE 54 might be it?
THANKS SO MUCH!
