Re: A bit of much needed honesty today!
Sometimes Check Engine issues are simple, and sometimes that are not. I frequently am able to repair a vehicle for a $50 charge. I sometimes have to spend 3 or 4 hours tracking down a tricky problem. I sometimes have to install a $1500 catalytic converter. I sometimes cannot find the problem right away and I have to clear the fault code to see if it returns.You never know what you will find when doing a check engine related repair.
Do not ignore your check engine light when it comes on. Ignoring it for long periods of time can cause other issues to develop within your cars software system that will cause the repair technician to spend more time performing tests. Also other components on your vehicle could fail as a result of the initial problem thusly costing you even more money. Often your fuel milage is affected when the light is on too.
Bo, I am glad that it all worked out for you.
I kind of like old drums:)
