1994 Chrysler LHS Check Engine Light

I recently purchased a 1994 Chrysler LHS w/125,000 miles on it. After the gas got down low, I filled it with gas. The next time I started the car, the Check Engine Light came on and stayed as I drove to the store. When I came out, I let the engine idle for a few minutes thinking that might help and the light did not come back on. This happened a couple of times. Since then, the CEL has stayed on. After reading your archives, I am hoping this might be from the gas cap not being on tight enough. Since I just bought the car, I really don't have much money to put into it right now. Our local repair shop said they would charge $100 just to find the codes. Do you know if Auto Zone or any other place can put the computer on it for free? I also seem to have a number of oil leaks, including some on the chrank case cover. There is also a tie-rod that needs replacing, can you tell me the cheapest way to get it repaired? Is it difficult or time consuming? Thank you.

Autozone does not have the capability to scan your computer as it is pre-OBDII. You can, however, check the code yourself. Get a pen and piece of paper, insert your key into the ignition, and do this: ON - OFF - ON - OFF - ON. The computer will now go into diagnostic mode, and will flash the code tp you.
