Don't worry about it, it's probably just your gas cap!
The Dickies version is slightly less catchy:
Mostly Correct - it was running, but running badly. After reassembling, it was running well.
He has a knack for those things. On the other hand, if I did it, there would be many 'extra' parts left over when I was done.
^...such as a gas cap?
get at least one of the twins off your chest first, sit up and survey the hotel room... then let us know how it is going.
Always start here first...
What doctor is gonna suggest using a wider guitar strap?
The taylor t5 owner or the buys who bought les paul's in the norlin era.
Typically the light is a sign of emissions or misfire. If you have no symptoms I wouldnt take to dealer unless under warranty. It may clear itself.
Is the car acting strange i.e. exhibit any signs such as stumbling, running rich (would be noticeable thru poor gas mileage or black exhaust) I would get it scanned at a parts store and post the code. I do this as my day job and so I have seen codes being set by something else up stream. Post all the codes before buying a part. Also what make is the car year model etc.
No, the car doesn't seem to be doing anything strange or different performance wise...2009 Ford Escape...
There's a reason for the light being on. It's an informational warning that something isn't right. It's not going to get better or go away. It's telling you that something in the system has malfunctioned which may lead to a domino effect and cause another failure that may be even more expensive to deal with later. If it was no big deal, the engineers wouldn't have a trouble warning for it. Don't ignore the problem, deal with it before it costs you even more money. You don't HAVE to take it to a dealer. Any competent auto repair shop should be able to deal with whatever is the problem.
ok get it scanned and post the codes so we can see what we are looking at
8 pages and no trouble codes yet!!!???
Even if you take it to a dealer, if you tell them you had it scanned and it's (such and such) you come off as more knowledgeable and are less likely to get taken for a ride.
My repair shop loves me because I usually bring it in and tell them exactly what it needs
Finding a good honest repair shop who isn't the dealer is a good move too I think, it might be cheaper and easier.
I have 5 codes going off now. Due to a wreck. All O2 sensor related. Other driver's insurance won't pay to clear the check engine light, even though it was not on prior to the wreck. So we're headed to court and the truck is headed to the dealership Friday for the repairs. Ugh. They did say they can sometimes tell WHEN the engine light was tripped and provide evidence, so that will help since I'm already having to take them to court.
At this point the only safe option is to have it stolen for the insurance money. PM me I know a guy
I know you're right...at the same time we have a work car...car where I work...that has had the "service engine" light on for, probably, years.
When the engine light comes on the best thing is to take it to the liquor store, cuz you know it’s going to be expensive
I think you need to adjust the truss rod on the escape...
