My check enigne light comes on after I have driven for a while. Once I stop its goes out, when I start back up and drive for a while it comes back on. How do you do a diagnostic test on a 90 GMC P-U, or any ideals.

The CEL coming On the computer has identifed a problem within the engine management system. You need to pull the code/s. Below is how you do it and comeback with the code/s
