    I don't think they are knowledgeable enough. They said they drove the car for a week (I was away)and the light did not come on, but when I picked it up and put gas in it (because they had used so much gas) within 5 miles, the light came back on.

    You did not tell me how to reset the engine light. If it goes back on then something may be wrong but it has not gone out for a year---I am sick of bringing the car back and having to leave it and spending a fortune yet THAT LIGHT IS STILL ON!

    haha ,, we have changed plugs, wires, coils, MAF ...I keep getting a misfire code on cylinder 3 but the mechanic says there is no misfire ...sometimes she idles a bit rough but mostly she runs well ... engine light stayed off for 6 months once but other than that it comes and goes ..mostly stays ... car is driving my mechnic nuts ...he says its either a drive train issue or the computer is malfunctioning ...when they have it the light usually doesn't come on ...as soon as I pick it up it comes on within a few blocks ..thought I was driving it wrong or something (its a manual transmission ..my first one in years) but the mechanic says no ... I used to worry about it when it would come one ...now I almost miss it when its off ..haha (not funny I know but its either laugh or cry)

Check the O2 and mass air intake sensors. My girlfriend was having the same problem and not able to pass emissions. I forgot the codes. It will cost ALOT less if you can do it yourself. Relatively simple repair.

There may actually be a problem... I would take it back to them, unless they don't seem knowledgable enough. Sometimes one problem can hide another. So it won't be known until the first problem is fixed.

    Ah! You mentioned getting gas! Loose gas caps or gas caps with bad seals, are notorious for causing the check engine light to come on.

I just took my Hyundai 2002 Accent to get inspected. The emissions test light would not come on. Mechanic said it would have to go to the dealer to get the computer reset. Does this cost a lot?


There not exist any computer reset that correct a emission out of range. If the car is running without the check engine light comes lit ( it means if you drive the car more than 40 miles and the check engine light remains off) and the emissions are out of the range, is necessary check if the engine is operating in normal coolant temperature ( half way to the top), check if the air filter is free, check for the spark plugs are working properly, and check if the catalytic converter is at least in 13% of CO2. Also check with a scanner tool if have any engine code stored in the memory.

I have 2001 hyundai accent won't shift into o/d everytime.


Did the 'Check Engine' Light come ON? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on.
You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE and perhaps eventually fix the problem.

Engine light is on, plugged into computer and cleared it, do I need to drive a while prior to passing inspection?


No. If you reset the engine light and you had a problem and didn't fix it before resetting light, then you may get about 5 miles or so before light turns back on again.
You can always try driving to see if light is back on so you are prepared and then you will know, if it stays off, then you are good to go.
