Question about Cars & Trucks
Pretty much any of your local ayto parts stores will pull diagnostic trouble codes at no charge. As far as a "cheap diagnostic", depending on the code you get and how detailed it is to properly diagnose depends on what code you get.Just an example, say you get a code of P0171. This code means that the upstream O2 sensor has detected a lean burning condition. Many of the auto part stores will just tell you that you need the upstream O2 sensor and sell you one. That's really the main reason they do it for free but really proper diagnosing needs to be done. A lean burning condition very well could be a faulty O2 sensor but it could also mean that you have a vacuum leak, a blockage in the intake system like needing a new air filter, an exhaust leak or even if you you recently ran out of gas. All these things can cause that code and I hope you diagnose before you just buy a part. I'm just using that code as an example as there are so many codes and many tests too. Hope this helps you.....

If the check engine light came back on after the computer was reset you need to take it and have the code read to see what the problem is. Most auto parts stores will check it for you free such as Autozone, O'riely, Pep Boys.
